My Style Diary - Stripes

You really can't beat a stripe-y shirt dress when it's a hot day and you're having to rush out the door.

This particular one is from Marcs and was picked up in an end of summer sale last year. 

When I first bought it, I envisioned pairing it with a tan belt and sandals, but seeing as I'm still on the hunt for the perfect tan sandals, we're going with these black ones for now.

It's the kind of dress that is perfect to throw on when you just want to be comfy. I would love to be able to wear it without a belt, but for me it's just a little too boxy and long, so I like to try and give the illusion of no belt by wearing just a thin one and pulling the top part of the dress out a bit to cover it

(this is not demonstrated very well in the above photo, but I'm sure you know what I mean).

My friend who has the same dress does wear it on it's own and it looks great on her - I'm just that little bit too short!

Anyway, enough rambling!

Hope you're having a great day!
