On any given day, there's a pretty good chance that you'll find me wearing stripes. What can I say, they're a perennial favorite that never lets me down. A hero piece, if you will. (I have a feeling that I'm not the only who can attest to this.) While I especially have a soft spot for striped tops (don't we all?!), there's something to be said about a striped sweater dress that's both effortless and preppy at the same time. Naturally, when I spotted this navy + cream striped dress (surprisingly by BCBGMAXAZRIA), I knew that it deserved a spot in my closet. Not only does it look great on its own, but it makes for the perfect weekend look when paired alongside a field jacket and Chelsea boots. Although I foresee endless outfit possibilities on the horizon, this go-around, I kept it simple by styling my dress with a tassel necklace and mirrored aviators since it was an especially warm and sunny January day. TBH, I probably could've gone sans tights — it was that nice out!
I couldn't imagine a prettier backdrop for my outfit snapshots than The Fralin Museum of Art. Seriously, between the gorgeous architecture and wintry scene (these pics were taken post-Winter Storm Jonas when there was still snow on the ground), I really lucked out. Not to mention that I love visiting The Fralin whenever I'm in C'ville — it's such a gem with a fantastic art collection to match!
