Clothed with Grace: Stripe Dress, Take Two

Stripe Dress, Take Two

Whelp, I'm glad it's Friday.  That's for sure.  I had some sort of a weird bug this week and missed a day of school.  I'm very thankful to our Media Specialist who took over my classes, so I could go home and sleep for for next 18 or so hours.  Seriously, I did.  I'm feeling much better, but we've had a lot of kids absent from school too.  Although I love fall and the fact I get to wear my favorite new booties, I am not a fan of the germs and sickness that seem to come along with it too.

On a brighter note, I'm pretty excited about today's look. This dress is quickly becoming one of my favorite things in my closet.  I was also super excited when Target put this cardigan on sale for $15, then I had a $3 off coupon.  Score!  Last winter I found a great LOFT cardigan thrifted for only a few bucks, but it was really too big, so I was looking for a replacement and I'm pretty pleased with this option.  I really feel like I've learned a lot about shopping in this past year and am being more purposeful with my purchases and I find myself ultimately being happier with them too. My next big purchase will probably be brown leather riding boots (which would be amazing with this outfit, by the way).  I love these, now I just need to find the time to get into DSW to try them on and see if they fit my ridiculously large calves.

  9. I've worn almost the exact same outfit with brown riding boots and it is super cute. I do love it with your booties though! I'm hoping the weather starts cooling off soon so I can wear my layers, too.

  15. I love this! I'm pretty sure I have a similar outfit pinned but have no leopard print scarf (wha?! yeah, I know). Sorry to hear about your bug, it's good that you are feeling better.

  17. Leopard & Stripes look excellent together especially if the Stripes are Black+White. This Outfit is Chill yet so Elegant, beautiful for a Teacher.

    Ginny, I wish you a Fun Weekend and I hope you feel better. Those 18 hours of sleep have sure helped.
