black and white all over

by haley sherif

After a relaxing and fun weekend, like this past weekend, it’s almost impossible to get prepared for the weekend without a case of the Monday blues. All I wanted to do was keep the comfortable casual weekend look on and not have to think about the week’s look, that is until I pulled out a dress I purchased about a month ago at a boutique on the Shore called KnitWit.

I’ve been shopping their during the summers since I was a girl and I tend to pick out a great selection of summer dresses. I hadn’t worn the ALC black and white striped maxi dress that I bought at KnitWit at all in New York and yesterday felt like the perfect day to do so. I love a comfortable and chic dress, to me it’s the best of both worlds. What makes this ALC number a winner is that it requires no added accessories and a plain pair of Tkees is the ideal shoe as to not distract from the pattern.

It’s a no fuss dress that can be worn dressed down for a casual dinner, but is work appropriate with a cute denim jacket. I always keep Kelly Bensimon’s advice in mind, paired with beachy waves and some mascara, I am obsessed with Laura Mercier’s, a simple dress is a girl’s best kept secret, it’s the easiest way to look the part without all the added fuss. I can’t wait to wear the dress again soon, xo.
