In one of my recent SheIn orders, I grabbed this adorable striped OTS dress that’s so lightweight it can double as a bathing suit cover-up for a pool or beach day! I love the light colors, and how the vertical stripes make me look longer and leaner just by tricking the eye. The off-the-shoulder style with ruffle layered sleeves makes it perfectly fashion forward for a babes brunch date too!
When James and I went to Naples last month, I wore this out exploring the city with him. I styled it in a slightly beachy way with loose waves in my hair and an Panama hat. The dress is a little short on me and I’m only 4’10”, so if you’re taller I’d suggest solely using it as a suit cover, or pairing it with skinny jeans for a cute tunic style. Other than the length I’d say the sizing runs very true to size, I got an XL in this for reference. Aside from that can we talk about the price?! $15!! How amazing is that?! For a dress with basically 3 different functions, that’s such a steal, and the quality on this piece is excellent.
Finishing off the look, I added my go-to Henri Bendel Crosby cross body bag, and some nice low-heel strappy Steve Madden sandals. We explored some areas like the Coconut Point Mall, where James’ BFF Wade owns a very nice salon, grabbed lunch at a juice bar, and did some shopping. It was such a fun trip, and the lightweight material of this dress kept me sweat-free while we walked all around in the summer heat.
While we were at Topsail Beach in NC on vacation, I used it as a suit cover for a day on the sand with the boys. While our hotel was on the beach, it was really nice to have something to throw on with flip-flops when we decided to leave the beach and walk straight to lunch. People stopped me a few times to compliment the dress, and I felt so cute, even with my post-baby bathing suit body!
