I love this dress y’all. I mean, probably no one is surprised by that. Navy and white? Check. Stripes? Check. Fit and flare action? Check. Pockets? Check! I also like that it’s both linen and lined, which is basically a necessity in the sweaty Texas summer. I love dresses that you can throw on and go and feel put together, but that also lend themselves to being styled. I’ve actually already worn this dress a couple of times, and I wore it differently both times. So many options!
As I was hanging up my clothes on Sunday, I realized I had a handful of similar dresses on hangers. I walked out into the kitchen where Dago was and asked him “do you think I like blue dresses?” Apparently I have a thing for blue dresses right now, because I have like five all of a sudden. Blue isn’t a color I’ve ever been particularly drawn to (save maybe 2nd grade when it was my favorite color for a week), but I can’t say I’m mad about this recent turn of colors in my closet. Blue goes with pretty much everything and it plays nicely with other colors. It’s so funny to see how one’s person style evolves, especially as their shopping habits change.
Do you ever notice unintentional trends in what you add to your closet?
