Spring Weekend Style: Casual Stripe Dress with Converse
Hello, friends! TGIF! And today, I really mean it. I haven’t wanted to talk about it, but my husband has been gone to Seattle all week for work. He gets home tonight. You can see now why I’ve been counting down the days till this weekend since Monday, ha!
He rarely travels, and our home always feels like there is a gaping hole when he is away. We’ve all been a bit out of sorts this week, and I can’t wait to have him back with us. It’s supposed to snow and sleet today, so I’m hoping it doesn’t cause delays with air travel.
Today is day 9 of my 27 Days of Spring Fashion style collab with Cyndi Spivey. If you’re just catching up, we are each sharing a new spring outfit every day during the month of March for your spring style inspiration! Today I’m styling an easy weekend look with a knit shift dress from Old Navy that is only $24.
I shot this look last Saturday, and it was SO FREEZING COLD. Like 17 degrees cold. I got some really strange looks from passers by. I usually do anyway, just for taking pictures of myself, but I definitely looked a little crazy dressed like this while Paul was all bundled up in coat with a hat and scarf.
Every year, Cyndi and I debate whether to do spring fashion in March of April. It always seems to make sense to do it in March because spring styles start to sell out in April, and other areas of the country get spring before we do, but we do set ourselves up for some uncomfortable photo shoots! LOL!
This striped shift dress is from Old Navy. I had a similar one last fall, and I really enjoyed it for a change from my typical sheath. This is a different silhouette for me, but it’s fun paired with Converse for a casual weekend look.
I love this grey stripe, but it also comes in solid black, navy stripe, and lime stripe. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
My saddle bag is from last year, but Sole Society has a similar style this season. It comes in grey, blush, and camel.
I kept my jewelry simple with a long silver charm necklace (sold out, and I can’t for the life of me find anything like it) and my triple hoop earrings.
For a similar look in a more fitted silhouette, check out this tee dress for $16. You can see me wearing it on Instagram. I think this one would be especially cute with a jean jacket on top, and of course since it has short sleeves, you will probably want the extra layer for warmth too.
Friday is my linkup day, so if you have a fashion blog, I’d love for you to join us. If you’re here for your weekly dose of style inspiration, you’ll find plenty of that here.
Also, be sure to visit Cyndi and see the spring outfit she’s styling today. Have a great weekend!
