Postcard

J.Crew off-the-shoulder ruffle-hem dress in postcard print

For me, a casual outfit doesn't necessarily mean active wear or jeans.  I like to find well-made, comfortable outfits that look a lot fancier than they feel.  This J.Crew dress is the perfect example of looking like I tried when I really just threw this on and went about my day.  Smoke and mirrors people, it's really a lot easier than it looks!

Dress- J. Crew
Shoes- Chelsea Crew
Bangles- Splendette and Trashy Diva
Lipstick- c/o Besame Cosmetics in Victory Red

The print on this beautiful dress was inspired by the southern coast of Spain.  It features an elastic neckline and sleeves that can be worn up or down, a ruffle hem, self-tie sash, and a side zip closure.  It's made from a breathable yet sturdy cotton that's perfect for the warmer weather but can easily be layered for fall.  Amazingly enough, this is actually my very first J.Crew piece!  Considering how much I love the quality and construction of this dress, I feel like a new obsession has blossomed.  Although most sizes of this dress are sold out, you can find the rest of the Postcard print collection HERE.  All sale is currently 40% off with the code HELLOSALE.  Get it while you can!

I've been thinking about starting a new hobby to occupy my time here at home...  At least until I find a decent job!  There are lots of things that interest me but I feel like blogging can be really time consuming.  It's not that I don't love blogging, I just have an itch for something new.  I want to sit here and say that I'll be posting here a little less to focus on something different, but my controlling nature usually gets the best of me and I'll try to juggle both.  I'll make sure to keep you posted on my progress and if you see less updates in the future, you'll know why!
