Sequins and Sea Breezes: Striped Swing

Striped Swing

5/14/2015

Happy Thursday loves! Thanks for being patient with my while I took a much needed day off yesterday. As much as I love interacting and living in my blogging world sometimes the real world needs more focus. Speaking of focus... how trippy does the print on this dress look in pictures?! I don't know if that means I need a better camera lens or if the stripes just photograph crazy because they're so close together. Either way, I'm completely obsessed with this dress so don't be surprised if you see it again or in other colors soon!
 
 
This is the best spring/summer and maybe even fall dress paired with the right accessories! I could totally see this dress paired with a leather or denim jacket and booties in the fall! For this look I kept it casual and threw on my favorite two-tone wedges and my favorite hat. I threw on this gorgeous layered House of Harlow necklace that I received in my Rocksbox this month which I think contrasts well with the stripes on the dress as well as my Gorjana cuff. Speaking of Rocksbox... if you haven't signed up already and want to give it a try use code sequinsandseabreezesxoxo at checkout to get your first month free! I just sent back my first box so I'm excited to see what my second has in store for me.

  20. Hi sweetie, I tried to find your email b/c I want to ask you about sizing in this adorable dress. I am usually a 4. I tried this on at AE last Friday and the xs still seemed big but ok with a jacket. Should I try the xxs? Your thoughts? And welcome back beautiful!! Hope all is well :-) Hugs

  23. Okay yes, I love this dress for sure. It's hard to tell in the first pic that it's stripes, but the second one for sure brings it out. The real world does need our attention sometimes so don't ever feel bad for taking a day off my dear. :)
