outfit post: striped dress, brown wedge sandals

Inspiration - J.Crew

This is the cute striped ponte dress I mentioned in my shopping purchases post. I love that the material is heavy enough to hide flaws but breathable enough for a summer dress. I wore it to dinner & a movie with the Hubs this weekend. Easy casual summer date night. More work appropriate outfits with this dress to come! :)

  2. Hello! Super cute love this dress! When I saw it on your recent purchase list I went out to J. Crew and bought it that same day. I got it 60 % off and I got an additional 15% because I'm a teacher. I'll take the perks where I can get them! I haven't commented before, but I recently lost 60 pounds and I've had to replace my entire wardrobe. It definitely needed a revamp too. I'm good at copying style but not so god at piecing things together myself. Some of the things you post I think "man I have that in my closet and I would have never thought to piece that together!" In fact since I've started following your blog and using your advice and tips I've gotten so many compliments. One of my students said "Ms. Dahl! Your clothes are SO much cuter than before you lost weight." So thank you very much for your inspirations! :)

  3. I love this dress and a few others you have showcased recently, I know you said you were nursing, do you find any issues with wearing this type of dress when you have to nurse or pump?
    I had my second baby in April, so I haven't tried most of my old work clothes/dresses.

    1. This dress has a really long zipper down the back so I can wiggle out my top half to pump at work. The floral dress I've been wearing a lot lately is the same and the white dress I mentioned in my shopping post has buttons down the front. The dresses from my "old" wardrobe that I struggle with are those that are pullover or have zippers on the side.
