Swiss Dot Dress + J.Crew Sunflower Necklace | Outfits

Dear Chrissy,

This feather light cotton dress is one of my favorites for hot, humid days. It’s really only appropriate for summer, so I try to get as much wear out of it as possible during the season. It helps that the color goes so great with just about anything, and that I can dress it up or down as long as the occasion isn’t too fancy.

I finally caved and got the J.Crew sunflower necklace. It was a toss up between white and pink, but white won out for versatility. The plating is antique, so I think it’ll be a good fall and winter piece, too. This is one necklace that I actually think is worth its full price ($50) because the resin and chain are both very high quality. If you’re on the fence about this one, I encourage you to buy. It’s worth the price, especially now that it’s marked down.

Hope you had an excellent weekend! Have you bought anything fun lately?

    Swiss dot! I love Swiss dot. It’s such a fun texture, I always want to pet it and play with the nubs when I’m wearing something Swiss dotty. That color is gooooorgeous on you too!

    I bought a really cute second pair of Danskos recently because my first pair were so comfy, and I also got a pretty adorable dress at one of my favorite thrift stores over the weekend. I wore them together today, obviously.

    I agree with the first comment. That dress looks fantastic on you. I adore the bangles as well! You might be able to get some Autumn use out of it with a cardigan and some tights (colored maybe) who knows.

    This is a perfect hot Summer outfit IMO because it’s a simple, pretty dress played up with accessories. That’s usually how I try to dress in the heat, thanks for the inspiration!
