SINCERELY, C U R R E N T L Y | The Striped Dress That Inspired It All

Friday, August 30, 2019

SPOILER ALERT - THIS.IS.MY.FAVORITE.LOOK.OF.THIS.SERIES! When Ashley + I were in the brainstorming phase of SINCERELY, C U R R E N T L Y this was the shoot we were dreaming of. This Who.What.Wear Collection dress is an oldie, but oh so goodie! This round of the series is all about the striped dress that inspired it all!




THE STRIPED DRESS
A few things Ashley + I bond over {but aren't limited to}...
- 'gram worthy coffee shops
- 'gram worthy taco spots
- J U S T I N T I M B E R L A K E {aka sharing every.single.one.of.his.posts with each other on the 'gram}
- 'gram worthy dresses

This Who.What.Wear Collection dress is the piece that inspired this entire series. We realized last summer that we both were drawn to it + of course, bought it {among many other things from Target}. I love that we both ended up with the same OVER.THE.TOP piece. At the same time, it didn't surprise me because we both LIVE for the drama + playfulness that style can bring. Being BOLD is something that comes naturally for us in life + in personal style, so featuring this dress was a no brainer!

Why Ashley Loves The Striped Dress
"This dress checked every box for me. Shape? Yes. Ruffle? Yes. Stripes? Yes. Color? YES. I loved everything from the bold print to the simple, straight cut. She's a statement, but the fabric allows you to dress it down for a more low-key moment. Well, as low-key as you can get in a brightly colored stripe number."

Ashley is A DREAM in this dress, as always! I love her edgy vibes with adding a leather jacket + classic mules. Her statement earrings are a perfect addition + add a fresh element to her look. I'm definitely taking effortless, yet cool notes from Ashley {+ HIGHKEY styling mine this way for fall}.

Why I Love The Striped Dress
"When I saw this dress I immediately knew it was coming home with me! It's so obnoxious, yet chic. Minimal + maximal at the same time! I saw this dress + I saw ME at the same time. On a more serious tip, this dress reminds me to BE BOLD ALWAYS! Yes, everyone is looking at me. Yes, people might not get it or feel like it's TEW MUCH. But as long as I'm doing ME + feeling C O N F I D E N T that's all that matters! {That's a life + dress tip!}"

I've been rocking this dress for TWO SUMMERS + I get just as excited to wear it as the day I spotted it at Target. I usually style this piece with black ankle strap heels, but decided to kick it more casual this time around with my favorite platform sneakers. {I'm 5'2" + need as much height as I can get!} Since this dress is more of a shift style, I always add a belt {this one is from another Who What Wear Collection dress that I own} to cinch in the waist.


If you needed a reminder to take the BOLD lane, this is it! Oh + when you see a piece that may be out {or completely in} your comfort zone, try it on! You may be surprised by how you feel. 

As always, if there's a piece you'd like to see us style in the fall/winter months, holla at ya girls in the comments or DM us via our shared Instagram account - @sincerelycurrently!
