Max Studio fit n flare dress
Dress, Max Studio (via consignment); necklace & shoes, J. Crew; bag, MbMJ (via eBay)

You know when you buy something and you are sooper dooper excited to wear it. All. The. Time? I guess you could say that I feel that way about this J. Crew necklace. I’ve been kinda “over” their statement necklaces this year, but this one doesn’t feel like a big whopping cliche. It adds just the right amount of pizzazz, without being insufferable.

cute dress

In other news, this Max Studio dress is still cute. I love the silhouette, but the print is a little “blah”ย for me. I was going to write “understated”, because you know that wearing grandma’s floral couch is my preferred approach to doing prints, but you might disagree. In any event, I think this is the reason why I don’t wear this dress nearly as much as I should.

In other other news, I still have not mastered the art of the messy-but-still-office-appropriate bun. I’m going to blame this pathetisad effort on the fact that I hurt my back a couple of days before, and it affected my range of motion. Also, I worked a 12-hour day and had no time to wash my hair the night before.ย So, there you have it: all the (TMI) details you didn’t know you wanted.

  1. I think this dress is really cute—great look overall!
    I’m really glad I’m not the only one who thinks the JCrew statement necklaces as of late are gaudy and ridiculous

    • Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ I still do like a lot of their pieces; you just have to ignore the OTT ones, because there are some gems (like this necklace) hidden in there.

  2. I really like your shoes too! Actually, when I saw the first picture, I thought – nice dress, if it weren’t for the print. I have one floral dress, and it’s a couch print too, so I understand you. But the overall outfits is really nice.

  3. You hit the nail on the head in regards to J. Crew’s statement necklaces. Every time I would get one of their “SALE!” emails in my inbox, I would pop right over to check out the jewelry only to be think, “Huh?”

    You look fab by the way!

  4. I love the mod print on you, even though it’s not a couch floral, I think the print and cut of that dress are both great. Still on the fence about J. Crew’s nevklaces lately, that is def. one of the less out-there ones. I think it’s a nice contrast with that print, for sure.
