A Love for Stripes

in , , , , by Katie Margaret, July 13, 2018
I know that I'm not alone when I say that I LOVE STRIPES!  It's no secret.  For whatever reason, the black and white pattern catches my eye every time.  But each pattern of stripes that I buy is a little different than the rest.  When I go shopping, I am so practical.  I look for clothes that I'm going to get good use out of and that can be worn over and over again.  For me, stripes are always the answer.  


I went on a fast from shopping last month.  After Memorial Day, I told myself that I wasn't allowed to buy any new clothes for the month of June.  I made it through June, and since I'm going on vacation this weekend, I wanted to get a new dress.  I fell in love with this white dress with black stripes (SIMILAR) from TJMaxx.  I felt that the black on white stripes gave it a nautical feel that would be perfect for a beach vacation. 

 The best color to accessorize stripes with in my opinion is a cognac or camel brown.  It always makes the stripes pop.  I've been so light on my jewelry this summer because it's so hot.  Unless I plan on spending the entire day in air conditioning, I usually just wear statement earrings of some sort.  I love these little teardrop earrings I found at Walmart for $2 (SIMILAR).  My necklaces tend to tarnish when I sweat behind my neck in the heat (#cheapjewelryproblems), so instead, I've been using my sunglasses (SIMILAR) as my neck accessory and wearing them in my shirt when they are not over my eyes.  This dress is perfect on its own, but I layered it with my thrifted denim vest (SIMILAR) for this look.  A denim vest makes for a great alternative to a denim jacket in the summer.  It gives the same look, but the sleeveless vest helps when it's so hot out.  For shoes, I went with my favorite slip-on wedges (SIMILAR).  These shoes are so comfy, I can wear them for a full day and my feet don't hurt.
