A Must-Have: The Sailor Striped Dress

I am just back to the City of Lights from a long beach vacation in Normandy. It was much needed and I have appreciated every moment of it.

Now I am right up again, recharged and ready to face up new challenges!…When you plan holidays on the Normandy coast, you have got to be prepared for every kind of weather : sun, rain, clouds along with sudden drops of temperature and constant wind/breeze. Which is nice when it hits 33C, not so nice when it drops by 17C..The summer sailor striped dress in midweigh fabric, with ¾ sleeves fits the bill. Stripes and sailor stripes are so rad! And the summer sailor striped dress from American Vintage is a hit in my wardrobe. I got a lot of wear out of this number during my holidays. Mostly adopting a laid-back style to wear this cute piece: either throwing it on a bikini for a quick Lunch at the beach bar  or  sandals in the evening  and always a  tousled hairstyle!…I really kept it cool and simple as it shows on the photos!

I like the versatility of this summer sailor striped dress which will transition easily into fall. In the city, I will cinch  it with a tan  leather belt and wear sandals or high heeled lace-ups to glam up the outfit. Throw on a jacket to go in a meeting. Truly the sailor striped dress is another basic in our wardrobe. A sailor striped dress never goes out of style. You will find at the end of the post some of the dresses I like. How do you wear yours?


Me voilà de retour à la capitale après 3 semaines de mer et soleil en Normandie. Reposée et rechargée pour septembre et le reste de l’année. Des projets en cours…En faisant un premier retour sur ce que j’ai porté pendant les vacances, je me dis que la marinière sous toutes ses formes  ne m’a pas quittée: tee-shirt, débardeurs, manches courtes, longues….et la palme revient à cette robe marinière American Vintage! Je l’ai portée à toutes les sauces!! Ici présentée en mode décoiffée, décontractée en Normandie, pas la peine de s’exciter à être bien coiffée, le vent s’occupe de tout! et c’est ce que je j’aime en Normandie!!. Je vais maintenant la porter à Paris ceinturée, des talons et une veste cintrée . Une pièce incontournable  de notre garde-robe, simple et facile à vivre. “Effortlessly chic” comme on dit sur la planète mode. Et vous, comment portez-vous la petite robe marinière?.

  1. Wow that looks like a great destination, especially because of the weather circumstances! I would love a bit of rain, being a Dutch expat on an island. Great outfit, great photos and great blog. Keep up the good work!
