Casual OOTD - Striped Shirt Dress and Sandals

Casual OOTD - Striped Shirt Dress and Sandals

Here's a simple variation of an outfit that I've worn many times. (The Proenza Schouler bag and the Nikon DF camera are two wishlist items I would love to add to my real life collection but for now they will live on in my mind and on the blogosphere.) 

A staple item in my closet, the black and white striped cotton t-shirt dress. I like to accessorize it with gold earrings and a gold collar necklace. Brown strapped sandals are super easy to wear. If it gets chilly, throw on a light wash denim jacket to complete the look. Perfect for a casual summer day :] 

What item is your summer staple?

Items mentioned: Hope black stripe dress / H&M sandals, $51 / Proenza Schouler leather purse, $2,330

Wishlist: Bag Envy

As the summer solstice has officially commenced, it's time to pull out your summer wardrobe. School's out so I've retired my big tote for the semester in favor of a small brown cross body bag.

The texture is faux-leather and super relaxed and slouchy - perfect for running around town on easy errands. But for summer parties and events I'd like something a bit more sophisticated. Specifically, something black, sleek and with a hint of gold. Here are some of the bags on my wishlist! Which one is your favorite?
