The Perfect Dress for Summer

This summer, there have been a few highly coveted items from J. Crew that have proven to be highly elusive and difficult to get. This striped maxi dress is one of those items. I purchased it when it first came out a couple months ago and, at that time, I had to "stalk" it online for at least a week, waiting for it to come back in stock in my size. Well, it was well worth the effort, as it is really the perfect dress for summer! I love how easy it is to wear (you literally can just throw it on with a pair of sandals and you're good to go!) and also how cool it is for these warm summer months. Plus, the stripes are so colorful that they can't help but to put a smile on your face!

If you're interested in this dress, I would definitely recommend being patient and, if you hit the website right, you might be able to find it in you size! One of the tricks I use is that J. Crew often restocks its website or changes its sale prices around 10pm PST. In my experience, this is usually the best time to shop! Another tip for those of you who are interested in this dress is that the sizing runs a little big or, according to some reviews online, very big. For reference I am wearing a size small, which is my usual size, but I think an XS would have worked even better. Because of the stretch in the fabric, there's definitely a little bit of flexibility with sizes.
