I’m excited to share this outfit post today because it is sort of different in terms of styling but I’m pretty proud of how it turned out!
When I saw this dress I was hesitant to buy it because the stripes seemed a little too bold, and the hem was a lot shorter than I’m comfortable with. When I stood still it was fine but as soon as I moved around the hem would ride up a lot. I decided it would be a great option for wearing over jeans or thick tights, so I bought it.
I wore this dress on a day that was cool enough for longer sleeves but not enough for pants. First I put on a stretchy pencil skirt and just wore the dress over top. The skirt gave me the length I needed without having to wear pants.
I like the idea of wearing a skirt under a dress for length and may have to try that with other combinations! After seeing this dress in photos I no longer think the pattern is too bold. I actually quite like it and am excited to wear it with pants and boot this fall! To keep my outfit simple for errands I wore my beloved Birks and leaf earrings.
Do you have any clever layering ideas to share? Does my dress pattern make you a little dizzy (my mom thought so!)?
