Lots of Stripes.

Is there any pattern easier to wear than stripes? Whether it be vertical or horizontal, I’m a sucker for a bit of stripe action. There’s something really laidback and casual (which is definitely my style) about them, yet they never look lazy or messy. I also think stripes help add a bit of dimension to not only the clothes, but to the wearer as well.

While I do love me some stripes, do not be fooled: not all stripes are created equal, as the classic navy-white combination will always reign supreme (but that’s a post for another day).

Obsessed With: Maggie Marilyn.

So, there I was, minding my own business, scrolling through the recently added section on net-a-ports (as you do), adding things to my wish list, when I kept coming across such distinctly feminine yet not super girly pieces. I soon discovered that coincidentally, all these great pieces I was coming across, were all from New Zealand based brand, Maggie Marilyn. Practically still a baby (it was only launched in 2016), the line is sold exclusively on net-a-porter which helps add to its charm.

      

While I’m not usually a fan of ruffles – I find them too messy and unnecessary – there is something about MM’s ruffled pieces that makes me want to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe with nothing but ruches and frills.

I can’t wait to see more from this brand in the future. Check out more of the collection here and here.
