Outfit: Stripes + Bows

Gap Dress // gifted Rebecca Minkoff Bag // DIY Necklace

Chanel Sunglasses // gifted The Ropes Maine Bracelets // Carven Flats

I have a really hard time saying no to a good striped dress and snapped up this one last weekend at the Gap.  It’s been a long time since I last shopped the Gap but I was pleasantly surprised by how many things I loved.  (I also picked up this.)  The fabric on the dress is thick which makes it extra flattering, and I love the zipper detail at the shoulder.  I might go back and get it in every color.  The shoes were a splurge.  I pretty much haven’t taken them off since buying them.  And the necklace… well, that was last week’s DIY!  Inspired by Eddie Borgo and just too easy to make.

    I was pleasantly surpised with Gap recently too.  I saw this exact dress and the weight of the fabric is great.  Love your little bow flats too!   You always look so cute!
