If you’ve watched just a few episodes of the Barefoot Contessa, you may have noticed her wardrobe doesn’t change much. She consistently wears these semi-casual collared shirts, often in shades of blue, in every show. It used to irk me a bit. Perhaps they’re easy to film and cook in, but shouldn’t she mix it up? Wear something else?
I was reminded of this thought the other week, when I found myself searching online for striped tops for fall. It made no difference that I already had 3 striped tops sitting in my dresser- I most definitely needed more. And then it occurred to me, how dare I be so hard on Ina? If I never had to leave my apartment, I’d surely live in cozy striped knits and leggings everyday. I also think were I to ever host a cooking show, I’d like to do my bit in a striped top. That’d be most pleasant (should the occasion ever arise).
I recently joined Pinterest, which has enhanced my infatuation for all things striped (among other things), even more. You can check out my boards here. Join at your own risk, welcome to my most recent time suck.
What outfit would you be content wearing everyday?
