Dress or Pants? Um…BOTH!

I know that dresses over pants are kind of a thing but I can’t get 100% behind it just yet (maybe because I get flashbacks of hippies I went to art school with who took this look to a whole other level). I modified the look here by layering my dress over leggings, and tying everything together with my favorite striped cardi.

Cardi: J. Crew; Dress: Cynthia Rowley; Loafers: Rampage; Bracelet: Bauble Bar; Ring: H&M; Necklace: Grandma’s.

I feel like this didn’t photograph very well. The skirt looks stiffer than it actually was and the the stripes aren’t quite lining up right in the photo. But trust me, it was super cute. Silver loafers provided a pop of bright metallic, so I kept the rest of my jewelry very simple and gold.

Are you guys into the dresses over pants trend?
