THE PERFECT SHIRTDRESS
Happy May! Can you believe how fast this year is flying by? I swear I was just in California for the birth of my fourth grandchild! Where does the time go? We had such a wet and chilly week last week but had a sunny and warm day Sunday and yesterday; however, the entire week looks like rain again. Uggghhh! I know it’s spring, but I’m so over the rain! We are leaving for Nashville tomorrow to attend one of our best friend’s funerals. I still think we will see him when we get there (such a weird thing). It’s hard to imagine that he is gone, but he is in a much better place, and life continues!
Today, I wanted to highlight what I think is the perfect shirtdress! A shirtdress is a great piece to add to a spring and summer wardrobe because they are super versatile. A shirtdress can be dressed up with heels and great accessories or dressed down with flats and a cardigan for a more casual look. They are also flattering on all body types, from petite ladies to more full-figured ones. A well-made shirtdress can last for years because the cut doesn’t really go out of style. This fabulous shirtdress from Misook is the perfect one because it has a puff-sleeve and tie waist, giving it a little more style, and it is made of wrinkle-resistant poplin (hand claps!).
Shirtdresses come in many fabrics like cotton, silk, rayon, linen, and polyester. I prefer them in cotton, but it’s really a personal preference. I paired my favorite Bene silver handbag and my Dior slides for a casual look, but I have also worn this shoe with the dress as well.
I also wanted to show you all this great tote bag. It’s from a brand called LuMaMi. All of their bags are made in Mexico from recycled plastic and take around sixteen hours to weave. They are super sturdy and wipe off easily, making them the perfect beach or tote. They make great gifts! How cute to give it as a grad gift with a monogrammed beach towel and sunscreen? This one is my second one, and I love them!
Today is a shoot day (weather permitting), and running lots of errands before we head out tomorrow. I hope you have a great Tuesday!
Stay well and Be Safe! xx
