I'd Rather Be Sailing

Dress:  Ralph Lauren: Shoes: Seychelles via Habitat Shoe Boutique;
Chain Link Bracelet: Ralph Lauren; Coin Bracelet: My Mom's;
Shades: Prada

This dress is so nautical with its boat neck, rope belt and blue/white stripes. But, I like that the "sea" inspired dress wasn't styled that way. I kept the accessories very neutral and stayed away from making it a themed look. There are tiny buttons on the neck in a bronze and the belt buckle is the same shade. Because of that, I went with metallic sandals and brushed gold jewelry.

If you are going to wear horizontal stripes, these are the ones to wear. Try to keep your white stripe small because it can make you look wider than you are! The low slung belt draws your eye down which happens to make my waist appear smaller. You skim over my waist without focusing on it. And I just love the crispness of this dress. It may be cotton but it feels dressier than that. You could definitely dress it down with Gladiators (seen here). Yet another summer look to put to rest.
