French Breton Striped Shirt

Found this fantastic mosaic post over on Completely Coastal!
I've always been a fan of the blue-and-white striped sailor shirt. 
Coco Chanel is given credit for introducing the old Brenton styled French sailor shirt to
the fashion world in 1917...
It is amazing how long this look has persisted in the fashion world, 
and JCrew has adopted it whole-heartedly!

Still lovin' this Stripe Sequin Boatneck shirt from JCrew.
