Weekly Obsessions: Stripes for Days

by Ally- Life as I know it, 9:32 AM
I feel like this is the time of year you start searching for warmer weather clothes. You're just about over the cold and ready for the heat. I think stripes are great because they're so versatile for any season. You can add a jacket to a striped dress if it's still chilly out. If it's summertime and hot, you can wear sandals and a hat with the exact same dress. The best part is stripes never go out of style so feel free to spend a bit more money on a striped top or dress, you'll have it forever.

Is this not the perfect striped dress for summer? If it's still cold out, add a jean jacket and you're out the door.

LIV Claude Romper

Rompers have always been so hard for me to wear since I'm tall but doesn't mean I don't stop shopping for them! I love how this romper has long sleeves. You could dress it up with wedges for a night our or wear it with sandals during the day.

Zinke Andi One Piece

I just love one pieces, first time you can lay on the beach and not worry about sucking in your stomach. The cut out sides really keep it sexy and from the back you wouldn't even know you're wearing a one piece. 

J.O.A. Striped Jacquard Top

The perfect striped top to wear with white jeans or cut off shorts. I find this J.O.A. brand at TJ Maxx/Marshalls all the time too. 

Norma Kamali Kamali Kulture Go Racer Back Dress

I think racer back dresses and tops are so flattering. They don't make it easy to wear a bra but I do love the way they look. 

Clare V. Patriot Clutch

Of course I can't talk about stripes without showing the infamous Clare V. striped clutch. I would love this bag for summer with white jeans. 

One of my favorite tops ever the Joie Ashlee top is on crazy sale right own. I own it in more colors than I'd like to admit but have never seen the price this low before. FYI it runs big, I wear a small or even an X small.

Different colors but same shirts.
