Dressed in Stripes with Mott 50

 Dress: Mott 50 ‘Toni’ Boatneck Dress c/o // Shoes: Dolce Vita // Hat: Mott 50 ‘Giselle’ c/o // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Ring: Kendra Scott  // 

 Would you believe me if I told you this outfit was 50 UPF (ultraviolet protection factor)? Meaning I can wear this outfit out to the beach and look absolutely chic while protecting my skin from those harmful UV rays. It’s the truth! Despite how adorable this outfit is, it’s made with special ultraviolet protection that helps protect from the sun. Mott 50 is a fairly new company that offers “fashion-forward sun protective clothing in soft, lightweight fabrics.” After wearing this dress for the past few weeks (yes, it has been on major repeat), I have become a huge Mott 50 fan! Not only is this dress comfortable, but it also has a flattering fit and can easily be transitioned into the fall with boots! I love knowing that I can wear this out in the heat of the day and my skin is also being protected from those harsh summertime rays! I’m not saying this is a good alternative to sunscreening, but rather an extra layer of protection!

One of my absolute favorite things about this dress, is it is so on trend with the stripe pattern! I am loving all striped dresses lately, from t-shirt to maxi dresses! Shop some adorable striped options here

    I LOVE finding products that protect my skin from the sun! I'm more than happy to spend whatever it takes to keep my skin shielded from the sun's harmful rays, especially when it looks as cute as yours!

    What?! I didn't know there was such a thing as clothes that can protect you from the sun. That's so neat! I adore this dress so much, and I love the hat you paired it with too.

    I MUST check out Mott 50! I am so paranoid about sun exposure after a bout with melanoma, so this would bring me such peace of mind. Your dress is gorgeous, and I love the way the bag pops against your dress 🙂

    Before reading about the company and the protection in this dress I was already in love! And then hearing about the protection makes it even better! I love how you styled it with a straw hat!

    That's insane. I had no idea you could make a dress sunproof! It's adorable as well, but I'm totally a sucker for any striped dress. I need to check Mott 50 out ASAP!
