Stripes and Summer go together like peas and carrots, am I right? I love basically any clothing item made in a stripe fabric and I couldn’t be more thrilled than to add this linen striped dress to my summer wardrobe rotation this year.
Growing up in a family of giants, seriously I’m the shortest person in my entire family, I’ve come to appreciate how much vertical stripes can elongated my figure making me at least appear like I’m almost at the 6ft mark. (honestly, not really but I can pretend…..)
A few weekends ago, when it actually felt like summer outside, I attended brunch with a few fellow bloggers at The Ashburn located at the Loews Hotel in Rosemont. Brunch was absolutely delicious and an excellent way to fuel up before you hit The Fashion Outlets which are conveniently located next door. It was a beautiful way to spend a Sunday with friends eating and shopping. If you’re looking for a way to spend the day with your girlfriends, I highly recommend a day to check out The Fashion Outlets.
Now Chicago, if you could only bring back the temperatures from that weekend, I’d be one happy camper!
