Growing up, I spent every single summer near Cape Cod with my parents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We dug for quahogs, scooted around on the boat, and played on the beach until the sun set or we were called in for dinner. As a result, I am obsessed with all things nautical. Shells, anchors, sand, waves and stripes all remind me of the sunshine days of my youth, spent nearly entirely in a swimsuit and smelling like salt and sand.
As summer approaches rapidly, I have nothing but Cape Cod on the brain. Thus, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite striped dress finds from around the web in hopes that I can help match you with your new favorite nautically-inspired outfit this season. If I had unlimited resources, I would own every single one of these…
