I spotted this little stripe number when I was pulling looks for a photo shoot a few weeks ago and grabbed it for myself when I took everything back from the shoot. I just couldn't stop thinking about it, I just had to have it. I love the bell shape it has and how soft the cotton fabric is. And of course the black and white stripe (always and forever my favorite). This piece is already a huge staple in my closet and plan on it being one I wear all summer long. Just call Tulip on the Country Club Plaza to order it over the phone. Their number is (816) 756-5404.

STYLING TIP: When wearing horizontal stripes or any stripes for that matter, just make sure the garment is a good fit. You don't want it too fitted or it the garment will definitely make you look bigger than you are. This goes for any pattern really. As long as it fits you are good to go!

What is your favorite staple piece for summer?
