Sometimes an all striped dress can be a bit overwhelming. I used to hate horizontal stripes as it does the one thing we all never want, make us look wider. But I have recently come around to them a bit more in the past year or so. Naturally with this loose fitting T-shirt striped dress, I did not want the stripes to over power my look. By adding solid pieces, it helped tone down the bold pattern while still giving the stripe pattern center stage. Anyone else like to wear a sporty look to run errands on beautiful days? I know what your are thinking, your yoga pants do just fine for a sporty look. Okay, maybe you can give your yoga pants a break and still be comfortable and sporty with a simple Tshirt dress, low sneaker and fun accessories. Try it out! Maybe you will go back to the days of Sporty Spice. Anyone else a Spice Girl fan in the 90’s? I sure was! Spice up yo life!
And who doesn’t love a nice jumping picture? Truth is I was overjoyed at the beautiful weather we have had this past week I was celebrating. Okay and maybe jumping for joy that we leave on vacation in less than two weeks! Score! Those poor pale legs of mine need some time in the sun. Oh, pardon my pedometer, I have been wearing it to track my daily steps and it slipped its way into this photo shoot. 🙂

You look darling! I love this causal laid back look. I want a stripe dress too. I’ve been on the search for the perfect one.
Lol about the pedometer. Don’t even worry about it. I wear my Fitbit in all my photos.
