Stitch Fix Horiz

It is no secret that I have a weakness for black and white striped clothing. I can't help myself!

And then somehow once I tried it...

This spring nautical look was a fun way to channel the season to come while still not freezing my pants off! The navy and white white striped sweater was...

Black and White Stripes

Black and White Striped Look

As you might know, black and white stripes are a frequent look for both Kristin and I and this dress is no exception. We are traveling together right now in Arizona for a conference and I needed a fun dress for dinner out. I immediately fell in love with this black and white striped fit and flare dress. It's by Eliza J from Lord and Taylor, one of my favorite department stores for quick dress shopping.  I've found that this length with sleeves is a great way to easily transition from a day to evening...
