What’s New?

I’m not much of a shopper, but after months of having access to little more than what is at Wal-Mart and TJ Maxx, it’s a treat to venture into Houston’s retail world. It’s fun to browse and get a feel for what’s new.

In case you’ve haven’t noticed, stripes are everywhere,

in fashion,

in home accessories,

in items just for fun

or for inside and out

It doesn’t matter whether they are straight

or offset

or diagonal.

They work in all kinds of ways.

Did I follow the trend?  You bet.

With new sheets from West Elm

and a spunky tee from Anthropologie, I’m in.

Joining the fun at Seasonal Sundays and Simply Link Party

i love your thoughts, so jump right in and share yours

  1. I’ve always loved striped tops…sort of a sailor look to them. You made me look around my house and realize that I’m obviously not up to date with the trend!

  2. Love the stripey top, very chic!

  3. I love stripes…not so much in clothing, but on everything else. Great inspirational photos. Love the basket and pillows. Thanks for visiting and leaving such a nice comment.

  4. I’m not a big shopper either but those are good finds there. I tend to like towels, bowls and vases. Remember your Groupons. 🙂

  7. I like the Anthropologie tee and the sheets. I haven’t been shopping in a long time. Thanks for the ideas. Are you still in Maine? Hope you have a great week. I am outside sitting in the sun. It is around 60 here today. Yesterday got up to 69. The flowers are opening like spring but I know we will have some more cool weather.

    1. In Houston right now enjoying the beautiful weather. Though there will be some off days, it is lovely here until midMay. Flowering trees are beginning to bloom now….lovely.
