Today, I am collaborating with the adorable Meg of Everyday Meg. She is a teacher by day and a fabulous blogger by night! Her blog includes three major categories: SNAP (her photography business), SPARKLE (her classic, but fresh fashion perspective), and SAVOR (recipes, quotes and scripture to spice up your life!). If you have not already met her, be sure to stop by her blog and see what she's all about! You won't regret it :)

We became friends via IG and noticed that we both own (and LOVE!!) this J.Crew Factory striped dress. This dress is a classic...I love the shape, the bold stripes, and the fact that it's machine washable. I will be the first to admit that some patient interactions can be gross, and because of that, I appreciate clothes that do not require extensive maintenance! Because I am a big believer in print mixing, I layered my leopard shirt underneath, piled on the pearls, and tucked my tootsies into my favorite pair of boots.

Also, do not be afraid to pair black and brown! The tiny bit of brown in the shirt opens the door for more brown tones in the boots and accessories. Do you pair these two neutrals together? What is your favorite way to layer?

Thanks for reading! Be sure to check out Everyday Meg, and to follow WCW via Bloglovin'!

  18. I ordered this dress and it's gorgeous. Absolutely beautiful. In any shop you'd pay a huge amount for this dress. I am so pleased with the dress and I don't regret buying online at all.
