Bottle & Bottega

Before I left Chicago, my girlfriends and I went to a BYOB painting class at Bottle & Bottega. We sipped on wine while we learned how to paint a sunset. You can see my finished “artwork” here… I could use a little bit of practice. :)

Chambray Dress: J.Crew // Linen Scarf: J.Crew (similar) // Sandals: c/o Bakers // Sunglasses: ASOS // Bag: Michael Kors // Watch: Michael Kors (almost identical)

    Umm So I can’t decide what my favorite part of this outfit is. 1- i am absolutely drooling over the MK bag. 2- I love the J Crew dress & Scarf. I’m a J. Crew junkie !! :)

    I’m a fairly new follower. I’ve stumbled accross your blog in the past but I’ve just recently subscribed :) & I think I’m going to be glad I did!

    Love that dress so much – I’ve been on the hunt for a great fitting chambray style like this! The yellow scarf is the perfect accessory for this look! :)

    Love this chambray dress. I just bought that same tote with the signature print. Love Michael Kors, or maybe I’m just biased because work at an MK lol.

    Love the entire outfit! May I ask, did you find the dress to be true to size? J.Crew sizing is so hard to follow! This dress really would be a great addition to my closet! I can picture wearing it in the fall too with brown boots! Love it!!!

      I actually sized down in the dress! I’m usually a 2 at J.Crew, sometimes a 4 in bottoms… just depends because, like you said, J.Crew sizing is hard to keep up with! I actually bought a 0 in this dress and it’s not tight around the rear-region, which is why I sometimes have to buy a 4 in bottoms. J.Crew bottoms aren’t cut for girls who have some junk in the trunk. :)

    Thank you for your reply!!! That really helps! I was planning to make a trip to J.Crew this afternoon for the Brompton hobo in Henna and I might have to order this if they don’t have one in the store! I can always use another casual dress! Hope you are loving New York!!! I can’t wait for my next visit there! Favorite city for sure! :)
