Desperately seeking Seersucker

It's finally here! If you live in the South, seersucker season has arrived. Those who live north of Dixie can break out those lovely stripes, but I prefer to keep my seersucker in storage until Memorial day. If you wear your stripes too early you risk getting it spattered with mud, muck and whatever winter wetness is still lingering around.

Seersucker Sampler

1. Cotton Snaps // Seersucker Sunglasses Straps
I have a few pairs of sunglasses straps (croakies) from my time in the south. I normally wear my sunglasses on my head, but some sunglasses have a nose piece that gets caught in my hair. These straps are perfect solution for those glasses and any pair you don't want to lose overboard. 

2. J. Crew // Seersucker Demi Underwire Top & Seersucker Bikini Bottom
This is such a cute bikini. It's part of an entire seersucker swim collection from J. Crew that includes one-piece, tankini and bikini options. 

3. Modcloth // Give Me Amour Dress in Cloud

White on white seersucker is one of my absolute favorites. This dress (I think it's by Jessica Simpson) would be flattering on many body types. The sweetheart neckline is created by a faux-wrap front that ties in a bow on the back of the dress. 

4. J. Crew // Colorblock Seersucker Short

These shorts offer a variation on the traditional seersucker by colorblocking lilac and dark purple seersucker fabrics. 

5. Lilly Pulitzer // January Scallop Hem Skort
Lilly Pulitzer is the queen of classic preppy style with a twist. This skort would be a winner with a straight hem, but the scalloped hem adds the crown. And it has pockets!

6. Sperry // Seersucker Bahama 2-Eye

Sperrys have been a summertime staple for generations. This tan seersucker pairs well with jeans and will only help your tan when you wear them with shorts!

7. Greg Norman // Women's Seersucker Crestin Cap
This would make a great summer hat! The bright color and the lightweight seersucker fabric will keep you cool at the beach or just running errands.
