The Striped Dress


While I’ve been killing myself to get an outfit post up for you all to enjoy, I have also been learning the ins-and-outs of Photoshop thanks to my friend and co-author, Sarah. Hopefully our readers will be as patient with me as she has been!


As many of you may know from our mini interviews in our About section, dresses are one of my fashion weaknesses. I can always find a new reason to buy a new dress, especially comfortable swing dresses like this striped one.



Dan and I are still exploring our somewhat new neighborhood. We moved in last July and since we started on projects right away, we did not get out to do much walking through the shoppes downtown when the weather was still warm. This summer will be different. I am still learning about all the fun places within walking distance of our home. It is already nice enough living a few blocks from the market, the bank, the local ice cream shop and Starbucks. We love our walkable neighborhood!



I love throwing on Converse with almost any outfit for an more causal look. Especially when there is walking involved!  This look would be perfect for a simple date night out for pizza, or paired with heeled booties and a statement jewelry piece if you would like to go a bit dressier. See how to get both looks below. Which one is your favorite?
