Happy almost Friday Loves! I hope today finds you well and ready for the weekend! Today I am featuring a high-low striped dress with navy espadrilles, and a lattice detailed bucket bag! Nothing says summer casual like nautical stripes!
My classic nautical stripes have been updated with the high-low cut that I find really comfortable, especially when at the beach. I like the extra coverage in the back, wherever I am though. I have only worn this to get some sun on my roof deck, which is where these photos were taken. The beach, and up here on the roof, where others are clad in bikinis, are the only places I feel comfortable wearing something this short. I wore this with espadrilles, by Eric Michael via Zulily.com, seen below. They are sold out, but I love these by Tory Burch.
I bought this high-low striped dress at a place called Ricos's. You may recall my recent post featuring mixed stripes. I bought both dresses there for $15.00. This little shop also sells wholesale -so it is not like a shop you normally visit; but there was a return policy, a nice cashier, and the prices are amazing. Here is a shot of the other dresses I had to choose from, as you do, if you are in or near Manhattan. It is located at 1149 Broadway near 26th street. You could also look here.
You do have a steam the dress a bit, but I find that true with most things I buy. Come to think of it- that is a pet peeve. You can buy a dress and it is perfect , and then when you get it home, even if it is folded carefully with tissue, it needs some tending. I always ask if I can take in on a hanger, and many stores are fine with that. Sorry for the tangent! I wonder if that is just me?
Here are some detail shots of the high-low striped dress. I am wearing two necklaces that I got from my sister. I am sorry I do not know much about them. My three stone ring came from Encore on Madison Avenue. The gems are genuine and the price was great!
It was a nice day to be outside on the roof deck. I love to see my neighbors there, and look out to see the busy sidewalks, and views of the city from the 23rd floor. I always feel small when I am high up, there is so much around me! But it is a nice and helpful perspective.
So what stripes are you wearing ladies? Would you be up to wearing a high-low striped dress? Have a wonderful weekend, and hats off to you! ;)
