I plead guilty to wearing stripes way too much lately, and specifically this shirt! I love today's baby blue and mustard combo based on the inspiration, and in general I'm all for wearing things repeatedly so that beautiful clothes don't go to waste. But I'm in a creative rut the size of the Grand Canyon lately and the stripes thing just has to stop. (Yep, I traded my bubble necklaces addiction for a stripes addiction.) What items do you find yourself repeating (too) often?

Some good news though:  I arrived in Roatan last night for vacation. Because of the aforementioned rut I thought this would be the worst time ever to take a vacation, but I'm already experiencing the opposite. Time off to recharge is exactly what the doctor ordered. I'll be sharing vacation outfits in bits and pieces over the next week - some days I might skip posts altogether, and I really wish I had been more organized and set up guest bloggers like the past two years, but things have been way too hectic lately (my apologies). I'm already stewing up some pretty big ideas though that I think will be just the thing to kick butt when I return. For now, from Roatan, have a great week. :-)
