Striped Dress + Jean Jacket

One of the best things about this period between Spring and Summer is the cool temperatures. It’s not so hot that you’re sweating bullets, but it’s not too cold that you have to wear layers upon layers! A casual jean jacket over a shift dress is the perfect transition look for this in between period.

Striped Dress + Jean Jacket - Pearls and Polkadots




Dress: Old Navy (similar here and here) / Jean Jacket: H&M (similar here) / Statement Necklace: mark. by Avon (similar here) / Sneakers: City Sneaks (similar here and here) / Heels: Aldo

Pairing a shift dress with a jean jacket is the perfect look for any casual occasion. I like sporting this for a fun Saturday running errands, or even a get together with friends! What I did with this look specifically is alter it by switching out the shoes\.

Canvas sneakers take the look down a notch and although some may think sneakers and dresses don’t pair well together…I think this is a particularly good looking ensemble! This outfit would work well with any footwear really. My friend wore some Vessi footwear with a similar outfit and she looked great! Taking this look up a level, add a fun and bright pair of heels! It escalates the look and takes it from running errands to party hardy!

Pearls and Polkadots is in for a few changes coming up, so make sure you come back at the end of this week to read about the changes and a fun announcement!
