Confessions of a Blue and White Stripe Addict
I honestly really didn’t even know I had a problem, until my mom said something. That’s how it usually goes, right?
I’m talking about my blue and white stripe obsession, particularly during the summer. If you don’t believe me, just check out my Instagram feed.
You know what? I am not ashamed and I will not change my ways! There is just something about blue and white stripes, summer, and New England. It all just makes me so happy. Whenever I am in a store, I just gravitate towards anything blue and white stripes. So when I saw this dress in Target, I knew I needed to own it!!
Let’s get into the outfit details!!
For some reason, I have been a HUGE Target girl lately. I never really have been in the past, but I think Target has stepped up their game. They have so many different women’s fashion collections, all with a different vibe. Since my style is very eclectic and is always changing depending what I am doing and where I am, I love shopping them all and mixing them together to create my own personal style.
This dress is from the A New Day line and I just love it! When I saw it, I knew the print was very me, but I wasn’t sure about the length. I am on the shorter side (I’m only 5’4”!) and depending on the maxi dress, it can kinda swallow me up.
But, when I tried it on, it had an entirely different effect. Instead of swallowing me up, it was completely show stopping. I could just picture myself wearing it all summer long and it would be the perfect day dress.
Catch me wearing this walking around Kennebunkport, at all of my summer BBQ’s, and just any time I dang feel like throwing it on!
Round Straw Bag
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I have been so obsessed with this bag since last summer. Not only is it so cute, but it fits so much stuff. I am the type of girl that carries around 10 different lip products, just in case, so I love a bag that can fit my “needs.”
I just love the pop it adds to any outfit. If you need a pop of cuteness or summery style, then you need this bag! I got it last year at Urban. It’s sold out, but I am linking a very similar one here!
Tassel earrings have been a summer go to of mine for a while now! I love big earrings and there is just something about tassel earrings that whisper ‘summer’ into my ear. I think if you are just getting into the trend, buying a white pair is a good start! They will go with all of your outfits and someone is for sure to compliment you on them!
A couple summers back I actually wrote a DIY post about making your own tassel earrings!! You can make a bunch for you and your friends for under $10! Linking that post here. Last summer, I wrote this post about how to get statement earrings for less! You guys know I never pull full price!
Ah, another summer staple! I have worn my Jack Rogers to death. I was trying to think about how long I have had them, and then I remembered I bought them as a little graduation present to myself. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know why this is funny. I posted an Instagram story poll last week asking if I should get new Jack Rogers or Tory Burch Miller sandals as my college graduation present to myself. Tory Burch ended up winning! Post about them coming soon! Apparently whenever I am in a “treat yourself” mood, my go to gift for myself are shoes. I know me too well!
What do you think of this outfit? Thanks for reading!
