A Case of Stripes {Trend of the Month Link-up}

Marionberry's Trend of the Month Link-up for January is all about stripes! When I first read about the challenge, this book popped into my former elementary school teacher head, hence the title of this post... though I'm really hoping my interpretation of stripes isn't necessarily bad, so I eliminated that hopefully non-accurate adjective.

I recently purchased this little dress after hemming and hawing over purchasing each of the multitudinous reincarnations of it over and over again. The recent additional 30% off sale at Anthro was what sealed the deal on making this version mine. I wasn't too sure about it when it arrived, but after much convincing by my mom and sister I think it's a keeper.

EARRINGS {Anthro - old; alternative} // CARDIGAN {J.Crew - old; alternative} //
DRESS // NECKLACE {F21 - old; alternative} // TIGHTS {Target} //
BOOTS {Michael Kors - old; alternative; alternative} // NAIL POLISH 

Here are a few other ways I've worn stripes that I've documented on the blog:
Friday Night Lights
The Hunt for Red October
A Reprieve
Style That Item

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Wednesday!

I just wanted to chime in that I too think your dress is amazing. It's my favourite look in this month's trend of the month. Not only that, you have accessorized it beautifully. {Sigh}

Thanks, M! That necklace was a super-cheap F21 find.
