Striped Summer Dress

August 7, 2017

I’m not sure if there is anything I like more than stripes in my wardrobe. Every fall, I order a new striped tee and end up with several more striped items before the weather even really gets cold. I get this ‘love of all things striped’ from my momma. I would totally describe her style as classic preppy. We used to joke that she only wore white, navy, black, red, and striped combinations of those colors! I tend to branch out a bit more when it comes to color (but honestly not much)! When I saw this Striped Summer Dress from Zaful, I knew I had to have it. The smocking reminds me of my childhood but the off the shoulder sassiness brought it right back around to 2017!

I cannot get over the double bell sleeve on this dress. And since the sleeves are technically long, I’ll be wearing this baby right into fall. I plan on pairing it with some boots or booties and a felt hat instead of straw and it’ll be ADORABLE. And at only $22, it’s seriously a steal. Now, this one is a mini dress. So if you’re a taller lady, this might fit extra perfect as a long tunic top with white jeans! I think that would be sooo cute. I’m wearing a medium here, but I think this is one of those dresses where I could’ve really worn any size!

Also, this had was probably the most exciting purchase I made all summer. I’ve been wanting a boater hat, but my head is kinda small and most of the ones I’ve tried on are all too big. So I looked into grabbing a Lack of ColorΒ hat (I’ve heard they’re amazing and you can size them to fit your head) but they’re super $$! So I decided to try this one first. I LOVE it! It’s not too big. It’s still a little roomy but it’s a boater so I assumed it would be since my head isn’t a perfect circle! I’m going to be wearing this one in Wednesday’s post as well because it’s that good!

If you haven’t seen this straw bag around the Instagram scene, then you might be living under a rock. Mine is absolute perfection because it’s lined and it only opens up a little instead of having to lay it flat and hope everything doesn’t fall out every time. I grabbed mine from BonVoyage by Morgan on Etsy and the quality is AMAZING! You guys should totally grab this bag! I’ve gotten loads of compliments on it!

    You’re so fab! Summer is the best season to wear clothes that will make you look more gorgeous but it’s also important to remember that you need to be comfortable while wearing it. I love your dress – pretty and comfy!

    Such a fun casual dress. Those sleeves are super cute. $22 would not hurt the pocket either.

    $22 is certainly a steal. It’s funny to me how personal styles evolve over years. I used to simply refuse to wear stripes, especially ALL stripes, because I thought I looked too wide. Now, I have to pause and ask myself if I need another striped item. It’s funny to me but I won’t give them up now. You look great!

      I feel you girl! I’ve only stripes that are pulled tight across my butt are unflattering! Other than that, I’m good!

    The sleeves on this dress are gorgeous! But I’m so crushing on that bag as well. I’ve been wanting one like that.
