When I get ask about the stylish women that inspire me, I always think about my mum and my late grandmother. My grandmother was always very put together and I barely ever saw her without makeup -something I’ve definitely inherited from her! And when it comes to my mum, I can’t think of any other word than chic. My mum is always chic, no matter what she’s doing. I swear she even looks chic when she’s gardening!
And one thing that I’ve definitely inherited from her, is the love for stripes. My mum always has to best striped pieces, from classic blue & white St James tops to woven espadrilles for summer. So when I got this top earlier this year, it immediately made me think about her. While it has these classic black and white stripes, the fact that the collar has a real sport vibe to it makes it a whole lot more casual. I usually pair if with a pair of black denim jeans but I can’t wait to wear it tucked into a skirt once the weather warms up!
