Things are getting crazy over here on SMT...here I am in another dress ;) This was another dress that was on heavy rotation during my trip to Asia last year. I'm happy to be breaking it out of retirement. It's so comfy and perfect for chill summer days especially when paired with sneakers. I'm actually surprised that a year later J. Crew still has it available - it must be fan favorite.
Since the dress is fitted I decided to add a denim vest to give it a little volume. Plus adding the extra layer made me feel more comfortable in it and being comfortable and confident in what you wear is important. You can opt to ditch the vest and wear a chambray shirt that can be tied around your waist. Really any button down style shirt would be a great option to pair with this dress. And whether you prefer sandals or sneakers, either will work. Personally, I love the sportier vibe that pairing this dress with sneakers add. It definitely makes it weekend ready.
This dress is such a classic style and base piece to layer around especially moving into the early fall months. You can easily transition this dress into fall by changing out the summer accessories. By adding a cute suede moto jacket or long cardigan paired with ankle boots you'll be fall ready.
I will definitely have to take my own advice because this dress is too comfy to stop wearing at the end of summer.
