I originally bought this little striped dress to wear as a top with maxi skirts, but the other day I was in Roanoke and hadn't packed enough clothes, so I threw one of my favorite tees on top of it and it ended up making a pretty great skirt. Now it's my favorite outfit!
I'm also still using this bag almost every single day. Rob got it for my birthday last year and it was perfect for fall, but I think the brightness of it has carried over well throughout the summer. The color was both what drew me to it and made me think twice about it, but I've loved the pop of color it has added to my otherwise mostly neutral outfits.
And don't worry, I have gotten a bang trim since these photos were taken.
