J.Crew Dropwaist Silk Houndstooth Dress

Hi friends! I hope your week is going well. I’ve actually been extremely under the weather the last few days, so please forgive the brevity of this post. However, I did want to be sure to share this wonderful dress with you…

At less than $100, this dropwaist silk houndstooth dress has become a surprising holiday favorite! Style this dress with a turtleneck, over-the-knee boots, and a chunky scarf for a look that’s sure to put a smile on your face and those around you. I’ve had fun wearing the look for both a fun day full of errands and lunch with a friend, as well as to a more casual holiday party.

Note that right now the dress is on sale at J.Crew for 40% off using code “HOLIDAY”. If your size happens to be sold out at J.Crew, don’t fear! The same dress is available at Nordstrom as well.

And while my unique, chunky scarf from Delpozo is sold out, I’ve linked to a number of other lovely scarf options that would compliment this dress wonderfully. In fact, scroll to the bottom of this article to shop the entire look with multiple options for each piece. Keep scrolling for all the details…

    Hi Carrie,
    I really love that dress. I could see myself wearing this to work with a turtleneck. Will check it out on the Nordstrom site.

    Did you announce the winners of your amazing big giveaway yet?


    1. Carrie says:

      Yes! It would work great for that.

      I haven’t yet… So sorry. Will do so today. I have been pretty much bedridden with a stomach bug the last few days. It’s had me totally out of commission.

      Thanks for your patience and support.
