Are you sick of your closet? Been there, done that – is it all starting to look a bit stale?
In times like these, I am grateful for a dress like this, to brighten my mood.
How can I not feel happy, wearing sunny yellow stripes all day long?
In the heat of summer, a lightweight silk dress is so comfortable and easy to wear.
In lieu of a binding strapless bra,
I opted for a racerback bralette – for comfort, and I kinda like the straps in the back for interest.

Pop on a denim jacket,
which can be tied around your waist, when the afternoon heat sets in.

Boden, has the BEST bags,
inside and out.
The stripe lining you see in this bag, is typical of Boden’s fun details.

You’ve seen ’em before – these neutral Michael Kors Toe Ring sandals have been my go-to, all summer long.

Wow , what great sunshine photos with an arty style… Good job! so i love the bralette for summer since straps always seem to show anyway…may as well just let them with a bralette…where is the best place to get them?
A happy dress indeed! I love stripes! And yellow truly is a happy color! You styled the dress perfectly!
