Statement Stripes

plus size stripe dress outfit idea summer

Stripes have been super trendy this season and, while I generally avoid being too trendy, I couldn’t resist this fantastic striped high/lo skirt from Nordstrom Rack… after all black and white (even if striped) is always stylish and chic.

Lately, I have been obsessed with wearing all of my longer skirts as dresses (like I’ve done in here). This one is a little shorter than I would usually wear, but I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and rock it anyway.

Side note: How much are we loving these Tory Burch ‘Torben’ sandals?  I got them half off at Nordstrom Rack! ::sigh:: It was definitely love at first sight.

Have any of you added stripes to your wardrobe this season?

Thanks for reading!
