Nothing makes me more excited than stripes! If there is a classic winter staple to add into your closet, it’s a long sleeve striped dress! You can style them so many ways for cooler days and still feel like it’s summer! Living in a place that is warm almost always, I love the option of wearing long sleeve with a breeze on the legs!
How’s your weekend going?! Yesterday, I made peanut blossoms with a friend and it was a major fail. They were undercooked and then we made different ones and they burnt. We tried a third batch and they were hard and overcooked! Never had a problem with these cookies before so I am not sure what happened!
Also, every time I make these, I feel like I turn into a big blob of peanut butter because I eat so many of them, ha! Or a big pile of peppermint bark. That sums me up during Christmas time. They say you are what you eat, right?!
Can you believe that the dress is only $19.00?! That is a steal for sure! For the longest time it was sold out in both colors (comes in navy and white). Every few days I would stalk the Old Navy website and when the striped dress finally came back in stock, I jumped on it!
I am wearing a size small and it fits pretty true to size. It’s made of a super stretchy material, so the sleeves are fitted but the body is more relaxed (aka not skin tight!). Don’t want to look like I am going clubbing if you know what I mean. Also, I have extremely long arms and the sleeve hit right above my wrist bone.
Personally, I loved the white striped dress over the navy stripe! Now that I am looking at it though, there are endless possibilities on ways to add pops of color with the navy dress! Both are equally cute and it comes down to preference!
Stripes will always be nautical and transport me back to a warm summer day at the beach. To keep with the theme, I styled the striped dress with a yellow North Face raincoat. Praise the Lord for raincoats! I lived my entire life without one. Then one day my mom gifted me this jacket for Christmas and there’s no turning back. Good bye umbrellas.
How cute would the dress be with some yellow Hunter rain boots. I’ve dreamed of these shoes for forever and just need to bite the bullet one day and buy them! Because that is a cute rainy day look that I need in my life! It wasn’t exactly raining when I took these photos but the weather was yuck.
I paired the dress with white sneakers for a more casual outfit. These are my all time favorite canvas white sneakers and super comfy (only $35!)! They are on rotation all week long! Next time I wear the dress, I might also style it with a causal ball cap!
You could also pair them with loafers and flats! Instead of a rain jacket, try a sweater blazer or a denim jacket for an added layer! Would you like if I did an Instagram reel with a few ways on how to style this dress?! It’s a good way for me to push myself out of my comfort zone and also give you guys some more styling options! Video is SO different than posing for a camera!
