Confession: I am not much for stripes. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE stripes on EVERYONE ELSE, and will wear them on occasion, but honestly, they just don’t feel like “me”. As my style has evolved over the years, it’s become clear that my comfort zone sways the bohemian direction; unpredictable and a little messy. Perhaps stripes, in their perfection, are a bit too predictable for me. It’s strange, I get compliments when I wear a stripe something, but I feel much more myself in a beautiful floral or graphic print. Once in awhile I’ll stumble upon a piece, that despite the stripe factor, I love the styling – as is what happened with today’s dress.
Styled today with a vintage Kate Spade bag, un-earthed while thrifting with Kim of Northern California Style – the day after the passing of Kate Spade…how could I say no? You’ve seen me wear these Tory Burch Wedge Miller Sandals before – yes, they are a favorite! I gave my Aviators a rest, swapping them out for a pair of round nude colored sunnies from Ferragmo. Simple silver hoops and bangle stack allow a dress such as this, to speak for itself.
As much as I love how this dress looks on, I continue to pull my floral and bohemian print dresses out time and time again. It’s curious. Do you wear stripes? Do you find you gravitate more in one direction; florals or stripes? Do you think our personalities play a role in the prints we chose to wear?
