Stripes & Slides

black and white stripe maxi dress

Holy moly, you guys. TWO MORE DAYS. The moving company came on Friday to pick up all of my things and I’ve been living out a suitcase and sleeping on an air mattress since then. Today and Tuesday are going to be kind of a whirlwind tying up loose ends and scrambling to see everyone I want to see before I leave, and then I’m flying out on Wednesday morning!

I wore this dress for a Friday night out in Brooklyn a few weeks ago, as well as out for dinner one night in Palm Springs. (And I’ve got it packed in my suitcase to wear again in Chicago sometime over the next week!) I bought it at full-price (with a promo code), but it’s currently on sale and then an extra 60% off!! If you do the math, it comes out to $37.95. If you like it, I’d say you have pretty much every excuse to buy it! 😉

The striped maxi is versatile enough to wear with your Jack Rogers by the beach, or with a strappy pair of sandals for a night out on the town. When I wore it in Brooklyn, I went with a pair of black leather cut-out slides. Have you tried the slip-on trend yet? (Kind of hard to believe mules are back on the market, isn’t it? I remember wearing “clogs” back in middle school!)

    You look gorgeous! I have this same dress, but of course I paid full price for it because I was so afraid it was going to sell out in my size…oops!

    This dress is beautiful, love the pattern, it is more of a subtle stripe than the classic. Love that you kept it monochrome with your clutch and shoes, but great because you can always change those up and re-invent the outfit 🙂

    This is so, so pretty! I love the little tassel detail on the dress, and Loft has so many good/can’t pass up items right now!

    Love LOFT! They are crushing it lately. They’re dresses are so cute and I’m obsessed with their new patterns. Got a jumpsuit from their recent release that I don’t want to stop wearing, except it’s a pretty obvious print so I don’t want to look like I only have one outfit now! 😉

    I absolutely LOVE this dress! Quick question though – How tall are you? I just want to make sure this dress is long enough for me (at 5’9″). Thanks!

    I went into Loft and saw that dress! It’s beautiful. I loved the way you styled it, especially with those heels. Gorgeous back drop, too!
