A Pastel OOTD | Stripes and Everything Nice

I know fall is around the corner, but there’s still just a little bit of summer left! Who doesn’t love pastels for the summer time?! I have been loving easy flowy dresses for summer because it is WAY too hot in Florida for all that extra fabric.

This dress is from Torrid’s summer/spring collection. It’s one of my favorites because of how simple it is! It’s no longer available, but It’s one to talk about!

Stripes were always something I had avoided wearing growing up. Ever since starting to blog, I decided I wanted to branch out and get out of my comfort zone. Yes this dress is super cute, but 4 years ago, I would’ve stayed far away from it because of stripes! I just stopped being afraid of how I would look and decided to worry about how I felt in the outfit!

This dress is perfect on it’s own or dressed up with accesories to knock it out of the park! I kept it simple with a few bracelets and pink strap sandals to match the pink in the dress.

I styled the outfit with one of my favorite accessories of the summer – a boater hat! I love how it can just take a basic look and elevate it!

I know this is outfit would be out of my comfort zone if it was 5 years ago, but 5 years later, this is my go-to style for summer.

I hope this blog inspired you to find those clothing items that you’ve always wanted to try and just try it out!
