Sundays, Lattes and Nautical Stripes – RW&Co.

Sundays, Lattes and Nautical Stripes - RW&Co. | Style Domination by Dominique Baker

I love myself a Sunday with no obligations. Seriously…is there anything better than waking up after a good sleep with a whole day to yourself? No chores, no running around, just non-stop relaxation.

This was one of those Sundays. It was sunny, warm and the perfect day to grab Alyssa and go for a good London Fog latte at a favourite café. I didn’t want to schlep around in sweats either or wear my usual Dom uniform consisting of a black top and jeans. Nope – I was reaching for a summer staple – nautical stripes and my slightly obnoxious captain hat. Seize the day, right?

This little dress from RW & Co. fit the bill nicely. I love the look of a shirtdress cinched at the waist. It’s effortless and the navy and white stripes are about as classic as you can get. Years ago, I saw a similar design by a high-end designer that was completely out of my budget. Just like this dress, it fit perfectly and looked amazing as both a dress or worn as a shirt over jeans. I’d think about that dress each and every spring, kicking myself for not taking the plunge and buying it.

I guess thinking about it for that long was akin to “putting it out in the Universe” – willing it into my hot little hands. That was the exact thought that ran through my head when RW&Co. gifted me with this dress along with few more adorable dresses for spring. Maybe watching The Secret was worth it. Maybe if  I wish hard enough, a red Porsche 911 will magically appear in my driveway….

Since I can be a little extra, I decided to wear my beloved Stetson captain hat with my little striped dress and my favourite suede espadrilles from L’Intervalle. Spring was in full force and I was taking advantage! All I needed was a sailboat…and a crew of course to sail me around.

*A big thank you to RW&Co. for this little nautical number in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I’m excited to see that Nautical strips and shirt dresses are back in style. Both are just fun staples to have in your closet for summer and even into early fall.
