Stripes & Thigh Highs

Hello! It's on cool fall days like today that I'm the most grateful for going to school in such a pretty area. I love walking around the stunning neighborhoods surrounding my school and studying in the cute park by my school.

Today, I debuted my long-sleeve, striped dress. This past August, I picked this dress up at Forever 21. The neutral colors, classic stripe print and long-sleeve style of the dress drew my eye to this dress. One of the best parts about this dress? It cost less than $15.

This dress is surprisingly comfortable and I look forward to wearing it more this fall. Besides being able to wear this dress on its own, I can't wait to try out several layering options with this dress.

The weather was absolutely beautiful today so I didn't need a sweater or jacket but I did throw on a pair of thigh highs with it. I purchased these thigh highs on the same shopping expedition that I purchased the dress. However, I purchased these thigh high socks at Free People. They cost about $15 which is a fairly good price for a pair of thigh high socks.

If only everything in Free People was that affordable. Going into Free People was the biggest tease; there were so many things that I instantly fell in love with but my wallet told my heart "no." Oh, what I would give for the merchandise inside of Free People! The bohemian, free-spirited mood of the store simply sweeps me off my feet.

I kept my look fairly simple by adding a pair of black combat boots and a black, leather backpack. I also added a swipe of dark lipstick.
