Warm summer evenings are perfect for tiki torches, twinkling lights, bbq’s and garden parties! As the sun sets, the lights turn on and as we garden and bbq can’t help but make the night more magical with a pretty cabana striped dress! I may not be lounging in the cabana so I might as well bring the cabana to my lounging!
The dress is from Loft Outlet, a major score with the holiday sales this week/weekend! The fit is full and the material a nice thick linen (and lined!) so I needed to tie it all together with a wide belt. The mark. The White Approach belt ($18) was the perfect way to tie in my nautical influence as well as tie my look together!
Why stop the stripes at just the dress!?! Print matching the cabana stripes with the black and white stripes from my mark. Handle With Flair Handbag ($36). Which also perfectly match my cobalt faux suede peep toe pumps from Shoedazzle!
To complete the look I just added some sparkly jewelry and eye look with my mark. Island Beauty Face Pallet (see review here) and What A Line Felt Tip Eyeliner in Twilight. You can shop the beauty products used, Handle With Flair handbag and The White Approach Belt at my eBoutique: http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger
Stripes on stripes actually work really well together! Try it for yourself by mixing different sized stripes in your outfit and in an accessory. Personally I’m loving how my nautically influenced cabana stripes pair with the mark. Handle With Flair handbag. I’d recommend it as your striped accessory. It has exterior pockets as well as interior and the silky fabric is anchored with with cobalt trim. I’m thinking this bag will look equally as chic paired with black and white stripes for some stripe on stripe matching!

Hi there. I love love this dress. It would be perfect for a wedding that I’m going to. I looked on line but didn’t see it. Did you buy it at a loft outlet near you or online? Thank you for sharing your photos. You look fabulous in this dress.
Thanks Chrystin! I got it at the Loft Outlet (Folsom Premium Outlets), give them a call and ask for Kristina. She can probably do a phone order or at least get you the style number and the closest one to you.
Also, this dress is very similar online: http://www.loft.com/paintbrush-stripe-pleated-dress/330622?colorExplode=true&skuId=16411715&catid=cat1100006&productPageType=saleProducts&defaultColor=5279
Yes it so is. I have a big butt. Do u think this one flares enough so its not tight. Its so hard to tell. Is the one you have true to size? I wear a 10 bottom but a small top. So would I get a 10?
The one I’m wearing runs a little large I def could of gone down a size if it was available so I wouldn’t think you need to order up. Especially with a full skirt, plus they do misses sizing (compared to juniors) so I think you’ll be ok sticking with your normal size. I think the one on Loft (online) is cut extremely similar to the one I have, fabric may be different but you can call up Loft Customer Service and they should be able to relay what kind of fabric it is.
