Wear: Summer Stripes

6/03/2014


Alexa & I wear stripes year-round. I mean, we even have an entire Pinterest board devoted to stripes. But there's something about summertime that makes stripes feel especially appropriate. Am I right? I snagged this striped dress at a local boutique for under $30 (the brand is Audrey 3+1 but I couldn't find it online) and am thinking I might need another easy striped dress for summer. Luckily, there are plenty of affordable options out there. Like this and this (both from Asos), and this J. Crew maxi dress (on sale!).

Growing up, we always spend a few weeks each summer in the Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, where my parents are from. The days were a blur of dips in the pool and picnics at the lake, but one memory that sticks out is the Jack Rogers sandals that everyone wore. I picked up a pair of gold Jack Rogers sandals last summer and dusted them off Memorial Weekend. I went with the classic design, but this updated pair is cute too.

See below for striped dresses I'm loving, and some Jack Rogers, too.

I love this look! Since it is broken up, showing just a bit of skin it really helps the stripes not to be super overwhelming! Great look as always!

Very cute ensemble - stripes are the best!!! I have yet to buy a pair of JRs, but I may have to now.

P.S. Which local boutique did you by the dress from? Is it a San Diego one? :)
