Denim Jacket + Striped Dress

Today I am sharing again from a small business – The Market Boutique! I am featuring their short-sleeved Harper Striped Dress in Taupe and Red. With the cooler winter/spring temperatures that are often still surrounding us, I decided to layer the dress with a light-wash denim jacket. I wore my favorite OTK boots, too, and it brought out the taupe color in the dress. This dress is quite a bit shorter in the front, so my OTK boots worked fabulous! It has a high-low hem, with a blousing detail on the back of the dress between the shoulders (seen in the website photos here).

Swing dresses have to be the most flattering dresses out there. They are comfortable and roomy, yet girly and flattering. This fits all body types! The burgundy and maroon hues are so trendy right now, so imagine my excitement when I found a swing dress in this beautiful color! I paired my swing dress with a Le Boutique Shop blanket scarf. There are numerous colors to choose from on this boutique’s site – so go take a look! If you are considering shopping around on Small Business Saturday this weekend (following the Black Friday madness), consider shopping with Le Boutique Shop. The owner is a former teacher, and such a kind, sincere person. I have had the privilege of knowing her through Instagram for almost 2 … Read More
