Wish I Was Wearing No. 3 :: New Nautical

Every spring that comes around, I find myself reaching for my favorite bretton-stripe tee. It's classic white and navy, perfect 3/4 sleeve with a slight boat neck. It's been with me on shopping trips, lunch dates, and even job interviews layered under a navy blazer. This summer, I know I won't escape that classic blue and white stripe pattern, so I want to incorporate it in different ways. Rather than throw on my favorite tee, I love the idea of doing a boldly striped dress. I put together three looks with three striped dresses below, each using items from my Spring Edit

For spring, I love the idea of dressing up this dress with a ladylike handbag and a fun, patterned pump. I'd also love to dress it down with a pair of beige espadrille flats or denim jacket.

I love the idea of styling this dress as more casual, beach-y option. I'd love to pattern-mix it with this polka dot clutch and pair the combo with a pair of black and white textured sandals.

This might be my favorite look of the three! I love love love the idea of this striped kimono dress for summer, especially with a structured tan bag and beige espadrille flats. I feel like this is an outfit that would easily replace my usual striped tee-jeans-flip-flops look I usually go for! Perfect for shopping, lunch, even work!
