Style Alert: Striped Midi Dress


Hi Loves, I wanted to share an interesting experience with you. I often get compliments about something I am wearing and my immediate reaction is to say Thank You and then tell the person where I got it from and how much it cost -- especially if I got a deal on it! I find myself rambling and providing all the details about the outfit. I'm like a walking/talking style blog post! This happened the other day and the lady who gave me the compliment said to me "I can't believe you told me where you got it from, women usually don't want to tell you." I thought that was so bizarre and shared with her that I love to talk about fashion and tell people where to get something they clearly like! I realized that as a fashion blogger it is something that just comes natural to me. I love sharing and I love supporting other women to be their most beautiful selves! How do you feel about this? Do you share or keep your shopping and outfit secrets to yourself? Let me know in the comments below, I would love to have a conversation about it!


Tomorrow is the start of August and we have officially entered the dog days of Summer! Here in Atlanta, the Summer weather has been weird! It's been hot and muggy but often cloudy and rainy. But there is still Summer to be had and I am hopeful that the Atlanta weather will pull itself together and give us a real Summer before it is all said and done. I'm still pulling out my Maxi and Midi Dresses and this little striped number makes me so happy. Stripes can go wrong if you don't wear them correctly. I stay away from horizontal stripes because they give the allusion of making you look wider. However, the opposite is true of vertical stripes and these multi-colored stripes just give me so much life!


I love a good slit on a dress. It adds extra flare to the style. What is unique about this midi dress is that there are two slits in the front. Typically, one slit is in the back or front of a dress. This midi gives you a two-for-one deal! I really like the placement of them because they hit right at each leg which makes for a great presentation when you walk. Your legs will peek through the slits in the right spot for a chic look!


Dress: Women's Striped Strappy Belted Midi Dress - Xhilaration

Shoes: Vince Camuto Acelyn Sandal

Earrings: Sugarfix by BaubleBar Beaded Double Hoop Earrings

Bracelet: Open Cuff Hammered Metal Bracelet - Universal Thread™


Anyone who knows me knows I love a good accessory. Accessories can make or break an outfit. These double hoop drop beaded earrings are so cute and the pop of yellow is just what this striped maxi dress needs. The details are sure to get you noticed and will have people asking where you got them from.
