Showing One’s Stripes
We went to Nantucket over the Memorial Day weekend. Now, I shouldn’t have been surprised by the amount of stripes worn on Nantucket that weekend. After all, Nantucket was originally a whaling and fishing community. Plus, when we were visiting a sailing race was going on, so the ubiquity of stripes shouldn’t have been surprising at all….however it was. I couldn’t walk a few steps (no joke) without seeing someone in stripes. There were striped shoes, striped t-shirts, striped dresses, striped scarves….thankfully no striped pants. This is all to say that by the time we left the island, I was very over striped. Though of course, that didn’t stop me from photographing someone in stripes.
I know! I know! If I was sick of stripes why did I take a picture of someone wearing stripes?! Well, look at Jordan. She is outfitted in everything that to me screams vacation….And once I saw her, I simply had to photograph her. So you see, I can put aside my personal issues in order to report street style to you *smiles*.
By the way, Jordan’s dress and shoes are from JCrew and her bag is from Anthropologie.
