If you are a regular reader, you know I’m a huge fan of stripes. So when I saw this dress on sale, I just had to have it- even though it looked like this picture on right.
It’s shapeless and unflattering and the wrong length- and my shoes aren’t helping much!
However, I knew with some minor tweaking, I could make this dress stylish.
I’ve added a belt- which helps define my waist- and also shortens the dress to above the knee.
Then I added this utility style jacket. I love this jacket- it is so easy to throw on over anything to add warmth, texture and style.
I’m wearing my desert booties, which is a bit of a risk for me. I would have NEVER worn these shoes with a dress a year ago- but I honestly think they are perfect for this outfit. If you’re not feeling adventurous, below I’m also showing the same outfit with my brown boots.
Dress: Land’s End, Jacket: Marshalls, Belt: American Eagle, Necklace: Kohl’s, Booties: Kohl’s, Boots: DSW
