You know I believe that stripes are such a classic and easy to wear pattern. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’ve got yet another piece for my wardrobe. However, who can blame me? A classic blue and white striped dress is always a good investment. It doesn’t matter how old you are, where you live, what you do for a living, what year it is. You can always wear it and it gives you so many options of how to style it. Although it is a versatile piece, I wasn’t actively looking for one. But it found its way to me.
Katie and May is a small boutique, close to where my sister lives and I’ve been eyeing it since I moved here. I had seen many cute things on their window displays so I did what almost anyone around my age would do. I started following them on Facebook and Instagram. I’ve been looking for a nice, affordable watch for the last couple of months and I saw that they had something I liked. When I saw that they were having a sale, I decided it was time to finally pay it a visit.
I wasn’t sure I would find anything on my size so my main goal was to see the watch and decide if I was buying it or not. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see that there were a few choices available for me. I grabbed the things I liked and the striped dress was among them. I tried it on and I knew I should take it. The fabric is very nice, the length is just what I like and I loved the subtle ruffles on the sleeves. Plus, it has pockets! So I left the store with a brand new dress, a new watch and happy to have supported a small business 🙂
