You ever look through your closet and find that you have way over purchased one print or color? Well if that print is black and white stripes, I am here to help you out with 9 different looks featuring the monochromatic print.

striking in stripes modest outfit lookbook and outfit ideasToday I am compiling and looking back at some of my favorite moments in black and white stripes.

I have a few patterns that I wear a lot, and stripes is definitely one of them as well as floral print and polka dots.

Black and white prints are so easy on a grab and go day. They go with every color or you can always just throw on a black cardigan or top and still feel pretty and put together. I have mentioned before that getting dressed helps me to feel motivated. Guarantee if you find me in my pajamas at 10am I have not gotten anything done. It’s good to have some basic pieces that mix together fast and easy for hectic days.

old navy black and white striped dress with black cardigan easy modest outfitThis knee length dress is from Old Navy, and hit me right at the knee. I’m just over 5’3″ so it is a bit easier for me to find dresses that hit me at the length that I prefer. I have no idea what the struggles are of a tall person.

Necklace: Rue21

Shoes: Maurices

polka dot chambray with black and white stripe a line skirt, modest outfit ideaI don’t know where to start with this look. This really affordable polka dot chambray top is from Walmart. They have really stepped up there style game. We’re most all going to be at Walmart at some point, and if you find yourself there, then you must at least walk through the clothing section, they have some gems.

I love skirts, I am really trying to branch out to more dresses, but I’m truly a #skirtgirl all the way.

Boots on repeat from Maurices and a simple white bib necklace from Burke’s outlet to complete this look.

red and black and gold nail artI attempted to do some buffalo plaid with my nails, which completely failed. However the finished product was still cute enough to share, even if it didn’t end up looking exactly like what I was going for.

suede hat, striped tee, statement necklace and denim skirt, for an easy dressed up denim look, modest outfitI do love to accessorize so I added this great cuff from Burke’s outlet and leopard print heels from Poshmark. I love Poshmark, so many great finds on that site. Poshmark has a lot of previously used women’s clothing, handbags and purses. They even have designer names if you are into that.

Make sure if you are shopping on Poshmark you use my code “PDSMN” when you download the app to save $10 off your first purchase. I got these leopard print lovelies for only $8 on Poshmark.

Hat is from Loft Outlet, which I purchased during a great store wide sale.

black and white striped maxi with burgundy/maroon and camel cardiganI like to wear maxi skirts when I am planning a day of being out and about with my children. Wore this to teach the little 3 and 4 year old Sunday evening class at my church, and as I recall stayed all clean that evening.

easy, simple black and white striped maxi with burgundy/maroon and camel cardiganStriped maxi was a wishlist item from an trip to J. Crew. I could not stop thinking about this skirt. It wasn’t on the list of things I was planning on purchasing that day so I left it behind. Later though, I was able to get it with a coupon during a sale (yay!) and I really love it.

Added my favorite bow pendant necklace from Kohl’s and some beaded bracelets to complete this look.

Kate spade, black and white stripes and red and black buffalo plaid outfit inspoOkay guys can we talk about Poshmark again? I love Coach and Michael Kors, but I was really wanting a Kate Spade bag. I went looking at the Kate Spade website and then at my wallet and decided that it was okay to love things we would never own haha.

After explaining to my husband about the Poshmark app, I had showed him the Kate Spade bag I wanted was even on their! Still a little bit out of my price range, but still nearly half of what Kate Spade had it listed for on clearance. It ended up costing less than my slightly smaller bag from Coach outlet.

Did I mention that you save $10 when you download the Poshmark app and enter my code “PDSMN” ?! I hope you check it out and find something amazing.

This skirt is from Jane.com too. Yes, really. They have such great stuff at such great prices, and it is always so unique and different from what you see at brick and mortar retail places. I don’t know, I like being the only girl with the things I have in my closet.

Except for you guys, I want you to also have all the things. So head over to Jane and see what you love.

black and white striped tee shirt dress with mint cardigan sweater, teacher outfit ideaThis striped dress is so gorgeous, and current and should be appearing on Jane a few more times as per usual with that lovely site. They often have things 3 or 4 times a season so if you love something and you missed it, it may not be too late. I often check the sneak peaks on the Jane app (they become available around 4pm eastern time) so that I know to shop early if they are going to be selling something that I like.

This striped dress is actually charcoal and white and is short sleeve and light weight and I love, love, love it.

Get all the details on this lovely dress on the full blog post HERE. Striped dress from Jane Review.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to come back tomorrow, when I will be featuring a great swing dress that will be available at one of my favorite discount clothing site for only a few days.

If I haven’t gushed enough about how I love Jane.com on my Instagram (click here if you are not following me yet, cause I don’t want you to miss anything) I super love this website.

I have never had any trouble with an order and I have always loved everything that I have received.

Today, they have these gorgeous striped dresses for sale for only $21.99. I recently purchased one of these lightweight tee shirt dresses in the charcoal striped and loved it so much I wanted to show you how great this dress is while it is available for purchase on Jane.

black and white striped tee shirt dress with mint cardigan sweater, teacher outfit ideaJane is a third party website that brings deals to people like you and me at a great discount off of retail, but their sales are only available for a limited time. Usually around 4 days. These dresses just went live on Jane today so there is still time to get yours before they are gone.

Daily Boutique Deals

You can click here to go to Jane and take a look at all the styles this beautiful dress comes in. They have thick stripes and thin stripes, red, and navy. By itself the dress may feel like it is a bit plain I will admit, but it such a great layering piece. Add a belt, or a statement necklace, and some great shoes and you are all set to go.

I highly recommend this dress. I can’t say enough about how outrageously comfortable it is. I hope if you get one you will love it as much as I do.

black and white striped tee shirt dress with mint cardigan sweater, modest outfit ideaOkay, so let’s talk about my dress specifically. I actually bought the charcoal and white striped style of this dress. They have a variety of colors, but black and white stripes are something I’ve been obsessing over so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this style dress straight from my style wish list. Also my other tee shirt dress with black and white stripes is just too heavy for the upcoming warm weather.

perfect spring striped tee shirt dress, black and white strped dress with mint sweater and mint necklace, modest spring fashionThe stripes aren’t true black as the description stated but more of a dark grey, which is still beautiful. The charcoal gives it more of a sprig feel anyway, which is great for the warm weather, also it perhaps leaves room for me to buy a black and white striped dress before the summer is over. (I’m joking, but it could really happen)

great deal on this black and white striped modest tee shirt dress from janeEverybody always wants to know when ordering online, “Is this true to size?”

Great question, because the return window is small. Yes these particular dresses are true to size. I usually wear a large or an extra large. I bought this dress from Jane.com in an extra large, and it is a perfect relaxed fit.

The shipping does take longer than shopping retail, which is why I always say, if you want it, you should just get it now. Don’t wait for the sale to come around again, because you could be enjoying it all that time. I like to buy as many of my spring items as I can when the season begins because I want to wear them over and over.

IMG_0688-002My first thought when I got this dress out of the packaging was to pair it with mint, because I love that color.

Everything is pastels for spring and summer and that is just perfect with me.

This mint cardigan is from Old Navy it is a purchase from last year, but I noticed this hi-low cardigan available for purchase on their website the other day, so you can still get it there if you love it.

These mint wedges are from Shoe Carnival, and are also a purchase from last year. They are available in several colors and if my budget wasn’t the master of my closet I would have bought them in all the colors, they are so stylish and comfortable.

striped dresses on jane.comHere’s a look at a few of the other styles you can get from Jane.com today

This dress is actually available in 8 different styles and goes all the sizes range all the way from a 0/2 all the way up to an 18/20 (xxl)! That always excites me, because I am a curvy girl and a lot of boutique clothes stop one size short of fitting me.

Can’t wait to share more ways I styled this awesome dress with you all spring and summer. If you have styled this dress and posted it on Instagram, please feel free to tag me in your Instagram comments because I would love to see it. (My Instagram username is @smartnsavvymom).

Happy Wednesday all!

See you next time!
