Last week, I spent a few days strolling the streets of Amsterdam with my mom—and when we weren’t museum-hopping or enjoying glasses of wine alfresco, we were, of course, shopping. Like many countries on the other side of the Atlantic, Amsterdam boasts a brick-and-mortar Petit Bateau store (there’s tragically only one in the US, and it’s all the way out in Beverly Hills!), purveyor of the absolute best Euro-cool striped shirts on the planet. And when I spotted a fit-and-flare dress covered with those same signature stripes in the shop window, I knew I had to have it.
Well, guess what—you needn’t book a trip to Europe to secure this summery dress for yourself! While my blue-striped version doesn’t appear to be available online right now, Shopbop’s got a cream-colored version in stock—and, what’s more, it’s on sale. Paired with a bright ballet flat or easy d’Orsay shoe, it’s an instant outfit.
