Pair them with your wide leg linen pants, or chino shorts.

Puff-Sleeve Smocked-Waist Midi Dress 

I like the idea of an easy to throw-on dress that looks feminine and polished. And I love the navy blue dot print.

Here on the East Coast, we have plenty of summers left. Wear this with simple flat slides and take it into September with sneakers.

Available in classic, petite, and tall sizes in XXS – XL.

If you love pajamas as much as I do you might love this line-cotton blend set. They are perfect for summer.

Skip the white option as it’s totally see-through, but in blue they are lovely. 

These are in my cart for $19.50.

Available in XS- 3X.

Gauze Popover Top

Gauze Popover Top 

You might remember seeing this Gauze Popover Top several times here on The Well Dressed Life. 

It was wildly popular in the late spring, and never went on sale. 

They are still being stingy with the sale, but a few of the colors are marked down. 

Available in XS – 3X. See how we styled it three ways here. 

Straw Tote

This puffed-sleeve top won’t be for everyone, but I think the print is so sweet. 

Love how it looks styled with navy shorts, or white slim bottoms. 

Available in sizes XXS – 3X. Originally priced at $128, which is silly but with 70% off it’s a much more reasonable $35. 

Double Breasted Raincoat

Hi Megan, I purchased the cashmere wrap this Christmas. I’ve always washed my cashmere ( cold water and lay flat to dry) from J.Crew and other companies, so I didn’t think twice about washing this wrap. It shrunk by 50% and no amount of stretching has brought it back to its original size. If anyone purchases, be sure to dry clean to keep the original shape. I’ve decided that Naadam is better for cashmere than J.Crew. I feel their quality has declined over the past 5-7 years and I’ve been a J.Crew fan since the late 80’s.

@ Megan, I'm looking for one basic black blazer to add to my wardrobe. Of all the ones you have recommended which would be your top choice? I tried the Madewell and not a fan of the double breasted for my shape.
