Say hello to one of my new favorite pieces in my closet- this little striped dress. I wore this to work with a cardigan on Wednesday and all day long I felt like I was hiding a fun secret- the cutout in the back! Many days I like to just throw on a dress and call it a day and it’s details like the bright red piping and the peekaboo cutout in the back that make this dress anything but boring.

I’d love to add more summery pieces like this dress to my wardrobe. But, I’m trying to save money for a trip a little later in the year, so I need to be careful with my spending. Gahhh, such a dilemma– clothes or travel?!

Outfit Details: Dress c/o Lulu’s // Sunglasses- H&M // Shoes- Lucky Brand via TJ Maxx // Turquoise Ring- Forever 21 // Lips- Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids On Fire Red (all photos of me taken by my friend Babe- thanks lady!)

  • Ha! We both got new peek-a-boo pieces! Love the dress on you :)

    • Thank you Jenmarie :)

    O this dress is adorable. I love that the cutout on the back in a little lower so it’s something that you can get away with wearing at an office that has a laid back atmosphere…or at least in my office lol


    • Thank you Heather! Yes, I love where this cutout is placed- I don’t have to worry about bra issues and I can get away with it in my office too :)

  • That is hard, because as soon as you do plan a trip, you will feel like you have NOTHING to pack for what ever destination it may be and you will want to shop even more.

    That is a great dress, the red piping is so awesome.

    • Yes, exactly, you totally get me Lydia :) Thank you!

  • Nothing like a little secret to liven up the workday! I love a good striped dress – the red piping makes it even cuter. :)

    • Thank you Carrie- I too can’t resist anything striped!

  • I love the back…very summer friendly. The dress would also be perfect for the 4th of July if you paired it with blue flats or sandals!

    • Yes, great ideas- thank you for the suggestions! :)

  • Madeline Veloria
