Oh, how I love summer! No matter how chic fall fashions are, the idea of being able to throw on a great dress and some sandals has its advantages. Earlier this week I was invited to a lovely dinner cruise by IHG Rewards, the loyalty program of Intercontinental Hotels. This cute and colorful striped dress seemed like the perfect outfit for sailing the Hudson. If you are looking for a fun way to mix up your stripe game, find a print with a multi-directional pattern for a flattering look. I got this dress in a last minute deal from Last Call Neiman Marcus (similar styles below). Since it's so striking, a neutral shoe and bag is necessary to keep the outfit from looking too busy. Check out my upcoming post to see how we enjoyed our evening with IHG Rewards and the Share Forever promotion.
