There is something classic about a navy and white striped tee, it always works. If you’re stuck in the “stripes make me look fat” mind set…well then you haven’t tried one on in about 10 years! Get your ass up and go to your favorite stores like: Gap, Madewell, Saks, Ann Taylor, and Anthropologie. One of them will have the most perfect striped top you can wear with everything. Obviously I wore my favorite Zara skort and some awesome Charles David booties I found at Nordstrom Rack (killer deal)! If you’re really craving that sailor-ish look add a bright scarf. Breaking old stereotypes like the “stripes make me fat” one is hard but don’t be a wimp people!
It is probably no surprise that I am a true fan of any outlandish print, this fruit dress from Madewell (SHOP IT HERE) is no exception. Not only is it lady like and sweet, but it has cut outs to make it a little more interesting. If I owned this dress I would probably style it with accessories similar to the ones above. Pick your accessories wisely because it would be easy for this outfit to go downhill fast! The best part about this dress is that it is only $128 buckeroos! Check out http://madewell.com for other Summer dress options.
Oh and PS…Madewell is having a sale!

Madewell is one of my favorite stores for comfortable and cute clothes, and the prices are great too! My favorite pieces are the pink short sleeve pull over sweater and the striped shorts, naturally I want to wear them together! Did you know that Madewell and Keds teamed up to create some super cute tennis shoes for Spring? Well I am obsessed with the multi-colored striped pair above! So whether you wear shorts or dresses Madewell has you covered for spring.
SUMMER TIME IS FOR LAYING OUT BY THE POOL, DRINKING MARGARITAS ON A BOAT, AND ENJOYING SUMMER CONCERTS AND FESTIVALS. I’VE BEEN ASKED ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WHAT TO WEAR TO SUMMER CONCERTS, AND THERE ARE 3 THINGS TO THINK ABOUT WHEN HITTING UP THE CONCERT SCENE:
1) WHAT TYPE OF CONCERT ARE YOU GOING TO? IS IT A OUTDOOR FESTIVAL, SMALL INTIMATE SHOW, OR A STADIUM FILLED WITH FANS?
2) WILL YOU BE STANDING, SITTING, DANCING, OR DRINKING?
3) THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: THINK ABOUT YOUR AGE LADIES! ITS NOT HARD TO DRESS TRENDY AND STYLISH, YOU DONT HAVE TO DIG THROUGH YOUR DAUGHTER’S CLOSET.
HERE ARE SOME IDEAS FOR STYLING YOUR CONCERT LOOKS USING MY 3 RULES ABOVE:
*OUTDOOR FESTIVAL: THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WHEN GETTING READY FOR AN OUTDOOR ALL WEEKEND EVENT IS COMFORTABLE SHOES! PAIR THEM WITH SHORTS AND A LOOSE FITTING TOP OR A SUN DRESS. HERE ARE SOME STYLES I LOVE FOR CONCERTS:
*STADIUM CONCERT: BIG CONCERTS HAPPEN EVERY SUMMER AND THEY PACK AUDATORIUMS ALL OVER THE WORLD. THERE IS DANCING AND SINGING AND ALOT OF STANDING, BUT FOR FLASHY SHOWS LIKE THESE YOU WANT TO STEP UP YOUR GAME A LITTLE. HERE ARE SOME FLASHY OUTFITS FOR YOU, YOUR FRIENDS, AND YOUR MOM:
FOR YOUR ROCK CONCERTS-
FOR YOUR POP CONCERTS-
AND FOR ALL OF THE WONDERFUL MOTHERS-
