Take Me to the Tropics

by Jessica Sturdy on April 9, 2012

I love the tropical leaf print that has been popping up everywhere. It’s two parts fabulous and one part older-man-Hawaiian-shirt and I think the combination of the two is awesome. I had been admiring this dress and decided to pull the trigger / bite the bullet / click the mouse when it went on sale a week or two ago.

We had a pretty casual Easter Sunday… mid-morning mass followed by brunch. Naturally, I ate myself into a coma and took a three hour nap when we got home.

Dress: J.Crew (similar) // Bow Flats: Me Too // Sunglasses: Prada // Bangle: Sequin NYC // Earrings: Accessorize c/o // Nails: Essie ‘Play Date’

Here are some other leafy loves:
J.Crew Fanfare Tunic, Peter Som Bamboo Dress, Peter Som Bamboo Blouse, TopShop Trousers, Vince Camuto Dress, Current/Elliott Floral Stiletto Jeans, Free People Floral Blazer, ASOS Floral Blazer

LOVE it! This dress was on clearance at my local store & I tried it on…but it looks much cuter on you than it did on me! :)

I waited and bought it on clearance too! The fit is kind of funky in the hip area for me, but I just couldn’t say no to the print.

Love the dress! You may have had a casual day but su madre was b-u-s-y!

Love the print on this dress! Even though it’s tropical, the black and white make it very chic. I like that you kept the accessories simple and just added a pop with the pretty polish!

Thanks Amber! The black and white makes the dress kind of classic, even though I’m sure the tropical trend will fade.

OMG. Not only does that dress rock, but you have the fabulous Prada sunglasses. Can you still get those? I have never owned a pair of expensive sunglasses, mostly because I couldn’t be bothered, but when I saw those, I was in love. What a fab outfit!

The dress is from J.Crew, but I believe it is now sold out online. Check your local store!

what size is this dress in the picture? it looks like it runs big?

It’s at the dry cleaner, but I believe it’s a 2. Runs pretty true to size. The nature of the dress is a bit loose and boxy.
