Gingham Sundress

JCrew Gingham Dress 1

I’m a little behind posting this adorable J.Crew tonal gingham sundress, especially since J.Crew is giving 30% off your purchase this holiday with the code: WEEKEND.  Good news is the code works till midnight tonight (May 30, 2016 – encase you are reading this on another day).  I first saw this dress in the J.Crew catalog and ripped out the page to save for later. When there are items in catalogs that I am interested in I tear out the pages and keep them in a special pile in the office.  Occasionally I thumb through the pile to see what I might still want to keep my eye on and I kept coming back to this dress!!  I was a little concerned about how I would like the length but I decided to give it a try.  I was pleasantly surprised that I liked the length as well as the lightweight fabric, crisscross back and the pockets!  I added a thin pink bow belt from Lilly Pulitzer to breakup the pattern and add some definition to my waist.  I found that this dress ran a little big… you may want to check out the size chart and reviews before ordering!
