Summertime Blue and White

There’s nothing revolutionary about blue and white stripes… it’s just a fact that there isn’t anything more classic! I own blue and white stripes in every clothing article and accessory from sweaters to dresses from pants to shorts and from purses to espadrilles. You name it, I own it. A summertime blue and white color palette is a super prominent aspect of my wardrobe and really defines my style. So, when I got a J.Crew gift card from one of my student’s family’s at the end of the school year, I immediately headed to J.Crew to pick up this blue and white maxi dress that I had been eyeing. J.Crew has almost sold out of it here but it is still very available at Nordstrom!

Allison is a lover of summertime blue and white everything too so she decided to pop into these photos with me. Her dress is from J.Crew three years ago but still a complete classic! In honor of our color crush, I decided to round up all my current favorite summertime blue and white dresses for you because summer will still be alive and well in Los Angeles through October.

We are both suckers for straw purses too! I’m so happy because I snagged my bag back in January but it was sold out almost all of spring. My straw bag is finally back in stock again! It fits so much so I can carry it with me for a full day out and about. Allison’s clutch is by one of my favorite designers, Mar Y Sol. It is available in tan, like Allison’s, and in navy. On a straw/basket bag sidenote, I get so many emails and Instagram messages about my Cult Gaia bag (as seen here) so I wanted to share that I have a size small and the purse is currently available (woohoo, it’s so often sold out!) here in small and large and here in mini, small, and large. Plus, this Cult Gaia purse is fabulous and I’m dying for it!

I’m wearing my favorite Castañer wedges (also love this color combo, last seen here, they stretch so size down) in blue. Allison is wearing a super adorable pair of Splendid espadrilles (also available here) in soft pink. I’ve borrowed hers before so I can vouch for how comfortable they are!

My nautical sailor knot necklace is such a fun piece for summer! I wore it a bunch on Nantucket and in Sag Harbor! KJP really has the classic nautical look down (I mean, how adorable is this sweater!?).
