Black + White Stripes

Yesterday’s post featured a casual look perfect for running errands around the city. Today’s look is perfect for a night out on the town, whether it’s for a Girl’s Night Out or a date night with your man!  Stripes are my weakness (along with ruffles). Anytime I spot the perfect striped piece it inevitably ends up in my closet. That was how this black and white striped dress ended up in my closet…it was love at first sight! When I saw it online, I was expecting a fab dress, but I wasn’t expecting it to be of such great quality and detail. Y’all, everything about this dress is great. It is a feminine cut, has layered stripes, and an unexpected mesh back that gives it a little bit of an edge. This time around I paired it with nude accessories for a classic look, but I can’t wait to pair it with a bright statement necklace! I, of course, toted around my GiGi New York Shopper to hold everything that I don’t need!

    Get a new bag! I love that bag, but just because it is cute doesn't mean it goes with every outfit!

      Hi Molly,

      Thanks for your comment! I have plenty of bags (I'm a crazy bag lady!!), this one just so happens to be my favorite bag as of late, so I've been carrying it a lot! It's a great neutral bag for most of my outfits.

      Hope you have a great day, thanks for reading!
