Last weekend my family headed to the mall together for the first time in months. My boys desperately needed sneakers that didn’t have huge holes in them. Cheap Target shoes just aren’t holding up under their hard play anymore. Stride Rite is one of the only stores that fits the bill.
We had a little extra time so I requested a stop at the J. Crew Factory Store to search for shorts. All of my most favorite shorts and capris came from that store but they are all slightly too big now. J. Crew chino shorts are infinitely wash and wearable.
While I was there I stumbled across a little piece of gold on the clearance rack…two Sanur dresses, one in coral and one in dark grey. I snatched the coral one up immediately because I already bought a floral J. Crew Sanur dress
last year and I know how amazing and hard to find they are.
What’s so special about this dress? It’s ease of use. The Sanur is made of thick stretch fabric and can be worn three different ways
: tea length strapless dress, shorter swing dress or top, or as a longer skirt. It can be thrown into a weekend bag without wrinkling and paired with all sorts of accessories or jackets for lots of looks.
Here’s the black floral one I bought last year. After I discovered how much I loved it, I searched for other colors online and there were none.
Fast forward to last week when I found the Sanur dresses for a mere $16. Major score. I’m still on a super tight budget so I only bought the coral one. Now I’m kicking myself for not buying the gray one, especially after seeing this way to wear it
on another blog.
So here’s how I wore it this past weekend. This was a date with my husband for our anniversary. I had a white denim jacket to wear over it in the cold restaurant and matching shoes I bought long ago at Kohl’s on clearance. The necklace is from World Vision, believe it or not, handmade in Thailand and the profits go to help free women and children from poverty.
So if you’re inclined, I see the coral one is still available online for dirt cheap. Don’t delay.
