Stripes make me happy. Color makes me happy. Combine these two elements and you've got one of my favorite "uniforms." Make it a dress and I'm in fashion heaven (example: this floor-skimming maxi dress, above). And to add a little something unexpected, I would pair this outfit with my beloved summer staple. How about you? Do you love stripes as much as me? Or are you more of a polka dot girl? Bold prints? Neutrals? Black?
