Like striped tops, having a striped dress or two in your wardrobe for the spring and summer seasons is always a good idea. After having to part with two of the most loved striped dresses that I’ve worn on constant rotation both into the office, for errands on the weekend, and during many trips to the Lowcountry, it was finally time to replace them. This short-sleeved striped tee dress from the LOFT Beach collection couldn’t have worked out better for our recent trip to Hilton Head Island. It’s comfortable for travel, walks to explore the island (and do a bit of light shopping), and can also double as a coverup if you’re headed to the pool or the beach.
I paired it with one of my most loved fedoras. I’ve linked a similar option from one of my favorite hat brands, San Diego Hat Company. I opted for the longest necklace from the Coin Necklace set from Madewell that is a purchase I’d recommend to anyone who loves to layer their necklaces. My earrings were an on the spot purchase from Spartina 499 since I’d completely forgotten to wear earrings and didn’t want to have to run back to the VRBO.
Instead of layering my necklace, I opted to layer my bracelets instead with another Spartina 449 purchase (the pearl bracelet is only available in-store at the moment, but I’d keep an eye out online) and my favorite Gorjana taner bar bracelet that is perfect for everyday wear.

For my shoes, I pulled out my favorite sandals from lace-up sandals from Sarah Flint. They were a constant go-to throughout the spring and summer seasons (and can even be worn to work if you have a more casual dress code) and you never have to worry about your laces slipping down no matter how much walking you do during your day. Also, I have on good authority that there is a new color option in The Grear coming soon that you are definitely going to want to add to your collection.
