I have been on a striped dress kick and this is a continuation of my previous post here. This dress was so long that I had to take up the hem by four inches so that I would not trip on it. Now I am wondering if it looks too short for its style; however, you can see my pumps with this length. The material of this Liz Claiborne dress is 95% polyester and 5% spandex and I love the drape and flow of it.
One of my favorite styling pieces to wear with a maxi dress is the denim jacket. It makes for a great transition outfit before the heat of summer arrives, and the jacket adds a casual, chic look.
My leather pumps are by Array. They have a comfortable 2 inch kitten heel. I also have a blue shrug that goes perfectly with this dress and is lightweight and can be worn during the summer. I will have to show the dress to you wearing the shrug. This sleeveless dress is cool even on a very hot day when worn alone and with summer sandals.
This is a fun dress by LuLaRoe. It is a sheath-style dress and the material is 59% Rayon 38% Polyester 3% Spandex. It’s stretchy and very comfortable.
I like my lighter-colored denim jacket with this dress as I think it looks more summery. As a general rule, it is thought that lighter shades of denim draw attention to the body and darker denim creates a slimming effect. So at the risk of looking less than slim, I still prefer the lighter denim with this dress.
But I prefer the darker denim with this dress below.
Mabel loves her new play yard by the way. But you certainly couldn’t tell by her smile here.
Love your style…but …consider wearing different shoes with the lighter blue outfit! The red shoes should possibly take a long siesta during the summer.
Mabel is always in style. You are so lucky to have such a happy dog!
I actually wear tan sandals with this dress and brought them up with me to the bench to switch to as the red shoes are not something I would normally pick with the lighter dress. But the red shoes seemed like an unexpected look and I was wondering if anyone would notice. And you did! Thank you.
