Dear Navy and White Stripes,
I seriously do not know how to quit you.
(For reals. If I buy one more striped shirt I think I may be committed.)

Truly inspiring images Erin! You are always really good at finding great images for your readers to be inspired of. Thx.
just before I could’ve been committed, i moved onto orange and white stripes! i’ll stay with that for awhile until the ocd kicks in on that combo and I have to move to another :)
Ekkk! I would love that car!
I second that and remain a hopeless addict myself! A little sailor within!
Navy and White stripes are such a classic pattern! I love them, they remind me of summers at my cottage.
HA HA! I love this post. I think I’m with you on your last confession. I have a stack of them in the closet and all I can think about is how I need more because one has a hole, the other isn’t long enough, etc.
Oh god, you just spoke for me. It’s such a problem. It’s getting to the point where I can’t even distinguish if something is cute/pretty/actually appealing, I just see the stripes and I’m instantly sold.
so classic, and somehow always looks fresh every spring!
Great post! I love me some navy and white stripes, too. Any idea where the trench coat is from in the second to last picture?? I. Must. Have!
haha i love this combo on other people but it’s just a little too cliche prep for me
in dramatic fashion
I have the same problem… BUT every time I buy a striped shirt one of my sisters comes over and sneaks it out of my closet and I never see it again. So yea, I buy many but have none!
Such beautiful images, Erin!
eating healthy diets…

Same here! I’ve decided it’s fine to wear a uniform, a la Michael Kors. :)
Right there with you! I also have a white t-shirt obsession :)
what is the source for the 1st image (sweater on the top left)?
You. Are. Not. Alone. I have a drawer dedicated to my blue and white striped sweaters, jerseys, etc. OBSESSED.

…. i’m with ya!
Can you list sources for your images? I would love to know where some of the clothes are from.
I am SO glad that someone else shares my addiction to navy and white stripes!

c’est si bon! navy & white stripes are so chic. hopelessly timeless. impossibly classic. love them.
@Gretchen, Thank you!!
Suellen Raniero here. Just thought that I would mention this site as well http://www.thecarhunters.com/. Have a great day!
Couldn’t agree more – this spring I keep gravitating towards navy and white. Such a simple fresh style that works on most people!
i’m right there with you. if Navy and White Stripes is wrong, i don’t want to be right.
I see a striped dress and denim jacket in my future!!!
I love blue and white stripes! so classic. i need that guest/kids bedroom at some point in my life.
p.s. i immediately sent this to my roommate, because she has a similar stripes-addiction. i (and her mom, actually!) yell at her every time she buys a new one!
ERIN, love love love your post! I’ve made stripes my life’s work – and would love you to check out http://www.stripedshirt.com. Navy and white, and 13 other color combos right now. I’d love to get you a shirt to try. Seriously. Love the post, and all the amazing pics!
With you all the way I am completely addicted to striped jersey. I also want to do a horizontal striped hallway – DH not keen. My excuse (if one was ever needed) is that I live by the sea…. I am just as hopelessly committed to navy & red stripes too. Also bought a navy and yellow striped boat neck at the beginning of the year. As I am expecting I’m hoping/planning for a coastal/nautical nursery. Striped ceiling is the plan for us….
Story of my life, to a T. It’s getting to be disgusting but there’s just something so classically perfect about them that they’re totally irresistible.
aahhh me too! all the cute dresses pictured- where can i get them?!
I have been doing the same since December 2010 with black and white stripes! What is wrong with me? I have too many shirts and shirt dresses now! I am so not creative. But they are so simple and classic!
