Striped Love

{dress, blazer, shoes, necklace, ring- J. Crew, Michael Kors watch, gifted bangle, Jane Hollinger bracelet, gifted pearls}
I am completely defenseless against a striped piece of clothing, especially if it's navy and white. It is actually pathetic how much restraint I have to show when it comes to shopping; if I see something striped it takes all my will power not to try it on. That being said, when it came to this dress, I had to give in. 

I had to have this dress, not only because of its stripes and cinched waist, but also its versatility. It's the most comfortable thing, which means its just as perfect for errands and playtime as it is for work. For my day at the office, I wore this blazer over the dress to up the professional factor. 

I can tell I am going to be living in this dress this summer. I mean, what else could a girl want? Stripes, pockets, a bow, gold buttons, oh and did I mention it was on sale? I'm in love. 

The sky was quite ominous while taking photos. Los Angeles weather, can you please give us summer already?
