So funny story about this striped sweatshirt. I was in Macy’s last weekend and noticed this shirt on a clearance rack. I really liked the stripes and crocheted lace on the sleeves, but the the thing that really won me over was the the pretty drapey fabric at the bottom. When I held it up, it looked like I was wearing anther long blouse under it. Note: I did not try it on at the store. I’m thinking all is honky dory. After getting home I tried it on, and only then realized, that the drapey fabric that I loved, is only on the back!! Sweatshirt surprise. Surprise! The fabric is only on the back! I toyed with returning it, but it seemed happy in my closet. So, it stayed.
I bought this striped dress at Old Navy and am thrilled with it! As a matter of fact, I’m so thrilled that I have decided to make next week “Striped Dress Week” on the blog! I ‘m going to feature a few different ways to where this dress as well as a couple of others. I hope you will all come back for some stripe style inspiration!

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Reminds us to : “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” When we make a conscious decision to do God’s will, we begin to see people in a new perspective. When do God’s will, it becomes easier to be joyful and thankful. Win-Win.
Have a lovely day my friends!
