Affordable Linen Striped Dress

How is it already Thursday? I’m sure you could guess that this week has been busy given the lack of post yesterday. I’m hoping to come up for air this weekend and get all my ducks in a row when it comes to next week’s posts. For now though, I have a fun and affordable dress to share with y’all! 

Have you ever been somewhere and seen someone wearing something that you almost purchased and immediately regretted not buying it when you saw it? That was how I felt when a lady walked into a coffee shop I was getting work done at wearing this dress. I had seen it on Old Navy’s website and was intrigued, but it wasn’t until I saw it in person that I realized it really was as good a find as I initially thought. It didn’t take me long after arriving home from that coffee shop to order it, and now it has become a work and weekend outfit staple. 

I love dresses that are lightweight and easy to throw on but always fear that they are going to be see-through or too short. Old Navy has a “tall” option in many of their products, and while I often opt for that I didn’t on this dress and was really impressed by the length (I’m 5’7” for reference). After taking the dress out of its package, I was also able to negate my fear of it being see through since the printed linen material is structured and also lined with a slip. Since buying this dress, I saw that Old Navy came out with it in a few other prints that I’ve included below for y’all to look through.

Had the blue and white stripe option been around when I purchased the multicolored stripe one I bought I probably would’ve gotten it too, but we all know that closet does not need any more blue and white. So far I’ve stuck to wearing this with sandals, but a casual pair of wedges could easily dress it up a bit and was how the lady in the coffee shop was wearing it.

Doesn't it look like it should be much pricier from some place like Madewell? Fortunately it's not and it is currently in stock in most sizes which likely won't last long! I'd love to know where you find your favorite summer dresses so that I can prepare before the weather becomes brutally hot.
