J. Crew Factory Daybreak Dress




This Daybreak dress I recently got a J. Crew Factory is easily going to be one of my favorites this summer. It is such a great cut – and it’s perfect to wear to work or for play. My office tends to be the temperature of a refrigerator, so adding a cardigan to the look was easy – and cute. The dress comes in so many different colors. My coworker had the hot pink one on the other day with a chunky gold necklace, and it looked absolutely adorable. Also, getting it at the Factory store guaranteed a great price too. They always have incredible sales! And yay to that!

Strapless Dress for Work and Play

This Lily Pulizer “Spritz” pattern was out last year. I remember trying this dress on and falling in love with how cute it was! I left it on the rack. Even on sale, I didn’t want to pay that much for it.


I’m glad I waited. While in Hilton Head this summer, I hopped into SM Bradford at Wexford, which is basically a complete Lily store. Perusing through the sales racks – and there it was. My perfume bottle dress! For $59!!! Fo shiz that dress came home with me at that price!

I had noticed a lot of girls at work lately had been wearing their favorite strapless dresses with cardigans over them. So, I thought why not do that with this dress?!

So, here’s the work version with a white 3/4 length cardi:

Simply take off the cardi…
