I confess, I cannot BELIEVE we didn’t start Fug Nation’s Shopping Posts with a collection of Breton stripes — although we kicked it off with caftans, which does also feel quite apt. Time to rectify that massive oversight on my part.  Did putting this together teach me that I probably need a tiny box clutch in stripes? YES IT DID. Did I spend several hours trying to find a cute pair of Breton striped pants before giving up? You bet. Did I link half of Boden’s stock, half of which I already own? You know that I did.

In addition to the aforementioned, I bring you so many striped tops! Striped dresses! Striped skirts — I really want this one even though I rarely leave the house! Striped umbrellas! Striped bathing suits! (I have one from J Crew that they don’t seem to be selling anymore, but it rocks; I did include a striped version of a swimsuit I got from Boden this year and love.) Striped sunglasses! ALL STRIPES ALL THE TIME.

[If there’s a big white space below this sentence and you can’t see the delicious stripes, try refreshing your browser; they should pop right up. Use that little arrow on the right of the item to zip through them all; click on the photo to go to the product page. You know how this works!]

Now we just need to have a Fug National Cruise, because between the all stripes and the all caftans, our wardrobe is set? Other than the giant floppy hats. And cocktail rings. And crazy sandals. Okay, plenty of ground left to cover — you’re right.

As a general housekeeping note: This is not a sponsored post, and we were not paid to include any of these items. Our striped allegiances are ours alone and are quite longstanding. Like most websites, GFY uses affiliate links where available, but that only means we get a tiny bonus if you click through and buy something. I can assure you that all stripes were personally chosen by me while I sat around drinking La Croix and watching the new season of Orange Is The New Black.
