Wear it Both Ways: Lands' End Canvas Sleeveless Striped Dress

These two looks are anchored by a very versatile dress--the Sleeveless Striped Dress by Lands' End Canvas--currently on sale for $60 $24.99.  I wear this dress all of the time because it's super comfy,  easy, and washes extremely well.  Plus, I love the ultra-flattering fit-and-flare shape.  It's a touch high-waisted, so ladies with a shorter torso are better off with this

100% cotton, machine wash, and Lands' End and Lands' End Canvas items are covered under a generous return policy.  I am a fan.  This dress is made of a mid-weight, soft cotton jersey that is perfect for fall (a bit heavy for summer in my opinion, but hey, I suppose you can get multiple seasons of wear out of it) and layering.

My only complaint: the arm holes--near the underarm--reveal a little bit more skin than I'd prefer.  All in all, it's a small complaint, so I'm very happy with this lovely dress.

  2. Great look. Would you mind divulging how tall you are? I am wondering if the Melissa Button boots might be too tall for me. I am a petite 5'1" with average calves - thanks!

    1. I think they'll probably work for you. I'm about 5'2" and my sister Aili is 5'3", and they fit her just fine as well. :) Hope that helps.

  3. this is SUCH a cute dress, i really love both of the ways you chose to showcase it!
