I Got Stripes

Striped Shirt with Jeans“I got stripes/stripes around my shoulders/ I got chains/ Chains around my feet.” Johnny Cash is one of my favorite musical artists, and I’d like to dedicate this post to him. Of course, my stripes aren’t like the ones he references, but I can’t help but think of that song whenever I wear them.

In addition, these jeans have the best fit ever! I’ve had great luck with AG denim in that the fit and price are always right. Jeans are so expensive nowadays, no? I remember when one of my equally clothes-obsessed girlfriends from highschool and I used to be able to find jeans for $10 or $20 a pair at the Gap. Nowadays even Gap jeans border designer prices! Ah, the good old days… I was able to get these bad boys for half off 🙂

Another thing I love about this ensemble is that it’s all made with organic cotton. I’m not a stickler for organic goods, but I do try! I actually think the cotton is softer and stronger than the “regular” stuff. And to know that I’m doing something good for my body and the environment fosters a great feeling! Meredith and I were chatting yesterday about how much easier it is to find organic clothes for casual looks rather than office ones. Sad but true! I am challenging myself to put together a work outfit that’s entirely (or almost) made of organic materials. When I do, I’ll be sure to post it.

  1. Love the neckline of the shirt and the stripes! Ballet necklines are so ladylike and flattering.

  2. That shirt looks great on you! I wish you luck with your search for work appropriate organic clothes, it is so hard!

    • I bet! Now I *have* to find them. I bet it’s because most work clothes are some sort of poly blend and not made of cotton – and I think poly blend is inherently not organic. But I will keep you posted!
