SUMMER STRIPES






Hi, friends. Thanks for stopping by!
The first day of summer has officially come and gone — can you believe it?
It's been hotter than you-know-what the last few weeks in D.C. and it's kind of the worst.
I'm talking full on #swampcity. And it's only mid-June. Ugh. I really shouldn't complain, 
I would've traded all of winter for one day of this weather in January. 
Funny how that works, right?




How adorable is this tie-front dress? I picked it up a few months back from Shopbop 
and have been anxiously awaiting the warm weather to wear it. At first, I hesitated to pull the trigger on this purchase and was devastated when it sold out after a few days. (I'm pretty sure this is what they mean by buyers remorse.) After a few weeks of incessantly stalking the website, I finally snatched it up during a long-awaited restock. Unfortunately, it appears to be sold out again, but keep an eye out — I anticipate another restock!

Even though this tie-front dress is temporarily out of stock, I've linked my favorite striped J.O.A. pieces in the widget below. Scroll through to shop!

  3. That dress is adorable! I totally feel you on the hot weather, I'm out here in California though. Good luck surviving the heat! In the meantime I think I'm going to pick up those sandals!

  6. I love this dress! I've definitely been eyeing stripes this summer. I can't believe how hot the weather already is. It makes me cringe that it's just going to continue to get worse. I guess that just means more time in the water!

  12. I love navy and white stripes; so perfect for summer – and any occasion, actually! I've been looking to add more navy striped pieces to my wardrobe; just the other day we took our boat out on the river with some friends, and literally everyone but me showed up wearing navy and white stripes, lol! Apparently I didn't get the memo, so I need to catch up with the cool kids real quick. ;)
