stripes are a closet essential of mine. but when i find a dress with this iconic pattern i take notice. add super comfy terry knit into the mix, and well, this dress came home with me. one detail that grabbled my attention is the subtle pop of color from the zipper – it’s red! and since i’ve been on the lookout for a pair of red flats since forever these suede pointy-toes also found their way into the shopping bag. guess what you will be seeing in the coming months… today, i kept the ootd super simple and ready to transition into fall with the addition of a scarf. foulard is a traditional menswear pattern so i couldn’t resist a little pattern mix by pairing it with this sporty stripe. and, yes, the little black bag is back in action. because it works – why not have a lbb? it goes with everything. now that monday is up and running we’ll just have to make it a good one!
