I didn’t Want This Dress Until This Happened

I’m not quite sure why I didn’t immediately gravitate towards the J.Crew sundress in the Ratti® Happy Cat Print. It has a festive print in colors that I love. On a recent trip to J.Crew, though, I passed by the dress (on a sale rack, no doubt) while wearing my J.Crew Collection Mixed Gingham Print sandals and noticed that they shared the same colors. I tried them on together, then, and mixed-print magic happened. That encounter inspired today’s look, an outfit I wore to a happy hour a week ago.

By the way, remember when this Coach bag was the must-have bag back around 2012? Mine still comes in handy whenever I need a pop of green. It’s such a classic style too.

      Thanks, Natasha! Girl…I jumped at the sandals the moment they became eligible for store promotions. I didn’t want to take any chances 🙂

    You look awesome (and I rarely ever make comments on anybody’s blogs). I was on the fence about this dress, but after doing an image search and stumbling upon your site, I ordered the dress 🙂
