Striped Dress + Fringe Heels

July 22, 2015

I’ve dubbed this the summer I made peace with the strapless bra. I’m sorry I just said that on the internet, but it’s the truth. I’ve always hated them but felt limited in my fashion choices by my hate. I feel like I have grown as a person. I mean, imagine the trends I would have missed out on in this season alone. Off the shoulder, I’m talking to you. Okay, in all seriousness, I realize there are far more important things in the world, but I felt like I needed to fill you in. Plus, I’m so glad I got over my aversion because this might just be one of my favorite outfits of the summer. This striped dress is seriously so chic, and it just feels very me. Don’t even get me started on the fringe heels. I die. I wore this to a fun baby shower over the weekend. I love an excuse to get dressed up! LuLu*s striped dress, karen walker sunglasses, Steve Madden fringe heels, red coach bag LuLu*s striped dress, karen walker sunglasses LuLu*s striped dress, red coach bag, karen walker sunglasses 3 LuLu*s striped dress, red coach bag, karen walker sunglasses LuLu*s striped dress, Steve Madden finge heels, red coach bag, karen walker sunglasses LuLu*s striped dress, Steve Madden fringe heels, red coach bag, karen walker sunglasses 1 LuLu*s striped dress, Steve Madden fringe heels, red coach bag, karen walker sunglasses 2 steve madden fringe sandals

    Yep, getting over my strapless bra aversion changed my fashion options in the best way. It doesn’t even bother me to wear one anymore. Those heels really are SO FUN. And I love the print on that dress. There’s a Barcelona cami with an almost identical grid print and of course, it’s calling my name!

      I actually thought about that cami when I got the dress because I’ve always loved it! You might need the dress. 🙂

    I LOVE that you are doing burgundy in the summer! I love the color but I’ve been struggling with feeling to fallish when I wear it. This is totally working. Oh, and I kinda want to know what strapless bra you like because I’ve had the same ONE for like 10 years that I wear when I have no other choice and I hate it.

      I actually randomly found it at TJMaxx or Ross. I think it is Calvin Klein. Sorry, wish I had a better answer for you! It’s hard to find a good one…

    I’ve always hated strapless bras too, I try to deal with them in the name of fashion but, I still don’t like them maybe I’ll come across one that will wash this hatred away for these bra. On another note I’m loving your striped dress looks very lovely on you, paired perfectly with those fringe heels and very cute coach purse, you look awesome.

    Woohoo! Welcome to the strapless bra club! They really are lifesavers in the summer time! If you couldn’t wear this dress it would’ve been a sad day.

    I’m obsessing over those fringe heels… They are amazing. I’m on a no buy right now so I sadly won’t be getting them, it hurts to type that lol.

    Ugh – if only I could find a strapless bra! Like most women, I just can’t stand them, but because I am a large-chested girl, there’s VERY few options out there. Seriously, summer clothes are made for strapless bras, and it’s a real struggle.

    This is a really great dress and I’m loving those shoes!
