Black + White




Printed Shift Dress:  Tommy Hilfiger (similar) || Sandals:  Jack Rogers || Glasses:  c/o Firmoo
  Necklace:  Marley Lilly || Earrings:  Lilly Pulitzer  (similar) ||  Bracelet:  J. Crew Factory (similar)


Confession:  I hated this dress for THE longest time.  I'm not big on logos (unless it's a Louis bag) so I think I had this for two years before I threw it on one morning because I was super desperate for something to wear to work.  Now, I love it!  Unless you're looking at it up close, you don't really notice what the pattern is.

I'm also super excited that it goes perfectly with my favorite sandals!  I live in Jacks in the summer, and I can't wait to buy my next pair.

If you like my look, be sure to look through these similar pieces... a lot of them are on sale!
  


Have you ever had a piece in your closet that you absolutely hated at first, but now you can't live without it in your wardrobe?

XX,

SS

  2. I totally didn't realize that was the logo! I have had lots of pieces that I thought I didn't like until all of a sudden they were my favourite. It's just how it goes and it's a nice little surprise when it happens!

  10. I LOVE your jacks! I had a pair, but wore them so much that they fell apart. I'm currently saving up for another.

    1. I love mine! I can't decide if I want to get another monogrammed pair or another pair of the sandals.

      You are so sweet! Thank you :) I really don't like to wear glasses, but I started using some lash serum that really dried my eyes out at first. Thanks for making my day!! Xo

  12. You look so adorable! That dress looks perfect for work and very comfortable. I can be pretty indecisive when shopping, so I usually only buy something if I love it!

    Great post! xox.

  16. I'm glad you decided to give it another try, it really looks great! Really professional, but still cute! And you styled it really well. Your hair pulled back with your glasses on makes it look even more professional.

  22. Sometimes I dig things out of my closet that I haven't worn in years but suddenly re-fall in love with it all over again. This is a really cute outfit, perfect for the office too.

  23. I too had and still have many items in my wardrobe which I wonder why I bought them in the first place. Sometimes I rediscover them again and like them enough to wear them out now but usually give them to charity in the end lol. :D

  27. It looks great on you! I'm fickle about prints also. The sandals go great with it. Sometimes things take time to appeal to us :)
