Striped Dress Styling Collaboration



When I "met" Stephanie, from White Coat Wardrobe I was instantly drawn in by her color combos, classic pieces and insanely awesome styling. I was in love... then I realized why I was in love, our closets are soul mates. One key piece bonded both the closets' and the closest fillers-- the j. crew factory wide stripe knit dress- swoon. When Steph suggested a styling collaboration I just couldn't resist! Also, raise your hand if you are obsessed with the layering effect that Steph used to style her dress with... yeah, cause I totally am. 

(side bar: This was my first venture into outfit posts with a tri-pod and a remote... I am fairly certain an elderly gentleman going to check his mail thought I was going to blow something up with my small remote due the EMENSE amount of shade he was throwing my way)

I have spoken the wonders of this dress for summer here, but now it is fall's turn to take a crack at it. 

I whole heartily believe that comfy is a state of mind. Anything can be comfy. I also whole heartily believe that the first few days of fall are when the world is at its comfiest-- the nip in the air,  new sweaters and boots (even if they are only really necessary for the walk to the car) the first sips of pumpkin beverages and baked goods. The fact that Texas weather has worse mood swings than a 14 year old girl (and trust me I would know) requires some Houdini-esque moves to adapt to the ever changing temperatures this time of year. To me that means comfy and there is nothing comfier than a medium weight-short-sleeve-shift dress. I "fall-ed" it up with a legging, camel boot, a bright pop of an emerald earring and a coral lip.


Now go check out Stephanie and how she styled her striped dress (and all of her other wonderful white coat wardrobe outfits!!)

Love the way you styled your dress. Your pictures look great! A lot of times pictures look like they were taken with a tripod, but these are awesome!! I have never tried the tripod before, although my life might be easier because I wouldn't have to battle my husband about taking my pictures as much. And I love your bag!

What would you say if I told you I've never shopped at J. Crew or J. Crew Factory...?
GETTING ON THAT.

These are the cutest pictures of you. Tripod/remote win.
My favorite part of this post is the sketched out old man.
