My Top Five Casual Striped Dresses
We are going for an easy, breezy look today! This look would be perfect for a daytime lunch or a girls day out. It would even be cute for a laid-back festival look!
I love the ease of this dress. It's seriously soooo comfortable, and I love the small striped detail. It has tiny black and brown stripes, but from far away the overall color is brown. I am not normally gravitated to brown, but this little thang drew me in :) I got it at Forever 21 for, like, $7. I love the lace-up detail on the front too; it just adds a little something extra.
The dress is unavailable online, but five other casual striped dresses I'm loving right now are: one, two (that back is too good!) three, four (lots of colors & patterns available!) five (love the ruffle hem)
I paired it with my FAVORITE brown suede OTK boots from Dolce Vita (love that brand!) My exact style is from a couple years back and I couldn't find it online, but here is something very similar....(a bit pricey!)
Now...I know YOU KNOW I like affordable clothing. But there are exceptions to my rules, as mentioned before! These boots were, like, the most I've ever spent on boots. Ever.....
Like.....I splurged. I spent close to $250 for these.
Well, you ask....Was it worth it?
YES! I would do it again in a heartbeat. I wear them ALL the time. When I'm out and about random people always ask me where I got them, and tell me how great they are. I'm telling you- AT LEAST six people every time I'm out. Seriously. Noooot that I'm keeping track ;)
These boots are so versatile AND comfortable! I could (and do) wear them all day long! They make me feel so confident, and when I think I have nothing to wear, these are my go-to's! They jazz up any outfit. I know I will have these boots for a long time, so it was definitely an investment piece. I realize it's a lot of money, and a lot of people do not want to spend that much on boots. I linked some similar options for you here ($160) or here ($100)
