The worst part of summertime is having to trade my favorite jeans for cooler fabrics. I hate wearing shorts, so dressing for the heat is often a struggle. This summer I’m taking advantage of the dozens of dresses in my closet by styling them for everyday use. I love this striped Old Navy dress because it’s a classic piece that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. I love wearing it with my favorite nude flats from Old Navy and a few black accessories. Pairing high end and affordable pieces is an excellent way to create attainable style on a budget! My Rebecca Minkoff bag and Daniel Wellington watch are on the more expensive end while the Old Navy dress and shoes are under $30 each. I can’t wait to style more comfortable and classic looks throughout the summer.
