There is no basic that I love more than a striped shirt. It is something I am constantly reaching for on most weekends to stay comfy. It makes for a great summer shirt but will go great with a jean or military jacket in early fall. Since my striped shirts are on constant rotation, I make sure I have one that will last a long time. Saint James is a company that started in Saint James, Normandy, a town known for its extensive weaving and draping traditions. It all started with the making of the fisherman sweater which had to withstand long days and nights at sea. Fast forward more than 150 years later, the brand continues to produce high quality nautical silhouettes. It was quite fitting that these pics were taken before heading to the Fisherman’s Wharf at Cape May Harbour (where I ate my first 2 lb lobster!).
I picked up this Saint James Women’s Marine-Neige Minquiers 10 (also available here) at Tuckernuck.com. Tuckernuck is an online website that prides itself in selling All-American lifestyle brands (it is also headquartered here in Washington DC!). Of course I wore this shirt with my favorite Ralph Lauren white jeans and my Vans (also love these) which were the perfect compliment to this casual look.
