Stripes & Dots | With or Without You

Summer dress over a t-shirt with boots

What I’m Wearing…

* Orange polka dotted and striped dress from Asos {on sale for $32} drop-waist and oversized, with really gaping arm holes. Size down if you want it fitted more. I’m wearing a US6
* DIY crop top worn under… all kindsa 90′s style
* Big silver hammered heart earrings I found at the farmer’s market in Century City so many years ago
* Whitewashed booties in navy {though they look gray} by Sam Edelman {and now on sale & in 2 other colors}
* Chloe Belladone gray sunglasses
* White leather Rockie duffel bag by Alexander Wang

* Title: partial | lyrics from u2 “With or Without You”

I’m having so much fun getting dressed these days. I think it’s a combination of the gorgeous weather, obviously, and finding inspiration in new things. I dunno. Who knows. Who cares. I would have normally worn this with my white or gray Supergas but for some reason I was just feeling the boots, which are wildly comfy with a little heel. Because why not boots for Summer? {crazy photo overload today… mostly because of my hair}

I wore this outfit out last week when we stopped at Wake and Wheel to buy some paddle boards. We had been in a few days earlier but he was fresh out of stock. Luckily when we arrived the second time, a used Roxy board had just come in and since it matched my dress so perfectly, I thought it was a sign that it was supposed to be mine. The husband purchased a larger, floatier board in white. We picked out a few paddles and were so excited to get out on the water and try them out. I have a post coming soon documenting it, of course ;)

    Don’t take this the wrong way but I think you are way too sexy for that dress. You are gorgeous but that dress has no shape! Anyway, I love your accessories and hair.

    I really love all of these pictures. At first I was not a huge fan of the dress but as more time worn on and seeing it in other pictures it become adorable. I think that you make this dress and your personality shines.
