Lookbook: Stripes and Dots

Hi lovelies!! I’m back from Cabo a little more tan and a lot more relaxed! Thanks so much to my guest bloggers, you guys are the best! So back to business for me, including a regular ol’ lookbook. Will upload Cabo pics and share our trip with you all soon!

This little outfit looks like I’m wearing a skirt + top but it’s actually a dress and for that I love it. It’s pretty much effortless! It’s short sleeves and I can’t wear short sleeves to work (they always crank the AC) so I grabbed a stripey cardigan to keep me warm.

What I’m Wearing:
Dress: label unknown (from Nordstrom Rack)
Cardigan: Express
Tights: Nordstrom
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

A few years ago, I was really into tights with prints on them so I got these ones with polka dots and I just rediscovered them. I thought it was fun to mix the stripes + dots without it being too obvious.


I pulled my hair into an easy side ponytail, and makeup was a dark purple eye with a light pink lip.


Cute and perfect for work, but if I took off the cardigan and added some fun bangles, it would be perfect to wear out to dinner and drinks as well. Gotta love versatile pieces.

Also while I was away talkingshopping.com did a little feature on me, so head on over there to check out another one of my looks!

    I’m just about to graduate and head off to the ‘real’ world where i find most clothes to be REAL boring! I love this look you just posted! How do you create looks for the office that are young but still professional, I’m afraid I won’t be taken seriously sometimes!
