Striped Dresses Week: Peppermint Striped Dress from Summer to Fall.

It dragged a little bit but the Striped Dress week is coming to an end with my Peppermint Striped Fit+Flare Dress. I happen to love this Cute, Girly Dress. I wore it once more this Summer. However (as you will see from the collage below), I have transitioned this Dress into Fall, before. The Outfit where I layered the White Blouse underneath it and added the Deep Red Silk Scarf which I tied into a Bow, is from last Fall.
This Flirty Dress makes a statement (I think) on its own. So, for a late Summer day I let the dress be the main dish and added little extras as side dishes. I layered 2 Dainty Real Gold Heart Necklaces, a few Dainty Real Gold Bracelets and added more Stripes through my Shoes. These Peep-Toe Ballet Flats are cute, comfy and a very on-trend item. They have zebra brown+ivory stripes. Miss Vivian matched me in her own adorable Peppermint-Striped Dress and yes the matching was done on purpose (this time lol). I can see this Dress work for the Holiday season too. For a Holiday Party I would wear it with Sheer Black Polka Dot Tights, Red Pumps, a Sequined Black Blazer and a Colorful Statement Necklace (all items I own). I can see it being cute for a Holiday event, what do you think? And, do you like how I transitioned it for Fall by layering a white shirt underneath and tying a scarf into a bow over it?

Necklaces:
Real Gold Dainty Necklace w/ Asymmetric Diamond+Ruby Open Heart: Lord & Taylor (Gifted from my Husband) (very similar in silver, Splurge, love this), (similar in gold by JC Penney, my favorite), (similar by Kohl's in 18k gold, great deal), (similar in gold by JC Penney, best deal, love this).

It is funny because as a baby, Vivian very rarely liked or kept her pacifier(s) on. She was never a pacifier baby (maybe because she was mainly breast-fed as an infant). Once she started teething badly after turning one, she would like them every now and then to sort of bite into them and they helped her ease the pain of teething. Then, we kept a couple in one of her boxes of toys and she used them for her dolls, but sometimes she likes to keep them on her mouth. These occasions are rare but yeah, this was one of those hours where she loved playing with her pacifier.
Bracelets:
Sterling Silver Tennis Bracelet w/ Light Green Sapphire Stones + little Diamonds: JC Penney's (similar, fine jewelry option, Splurge, my favorite), (similar, great deal), (similar w/ blue topaz stones & diamond accents, best deal, love this).
Real Gold Dainty Bracelet with "Vivian" Name Tab: Special-Ordered (Vivian has an identical one).

Real Gold Dainty Necklace w/ Asymmetric Diamond+Ruby Open Heart: Lord & Taylor (Gifted from my Husband) (very similar in silver, Splurge, love this), (similar in gold by JC Penney, my favorite), (similar by Kohl's in 18k gold, great deal), (similar in gold by JC Penney, best deal, love this).
Sterling Silver Tennis Bracelet w/ Light Green Sapphire Stones + little Diamonds: JC Penney's (similar, fine jewelry option, Splurge, my favorite), (similar, great deal), (similar w/ blue topaz stones & diamond accents, best deal, love this).

Silver, Oval-Shaped Pave Ring w/ Small Emerald Stone: A Local Boutique similar, Splurge, my favorite), (similar), (similar by JC Penney's, love this).
Silver, Square-Shaped Pave Ring w/ Large Lavender Topaz Stone: Gift from My Mom (very similar by David Yurman, Splurge, my favorite), (similar, great deal), (gorgeous pear-shaped option, best deal, love this).

Vivian's Outfit:
Red+Dress Striped Sun-Dress w/ Ruffled Skirt: Gift from My Friend.
Coral Pave Chevron Barrette: An Accessories Boutique in Albania.
Baby Pink Strappy Sandals: Happy Kids.


And here are the details of my Fall Outfit from last year.

  19. Hard to say which look I prefer. Possibly the first one as I love how you've combined a pink belt with the green - an unusual colour combination. You and Vivian look so cute together!
