Stripes are a British summer classic and I have to say that they have always been one of my obsessions! Ever since I was little I have always been drawn to stripy jumpers or ‘pig rustlers’ as I used to call them and now is no exception to that rule.

My jumper is a brilliant find as it’s really lightweight and the colour is a perfect navy blue. I matched it with my simple Skagen watch and some turquoise shorts. I just know that in a few weeks this will be perfect for alfresco suppers in Salcombe and British summertime in general.

    I love the stripes, and you’re right: that’s a perfect striped jumper. My summer staple is pretty similar, but it’s a little too warm where I’m from to wear Breton stripes in the summer! I love dresses and shorts with vertical stripes. Great post!
