It’s All About The Stripes!

Have you noticed all the stripes! I’m wanting to add them to my spring and summer wardrobe.

This dress is from Downeast and it came in my Stitch Fix box and I decided to keep it. I think I’ll wear it a lot this spring and summer. When the weather warms up I can take the denim jacket off and add sandals.

I decided to go outside and take my pictures since it was cloudy but it was still chilly and as you can see my trees look yucky. Those will be green soon, I promise!

It's All About the Stripes
It’s cloudy but I’m still squinting! And I’m having some serious “big hair” today. :-) Here’s where I purchased each item.

It's All About The Stripes

You can purchase this dress online at Downeast. The dress is the stylist pick and is only $30.

My necklace is from Groopdealz, I shared about Groopdealz here and of course a denim jacket is a great piece to add to your basic wardrobe.

Do you love stripes? Have you added any to your spring and summer wardrobe?

  1. I am! I’ll be at Influence again and FINALLY going to Allume this year. How about you? Hope to see you at one. Oh, and I think we have a mutual friend. Do you know Maribeth and Jeremy Johnson? I thought I saw you comment on Facebook when they were going through their horrible trial. They are precious friends. So amazing in their faith during this season!

    Thanks for this Beauty for your heart quote! My husband and I were just discussing this topic…it can sometimes be a struggle for some of us to be attentive and live in a way where our day to day actions bring us closer to God. Especially when we’ve (me) just recently found Him.

  3. Thank you Julianne. She was a very special Aunt and will be missed greatly.

  4. You always look beautiful and I love your hair!

    So sorry about your loss, Cyndi…My thoughts & prayers are with you! Xo

  10. Sorry, I meant to continue and say at this time, I do not wear vertical or horizontal stripes.

  11. You are looking very chic in your striped dress…and it will look even more fantastic without the jacket and boots for the summer! I on the other hand, do not wear vertical stripes at this time. I am just not a big fan of any stripes whether in style or not.LOL But you rock them stripes, girl LOL another thumbs up on this outfit!

  12. I just read over on Traci’s blog about your Auntie…. hugs, Cyndi! Thinking of u all and praying for u’s!

  13. oh please address this question. I fear I wold look like I am wearing someone’s awnings.

  14. I actually bought a striped shirt about a month ago and now I feel super special because I am on time for a trend for once, ha! BTW, I wish I could have big hair!

  15. Cyndi, LOVE this! Super cute! What is your thought on stripes for us, um, not so small gals? I am always afraid stripes make me look even wider. ;)

  16. hi again! & I JUST figured out I’v read your sister’s blog for yrs!! LOVE her too!!


  17. Hi Cyndi,
    I found you though WWW & bookmarked you & check your blog each day!
    I too am a 40 (something) yr old mom & I love all your tips on makeup & clothes, and I love your added scripture or thought of the day! thank you!!
    I just started following you on instagram today! I love all your pictures! I too have one grandson that I don’t get to see often enough, but love all the same!

    I LOVE stripes, I’m a nautical girl! I always enjoy your outfit pics!! You’re a very classy woman! :-)

  19. Hi Cyndi.

    You look fab as always! I looked at the site to check on the dress, but no more navy. They do have a coral version, but coral is a little too warm-toned for me. You would look great in the coral too. :)

    Have a great weekend.

  20. Very cute as usual. You look nice in contrasting colours and I like the colour of the necklace with the dress. I think earrings and no necklace would look good, as well.
    I too, love stripes. I always have. I think certain patterns suit certain people and that’s apparently my pattern. CTD

  21. Love the dress…. I might have to get it! Just got a striped black and off white skirt at Old Navy for $15! Love it …. our trees are starting to bud like crazy… :) We’ve had some nice warm weather lately so spring is def. on the way. Have an awesome weeekend Cyndi!

  22. I purchased a navy & white striped dress on my Cayman vacation and can’t wait to wear it again! This dress is a great one and good price!

  23. I am addicted to stripes and you are SO cute. That is all.
