I’m LOVING striped dresses at the moment – they’re everywhere this summer aren’t they? It’s like everyone’s bored of England and we all want to be from Paris… and well, I’m okay with that.
Recently I stumbled across the perfect dress from Blue Vanilla. I’m sick of always buying strappy dresses and then complaining about how dreadful my shoulders look, so when I saw a shift dress with this navy and white striped style I was completely sold.
I decided I’d style this dress with my favourite black Public Desire boots and my H&M black waistcoat. It’s got a bit of a ‘dressed up’ vibe but swap the heeled boots for flip flops and you’d have the perfect beach outfit too. It didn’t come with the belt but I added it on and totally thought it worked! This dress is definitely a summer holiday staple for covering up the shoulders (I’m so burn prone) and I’ll wear it in winter with tights and a thick black coat.
Dress – Blue Vanilla
Waistcoat – H&M
Shoes – Public Desire
Bag – Accessorize
Belt – New Look (came with a skirt)
Necklace – New Look
Sunglasses – XO Jewellery
Thoughts on the dress? I think it’s fab for this time of year and really brings you in to the ‘stripe’ trend of SS15 – plus it was only £22!
Hope you all have a sassy Monday!
