Snowball

I love cotton shirt dresses for work in the summer, having long sleeves is great for when the a/c is cranked up, but outside I can cuff them. I can also see layering this in the fall, so I know I'll get several wears out of it this year.

This week I am styling my thrifty finds from ThredUP and even though this cotton J.Crew dress was a little more expensive than the lovely silk dress I got, $33 is still a reasonable price for J.Crew and as I mentioned, it will probably get a bit more wear than the silk dress.

Also, if you are wondering about the 'snowball' it is in reference to the flowers!

I am participating in the ThredUP $150 style challenge. See my other looks here!

  1. Ooh, such a great dress, and definitely not bad for J.Crew! The flowers are so pretty!
    Yea, haha...I really only have 2 pieces from past collaborations - my Jason Wu dress and Missoni flats and I still wear both...maybe I'll wear my Jason Wu dress next week :)
    I always buy a ton and then end up returning most of it ;)

  4. After this week's posts, you have me completely sold on ThredUp - this dress sealed the deal. I mean, I can never argue with anything from J. Crew for only $33, but the dress is so cute and practical, too! I'm slowly beginning to think about office life again (sigh...) and the one perk is thinking about my wardrobe, which will definitely include a shirt dress or two :)
