So delighted that I was to squeeze back into my ‘before baby‘ jeans, I decided it was time to banish all traces of maternity clothing from my wardrobe. I have replaced my maternity wardrobe with all things stripey…
Just a few Bretons from my expanding collection.My stripe obsession continues on instagram! (@fromcity2suburb)
‘Not ANOTHER stripey top!‘ says husband every time.
I love a good stripe me. I do have a Breton obsession. Just take a look at my instagram feed – photos of me and stripes are the norm! I have tried to vary my Breton habit. I’ve branched out from the classic blue and white stripe to a Breton with a twist. I do have a wee green one, a red one, one with some yellow spots, a few with some glitter spots, a couple with some glitter stripes and my favourite one of all with the floral print. Boden is my favourite place for my beloved Breton, with Joules coming in second.
I like a boxy shaped top, not too fitted and not too baggy. Boden Bretons for me are perfect. I love their soft cotton and flattering dipped hem with the split. Boden is THE place to go if you fancy a playful statement Breton. Stripes with prints. Stripes with patterns. Stripes with glitter. So many fun designs to choose from and oh so hard to resist. I still get that flutter of excitement each time the postman hands me my spotty parcel from Johnnie B!
For a more casual daytime Breton, Joules are fantastic. I have quite a few of their Harbour Tops which are great quality and wash really well. Slightly thicker than a normal tee but not as heavy as a sweatshirt they are perfect for cool Autumn days.
My wardrobe will never have too many stripes. I am currently eyeing up Boden’s new ‘Make A Statement‘ Bretons pictured above. I love the cute glitter pocket with red trim and the black and white spots, both perfect to dress up for nighttime.
Are you a Breton fan? Which is your favourite? If you like my new tops take a look at my mama wardrobe board on Pinterst where you will see more of the clothes I have my eye on.
