Stripes are a staple that will never date and forever stay in style for all seasons. Here at Joules, we’re a huge fan of the classic stripe and heard on the grapevine that the wonderful lifestyle blogger, Capture By Lucy is too. So we asked Lucy to share with the Joules Journal how her and her lovely family wear their stripes.
Simple pleasures and stripes is how our spring is shaping up. Afternoons in the garden, making up new games on the makeshift swing and trying to get them to keep their shoes on! It’s all endless grass stains when it comes to my pair but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I remember chasing my brother and sister around the park playing tag. Never ending games of hide and seek, or forty-forty as we called it, racing back to the look out post before the seeker spotted you, and being called in at dusk by my mum who must have felt like I do when I watch them giggling and tearing through the freshly cut grass.
I love my matching pair and love finding clothes for them in both sizes, mixing and matching designs and seeing a sea of stripes in the wardrobe. I’ve always dressed my sons like little boys, bright colours, traditional blues that bring out the golden strands in Ollie’s hair. His floppy fringe that is just waiting to be sun kissed again and I often choose classic prints, handing down Sammy’s old t-shirts and shorts to Ollie, reliving all the lovely memories I have of Sammy in them.
Sammy is all my side of the family and Ollie looks just like my husband, Rich. I love the matching mini me style and at last I’ve found a dress which will see me through from spring to summer and into September that coordinates with my brood! We Heaths are ship shape for spring.
I can’t wait to kick our flip-flops off on the sand in Dorset in the summer, but for now we are more than happy to settle for these golden spring days and flowerbeds full of Forget-me-nots.
How do you like to wear your stripes?
