The vertical stripe trend is all over the spring 2017 runways this year.  I decided to do two versatile looks here to wear now and wear later.

Layered with an oxford, it is perfect for work.  Once the sun comes out, dress it down with some granny mules (that’s what I call these 🙂 ) and a denim jacket – it’s perfect for drinks at the beach!  I actually ended up just strolling to Trader Joe’s after the shoot to grab some groceries for dinner wearing the last look.  So comfy!

Please excuse the Oompa Loompa face.  Warren warned me and I ignored.  Now I know not to use that foundation again – eek!!

What are your favorite trends for spring?

    I often wear horizontal stripes even though I’m told I should wear horizontal because of my lack of height. I am loving this dress, so I”m not sure why I never listened before now.

    Loving how you layered it with an oxford underneath! I mean – BOOM! Looks chic and classic and trendy! And you are OWNING it. Gorgeous.

    I love pieces that can be worn in many ways and that are cross seasonal. Great job styling this classic summer dress.
