I wore this outfit on Sunday to brunch and a photo session with some of my favorite blogger babes. We had so much fun discovering this old loading dock and messing around with our cameras. I wanted to be comfy yet chic and spent a good 15 minutes staring at my closet unsure of what to wear. Whenever i’m in this situation my default is always a dress of some kind. This old J.Crew shift has served me well through countless seasons and when paired with this equally cheery vest, it transitions perfectly into cooler weather.
Fun fact: I shrunk this dress in the dryer a few months ago. I love it so much that I opt to pair it with 100% opaque tights and boots to still be able to wear it.
I love that the inside of this hood also has contrasting stripes. Fun, but unintentional! Because I know this exact dress is so old, here are a few other options that i’m loving (and seriously considering picking up to replace this old one i’ve got).
