On this ‘National Stripes Day’ I thought I’d devote a mini moment on Modern Stripes to my love of stripes themselves. It started out simple a shirt here, a notebook there – before I knew it stripes were covering my bedroom, closet and kitchen. Upon realizing it, my roommate and I thought it was rather hysterical. I was dealing with an actual and gradual unconscious obsession.
Last year when I decided to build a new blog I had been brainstorming names for days and dayssss. Nothing was resonating. Nothing sounded right and I was getting so frustrated (we’ve all been there) to the point that I wanted to give up the project all together… that was until I got a midday text from my roommate with a epiphany – “what about calling it ‘Modern Stripes’? You LOVE stripes!!”
I’ll forever have to thank her because she helped shine a light on something that I already love and naturally gravitate towards. Without her little text I wouldn’t be writing this today AND I wouldn’t be so excited to celebrate National Stripes Day 🎉
So without further or do, enjoy a little stripes-themed montage…
Obviously these images are not my own, but you can find them, their sources & many more here on my ‘stripes’ Pinterest board!
Happy #NationalStripesDay. xx
