Striped Midi Dress: c/o Fancy Frills Boutique ($37.99)
Straw Crossbody Bag: Amazon ($19)
Lace-Up Sandals: Nordstrom Rack (old), similar here
Panama Hat: Sole Society
Sunglasses: c/o Zenni Optical

Summer is in full gear and you bet I will take advantage of wearing summer dresses nonstop. After all, Chicago only gets 3 maybe 4 months of summer weather. Which means this is the only time of the year when I can wear dresses comfortably.

To kick off this summer season, I will be wearing this striped midi dress from Fancy Frills Boutique.  My love for stripes is strong so I knew my wardrobe would not be complete without owning a striped dress. I easily fell in love with this dress because of its fit and flare style. I love that it can be worn in a casual setting or dressed up. I decided for this post to combine a dressy, casual look.  The lace-up sandals dresses it up while the straw bag and panama hat gives it a beachy vibe to keep it casual.


But if I really want this striped midi dress to be casual for the summer, I would pair it with strappy leather sandals. To dress it up like for a bridal shower or baby shower or any occasion, I would pair it with d’orsay heels or wrap around heels. Without a doubt, I will be wearing this dress on repeat this season.

  7. You look SO darling!
    I love this dress!! It's such a bummer that we only get a few months of warmth before busting out the sweaters. Lol. I'm not loving this cooler start to summer. I see the forecast says we're looking at June nights in the 50s for at least the next week or so... boooooo!!!! Ha ha!!

    At least our daytime weather is GORGEOUS! Like you!
