Stripes and denim

both front and back have pleats… not necessarily the greatest thing ever… 

Dress: Target (don’t see it on their site) (other striped options here here, herehere, here, here)

Jacket: H&M (old) (similar here, here, here)

Shoes: old (similar here, here)  (love these)

Necklace: BaubleBar

Belt: ?

Bag: Coach  (gorgeous in deep port too)

Part of me thinks the style of this dress is awkward but the other part loves it anyway. Mr. liked it so I decided to keep it! 

This dress will transition nicely into fall. And I’m always a fan of clothes that can be worn for more than just one season. 

Speaking of seasons, who is excited about Fall almost being here?  J.Crew style sessions is tonight and their new Fall collection is out.  They’re having a promo as well – get 25% off when you spend $150+.

Here are just some of my faves: Love this sweater in black, heart blouse, front tweed tee, chino pants.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I actually like the pleats! The volume is cute on you since you're so little. And I am SO ready for fall! I want to wear layer and boots!

    I purchased this dress about a week ago in the alternate color (black with tan stripes). I wore it today! So funny to open your blog and see [almost] the same outfit on you as I'm sitting here wearing [almost] the same thing! I paired mine with a brown belt, white bubble necklace and leopard flats. I agree with you that the style is a little awkward… part of me wants it to be a little shorter, maybe. BUT it is perfect for the office, nontheless.
