Striped Maxi

I tried to get several outfits photographed last week while we were on vacation and I had my choice of "photographers"! My sister-in-law (who is actually one of the people who encouraged me to start this blog) snapped these pics for me on one of the first nights at the beach. One of my favorite things to wear in the summer is a maxi dress. It's effortless and put together at the same time. When I bought this particular dress I loved the colors and shape but was concerned about the horizontal stripes. We've all heard for years that horizontal stripes are a fashion no-no but they seem to be everywhere this season and I think if they are done right, if the width of the stripes and the shape of the garment is spot on, then the stripes work!

I found these shoes on one of my pre-vacation TJMaxx trips and knew I "needed" them. They were too much fun to pass up and the $19.99 price made them a deal! I have to keep them away from my dog though. When I wear them he thinks a small animal is attacking my feet and he barks at them until I put them up in the closet. I have a feeling if I left them out on accident they would get eaten for sure!

One of the things I enjoy most about vacation is having time to just sit and read (and read, and read)! In years past I would bring a bag full of books but now that I have my Nook and iPad I just download the books I want to read and if I get thru them all before vacation week is over I can simply download more! One of the books I read this vacation was "The Vow". Great book and completely different than the movie. It was a really quick, read-in-a-day kind of book.

Have a savvy and stylish start to your week!
