How to wear a striped dress (and it's under $100!)

I bought a perfect dress at J.Crew; navy, it has stripes, it could be worn during the summer and layered for fall. I'm planning to add a white button up underneath it and booties for the colder months.

In the meantime, enjoy the view, the fresh breeze, and the palm trees near AT&T Park, this dress is the perfect addition to my stripes addiction. It runs true to size - I'm a six petite at J.Crew, and the fit of this dress is fantastic: fitted in the right places, hugging my curves and super flattering length too.  

Dresses like this one are instant classics for me; works great for the office with heels and Sunday strolls with flats. And, did I mention that's less than $100! YES, it's a total no brainer.

Also, I loved this location (even though I had to change in a public restroom which was a HARROWING EXPERIENCE, we're talking a San Francisco bathroom near a baseball stadium) I'm no stranger to change in the streets while Christine and I are shooting. I've mastered the art of the public display of granny panties but, I'll use a bathroom when available.
