Sartorial 9-5 IIX

I am so happy that I finally clicked order on this dress.

the j.crew baird mcnutt linen shirtdress

I wavered about ordering this dress for entirely too long. I am so happy that I did, and only after getting the green light from my husband, who also has several J.Crew x Baird McNutt shirts in his weekly rotation now that it is summer. As my summer wardrobe is currently held up elsewhere, I needed a few items to do both work and weekend duty. A linen shirtdress can handle both roles with grace and aplomb.

This linen dress is available in tall (standard and petite too, obviously) and as it is oversized, I chose a medium. The cut is conservative and the cuffs are sewn down, but it was made more work appropriate by wearing the slip from the dress in this post beneath it.

I found the collaboration between Roller Rabbit and Lele Sadoughi entirely too late but even after I did find it, I still paused before purchasing three of the headbands, this being one of them. At the markdown price of 99 dollars a pop, it was still too pricey per headband. Rather, I waited until even that price was reduced before pulling the trigger.

I could not pick a favorite but this one made it out of the apartment first.
