The Perfect Striped Dress For Spring

Another day, another outfit with my go-to sneakers. But you guys, this time I’m wearing them with a striped dress, which obviously means I’m totally dressed up. 

(I’ll wear heels again soon. But these tootsies are in DIRE need of a pedicure and right now ain’t nobody got time for that.)

This is THE perfect striped dress for spring. Especially if you live in the Midwest, and “spring” means 35 and rainy. 

I keep seeing all of these Easter dress posts and I’m like – WAIT. I don’t think I’m going to eat enough candy to keep me warm in any of those little numbers. So, this is my Easter look. Complete with sleeves and a jacket. 

This dress has a little stretch to it, which makes it super comfortable and easy to wear. It runs a bit big – I’m wearing an XS postpartum, which is kind of crazy. I like that it’s longer, so I don’t need to worry about mooning anyone. #notcute. Also, there’s no zipper, which makes it feel easy and relaxed. 

The possibilities with this dress are endless. In summer I will ditch the denim jacket and pair it with my favorite espadrilles or my comfy flat sandals. Another fun spring look? Pair it with Hunter boots for a chic rainy day style. 

Alright, let’s talk these sunnies. Ummm, they’re $15. FOR REAL. (You guys know I would never joke about such a thing.)

Fun fact: this tote is actually my mom’s. 🙂 I love it because it’s such a classic and will never go out of style. In the widget below I’ve linked some similar totes I have my eye on…

Happy Spring, sweet friends!

    I wear a similar combo all of the time! I need to find a stripped dress that is nursing friendly for summer. I love wearing dresses but I don’t have any that really work for nursing.
