Stripes are everywhere and on everything this season. I am loving the stripe/peplum combination on this top. These shoes are super cute and this one shoulder top is a definite must have. I have been wanting to add some stripes into my Spring wardrobe and when I received this dress from Stitch Fix, it was love at first sight.
I took one look at this dress, instantly felt happiness and said a silent prayer that it would fit me! It is a classic A-line silhouette, with an unexpected cutout in the back. And pockets! I mean how do you ever say to no to a dress with pockets!!?? On my body type this dress is very cute. Stick on someone with some hips and a butt and it becomes sexy.
Lets talk details. First you have the pockets. Like I mentioned above, pockets just have a way of making everything better. I’m a total sucker for dresses with pockets. Secondly the back. The back of this dress highlights the cut out trend that is seen everywhere right now. While I love this trend, I am definitely not comfortable with cutouts on my midriff, around my chest or anywhere else that unwanted things might spill out of. 🙂 Therefore, the back is perfect for me! Last but not least, the buttons on the back. They are a great antique bronze color and a bit heavier than you would actually expect to see on a dress like this.
Completing my look, I added a hat and grey floral necklace. I adore hats and whenever I get a chance to wear one, I never turn it down. This on added the slightest touch of summer fun and playfulness. As you know from my previous post, I also love big statement jewelry. I kept this one within the same tones to give an even flow to the whole look. Sunnies were of course a must have accessory as. Both for fashion and well it’s bright outside. On a side note, I also think that a yellow clutch would be really cute with this and a nice pop of bright color.
For shoes I chose a pair of black, block heeled sandals. They dress the whole outfit up a bit and make it perfect for either a lunch date with girlfriends or a night out on the town. Add some flat sandals or even a pair of cute white tennis shoes and you can run errands, and handle all parental duties while looking super cute.
