Happy Thursday y’all! Today is my Friday and I couldn’t be happier about it. If you follow me via Instagram {which you should!!} you know Monday was a serious sturggle. As in it was the Mondayest Monday ever! Like two Mondays in one. So yay for a Thursday that’s actually a Friday! If today is a regular Thursday for you, don’t fret, Friday is right around the corner! 

Anyways, onto today’s look, I’m excited to share one of the comfiest dresses I’ve ever worn with y’all! This striped rugby dress was a lifesaver in Charleston a couple weeks ago. Temperatures were changing like crazy {hot one day, cold and rainy the next} and there’s always lots of walking involved in Charleston. This striped rugby dress was not only comfortable but also the perfect weight for the changing temperatures.

Okay, so why is a striped rugby striped dress a must?!

Well, for the reasons listed above. Which include the fact that this style of dress is incredibly comfy and the perfect weight for spring to summer temperature changes.

Also, due to the preppy feel of a striped rugby dress you instantly look a little more polished when you opt for one of them over a basic tee shirt dress. While still being just as comfortable! A striped rugby dress is also one of those great items you can dress down or up a bit. Obviously in today’s post I really dressed it down with sneakers and a sweater around the waist. However, I could always dress it up a bit with wedges, a denim jacket, and blush cross body.
