I’m pretty much the queen of navy and white stripes. Striped dresses, sweaters, t-shirts – you name it, I’ve got it in triplicate. So, imagine my excitement when I heard about the new holiday that J. Crew just invented. National Stripes Day. Today is the first annual celebration, and let me tell you, I’m all about it. I’m traveling for work today, so I can’t go to a J. Crew store to celebrate in person, although that’s probably just as well. I’m trying really hard to slow it down with my shopping since I recently binged on casual spring dresses. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t join in the fun from afar! While I don’t mean to be an enabler and suck you into my addiction, you’ve got to check out all these adorable striped pieces.
Here in DC, the seasons are changing. All I want to do is put away my sweaters and boots and switch to spring attire. I have a lot of travel coming up in the next couple of weeks (a trip to Georgia next weekend, then Japan!), and my preferred travel attire is casual dresses. It’s so easy to just pack a suitcase full of dresses, and pull out a different one every day. I love not having to worry about creating an ‘outfit’ the way you do with tops and pants and skirts. So yeah, all this to say, I’m spending every free waking moment right now filling my online shopping carts with casual spring dresses.
