Black + White Stripe... With a Side of Floral

BB Dakota Black and White Striped Dress, Sage+Sparkle Happy Monday... is there really such a thing?  Today, I would have to say yes! While I'm beyond exhausted, in a matter of hours I will be getting ready to attending Le Dîner en Blanc, and while said event was the cause of a bucket boat load of stress yesterday, while we drove all over Long Island looking for our supplies, (thank God we have a car and can drive out to LI for these types of excursions... I don't think I could have handled trying to find everything in the city and thank God for a wonderful calm boyfriend), we found a table at 9pm, and the crisis was averted.  More details on this magically event later this week, but in the meantime, check out this video from last year and be sure to follow my Instagram for a sneak peek into this years festivities.

I got this dress at the beginning of the summer and have worn it countless times since – it's just so easy ! We all know you can't go wrong with b+w stripes, but you especially can't go wrong when done in a loose fitting silk sleeveless shirt style, creating the perfect easy breezy feel for hot summer nights.  What I love about this dress is it's versatility – you can throw this dress on over a bathing suit with a pair of sandals, or you can add a pair of suede cut out heels with a sequins faux leather bomber jacket, as I did here, and you're ready to transition this baby right in to fall.
