I'm not much of a pattern-mixer, but I do like the subtlety of stripes-on-stripes. It makes the most of my suitcase-closet to pair together some of my many striped things, and something about mixing patterned garments feels like effortless style (even if that is literally because it took very little effort to choose one of my two sweaters to wear with this dress). Normally there's almost no need for sweaters in the summer, but I somehow roped my boyfriend into seeing Crazy, Stupid, Love with me, so I had to ward off the delicious A.C.-chill in the theatre. I loved the movie (grad student hesitations about neat male-female pairings aside) and I think Emma Stone is fantastic--have you seen it?
