Dress: Jacob (c/o). Jacket: J.Crew. Handbag: Coach. Shoes: Nine West (US link)(Canadian link). Sunglasses: Gucci. Watch: Michael Kors (also available here). Rings: ASOS, Coach. Belt: Forever 21.

 

I think it’s pretty obvious that I’m a “dress” girl.  They make me feel extra girly and flatter my figure more often than pants.  I’m always on the hunt for daytime dresses that pull double duty and are dressy enough for work but casual enough to wear shopping or sightseeing on weekends.  This striped dress I found at Jacob is a perfect example of a “casual-dressy” dress.  It looks just as cute worn with heels or flats.

    I have an obsession with those types of versatile dresses and usually find my winners at Old Navy weirdly enough! Loving the yellow color of this dress – it looks fabulous on you!

      Thanks Annick! I definitely need to stop by Winner’s more often. I get a little overwhelmed with trying to fish through the racks but my friends always find fabulous things there! 🙂

    I love the dress! I will try to make an effort to visit Jacob. Is it cotton?
    I love the jewels you wear. We have very similar taste. Someone approach me recently because of what I was wearing and asked me to join Stella & Dot team. I love the line, so I’ve joined. It will be a new experience for me. 🙂

      Hi Christina, yes the dress is cotton. It’s very lightweight which is just perfect in the summer. I LOVE Stella & Dot too and just purchased a necklace last week that I can’t wait to get in the mail! Sounds like that will be such a fun experience. Good luck!!! 🙂

        Thank you! Whenever I wear Stella & Dot jewelry, it never fails that some would stop me to compliment 🙂

        Do you know when summer dresses would go on sale in stores?

        • Jenny

          Summer dresses are definitely on sale right NOW! Stores are already loading in their Fall merchandise, so now is definitely the time to stock up on summer pieces. 🙂

    I’m a “dress girl” too! Or skirts. I love stripes and especially these yellow stripes. Very pretty.

    • Jenny
      August 8, 2013

      Haha, yes, definitely skirts too! Thanks so much Lindsay!

    Love this look! I need to get a denim jacket to transition all of my summer dresses to fall!

      Thanks Christina! A denim jacket is definitely the most versatile piece for transitioning looks from season to season. Our summer here has been a little bit cooler than usual and I feel like I’ve been wearing my denim jacket almost every day! 🙂

    I love day dresses. I nearly always find one at Goodwill that I just HAVE to have!

    • Jenny
      August 8, 2013

      Haha, I feel the same way about dress. . . I just have to have them! 🙂

    I love that dress! It’s really pretty against the denim too!

    I’m a dress girl as well and am always on the hunt for ones like this in my wardrobe. Love the cut and yellow stripes!

      Thanks Lauren! Good luck with your search. I know it’s a difficult one! 🙂 LOL

    I’ve always wanted a striped yellow dress–I always think they’re so charming for some reason. This is gorgeous!

    • Jenny
      August 8, 2013

      Thanks Alyssa! Funny, when I saw this dress I actually wondered why I didn’t already own a striped yellow dress. It’s just so summery and cute. 🙂

    The dressy/casual dress look is PERFECT for summer. I love that I can wear them to work or a weekend BBQ or anything in between.

    • Jenny
      August 8, 2013

      Thanks Jenn! Yes, I totally agree, a BBQ is a perfect example of a casual event to wear this to. 🙂

    Love the color of these stripes!

      Thanks Tara! I could totally picture you in this dress too! 🙂

    Love! I once pondered challenging myself to wear dresses every day for a month, and I still might. They’re just so easy and feminine! Love this one on you!

    • Jenny
      August 8, 2013

      Hahaha, I would love to see you do that challenge! 🙂 Thanks so much Sam!

    I dug out an old Primark bag of my sisters today & now seeing your Coach bag it’s a very similar shape. Not sure if Primarni would rip off a US brand though… Maybe!

    • Jenny
      August 8, 2013

      Hahaha, I think there is so much “borrowing” of ideas in fashion now-a-days. The Willis bag is a classic Coach style that they launched 20 years ago (1993), so it’s a possibility. 🙂 Thanks Louise! 🙂

    I absolutely love denim everything. A crop jacket is almost my summer staple as it looks great pairing with almost anything under the sun. I love your pop of yellow coloured dress. To me, this is essential summer dressing in a colder climate like where you and I live 🙂

    • Jenny
      August 8, 2013

      Thank you so much!!! Yes, I completely agree, denim really works with anything and everything! 🙂

    Such a pretty & feminine dress! I love how the yellow makes the stripes really subtle too.

    Super pretty! This dress is such a flattering cut, style, and color for you. I can totally see how this dress would look great dressed up or down. And you always look fabulous in yellow!

    I’ve become more and more of a dress girl in the past couple years! I don’t know why it took me so long. I also don’t know why I don’t already have a yellow striped dress…

    I am def a dress/skirt gal more than pants too. I always have a tough time finding cuts that work for my body type. This is a great work/play dress. The color is so prefect for summer!
