Dress - Similar Style for Summer & Similar Style for Fall // Vest - Similar (On Super Sale for Labor Day!)
So excited to be apart of Sarah's first installment of The Lovely Lookbook. I think this is a fabulous way for any and all women to share how they style a specific piece. My inner (and outer) fashion fiend loves to see how pieces can be styled in many different ways.
Today I styled a striped tee dress. I love tee dresses for the Summer for many reasons. They are extremely comfortable, they can be worn at work, or as an easy outfit on the weekends, and they can be styled with pretty much anything.
This dress that I am wearing in particular is a Joe Fresh dress I scored at JCP for $5! I'm telling ya, the deals are out there if you know where to look....and right now is the time with all the amazing Labor Day sales going on!
I'm pretty short, like 5'3, but that's what I like to tell myself...I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually 5'2 1/2 or something. So shorter dresses tend to give me a longer and leaner look since I am mostly all torso and stubby legs. This gives my legs a little length attention, if you will. And I don't mean hoochie short. A little above the knee, like this dress, is about as short as I go. Think finger tip rule from junior high.
Since tee dresses are cut exactly how they sound, basically a very large t shirt, I paired my dress with my favorite military vest that has the cinch option to break up the tee and accentuate my waist for shape. This also adds a great break up in pattern and color depth. A brown crossbody can finish any look, but I can easily see me wearing this same outfit with a cute red crossbody or a neon coral one to add a great vibrant POP of color.
Hope you all are enjoying your three day weekend!
