Apparently I really like stripes.  Although I honestly didn’t realize how many striped items I own until I was creating my capsule wardrobe for April.  Not only did I include the striped items pictured here in my capsule, I also have a striped maxi dress and pin striped shorts.  I may have gone a little overboard with the stripes.  And who says that horizontal stripes can’t be flattering?  I got so many compliments when I wore this stripey dress to work on April 9.

What do you think about wearing stripes?  Do you steer clear of them because of the myth that horizontal stripes always look bad?  Or are you like me and just say screw it?
