Layered Stripe Midi Dress

Dress | Shoes | Earrings (Similar) | Ring (similar)

Happy Monday! So I am not totally convinced of the midi dress trend. I live in limbo of being short and tall so I’m right in the middle. Plus I have short stubby legs, and a really long torso. I have been kind of afraid of the midi dresses, and tend to just steer clear to avoid chopping myself off and making me look shorter.

However, this dress is so pretty that I decided to take a chance. I love the different layers and vertical stripes. I feel like a bit of a nautical cupcake when I wear it. I think that the layers help aide my concern of being chopped off too short, and the stripes lengthen my limbs.

I paired it with some pretty sandals to dress it down a little, a large red cocktail ring, and pretty navy drop earrings. I thought this dress was navy and white all day today, but looking at the website, I believe it is black…whoops. I am not a fan of the “blavy” aka mixing black and navy, so this happened on accident, but we will run with it.

On another note, I did my roots this weekend so my hair is glowing a little outside. I love having fresh color even though I am really blonde right now. What about you?? Also, I have been living and dying by LipSense. I put it on this morning to take photos, then ran errands, and played a double header in kickball and it was still on.

Have you jumped on board with the midi dress trend? While I love this dress, I’m still on the fence about the trend as a whole. Let me know if you have found a midi dress you just love and send me a link!

    What an adorable dress! I don’t like my short stubby legs either–so I’m thinking this might be a good choice for me 🙂

    • Haha! I hate mine. I’m always trying to find ways to make them look longer.

  • So pretty!!

  • This dress is gorgeous! You look beautiful! I’m fairly tall, so I tend to lean toward midi dresses since others can be super short on me.

  • I’ve been on the fence about the midi length dress too but this is such a cute one! I totally agree that the layers and the stripes helps to not cut off anywhere in an awkward place. Rock it girl!

    I love stripes. I’m too short for that length but it looks great on you.
