The Perfect Striped Dress

Topshop striped dress (wearing size US 2) // plaid blanket scarf, similar here

I wore this striped dress last week to explore the Greenbrierโ€ฆ and have to say it’s the perfect striped dress for fall! Imagine all the ways you could wear itโ€ฆ with riding boots, different color Hunter boots, with a cardigan, with a puffer vest, with a fur vest, with a different printed scarf, the list goes on and on. It is a preppy fall staple! BTW, I am in love with these new Hunter boots. The pink isn’t a hot pink like years’ past, it’s a lighter pink and it works as a neutral for most outfits.
My family spent 14 hours in the car over the past couple of days… We arrived in New England late last night to see some family members that live up here. It was suuuuch a long car ride that I read two novels and took a bunch of naps. I am so thankful to be here, though, the fall scenery is absolutely gorgeous!

  2. I have the similar gray striped sweater dress from Topshop, and it is definitely a fall staple. Also, these Hunter boots are officially on my wish list. I have black ones, but I love the light pink!

  15. What a great look! I wouldn't have thought to put that pink with it, but it really works! Long car rides with the family can be tough, but I can't wait to hear all about it!

  18. That color is gorgeous and so pretty with the stripe dress. Sounds like such a long car ride and I remember long car rides when I was little and I hated them but now I think I like them much better as you can read novels and other fun stuff not like before. Glad you got there safe and get to see some family.

  36. Gotta say i was thinking super cute outfit as i scrolled down until i hit those pepto boots. LOL. maybe it's my monitor. Love Hunter boots but i would have paired with my red ones or the maybe the mustard ones they sell- style me boring. You always bring something fresh and new and you have inspired me to try so many unique pairings- thank you!
