I’ve been trying to not go crazy with online shopping lately, because there were a few weeks over the summer where new boxes of my purchases were delivered on an almost daily basis. But I was browsing J. Crew’s website while getting my blowout in New York over Labor Day, and since there was a sale, I decided to go with my vacation mentality and clicked “buy” before I could talk myself out of it.
I’m so glad that I did! I always love polka dots – I feel like floral patterns often make me look like I’m 12 years old, but polka dots never let me down. My favorite part of the dress is that the straps are ribbons that tie, so they’re adjustable to whatever length you need. Straps are almost always too long for me, so this is perfect!
This weekend, Pittsburgh made up for the chilly fall temperatures and gloomy skies by giving us the perfect weather, and I made sure to take advantage of it. This dress was the perfect choice for a warm September night. The navy blue color makes it perfect for the fall, but it’s still light and airy enough not to feel too heavy in the warmer weather.
I think the dress will transition perfectly into fall, with a black cardigan and black booties or flats. It’s definitely a dress I’ll get a lot of wear out of, and the impulse purchase was a great one!
