Wearing Lately – Cargo Dress and White Sandals

Here are couple of my outfits from the past two weeks – I’ve been trying to get these posts up sooner before items sell out, I’m going to try to be even faster as the cargo dress below is going quickly!

I mentioned before in a Weekend Update that I’ve found a new love for J.Crew – this cargo dress has to be one of my favorite purchases from the brand this season. The fabric is a light linen blend that’s perfect for summer, and it’s a pullover style that’s still nipped in at the waist a bit (so it doesn’t look like I’m wearing a tent). A great casual dress, and if you have a more relaxed workplace, you could also wear it to the office. Super versatile! It does require ironing once you machine wash it – as you can tell, I didn’t do the most thorough job, but I think this dress looks good a little “rumpled”. If when you check it is sold out – keep checking back as it comes back in stock. Who knew J.Crew items were flying out so quickly, huh? Also – I’m wearing a size 0P, for those who asked!

I’m wearing these with my favorite Gucci Marmonts – the black leather is my favorite version. I will admit that I’ve repeated this exact outfit a few times already…its just so easy to wear both day and evening and looks appropriate during both.

White and black

Gap shirt, J.Crew shorts (super old, similar here, also here (under $60)), Sam Edelman sandals, Figue tote

I think I’ve owned these black eyelet shorts for as long as I’ve had my blog – which means its been five years! I’ve been desperately searching for a good replacement, and there finally are a few good contenders this season. These shorts are one of the rare clothing items which I actually wish I had bought a backup of.

I’ve owned a few pairs of the Trina sandals, but the white are my favorite. It’s really hard to find simple sandals in white, I’ve found – and these are nice and clean. I’d recommend them as a great summer shoe. Also, I’ve received a few questions about my Figue tote – I like mine a lot and always receive compliments. However, I would say that they’re definitely heavier, due to all the embellishments, than just a plain straw tote – so keep that in mind when ordering!

    That cargo dress looks better on you than it does on the model! I never would have given it a second thought looking at the picture on the site. Too bad it’s sold out here already 🙁

      Keep checking back! It comes in and out of stock. I had to do that to grab it the first time around 🙂

    I love that J.Crew dress on you! It’s so flattering. I’ve had it on my wishlist ever since it came out, but I can never catch my size. We’ll see if it’s meant to be.

    I also have the Sam Edelman Trina (in nude) from a few years ago. I like that it’s a little dressy with a low heel. Your white pair reminded me of my white Birkenstocks that I should dig out of my closet and wear!
