My style as of late: I believe in simple pieces that can be paired many different ways. I believe in only having items in my closet that make me feel 100% every time I slip them on. I believe in taking style chances by mixing & matching what you already have. And I believe in stripes.

I have been a long time lover of stripes, & as I was searching for the last time I paired this scarf with a striped dress (yes, I'm that predictable), I found many favorite striped dress favorites from my blog archives. Surprisingly almost all of these pieces have survived every closet purge over the past 7 years - evidence that they are definitely in line with my style philosophy above.

May 2013: I picked up this neck scarf (as worn in the outfit above) in 2009 while traveling through Venice, and it is such an amazing example of tying memories to things. I have a hard time finding souvenirs on trips, but now I'm thinking that a travel scarf collection doesn't sound so bad. {full outfit}

February 2014: I was pretty happy with the fact that I found a way to turn this warm weather striped dress into an outfit for cooler temps too. Stripes are all powerful! {full outfit}

July 2014: Definitely thought this was a style risk at the time, but I love how pairing a striped top with a striped skirt turned out. {full outfit}

April 2015: I still love this striped dress to this day, and the blue + cognac accessories is definitely something I'm going to have to repeat soon. {full outfit}

March 2016: Stripes are classics in my book, but they can be fun too! This swingy warm weather dress is a perfect example of stripes for fun! {full outfit}

April 2016: The slip dress is back! I'm betting this will be a big trend for this Summer too. Happy that I took a chance on this Old Navy dress that looked pretty blah on the hanger, but pretty bomb once on! {full outfit}

{Shop these exact pieces}

dress: J.Crew Factory striped cotton dress (also linking some sleeveless options below)
