the every day dress

When it comes to casual style, I am the biggest supporter of the every day dress. Why? Because while it looks so put together (even more-so than jeans and a blouse, in my opinion), it is just about the most comfortable style out there. Cute + comfortable = killing two birds with one stone, y’all. That’s how I like to do it!

DRESS   navy striped t-shirt dress (wearing size XS)   |   BUTTON DOWN   green gingham button down   |   NECKLACE   block monogram necklace (size L)   |   BAG   leopard crossbody   |   SHOES   adidas superstar  sneakers   |   EARRINGS   pearl studs   |   LIP COLOR   mod pink

I wore this striped every day dress all summer – most notably, on my latest excursion to Paris! (You’ll find it in my Paris style guide.) Not only was it perfect for long days on-foot in the city, it’s proved to be the perfect transition piece to the Texas version of “fall” as well!

To switch up the look and add a bit more of an autumn feel, I wrapped a new hunter green gingham button down around the waist. Topping it all off with white sneaks and a pop of leopard (seriously, how cute is this leopard bag?!) made for a street-chic look that, no lie, I wore three days in a row last week.

And I’m not mad about it.

As the weather continues to cool off, I look forward to seasoning this dress yet again with riding boots and a warm cardigan and blanket scarf. This is truly the definition of a “staple piece,” friends!

Love from Texas,

    Oh my gosh, these photos are precious. That dress not only looks more put together than jeans and a blouse, but also so much more comfortable. Loved the pairing – I have a similar dress and will definitely be taking inspiration from this post about how to wear it :)
