When I first laid eyes on this little stripped number, it was love at first sight.  Strips are hands down one of my favorite prints, and to put them on a tailored dress with pockets was genius!  When pairing accessories I knew I needed to keep it simple.  The first two things that came to mind were A) I could pair with orange and look like a jail bird or B) I could throw on a purple blazer and easily have been mistaken for Beetlejuice!  Needless to say I chose neither.  I figured I would play up my inner girly girl and pair the dress with bright pink patent sandals, which I had been eyeing for months.  Strips are a classic, and in my book they are also a neutral; you can pair strips with floral, bright colors, or sport them all on their own.  Regardless of how you choose to wear them, strips are chic nonetheless!
