There's nothing I love more than a great striped dress. This one by Max Studio has recently become one of my favorites and I love the nautical-ness of it. Often times people stay away from horizontal stripes because they think it makes them appear larger than they are. That isn't always the case.  It is the case, however, that certain kinds of stripes can give off that illusion. The thicker the stripe, the larger you appear. The reason being that it separates your body into large chunks and can be very unflattering.

 One of the reasons I love this dress is because of how the stripes are layered. It's extremely flattering and actually makes you appear thinner and defines your waist! 

I paired it with red jewelry and white sandals for a beachy feel. For a more formal look I would have worn black heels and a white (or black)  leather jacket and my usual array of gold rings. 

In other news, I've been growing out my bangs! I was time for a change and it felt kind of strange, but I'm really happy with how they're coming along. 

Happy Monday!
