I ordered this striped midi dress the second I laid eyes on it. It is, by far, the most non-boring basic dress! Stripes are without a doubt my favorite, and when I seen this midi dress with the gorgeous black stripes, I new I had to have it.
It's gorgeous on it's own, it's gorgeous when layered and paired with other items. It's a win win all the way around.
It can be dressed up and down.
That is something that I love to look for when I am shopping. Something that I know I'll love 4 months from now and that I can wear with tons of different things. If something is too trendy and I can see myself hating it in 2 weeks or even a month, I try to rationalize and not be too hasty with plunking down my hard earned pennies for the item.
I knew when I first saw it that I would love it a year or even 2 years from now. So I made the purchase and am very pleased!
Look 1: Sporty
This dress is a 4 and is a tad big around the waist and hips, not too bad, though. I really think this dress would be lovely on any body type- it is very flattering. Even with the horizontal stripes, which can sometimes be tricky on a petite gal like myself!
I bought this little Moto jacket last year on Black Friday, and it's still my all time favorite! Looking forward to wearing it this fall.
It took me a year to find one in which didn't look too Harley Davidson, lol! I don't know, I feel like a lot of them can look extremely biker chick, and that's not the look I was going for.
I wanted something a little edgy, yet still held a feminine shape. I felt this one came closest.
This can be worn on the weekend, going out with a friend or even for a casual date night. There is always a time and place for a casual and sporty look. You could even throw on a baseball cap and BAM you're ready for a game, if that's you sort of thing!

It's cute, it is a "cuter casual" and the small heel of the boot gives this look a little boost. :)
