it's a simple navy and white striped dress with buttons down the back. it will be perfect for the occasion. unfortunately though, my shopping problem kicked in and i picked up a few more items from jcrew, but in my defense, they were all on sale.
i've been lusting after green bottoms and jcrew's number 2 pencil skirts for awhile now. i actually ended up getting two. i only took this kelly green color into the dressing room with me, but when i asked for a smaller size to compare, katie from jcrew brought me in this color and a lime green color. i couldn't resist. the sale was too awesome, as was the lime green color.
i also picked up a perfect tee in navy. it was on super duper sale and i spilled olive oil on my other navy tshirt so it was a no brainer. if you haven't tried jcrew's perfect shirts, i highly recommend. they're really durable and they come in a variety of colors and styles.
this is a little hard to see, but this black lace collared shirt was so soft and inviting, i had to get it. i can't wait to wear it with both of my new pencil skirts. again, it was on super duper sale, so i didn't feel bad.

then i made the mistake of heading to the gap. this resulted in more green bottoms being purchased. unfortunately these were not on sale, but weren't overly pricey. they're a more relaxed fit and i opted for a size up then i normally wear in gap to make them extra slouchey. so. comfortable.

the last piece i also picked up from the gap which is this basic navy and white striped tee. i paired it on saturday with my new slouchy green pants and got multiple compliments. as i said before, compliments to me = outfit success.
now i'm on a shopping ban to get ready for AJD and my upcoming trips: washington, d.c., nyc, austin, tx, and san antonio, tx. it's going to be a busy april and may.
