Weekend Update

1. I’ve been shopping a lot at J.Crew lately – four orders in a month! – and have been really impressed. I wanted to share one of my favorite items so far, which I stalked for a week to find in my size – these chambray shorts.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but lately I not only have been liking a lot of J.Crew items – a bunch of items seem to be sold out! Is the brand finding its mojo again? These shorts for example, were almost entirely sold out – but I recently noticed that they’ve been able to restock most sizes.

1. This week I’ve been very much lusting over the Santorini dress by DVF, which a dear friend helpfully linked to me, noting that it looked very similar to my favorite Camila dress, only in a cotton/linen blend and short…
