Striped Maxi

Monday, August 17, 2015










Dress: c/o Choies (under $20)
Hat: David & Young
Sandals: Old Navy (old), similar here
This weekend was really hot. While everyone was complaining about the heat, I was embracing it. It's already mid-August which means Summer may be over soon (although, I really do hope it will last a tad bit longer). To cool off from the high temps, I decided to wear this striped, backless maxi dress. I think this is one of my favorite dresses of the summer. I love the black and white stripes (such a classic pattern!), and it is so comfortable! Even though the silhouette is form-fitting, it surprisingly has a flow to it. Not sure if you can tell from the photos, when the wind blows, it flows just like a chiffon dress. I think it has to do with the side slit. The slit is high enough to feel very feminine but still modest. Hope you all have a great Monday!

  17. Really cute maxi. I love the thin whale stripes and the open v-back. As well, the side splits are still on trend. Great casual piece to have.

  24. I try my hardest o never complain about the heat. As much as I love fall and can't wait for booties and scarves, I hate what comes next. All that dreaded snow. Being from Chicago I know you totally understand what it's like to literally have snow up to your knees!

    Love the plunged back of your dress! (:
