Brunch by the Water Dress

If you've been following me for a while, you already know how much I love my nautical looks.  Because of this affinity for all things nautical, I was over the moon when Conversation Pieces Boutique sent me this "Brunch by the Water" dress!  The navy and white stripes, thick but stretchy jersey fabric, and little pockets (dresses with pockets are a weakness of mine) all make this the perfect dress for the office, a dinner date, and more.  To create today's look, I paired this "Brunch by the Water" dress with my favorite navy blazer, red suede bow pumps, a red satchel, and gold jewelry.  I wore this outfit yesterday to church and brunch with my family, and then later on in the day wore it out to a double dinner date with very dear friends.  I'd like to think this outfit is something that Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge would wear--it is polished and ladylike, with quality pieces that I can wear over and over again.
