Swayed by Stripes

stripe dress with leather pockets

Yep, a stripe dress twice this week. I can't even apologize for it. What can I say? Stripes for the win is all I got. In my opinion, they provide the perfect blank canvas for so many styling options and have many fashion faces; classic, preppy, chic, edgy and even glamorous. I am sure I left off a million other adjectives that describe this pattern we all seem addicted to. They can do no wrong when it comes to clothing.

SHOP THE LOOK


This Ruche dress was another Labor Day purchase. I saw a similar one at J.Crew Factory, but once I finally decided to pull the checkout trigger, it was gone. So when I saw this one online, I added it to my basket immediately. It's another early fall staple that is helping to ease me into the seasonal transition.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I am off to join my neighborhood girlfriends for our 2nd annual wine festival trip. Grape stomping here we come!

I totally bought the J. Crew Factory version of this dress back in August! I didn't even try it on before I bought it...which is very rare for me. I just knew I would regret it if I passed it up, even though I can't wear it right now. Your post is completely confirming my purchase and I can't wait to style it once I'm not preggo anymore. :)

Ashleigh said...

That dress is so cute! It actually reminds me of one I bought my daughter for back-to-school. I think it's the shape.
