Candy Striper Sunday

No, this post is not about me volunteering at the local hospital (although, if I were able to wear a candy striper shift dress I might sign up right now. ) I asked B what he thought about when he heard "red and white stripes" and his response was, "candy cane, mime, and barber shop." Hmmm, good answers B, but we are so not on the same page here.
I'm thinking more about nautical, preppy, fancy yachts and such. You know, think of a scene with a bunch of wealthy folk drinking mojitos and listening to Jimmy Buffett and little ole me standing out like a sore thumb with my arm full of tatoos and wishing I could throw myself overboard where I'd probably be more comfortable. How does this tie into red and white stripes? Well, I might be uncomfortable in this hypothetical, sleep deprived, overworked, imaginery hallucination, but I'm still stylish... IN STRIPES OF COURSE.
Let's see what Etsy has to offer...
This tote bag would be perfect for a beachy look at the gym, supermarket, or used as an overnight bag.
Sailor Tote Bag $27

This adorable dress looks incredibly comfortable.
Red and Beige Striped Dress $28 (and it's a steal!)
via My Baju
The design of this little coin purse is simple, yet perfectly nautical.
via Granny Purse
My ginormous feet (clown feet is what my sister likes to call them) won't fit into these beauties, but if they could, I would have already bought them.
Red and White Striped Sandals size 6.5
via Second Thoughts
I'm a huge fan of children's vintage books, but I've never seen them like this...
Tie my shoe...upcycled story book pillow $38
via Raven Wren
This sheer top is perfect of summer and the fun neckline makes it extra special.
Red and White Stripes Tunic Shirt $23
via Platypi Vintage
Forget the little polka dotted bikini, bring on the stripes!
Red strip boy short bikini in custom bra sizes $80
via Harajuku
So what do you think about red and white stripes, yay or nay?
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
