Ok, so awhile back Andi had posted about doing a blog swap or collaboration. I thought it would be fun and we decided on a a trend and a post date. A few days later we realized we live in the same city. For real. I thought I was the only blogger in Nebraska, turns out I'm not. We're planning to get together soon and talk fashion and thrifting. Yay!
Now to our collaboration: It's no surprise I love stripes, if you follow my blog (or look in my closet) you'll see them everywhere. Andi at Just Another Smith loves stripes too, and we thought it'd be fun to show you a couple of our favorite stripped looks.
Make sure to check out Just Another Smith to get the details on Andi's super cute look!
As for my dress, I recently found this dress while visiting my sister in Kansas City. We ended up getting to go shopping while my husband stayed at my sister's house with my sleeping toddler. *Bliss* It's amazing how quickly I can shop when I'm on a mission. I'll tell you what, thrifting has really changed my take on shopping. My hands were so full with item's to try on my sister gave me quite the look. But, hey, you don't know if you'll like it until you try it on. Thrifting has definitely taught me not to trust the clothing's cuteness solely by hanger appeal. I did find way too many cute things and this dress was one of them. Loft had 35% off dresses and since I'm a teacher I got an extra 25% off, making this dress a super affordable $22. : ) I wore it to church like this with a cardigan but plan to wear it alone quite a bit this summer and change out the wedges for flip flops.
Dress: Loft $22
Belt: Kohl's $1.5
Necklace: Stella and Dot Jolie
Wedges: JCrew (circa 2007ish)
