Happy Hump Day! 

Can we take a moment and talk about how adorable this dress is!?!  Very adorable! It’s on sale + addl 50% off…a-mazing! 

It’s sleeveless, but since it’s not sleeveless-dress-season, one of many ways to combat that problem is to wear something under the dress (over the dress is an option as well). 

 This time I went with a simple black long sleeve shirt from Target.  I would also wear a white button down shirt as well as….chambray. Of course, chambray is an option. It always is! 

Thanks for stopping by!

    Love everything about this outfit – but especially the coat. I've been eyeing it up, but afraid to pull the trigger because of the whole "FINAL" part of the sale. Any recommendations on sizing? I just picked up the Majesty Pea Coat in a 6 (and I'm usually a 6 in J.Crew blazers), but some of the longer J.Crew coats I've tried on this season seem to fit snugger. Thanks in advance for any fit advice you can share!-MicheleThe Salty Hanger

      Hi Michele, I'm usually size 0 in J.Crew coats but this one is 00 and fits fine. I could have gone with 0 as well (they didn't have it in store when I purchased it). I'd say it runs slightly big…

    You may have just convinced me to go scouring my local J Crew for that dress – I was just in there last week and browsed right by the dress section because this idea never crossed my mind. That's why I love your blog Lilly! 🙂

    Seriously, when you come up with these kinds of outfits, it reminds me of something that Jackie O would wear. So classy, so elegant, so stylish! You always do well with creating your own look, and not just copying everyone else. Thank you for that :)

      You're so sweet Ashely, thank you! I try to get inspired by others, and not copy their style. It's important to make a look our own, even though at times some of us might end up wearing the exact same thing and not even know it 🙂
