September Stripes

Irish Fashion Stripes 3
It’s September!!!!! Am I the only one that thinks that’s a little crazy? The year is just flying by and in a few short weeks I’ll be en route to NYC!! There’s so much to do before I go… find a job, find accommodation, have a major wardrobe clear out, sell my car… the list goes on and on but I’m sure (hoping) it’ll all work out. 🙂

With the start of September, I’m sure you are all hearing a lot about transitioning from summer to autumn/fall clothes. Here in Ireland we don’t tend to get long periods of extreme weather so it probably doesn’t apply as much as in other parts of the world. The outfit I’m wearing here is the perfect example of something you could easily find me wearing in spring, summer or autumn (you’d definitely need to add a jacket or coat in winter). I’ve really taken a shine to stripes lately and this top from Blackfive is the latest one I’ve added to my collection. I really love this top… the stripes are a little thicker than any of my other tops (see here, herehere, and here), the material is really beautiful, the fit is great, and style and shape are perfect. The high neckline is also great for a little extra warmth as the temperatures start to drop. Adding a shirt and boots to a look like I have here is a great way to move from summer to autumn and, as I love a splash of colour in my outfits, I added a pop of pink with my bag to complete the look.

I hope you like it,

    I can’t believe that it’s September already too! I just wrote about that! I love your outfit. Casually elegant. Those shoes are hot and the denim works with the stripe blouse. Nicely done. Good luck in one of my favorite cities, NY. I lived all over in NY and worked in Manhattan for quite a bit and had a blast! You will fit in well!

    […] can wear it to college during the day and then use to cover up on night out. Like I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I have a little thing for stripes at the moment and this crop top is also a great versatile piece […]
