Easy, Effortless Embroidery

We are in the middle of a major heat wave here in Southern California. It's enough to make a girl not want to go outside, but if you absolutely must, then you better have something cool on! This embroidered dress from J. Crew Factory definitely fits the bill. It's sleeveless, lightweight and has just the perfect amount of color in the embroidered details on the neckline.

I've noticed that lately I've been doing a lot of shopping online, which is convenient given that you don't have to go out in the heat to go shopping! The drawback to this is nailing the fit of certain pieces. You would think that given the amount of shopping I do at J. Crew and their factory outlet I would know my sizes, but there's definitely some fluctuation among the actual sizing among different pieces. For example, the reviews online said that this dress ran really big. I'm usually a little hesitant about just blindly following the online reviews because sometimes they seem off, but this time the suggestions regarding sizing were spot on. Usually I am a size 4 in J. Crew Factory stuff and sometimes a 6 in their dresses, but I took a 2 in this. The advice turned out to be perfect, just like the dress!
