The Cherry Blossom Crew is out of school for the summer this week! Some of our readers have days or weeks to go yet, but we wanted to share a special look with you to get you into the summer spirit.
Blog model and contributor, Alexa, found this ultra-cute dress last week. The dress is from Zara, which means it’s not only stylish, but affordable, too.
What we love? First of all, this striped dress lets you play with the trendy off-the-shoudler look, but we feel this particular style is teen-appropriate. The bell sleeves are interesting and flattering, and the hem line is short but not too short. Some off-the-shoulder dresses like to slip up or down and this can become annoying. The stretchy, ruched band on Alexa’s dress will keep the top in place. Winner, all around.
Alexa paired her new dress with sneakers, of which we are always a fan. Her dress would work perfectly for a party, too. Just swap the kicks for sandals or a wedge heel.
The colors are just right for your Fourth of July celebrations, too.
