Cost Per Wear: Pink & Blue Striped Dress


Just looking back at my archives I can't believe how many times I've restyled this dress! I thrifted it almost two years ago for only $5 and like my black and white striped dress, has been a real workhorse in my closet. It just goes to show you how many options you have with a jersey dress. They are comfortable and very versatile!

I wore this last week to work. It's that in between stage of fall now where the mornings are cool then the day warms up. Layers are a perfect solution to that and a vest gives a surprising amount of warmth without being too warm. For a more casual vibe, my Converse were my go-to choice! How do you layer for early fall?

  2. This dress is gorgeous and plus it has stripes and it suits the color of the month which is Pink! You got it for such a great deal. I love today's outfit and the pairing with the sweatshirt, best. Try this with your Floral Navy+Pink Midi Skirt by SheIn over it. I can picture it looking great.

  8. So many great ideas and I love that you chose a colored striped dress versus a b/w striped dress, which I think is harder to style.
