Stripes are a Hoot!

You can never have too many stripes! For this reason, I didn't hesitate to add another striped dress to my collection! There are a few things I love about this belted striped dress from SheIn, namely, the fit and cute tie waist but the best part is that it has pockets! I don't know why pockets are such an asset when it comes to skirts and dresses but I am always thrilled about them! To be honest, I never really use them but I guess it's just nice to know that they are there! So, I guess, I will add to my previous statement and say that you can never have too many stripes or pockets! The other great thing about this dress is that it's under $20 and you can save 15% off this dress and your entire purchase with SheIn by using code Q3KATIEGIRL.

Another thing that I can't get enough of are colorful murals and walls! I found this one at the beginning of summer on Oh Joy's Instagram feed and did a little homework to find its location. It's actually the store front of a former Owl drug store that is now hipster bookstore in a newly gentrified area of Los Angeles. Unfortunately for me, the panels that feature these delightfully colorful owls and cacti are rolled up during the hours the store is open. I was unaware of this on my first visit to the location and therefore I made a point to get to the store an hour before its opening on my next visit! I know that I've teased this before but I'm thinking of doing a Los Angeles mural guide and posting it on my blog in the future! I know other wall guides exist but mine would also include helpful hints about visiting these walls based on my experiences, in the hope that people don't make the same mistakes I did! So, maybe by the end of the summer, I can make this a reality!

  2. I COULDN'T EVEN TELL YOU HOW MANY STRIPED DRESSES I OWN, ESPECIALLY BLACK+WHITE ONES AND YET WANT THIS ONE FROM SHEIN. Love all your accessories too, especially the earrings and sandals, both are so much fun! Looking forward to seeing all the murals of LA, Katie. =)
