summer paisley

J.Crew paisley silk dress; Madewell pompom necklace, leather bracelet (old), anklet (old) & ring (old); GAP cross strap slides in true indigo.

For my outfit today, I’m rocking my summer paisley with a J.Crew silk dress that was a recent birthday gift. It’s so flirty and fun. I love the smocked waist because it provides a feminine silhouette. I’m wearing a size 2 and I like the fit. I’m normally a size 0 in J.Crew but the defined waist of the dress is very flattering. I also like the larger size because I wouldn’t like the smocked waist of the dress to be tight over my torso. It’s loose and comfortable, which I appreciate for those sweltering summer days and nights.

The skirt portion of the dress is lined with dark navy polyester so it’s not revealing underneath and is clutch for those windy breezes. I remember seeing this dress style online at J.Crew a few months ago in a solid color (green?) and I wasn’t a fan of the smocked waist. It’s much less noticeable with the paisley print and I’m seriously loving the navy color palette of the paisley.

The best part? This dress is on sale with an additional 40% off (today only!) with promo code SALESEARCH.

Enjoy your week!

      Thank you, ToryBri! I agree, plus it’s still hot and humid where I live.

      Hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer, my friend. xx

        Thanks, I’m going to enjoy Summer/Fall till the snow flies.

        What are your thoughts on wearing white shoes or flats after the Labor Day long weekend?
