ADD: Old Navy Striped Tank Tops for $6

Almost Daily Deal: @OldNavy’s crazy holiday sales strike again - $6 knit tanks!

Old Navy is always excellent for sale shopping around this time of year. They really take the 4th of July idea and run with it, being that they’re such an All American Brand and everything. Whatever that means, I am super stoked to see things for $2 and $4! That’s my kind of celebration.

Almost Daily Deal: Old Navy Striped Tanks for $4

At first glance, I loved this tank because it reminded me of the old circus strongmen costumes. (I have a vin…

Leave it to me to make a status about how I don’t understand tucking shirts into leggings to have my friend Louise from Mayfair Calling show me what’s what by posting a photo of herself looking glorious with a chiffon shirt tucked into textured leggings. It just seems counterintuitive to me, but as you can see on my Facebook post, she instantly became my leggings-as-outerwear guru. I am humbled.

New DesigNation Collection: Kohl’s x Peter Som

Get an in-depth look at the new #DesigNation Collection at Kohl’s featuring… Peter Som!

First, it was the modular color play of Narciso Rodriguez, then Derek Lam’s modern palette of patterns took their turn, followed by Catherine Malandrino‘s understated Parisian simplicity. Now, the DesigNation at Kohl’s baton turns over to Peter Som, who seems to have blended the strong points of each of his predecessors into one collection of completely wearable, utterly affordable style.

Love the posters they used for the frame cluster! (& the striped rug.)

Shenanigans! #selfie #gpoy

This looks like the perfect spring-summer dress!

STRIPED CROSSOVER DRESS - ZARA, $59.90

I like themed sales. I also like stripes. And dots. It’s a really good day for me.

(via Candystore Collective - dots stripes sale - 40% off!)

I saw an editorial in some Big Magazine years and years ago… I remember it like it was yesterday! The girl was wearing a red, jersey, column skirt that hit her about 3 inches below the knees, and underneath, she wore opaque grey tights. Love at first sight, truly. In the years since, I’ve collected (& discarded) a lot of “almost" skirts, and a modicum of red and grey tights… I hunted for the perfect red skirt, or even the perfect grey skirt, for what seemed like forever. Then, as obsessions tend to do, my vision expanded to midi column skirts of any kind.

They’ll work with anything! I can so easily see it, and I so badly need one… two… six, whatever. Not only have they been in my dreams on and off for the last few weeks, but I’ve also been seeing them around more. Especially striped midi skirts, but mostly just midi skirts.

Pajama Clothing holds such a unique beauty. The length is super formal, but the stripes negate any kind of non-casual ideas about this skirt… No one will accuse you of being overdressed again! …or underdressed! What could be more perfect?

Spotted this dress at Shabby Apple the other day and had to bookmark it! I love simple designs, and that’s what Shabby Apple does best! Super basic, well-made, affordable dresses that will last years - I have two, myself!

I can’t help but connect these stripes to the beach, thanks to Sweeney Todd and the most adorable scene in the entire movie:

See? See?!  Striped clothes are a beach thing. Stripes are an everywhere everything stripes are the best. Period.

If there was a movie called The Rugby Skater and it had this dress on the movie poster, you would go see it, wouldn’t you? I think I would. Only for the dress, though, probably.

I’m definitely a fan of the “skater dress” shape. I’m a high-waisted chick, so anything that highlights (aka proves I have a) natural waist gets my vote of confidence. Besides, I’m addicted to stripes (we all know this), especially rugby stripes and this dress comes in two different, deliciously stripey versions. The cap sleeves on this dress are likely going to be what breaks me down and gets me to stuff my debit card into my CD slot just to prove my devotion to this wondrous, striped beast of bright orange and beige perfection.
