Striped Dress, old | H&M Lace top, old | H&M Pink Crossbody, old | Old Navy heels, old | East & Linbrooke Earrings c/o

Today's outfit started with these East & Linbrook earrings.  The fun color combo of the Cotton Candy Earrings can bring a boring outfit to life.  Not that black and white stripes are boring!  I had to do something with this dress because it's a tad big up top.  Right now it's too hot to layer with an oversized sweater (my favorite!) so I figured this lace top would be a perfect alternative.  Adding the skinny belt added some visual interest, and I had sandals in a matching color.  It was fun to add on the hot pink bag, and really, who doesn't love a pink and green combo?

So this dress and top pairing was an experiment and I really liked the way it ended up.  I think a sheer top works best, but it would be fun to play around with different colors and prints.  If you want a dress that gives you the same look, check out this East & Linbrooke dress that I found.  So cute!

I had to share one last photo from a meeting I had earlier today!  This pup is training to be a service dog for a child with disabilities and we've just fallen in love with him at work!  We'll be hosting an event later this year to raise money for the organization training him!  This is definitely one of my favorite parts of the job.
