Easy Breezy Striped Dress

|
My blogging brain is pretty fried today after yesterday's Amazon Prime Day post, and I was tempted to try a "Wordless Wednesday" post. But then I thought that might be pretty weird coming from me and I'd have to explain myself anyway, so I opted to write the post like always. I honestly have no idea how some bloggers have the energy to post regularly and comprehensively about sales from numerous retailers on the regular! As for me, I know my limits so I'm going to keep it simple today. Luckily my outfit with this striped dress is about as easy as it gets! While my dress is from Amazon and some colors have Prime shipping, it wasn't on sale for Prime Day so you haven't missed out on any special pricing.

It's highly possible that this dress is intended as a beach cover-up, but for me it was cute enough to wear as an everyday casual piece. Plus the fabric was thick enough that it wasn't see through, so it's not as flimsy as a lot of beach cover-up pieces are. Regardless of the intended use, I absolutely love it and wish it came in some solid colors, too! It was so easy to throw this on for a few errands on Sunday morning. Last Sunday also happened to be National Ice Cream Day, so we "celebrated" with a stop at Baskin-Robbins. I sampled their "America's Birthday Cake" flavor and it was so good! That became the new favorite for 3/4 of our family members. Per their website it's a "Strawberry and cake flavored ice creams throw a birthday party and invite cake pieces and a blue whipped cream flavored swirl over to celebrate too!" Next time you're in BR I would highly recommend getting a sample if it's still in stock!

Hm, somehow I got sidetracked on ice cream there, but like I said...not much more to say about this outfit! The dress runs true to size (I'm wearing XS) and is as just as comfortable as it looks! For my round-up of budget-friendly options for Tory Burch Miller sandals, check out this post. And for an under $30, budget-friendly designer inspired handbag try this option.

I didn't get this dress with the intention that it needed to be versatile since I really just wanted something that would be easy to throw on in a hurry and still look cute! That said, it does layer easily with basic pieces like a denim jacket and a cardigan if you need one for A/C or chilly evenings. I also paired it with a little bit of a nicer sandal in Outfit Two to dress it up just a tiny bit more.

TWO: Denim Jacket (Budget Option with more sizes) | Striped Dress (c/o) | Sandals 

Well, after the busyness of Monday and Tuesday today will be nice and relaxing since I'll be laying on my back for a couple of hours at the dentist. Ha ha...yeah no. Not exactly my favorite way to relax! But I'm trying to stay positive since it just needs to be done. I hope your Wednesday plans are a little better than mine and I'll see you back here on Friday!

  2. I love it when an easy piece like this dress is so versatile, it's perfect for the summer heat but looks great with a jacket. I'm glad you decided against wordless Wednesday - ha! If you had we wouldn't know about the new ice cream flavor at BR, it sounds interesting for sure! We went for ice cream on Saturday night and I almost didn't order anything - it makes it hard when the calories are next to every single item! Ugh, I did it though and lived to tell the tale, lol!

    1. Oh I know. As many times as I find the calories help full they're a killjoy when I just want to enjoy a treat!

  3. I could easily get distracted when talking about ice cream, too! I think I could have ice cream pretty much any meal of the day - and be happy. That is a cute dress on you! Hope your visit to the dentist goes well - I have one of those couple hour appointments coming up next week - that I have been avoiding.

  6. Gina, you are too cute! Of course, you got distracted by ice cream. I mean, who wouldn’t?! I am loving the dress as a beach cover up or an easy breezy casual day dress! And I hear you on the exhaustion of posting. I try to post every day and a few times a week I even get pretty deep. It is really tiring!

  7. Ha, I am more than okay with your ice cream distraction. Except now I want to have a bowl! :) That looks like such a perfect summer dress, so lightweight and casual.

    1. Thanks Lisa! "Multiple ways to wear" a particular piece was one of the most favorite post styles on my reader survey so I'm trying to make it happen as much as possible.

  9. that little dress is so cute and love it layered with the denim jacket. Yes this time of the year I'm over the sales. I don't want any more summer clothing and I don't want any Fall clothing yet.

    1. I hear you...the main thing on my wishlist right now are bags. So I need to start ignoring All the Sales and focus on that!

  10. Okay so since I live under a rock I didn't know that it was National Ice Cream Day! Birthday cake flavor sounds delicious. Strawberry is a favorite! Your stripes dress looks so adorable! It like it by itself and layered up. I can't wait for cooler weather! Ha! Love TB shoes. I really want to get those similar sandals you are wearing. I hope your day is going well so far!

    1. Ha, social media somehow lets me know anytime there is a National Anything Day! I'm pretty sure most people didn't know about it unless they spent time on social that day. :)

  13. I really love this dress, it looks perfect for casual days! And I’m with you Gina, I often wish I could pull off wordless Wednesday! My brain feels fried too and I’m unsure why. Summer always does this to me! Blogging regularly is harder than it looks so I respect those who are able to!
