I bought this striped dress for my trip to Europe but never actually ended up wearing it. I planned to wear it in Nice, or Monaco, but it was a little to chilly for me to be in a dress. Now that I am back in Texas however, I am definitely able to wear it, especially with the hot and humid weather we had this past weekend in Houston. As for the shoes, I also got these Superga Sneakers specifically for my trip. I heard they were quite comfortable and thought it would be great for all the walking I was going to be doing.
