Rough & Tumble

I love a good mix of feminine and masculine.

I love big boots with girly dresses, socks and heels, blazers and gowns, stilettos and baggy jeans.

My latest obsession?  Rugby stripes.

Now, anyone who has ever been within 50 yards of me knows that my passion for stripes (particularly horizontal) runs deep. Rugby stripes and sweaters are the ultra-masculine version of this obsession and does not escape my nightly dreams.

Rugby stripes conjure up images of caked mud, filthy fabric, sweat, and rough skin to me. Paired with skinny jeans and heels – that might just be my favorite idea ever.

What are your thoughts on rugby stripes?

  • loooovveee rugby stripes, stripes and cheetah print are about the only patterns allowed in my closet, and snakeskin on my shoes :) I’m still on the hunt for a perfect rugby shirt, like one of the ones from *duh* Rugby that they’re known for.

  • Girl looks pretty in the dress but I am not sure I would look the same. I have no fair complexions but not black too. I guess the right topshop striped midi dress will look good on me :). Can I buy it online?

    Thanks
