Seeing Stripes

Las Vegas is one hot city…like really hot. And when I know I’m traveling to a city with warmer weather, I always make sure to pack a maxi dress. They’re easy to pack and easy to dress up and down. Very versatile. And thanks to Torrid, I was able to take this Blue and White Mitered Striped Maxi ($54.50) dress with me to Sin City.

I wore this dress out to lunch and it was really comfortable. As you can tell, it does show a little cleavage. So, you might want to add a tank underneath if you don’t want to show as much. But, you should know the back is almost as low as the front of the dress. My bra strap kept showing. A low back bra would have helped. And I don’t know if you can tell, but there is a silver stitching that goes along with the stripes.

My favorite part of the dress is the length. I can’t stand a short maxi dress! I’m 5’6 and it barely skimmed the floor while wearing sandals. I know this maxi is going to get a lot of wear out of it! My necklace is Juicy Couture and it’s on sale now!

    I love stripes and dresses! Looks great on you Monique!


      Thank you darling! 🙂

  • I loved seeing you in stripes. I clicked through today because you’re wearing stripes. I’m about to get all frocked up in my stripes and take some pics. I’m part of an Aussie Curves challenge and this Monday’s theme is stripes. I had to go buy something stripy as I didn’t own any. Now I have an awesome $20 skirt in black and white. Very similar to your dress, but just the skirt part. I’m also finding it really comfy to wear. Wahoo that’s a plus! Great outfit, love your dress in the blue and white, very fresh looking.


      Thank you so much Jeanie!! Stripes are so fun and anyone can wear them!
