Another week has passed by and another outfit inspiration for you guys: Long, striped and elegant. This is what my new dress from H&M represents.

When I first found it, I liked it, but when I put it on I fell in love. The fabric is so comfortable and it just feels sooo good at my skin. You can feel and see that this is one of the pricier items in H&M. In fact it cost me 50 € !!! – But it is definitely worth the money! The quality seems to be very good and the way it falls is just beautiful.

I also have the feeling that the dress with its stripes makes you look thinner!

I combined it with black high heels from Marco Italy, but I even love it more with heeled shoe boots. The necklace is from Zara, but from two years ago. Any bold and golden necklace is going well with this dress, just try it out!

I am wearing thin tights under the dress, this makes it also wearable in colder winter months – Yes, also in Barcelona the temperature is going down since we arrived in November.

And over it? Any short jacked does the flow, but big my favorite in this case is a leader jacket. I am a big big fan of leder jackets in general and I think that they are timeless!

Just put your black, short leder jacket over the dress and you are ready to go!

Add a hand bag to give it a little touch of colour as I am wearing a red vintage bag with it, but any bag big or small in black or red should be a great fit with the outfit! You will never believe what I payed for this bag … I was last Sunday with a good friend of mine here in Barcelona at a vintage market in Raval, close to the Metro Drassanes and he found this beautiful bag for me… I payed only 3 € !!!

When to wear a long striped dress like this? Well, I like to wear it to work as it lightens up a bit the one-tone working mood. Also for a following after work drink the dress is perfect! But I also like wearing it while going shopping or in those famous Sunday brunches that I am having with my friends!

Would you wear a dress like this? Do you like the stripes as much as I do? I would love to hear your opinion!

      Dear Ginger, thank you for passing by and for your kind words! Yes you are right, the dress certainly does also fit the holiday season 🙂
      I would prefer jewellery as the dress is already cut very high and a scarf could maybe be too much !
      Hope to see you back here soon!
