STRIPES & SUMMER
Stripes for summer, stripes for winter, stripes for all seasons. All hail stripes! It is one of those quintessential patterns that every woman's wardrobe has, right? But we cannot deny that we favor this pattern just a wee bit more in summer. Now we've all heard the thumb-rules that apply when wearing stripes, that of horizontal stripes making you look wider and vertical stripes making you look taller. While the theory might hold true, it's always more fun to not play by the rules and wear what you love. Who the heck cares if a certain pattern makes you look wider and why do we think that being wide is something bad?! The only rule that should apply to looking good is feeling good. Yes that's right, you look good when you feel happy and confident.
When I saw this striped beauty at Nordstrom, I said to myself, 'Holy shit, I've got to have this one because it's got all my favorites in one - the stripes, the rib-knit, the pop of colors against the white'. It was like I found my go-to dress, one that I could wear anytime and every time. And yeah, I didn't give two shits about looking wider or fatter because I know I will look my best if I am happy and the dress sure makes me feel happy & colorful. And this is what I urge all you ladies out there to adapt too in the way you think about clothes or fashion, they are not meant to make you look good, they are meant to make you feel good and that is all that matters!
