Early Spring | Stripes & Tassels

Today’s outfit in the {5 Ways} Early Spring series is one I’ve reached for year after year. Of course, I love the stripe and tassel combo, but the neutral shoes and bag keep the look classic, and it works for any number of occasions. The dress is so versatile I could style an entire {5 Ways} around it, but I paired it with a utility vest for today’s timeless look.

Fun necklaces add so much to an otherwise basic or neutral outfit, and this one was in constant rotation for me last Spring and Summer. Often times I swap the sandals for these sneakers, and the vest for this jean jacket, and it’s a great weekend look.

What’s been your favorite look so far this week? I hope I’ve got you excited for Spring and the fun outfits that lie ahead! I’m wrapping up the series tomorrow with my laid-back weekend uniform, staring my favorite sneakers.

    My favorites were “Ruffles and Red” and “Blue and White”. I’ve always kept my shoes and bags very neutral, but in both of those posts, the pops of color made the look. I loved the red bag and the pink flats. Hmmm… I think you’ve inspired me to add some colorful bags and shoes to my wardrobe!

  5. Love how you’ve styled this striped dress with a utility vest! Very cute. Love that necklace too. I’ll have to watch and see if it comes back in stock. It’s tough to pick a favorite- I’m so ready for spring, and I love them all!

    I love this look. I have the same dress from Old Navy. I am on a STOP for Nordstrom after their treatment to Ivanka, who by the way had HUGE sales numbers last month. I refuse to buy from them. Please use other stores more. Thanks

      Mine is from J.Crew Factory last year…that Old Navy one was too short for me. :/ I’ll continue to share items I love from a variety of retailers! xo

    I can’t get this necklace off my mind- I’ve tried to find one in stores and can’t!! I may have to get this one online before it’s too late! Love your site, style, voice, and humor.
