Outfit of the Day: The Stripe Triumph

Pause for reaction. Until recently, I haven't touched stripes with a 10 ft pole, but I've always eyed them with jealousy of those who could safely sport them.

And then I thought... Maybe if I layer, and the stripes are covered in the most high-danger zones (stomach, hips), I could pull it off?

I've since found that this look works for me, and I am now embracing stripes in all colors and sizes. Style rules, be damned!
