Colored tights and brenton stripes

Hi ho, Erin the thrifter here. Just a quick post before I run off too book club! If you are curious, we read An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin. I will let you know how the discussion went!

As I am one (I'm sure) of the last people posting, you probably know that this is a really fun challenge from Everybody, Everywear! We were all challenged to style brenton stripes in our outfits today. I had to look up what they were but when I found out, it was hard to narrow it down. I LOVE stripes. Most of my wardrobe is stripes or plaid. I need to branch out. PS I made this skirt from this tutorial over on Tania's blog. I love her tutorial and I love her style. She takes basic pieces but mixes them in really fun ways. I really want her bike shirt.

Confession: I originally bought this shirt at the thrift store because of Kendi and this post. I think I did alright in making it my own :)

PPS about 10 minutes after these pictures, I got a huge snag in my tights :( I had to quick change (I picked grey) tights. Hey, We Love Colors, want to send me some new purple tights? K thanks.
