Summertime Stripes + Memorial Day Weekend Sales


Easy-breezy sundresses that are cute, comfy and lightweight are definitely my Spring and Summer go-tos. Case in point: this darling, cotton dress with its fresh summertime stripes in blue and white. I just can't get enough of it! 

This button-down dress from Abercrombie & Fitch has easily been one of my favorite finds in recent months, and I'm so excited to finally be sharing it with you in this blog post, especially now that it's on sale!
Thanks to all the amazing Memorial Day sales, this dress is now marked down to only $35! (No code needed.) I absolutely adore it and highly recommend it. I have already worn it an embarrassing number of times!

 I immediately fell in love with its simple-sweet design and all the little details that make it special: the button-down detailing, the front patch pockets, the sweetheart neckline, and the adjustable straps. It hits all the right style notes and makes dressing for hot-weather days really fast and effortless.

The buttons aren't functional, taking away any worrisome gaping, thank goodness. The back of the dress has stretchy smocking, too, allowing you to just slip it on and go.

This dress comes in other colors, lengths, and sizing options, too. I was thrilled to see a blush-pink color in this same style, and of course added it to my cart along with this striped one. If you follow me on Instagram, you may recall me featuring it a few months ago just before my trip to CancĂșn. (See it on me here.) It's equally adorable and was perfect for the warm, tropical climate. It packs nicely, too, with little to no wrinkling if you roll it up in your suitcase!

As far as sizing goes, I'd say it runs true-to-size to slightly small. I sized up to a Small for comfort and also opted for the Tall version for more length. I'm 5'2" and it hits a few inches above my knees. Any shorter, and I'd probably wear it less since it would be a true mini dress on me, and would limit the number of places I'd be able to wear it. Depending on your personal fit preference, though, you're safe ordering your true size and then choosing between the regular, petite, or tall options for less or more length as needed.

The dress holds its own without a lot of accessories, but I added a few feminine ones like a blush ring-handle tote, my favorite Ray-bans, gold hoop earrings, and nude ankle-tie sandals. I also tied an ivory cardigan around my waist to lend it a slightly more casual vibe while also giving me an extra layer of warmth for when it gets chilly. 

The styling options are virtually endless for this dress since it can easily be dressed up or down with a few quick accessory swaps. For a dressier look, go with a cropped cardigan or blazer, statement earrings, and heels. For a casual look, go with a denim jacket, minimal or dainty jewelry, espadrille wedges or flat sandals. 


Since this dress comes in so many pretty options, I wanted to share them all in one spot for you. Scroll through to see all my favorite button-down dresses from Abercrombie -- all on sale!
