Wearing the striped dress

About 2 weeks ago I made a simple T shirt dress based on the Kirsten Kimono Tee, and today I decided to wear it for dress-down Friday at work. Here I am after a full day wearing it. I've added a coral pink cardigan, necklace and earrings, a black knit fabric tie belt and black sandals.

Also I had my hair cut mid week and really like it.
I have to pin the fringe (aka bangs) back until its grown out into the layers a bit more.
Here's the original dress laid flat so you can see the shape

Ruthie, just love the dress and the way you accessorized it! Looks lovely on you, so smart with the pop of color in the beads. I wonder what the skirt would look like just below the knee? Perhaps pin it up and show us! It's a length Kate suggested btw. Also, love the haircut; i guess you have some natural curl, so not so much fuss!

Looks fabulous. Smart and comfortable, a winning combination. Love the colour pop from the cardigan and necklace.
