Happy Monday everyone! I can never say no to a striped dress and this one is no exception! Earlier this week, I popped into J.Crew to take a look at their new arrivals for June and my eyes were immediately drawn to this dress. I love the classic, tailored and feminine feel to it but it was the stripes that totally sold me. A few weeks ago, I was unpacking my closet as we were moving into our new home and I couldn’t help but notice how many striped pieces that were in my wardrobe. I told myself I wasn’t going to buy anymore stripes but that didn’t last long because the very next week I ended up with this dress. I guess I can’t help it, I’m a stripes girl! Are there any prints in your closet that pop up a little too frequently but you just can’t get enough of?

xo, Rach

  2. I’m totally with you, Rach! I noticed that I’m on a stripes hunt lately too! I just bought a striped top last week and have been wearing it nonstop. Should we start a stripes Anonymous meeting? :P

  3. Rach I just spent 2 solid hours on your site on Saturday and was so impressed with how much your site has changed or evolved in such a short time. You have gone from personal pictures documenting your life, flip flops and bikinis on Lake Powell, by the way you look so cute in your bikinis, definitely the right shape for them too. And now you are sporting the most expensive and sophisticated of outfits, shoes, purses, and a brand new home!!! You truly are amazing, it was like watching you grow up and transform into this beautiful butterfly that you are now! Congrats and keep improving. As much as I would still like to see your family featured I realize your blog is now more professional than personal but still rocks!

  4. Hi Rachel. I was wondering if you could give me some insight into how you got started doing this. You have my dream job and I’d love to be able to share my passion with others as you do. Any help or mentorship you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again

  5. I tend to be drawn to florals, from the tiniest ditsy prints to the largest blooms on cardis & jackets. But this dress could be a game changer! Love the total look of this for non stop class!

  6. I am so in love with this outfit! I’m addicted to stripes too! My husband says all my clothes look alike, but I can see the difference in the stripes, and that’s all that matters! LOL! And that clutch, need it! Love that pink

  7. No matter if some one searches for his required thing, thus he/she desires to be
    available that in detail, thus that thing is maintained over here.
