Now, if there's something I like to wear, it's a stripy t-shirt. You may have noticed my Aubin and Wills number cropping up a fair few times, and I nabbed a cheap H+M one when they were on offer last year, so I think I've proved that I wear them enough to invest in another (or head to bretons anonymous). When it comes to stripes, Petit Bateau know what they're doing, and I'd always wanted one of their marinières (and yellow rain coats, but we'll save that for another day) to finish off my collection, but they're pretty pricey. When I saw they had a store in Munich, I made the mistake of heading in during the January sales, and ended up making a rather rash purchase upon seeing the 50% off signs, but I'd argue that it happens to the best of us. I'm generally a pretty thrifty shopper, and stick to googling for voucher codes when buying online, or, my personal favourite, rummaging through the shelves of charity shops, but every once in a while it's nice to treat yourself to something a little more luxe. This Petit Bateau marinière (posh word for stripy top) is certainly a lot thicker than the H+M one, and is so soft inside that you can tell they make a lot of clothes for children and babies. But enough of me trying to justify this purchase, we all know it's completely down to it having a pocket.


  1. You look gorgeous, as always! I absolutely adore those boots, I think I have a heeled ankle boot addiction developing.


  2. Love the stripes, especially the detailing of the little pocket. The pop of blue with the hat is a nice touch. Great blog.

  17. Yay for stripy tops! I don't think I've found anything yet that wouldn't go with stripes. Mine are wearing thin too so I think one of these might be a wise investment, especially if they're such good quality. I see that you're from Munich - I've only been to the city once but it's such a lovely place! Followed you on bloglovin and I'm looking forward to reading more pretty posts!
