The Perfect Summer Dress

I think I may have found my go-to summer look with this outfit. It’s effortless, and it features stripes. It may just be the perfect summer dress.




Wearing: Madewell dress (old, similar here) | Target wedges | Street Level tote (oh, and I’m in love with this striped tote) | Ray-Ban aviators | David Yurman bracelet | Tory Burch earrings

While this Madewell dress is old and no longer available, this Old Navy striped dress is almost identical, and comes in at a great price. If you’re looking to add some dresses into your summer wardrobe, I’d recommend giving this one a try. I’ve also shared some other great striped dresses below. Shop your heart out!

On another note, this reversible tote is still available at Nordstrom (even though the widget says otherwise) and now comes in new colors. Love the navy pictured below.

Have a great week!

    Striped dresses are such an easy thing to have in your wardrobe for a day when you just don't know what to wear. So why do I not own one?! Need to get a striped dress 🙂 Love the bag 🙂

    Great tote! Camel leather totes are so perfect for this time of the year- from Farmer's Market trips to road trips they totally come in handy!

    You can never go wrong with stripes – they're like a basic that isn't basic. They are a great base for so many options, from layers to accessories. You can do so much with this dress. Very cute.

      I couldn't agree more. And I love that – a basic that isn't basic. Thanks for reading!
