A pinstripe dress with a silk ankara tie


"I absolutely love this pinstripe dress which was inspired by dress shirt for men. It is so easy and comfortable and the pockets are really convenient.

I bought it at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago and like most outfits I immediately knew how I would wear it. I was determined to wear it with my silk ankara tie and waited expectantly for the perfect weather to do so. This dress' pastel pink color and my flowered shoes are a perfect combination for Spring.

Since this is a men's shirt inspired dress, I decided to limit my jewelry so I wore no earrings. I finished my look with Dark Scarlet lipstick by Nicka K New York. I've gotten my beautiful friend Yemisi hooked on this lipstick and it looked so good on both of us we decided to take a selfie.

Hurry to TJ Maxx and maybe you can still find this dress. If you do, let me know how you decide to wear it. I might be wearing it with a vest next time accompanied by a bow tie! Stay tuned for my upcoming post also featuring an ankara tie."
