While I mainly prefer separate pieces to dresses (more mix and match capabilities), I certainly have found some dresses this summer that I love and continue to wear over and over again.
And while I think this may be the first time that this dress has made an appearance on the blog, it definitely was not the first time I had worn it! This pretty, gingham number is from the Maison Jules line at Macy’s and is the perfect gingham print. The Maison Jules line always tends to run short on me, but not this dress. It’s the perfect length for work (styled above) or for play with sandals/wedges and a denim jacket (or no jacket if it continues to be 90+ where you live too)!
While I don’t know how often I’ll be able to wear it in fall and winter, I am going to try to squeeze as many wears in as I possible can between now and then. Since everything is better in gingham…and in a belt that knots itself!
ps. If you buy this dress, it can always double as a Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz costume for Halloween. You’re welcome…and I’m over 2.5 months early! ;)
