Pinterest Told Me to... Stripes with a Statement Necklace

Let's be honest. If Pinterest had a dress code, it'd be stripes with a statement necklace. If you flip through the Women's Fashion section, you know it's true. At least 1/4 of the pins involve one of these two. (Other runners up would include plaid, Hunter Wellies, and aviators.) Thus, when I saw this pin... I wasn't really all that surprised. I mean, it's nothing new. Actually, it's pretty basic. But it spoke to me, so I pinned it. 

Then the other night, as I was walking through Target, I found this dress. And I had to have it. I loved the fit, the stripes, the fabric. The dress was made for me. But it was also -10 degrees outside, so I was having trouble rationalizing the purchase of a spring dress. That's when the lightbulb went off & I remembered my pin! Into the cart it went... and the next morning, this happened. 

dress - Target // shirt - J.Crew // necklace & tights - LOFT
boots - Steve Madden // watch - Coach 

I feel like I hit the nail on the head with this one without even really trying... 

I got a lot of compliments at work too. So many people loved that I could wear it now & wear it in the spring too! Teachers just love versatility. And one of my good friends had to check my tag because she didn't believe that my dress was from Target. She was convinced I bought it at J.Crew... which probably wouldn't surprise anyone either. 

And a close up on my necklace, which is 40% off at LOFT this weekend!
