Y’all, I am really excited to transition to my warmer-weather outfits. As much as I live in my jeans, just throwing on a dress is VERY EASY and you look like you made an effort, even if in fact you were being quite lazy. I wore this dress all last summer, for example, and I am pleased that J.Crew is actually making it again this season. It’s on sale now, and I believe the size options have improved since last year, too. I also wore this one a lot -- to the point that the hem is falling out now and I have to mend it — and it’s great because you really can just shove it in the corner of a bag and it does not wrinkle. Most importantly: I bought this dress last year — it has sunglasses on it!!!! — and haven’t even worn it yet, so get ready for my sunglasses dress, Los Angeles. I could really, REALLY shop for cute spring dresses — the CSD — for hours at a time.

But I also have a book deadline, so this is going to have to do:

FYI: GFY uses affiliate links where available, which means we get a tiny bonus if you get yourself something new. I can assure you that all dresses were personally chosen by me while I sat around drinking water and watching basketball.
