The Stripes Experiment

I am absolutely positively head over heels in love with stripes. It's actually quite unhealthy. Every time I gravitate towards another striped item j.rue give me the look, as in, "don't even think about it."

But really, can one have too many striped things? I think not.

The Stripes Experiment isn't to wean me off stripes, in fact quite the opposite. I'm going to celebrate my love for stripes and see how many consecutive days in a row I can wear stripes. How's that for feeding an addiction? I do plan to not buy anything striped during this experiment, you know, for a good cause or something.

Anyone want to play along?

Here are the official rules:

1. At least on striped clothing item must be worn each and every day of the experiment.

2. Striped bags, sunglasses,  etc. do not count. Socks and shoes do. Why? Because, I don't really get to make up the rules of many things, so I'm taking fully bossy advantage.

3. Striped items can only be worn once during the experiment.

4. No buying extra striped items during the experiment {I know it's difficult}. That would be cheating, obv.

5. It's probably in your best interest to not wear multiple items of striped nature, but hey, I'll leave that one up to you.

6. EXTRA {because I haven't decided if I want to this yet}: take a picture of you in your stripes every day. Post them after after you've run out of striped laden clothing. Then, brag about how long you carried out the stripe experiment.

If you can make it longer than 10 days, because that is the conservative goal I set for myself, then you win eternal stripe induced glory.

Sound good?

p.s. j.rue is starting his last undergraduate final {ever}  RIGHT NOW! By 10 am, he'll be a full blown grown-up and then, well, what's next?
