Forever Stripes

Thank you to Zappos for kindly sponsoring this post.
All opinions are 100% honest & all items were hand-selected by me.

One of the many benefits that comes with getting older is becoming more sure of who you are.  When I hit my mid-thirties, I really started to feel comfortable in my own skin, more confident with my choices and ultimately content with the season of life that I'm in.  And, when it comes to my personal style, I feel like I'm finally hitting my stride of knowing what works for me & what I will feel my best in.  I still might take a risk here & there or try something slightly unexpected...but for the most part, I have a good grasp on what I love and I try to stick to that.

For as long as I can remember, I've gravitated towards stripes - whether it's a classic breton tee or a more modern interpretation, stripes are one pattern that always feel like "me".  If you were to comb through my closet, it's by far the most dominant print and, truly, nothing makes me happier.  Though it doesn't happen often, I love it when I can find a new take on stripes that is completely different from the pieces I already own.

I'm honored to be sharing with you today photos from a special partnership that I did with Zappos for a feature on their site called The Style Room.  They asked me to select items to create a head-to-toe summer look and let me tell you how hard it was to narrow down my favorites from their massive selection!  

You all know how much I've been loving red this season, so I was instantly drawn to this striped dress.  I love that it's made from a soft stretchy material (which makes it super comfortable), but the off-the-shoulder style & shaped sleeves give it a modern feel.  If we weren't camping right now, I would definitely wear this for 4th of July with some espadrille wedges or sneakers.

To give it a sophisticated touch, I added black accents with some fun tassel earrings & these suede sandals (that I've been wearing so much lately - see here & here).  This embellished straw bag is the perfect finishing touch (love that the strap is removable!), along with minimal gold jewelry & my favorite brand of sunglasses.  If I was dressing this up for date night, I'd swap out the flat sandals for these heels.
