It's no secret that I love stripes. I dress pretty simple for the most part and stripes are my way of being bold. I'm not really into overly trendy clothes, I prefer a more classic look. I also tend to gravitate toward black and white because I like the option to accessorize with colors. I make it a point never to buy something that can't be worn for more than one type of occasion.
So when I saw this black and white striped dress last week at Nordstrom I knew I had to buy it. The lady-like silhouette and thick jacquard fabric are super flattering. The fit and flare style just really works with my body type. I wore this dress to Church and brunch last Sunday and again this week to a work meeting.
I've spent the last few years stocking up on child-friendly clothes and it's fun to splurge on more grown-up pieces once in a while. I've been pretty back and forth emotionally about going back to work and picking up some new clothes is definitely helping to swing me in a more excited direction. I like putting on a simple dress and heels and feeling polished.
Besides being the perfect little day-time dress in the front, it has a little bit of unexpected sass in the back making it the perfect transition from office to date night. The cut-out is small and tasteful and I can still wear a normal bra. Perfection.
