Beginning a Week of Stripes in Dresses and Skirts

Posted on: June 9, 2013

This week is the final week of school for my seventeen year old and the last chance to have a quiet home to do the end of year tesing required for my homeschooling 13 year old… So, I need an easy dressing week and thought after My Lucky Finds post featuring several Striped pieces that I would start there… Oh and how about heading over to Refashion Runway for the first week challenge which was Stripes… I also felt very inspired by a post on 40 Plus Style on dresses and the week long dress challenge on You LOOk Fab forum last week.  So, I married those two inspirations together and will be featuring a week of Stripes in Dresses and Skirts!  

So proud of myself for thinking of this way to make the week easier… Remember it’s Visible Monday, so go see the wonderful bloggers at Not Dead Yet Style!

I showed this dress once before on my vacation with the scarf part of the dress worn over my shoulders… this time I chose a strapless version…

This look definitely will be repeated for a concert at the beach night.. And later I’ll show it as a skirt…

And just for fun, I thought I showed the volume, that I love in dresses that swish when I walk and make my happiness factor soar… wondering if I can expand this with a jean jacket and boots to carry it over to colder seasons???

Dear Readers, Well this is just the first of my striped looks for the week, I hope you will come back and see what’s next.  Do you like stripes?  Do you wear them as dresses or skirts , prefer them in tops or both options???  I could start sounding like a Dr. Suess rhyme and say all the ways I like them, but will spare you my silliness.

Gratitude

I am grateful for my vacation trip in February  and my one fashion purchase of this dress…

I am grateful to my husband for teking these photos.

I am grateful to my son’s for ptiching in and putting their sweaters and sweatshirts in spacebags and getting them out of the way.

I am grateful for Sunshine and lazy Sundays!  

I am grateful for leftovers and a night off from cooking.

Cute dress and I really love your gratitude list!! It helps to write all of them down sometimes…life is short, so enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I love ending my posts daily with gratitude as it is a great time to pause and reflect.

I see these infinity dresses a lot now but they aren’t as pretty as yours. It’s smart to have one beautiful piece that can be worn multiple ways and the stripes really suit you!

thank you, I agree that this one is special with the stripes! so glad I found it on vacation…

Great dress, and I love that you can style is several ways – the stripes are the best part! Thanks for sharing with Vis Monday.

Gratitude is simply appreciating the little things folks do for us. The dress is dazzling and I love the way it ties over the chest. Nice.

Gratitude to me is also appreciating the blessings in our lives, the precious moments shared with others and something as simple as sunshine after several rainy days…Thanks for commenting.

Great dress! I think it’ll look good even on its own.. tuning in to see more!

thanks for commenting and yes this dress has enough punch to stand on it’s own!

Love that dress on you! No, I don’t currently wear dresses. I can’t stand how they look on me right now. But before I did once in a while wear them.

Keep working hard and you may find yourself in a whole new style direction… I switched to skirts, no dresses when I was heavier….

Oh, yes, I’d think you could find a way to carry it through winter … perhaps with boots and a big knit sweater, or as you say, a denim jacket, and perhaps a scarf.
Looks sweet now … will be interested to see the rest of your stripes!
