LWD Overload.

sea cotton eyelet dress 2

I can be a little boring when it comes to my shopping choices. I say this a lot, but it’s very true. (A little inside joke for you… I told all my girlfriends that my new blog name was going to be “A Little Bit Boring” when I rebranded to The Stripe.) But yeah, I’m boring when I shop… especially when it comes to those tried & true classic pieces. I live in my Burberry trench coat so much that the cost per wear is practically in the pennies range at this point. And last year I bought this SEA dress… but this Spring I went for this one. I mean, really? How many little white dresses does one need? They don’t look that different online but in person they’re actually quite different… and I love the oversized eyelet on this one. But suffice to say, I’ve got a bad LWD problem.

To keep things feeling fresh and interesting I love adding in a fun pattern scarf (Virginia Johnson is a new fave) or a bold necklace/bright clutch. Rule to live by: as you add interesting pops of color here and there, no one will ever know how boring you actually are.

People call me a cat lady but I’m a dog lady too. Really, an animal lady. I just love all of the animals. This dog basically laid down on me and I almost died of happiness. He was such a sweetie!

And these Samantha Wills earrings are much cooler than they look in this photo. So chic + effortless… I love the thread-through look.

    I’m boring too! I always end up with classic basics, which I don’t see as a bad thing at all. It means I wear most of the things I buy over and over again.

    In saying that though, I’m trying to force myself to buy more standout pieces.

    You can NEVER have enough LWD. And that outfit is far from boring! Bring on summer, bring on the LWD (and cute pups).

    I love this look, especially with the printed scarf. One day I’ll be able to afford a Burberry trench. And if you’re calling your sense of style boring, then I want to be boring too!

    Love how beautiful and feminine a little white dress can look and it´s absolutely perfect for the season. Haven´t seen it paired with a trench before but it looks amazing and basically allows you to break it out sooner. The detailing on the hem is gorgeous 🙂
