I don’t think it’s a secret that I love everything striped! I am living the striped life in a major way, y’all. I spotted this dress from Express while out Christmas shopping last month and I knew I had to have it! I usually try really hard to NOT buy myself things while shopping for others, but I just couldn’t resist this one. This dress is just so soft and cozy and totally easy to style. It definitely looks like a shapeless sack before any accessorizing, but luckily I have quite the arsenal of belts to solve that problem.
I’d also like to give a shout out to this dress for having long sleeves! Why are long sleeves so rare to find on dresses anyway? I know I don’t live in a cold climate, but I like having long sleeves to wear to my chilly office or for our winter vacations to New Mexico. I was so happy to find this dress right before our trip, because it definitely kept me warm in the cold weather. I wore this outfit in Albuquerque for a fun day of lunching with friends, shopping and running errands. These pictures were taken outside of my new favorite NM jewelry store, Sunwest Silver. Obviously I loved the bring pink building, but the jewelry inside was absolutely amazing! The selection is huge and it was so fun browsing everything. I could probably spend hours in that place!
Anyway, in the widget below I have picked some of my favorite striped items! I wore the same coat, boots and bag for our whole NM trip so I thought it’d be fun to link to some different items today. I definitely want them all!
