So I'm not to sure how I feel about this dress on myself after looking back on these photos. I wasn't going to share them at all but I figured why not share it, there's nothing to be ashamed of. It seems to me though, that I keep trying to pull off wearing this dress and it always looks off. I've had it in my closet for sometime and don't wear it to often because I'm beginning to think "stripes don't seem to suit me so well". Are you suppose to wear them the long way (vertically) if you're shorter? At least it was a comfy outfit attempt for such a lovely Fall day. How do you pull off stripes? Or do they not work on you at all either?

  1. Love those shoes and your hair is looking so rad!! xoxo

  2. I'm a fatty and I love me some stripes. Horizontal are my favourites. I think it's fun how my boobs make the stripes on my chest look so distorted.

    I love that dress on you! I would love a dress like this - and it looks so comfy!!

  3. First of all, you're adorable. But I do agree, the dress is a little off. I think it's the collar and the cap sleeves. Have you tried the dress with a jacket, cardigan or sweater over it? You might like it more if the stripes are sort of broken up/balanced out with a different print or solid color.
    I feel like a total weirdo for critiquing your outfit post, and you do look cute. We (women) can get bogged down by what we see in the mirror vs. what we want to see in the mirror. Focus on how you FEEL in the outfit- it's far more important!

    1. Critiquing is so welcomed. I'm so lost with stripes and I appreciate your input. I think a jacket like you mentioned would surely help. Plus I'm a bit curvy lately so maybe this one will sit in the back of the closet for a bit longer ;)

  4. Not that I'm fashion forward, cause I'm not! But I like the dress, more so, I like the top half. I've seen lots of people wear dresses and then wear a skirt over top, maybe try something like that with this one? Cause the top half is really cute and looks great.

  5. You look cute! I love wearing stripes and I am short. Try pairing the dress with a thick belt around your waist to balance out all the stripes, maybe? I love the green & grey but I think a rich brown would look nice too. Your hair looks great, by the way.

  6. I think you look lovely in stripes and the green really suits you. It also looks super comfy too which is always a win in my book!

    I know how you feel about struggling to wear some items in your wardrobe. I tend to shy from showing off anything above my knees and have a few dresses that I'll wear "one day". :)

  7. I think you look cute, AND comfortable! I love the colors especially :)

  8. I love stripes too, but they always feel a bit off if I don't wear a cardigan or hoody over top, maybe that's the same issue for you?
