Who loves stripes?



If you love stripes, run run run to your local Old Navy and find this dress....
it's on clearance for $7.49!
(Click on the pictures to open up a larger image)



I adore it.  Love the pockets, stripes, 3/4 sleeves, and the super flattering scoop neckline.


.....one minor issues is that the pockets do shift a bit and can cause a funny crease like in this picture, but I will deal with it.

The dress doesn't come with a belt, so I added this one; it looks good with or without the belt, but I wanted a slightly less casual look.

I love pairing it with this black and white striped Willie Smith cardigan when it was chilly this morning.



Lia Sophia 'Melissa' necklace.  This is my newest favorite.  it took me some time to warm up to it, but now its at the top of my list.  Its so versatile and a little 'French' looking.




Monday at school....taken, as always, in the loo....
Simple black trousers(APT 9 curvy) and thrifted top.

This is super casual Tuesday...skinnies and thrifted cardigan and button down shirt.  The orange scarf gives this simple outfit some lively contrast.

Another super casual day.  What is up with my hair?  We've had several windy days and my hair has been whipped into submission.  Ralph Lauren straight leg jeans, thrifted sweater.

Express scarf purchased last year on clearance.  I wore this versatile snake print infinity scarf all summer last year.


With my casual jeans and sweater outfit, I wore this Lia Sophia 'Seltzer' earring and necklace set.  




My photographer....the future model?  

My semester is nearly over and fall semester (begins in August) should be my last...then I will have my Master's degree, FINALLY.
I start traveling to Indianapolis for job training on May 20th...
I'm ready and excited...so many changes on the horizon.
Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Thanks, Alice.....It wasn't actually in the clearance section...there was a huge rack of long sleeve T-shirts (some with stripes) and these dresses,,,,but they were with the regular priced items. Maybe you can find it online...there were solid colors and a tan and white striped one too.
