Hey all! Jana here from Small Town, BIG SMILE! Long time no see! It seems like it's been forever since I've posted over here... and with good reason. August and September were b.u.s.y. months for me! So let's hope this post is a good start to a great autumn-blogging season! In today's post, I'm wearing this great black and white striped dress from Taylor. Funny story: I borrowed this dress thinking it was navy and white striped, and planned on wearing it with red tights! It was actually one of the first dresses I borrowed. When it arrived, to my surprise, it was black, not navy! I was still tempted to style it with the red tights, but it wouldn't have had the nautical style I was originally intending to sport. Not only that, the week I had this dress, the weather was HOT! So tights just weren't an option.
Instead of the tights, I opted for some red accessories, and my big floppy hat with black under-lining, turning my original nautical planned outfit into a more classic style. In the end, I loved how the outfit turned out, but I have to admit, if I had it again during the chillier months that are now approaching, I'd love to remix it with some bright tights like Taylor did!
Check out how Taylor styled it!
