LOVE both of these blue-striped looks.
There's something sophisticated, yet casual, about the nautical look
in the summer months that I can totally dig.
And Lord knows I love me a maxi dress.
Too bad the stripes are going the wrong way, no?(No one wants to look like a fat blob, let alone when it's 100 degrees Fahrenheit.)
However, I'm thinking the fitted, tailored shapes of the above frocks
would ward off the extra poundage horizontal stripes usually bring.
I got my birthday card from Anthro in the mail,
so I guess there's only one way to find out for sure!
