This dress has been sitting in my closet for quite some time. Not because I didn’t like it or had nothing to wear with it. I haven’t worn it because I hate wearing stripes. Here’s the thing: I absolutely LOVE stripes…just not on me! Due to stripes making me look really wide and busty (in my mind), I tend to shy away from them. Whether you realize it or not, I’m not lacking in boobies (though I do wish I were an A cup). So to me, stripes makes me look larger than I’d care for. And it doesn’t help that I have an inverted triangle body type.
I was going through my jacket closet and ran across this vest and thought ‘Hmmm’. So of course I tried it on over my dress and I loved it. For some reason, the vest somehow broke up the stripes and didn’t make me look as busty as usual. So now when I need to throw on something quick and convenient, I’ve got this cute combination as an option.
What I really like about this dress is how easy, simple, and casual it is. It’s just as comfortable (if not more…seriously) as a tee and sweats. It’s not body snugging but yet it gives…just the right amount of stretch. And most of all, it stays in its place. What do I mean? You know how it seems you’re always tugging on certain dresses because it keeps rising? Not this one! It stays put…right at the knee. In other words, easy, breezy, beautiful, and comfortable! And most noteworthy, it’s probably gonna take me right on into spring! Yes!
How do you wear your stripes? I’d love to know. Leave a comment…maybe I’ll learn something new from you!
Thanks for stopping by. And as always, have a beautiful day!
