Circles and Stripes (OOTD)

Hi friends! I'm wrapping up a very intense, work-packed four weeks. And um...remember that shopping ban? Weeeell, I'm gonna have to reboot it. Because I totally busted it. It started with two all-nighters in one week, which culminated around the time J. Crew was running its 30% off sale promotion...which led to...some indiscretions. And then, I remembered that I had to use a Banana Republic rewards card that was expiring today, so I stopped by Gap to pick up a top for the DH. Only...I couldn't find a good top for him (I looked! Honest!) and...I found this dress instead. At least it was in the sale section! And with the rewards, it was under $10. Yay!

Also? I love it with this necklace Kathryn got me for my birthday. Thanks, Kathryn! 


Dress: Gap Striped Jersey Dress (similar here, here, and a maxi version here)
Necklace: J. Crew Bubble Necklace (more yellow necklaces here, here, and here)






The dress is a little big...but I think after a good wash, it might shrink a little? Fingers crossed. 

Thanks for stopping by!

    BTW, the dress will shrink a bit after te first wash. I line dried mine but it still tightened up some.

  6. Nice buy! For $10 - awesome deal! If it doesn't shrink, I think it'd look cute with a bright belt! PS Next time you hear about these sales (like the 30% off sale items at JCrew), can you post about it!? Thanks! :D

  7. I have the same dress (and in navy as well) and it does shrink in the wash so it's good to get it a bit loose!

  8. I also succumbed to the comfort of this dress, despite it being also a little big on me. I guess great minds think alike! ;) I usually wear it with a bright blue belt and and a navy blazer. I have only hand-washed this sucker, but I'd be interested in hearing what results you've had with the shrinking!
