new jcrew terra dress

Before the new dress, I have my outfit from yesterday...

I like the color of this banana republic skirt, but every time I wear it I feel like a little school girl because of the pleats and its a little longer in length than most of my other skirts... I get a lot of use out of it though, I just wish it was a pencil skirt instead! I love the print on the primrose cardi and of course I'm a sucker for all jcrew printed cardis.... I paired it with the lavender frances cami today, but I'm struggling as to what other colors I can pair under the cardi...

Skirt: Banana Repulic
Sweater: Jcrew Primrose Cardigan
Cami: Jcrew Frances Cami

Now on to the dress!!

I fell in love with this dress when I first saw it on the website... I was going to hold off on getting it, but I wanted to reward myself for a job well done at work this past week!

The dress is a silk and wool blend and such a gorgeous/chic print in real life! I ordered my normal dress size in jcrew, a 0, and the fit is just right. It's a little big in the waist area, which is a problem I usually run into with jcrew dresses, but a belt fixes that problem easily. I'm 5'7" and the dress hit a little bit above my knee, plus it has pockets!

I wore the dress with a blazer today because I had another presentation to make, but imagine wearing it belted with a long, black cardi in the future. I also can't wait to pair it with tights once the weather starts getting cooler.

Here's some more detailed pics of the dress...
