I got this dress while I was in San Diego last July. The pastel/cotton candy colored stripes remind me of summertime & carnivals. It brings some sunshine to this winter, so even though it's sleeveless, I still wanted to be able to wear it & put a different spin on it. So I decided to wear it with a comfy sweater, these merlot tights & cozy boots. The sweater & boots make this feminine dress & braided updo a bit more boyish, which balances the outfit out for me.
I tried something new with my hair using this hair tutorial from TBD. It was easy to get going, but I totally suggest you have a double mirror set up (which I didn't) or someone help you in order to see where you're pinning up the braids to tuck in the ends. This came out
a bit way messy but, it was fun to do & it felt whimsical! That's what matters, right? Haha.
