Striped Dress + Gingham Sneakers

I’m already in that weekend state of mind! After barely moving from my desk chair for a few days straight, I’m planning on ducking out early this afternoon and heading to a patio somewhere to get the weekend started. I wore this dress and sneakers combo a few weekends ago on a sunny Saturday and it perfect for an afternoon of day drinking and street fest hopping with friends. Cute, casual, comfortable… Check, check, check.

Back at it with these gingham sneakers, too! (You can see how I wore them last in this post.)

Nothing elevates your dirty hair like a chic little hair bow! I’ve picked up so many of these this summer… I hate wearing my hair up, but when it’s a necessity, at least these look cute.

I styled this dress on the blog last summer and sadly, it’s no longer available. But I found a few similar options that I’ve linked to below! You can’t go wrong with a rugby striped dress in the summertime.
