What I Wore: Summer Stripes

We've still got a month of 90 degree days ahead, so I'm not yearning for any Fall Fashion yet.

I picked up this cute little sundress at my favorite thrift, Molly Mutt, for $4. What a good find: it's by Loft (similar), it's machine washable, and has a cool mix of stripes. It's too short for the office, but perfect for weekend brunch, shopping with my sister, or a walk on the boardwalk.

And pockets, hello! I added my thrifted key necklace (similar) and thrifted Steve Madden gladiator sandals (similar). I think gladiators are "out" now, but Not Trendy, Don't Care. Smiley

Have a sunny day, and stay fabulous,

  1. Great graphic lines, very elegant - gladiator sandals perfect complement, quite right, who cares if it's trendy or not!

  2. Very elegant! I am striped addicted, myself. :) And, what an awesome thrift shop find with the key pendant! Love thrifting, too! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  3. Personally, I have to be careful of stripes on the bottom half, but you wear those stripes well :-)

    Great dress - I bought this dress when it hit the stores and didn't read the washing instructions very well and it got really small after my wash. So bummed...this is such a cute dress. I love all the different directions of the stripes.


  5. Gorgeous in stripes, Patti! That dress was a bargain. Love your hair up like that.

    I'm also in the NT;DC camp! I love my gladiators and am not giving them up just yet. You look awesome, Patti! Love that key necklace.

  7. You look fab Patti, so chic - and I love your hair like that.

  8. I'm adding to the cacophony of voices...your hair looks great up! I love your key necklace. But if we used our normal keys somehow it wouldn't work!
    Stripes are very elegant and cooling somehow. I love the different directions.
