My Top Five Casual Striped Dresses

My Top Five Casual Striped Dresses

top five casual striped dresses, festival look, how to style dress in spring

Hey y'all!

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)

I got my hat at Marshall's, so unfortunately it's not linkable. Similar hats: one, two, three (love the blush detail on the last one)
