Summer and stripes go hand in hand!!! I have a closet full of striped dresses and an entire drawer dedicated to my striped shirts. When it comes to a normal amount striped items the limit does not exist.
I have been eyeing this striped clutch for ages and finally went for it. While I think I’ll wear it with a striped shirt or dress at some point this summer, it’s also great for adding a little pop to a simple dress as I’ve done here.
After a day in the city, Garrett and I had an al fresco date night. He works so much on the weekends that we have to make weeknights date nights. (Kind of the best way to break up the week though!) I was soooo happy that it was nice enough to dine outside– the first of the year!
I switched into this comfortable dress (under $70!), swapped out flats for wedges, and grabbed the clutch for some color.
Clutches are my favorite during the summer. I often throw them into a larger tote for extra organization or carry it in lieu of a handbag. I used to think it would be too cumbersome to carry one– no handles!– but I actually find it quite nice.
The leather on this clutch is buttery and luxurious. The best perk though is that it’s really roomy so you can carry more than the essentials with you.
