B + W Striped Maxi

Maxi dresses are a closet essential for me in the spring and summer. They are so effortless and look so easily put together. But I always seem to have the hardest time finding ones that work for short girls (being 5’2 isn’t always easy!) Lately I have been finding amazing maxi dresses everywhere I look and at great price points. This black and white striped maxi I found last week at Target. I tend to always shy away from black and white striped items, they make me think of prison uniforms, but I couldn’t resist this thick striped dress! Add a bold necklace and you’ve got one easy outfit!

  15. This is super cute! I totally feel your pain – they don't make many dresses that look good (without alterations) for us 5 ft 2 girls.

    Thanks for sharing!
