lightweight shirt dress X skinnies
Taking it easy today with a lightweight shirt dress and figure hugging skinny jeans. This casual shirt dress has become one of my favorites. The calm, olive hue paired with the clean lines and loose fit allows you to feel comfortable as well as layer. This olive piece can also act as a dress and be the perfect garment for an Indian summer afternoon sipping a cup of cappuccino.
I noticed lately that the more classic designs I choose (with high quality fabric), the more compliments I get. I wore this top HERE paired with this structured blazer HERE the other day with a delicate necklace and I couldn’t hear the end of the “Oh, I love your outfit!” comments. It was one of those “less is definitely more” days. Minimalist designs in good quality will truly fill holes in your closet and those pieces are so incredibly versatile that you’ll get tons of wear out of them.
Living on a budget and the fact that shopping no longer sits on the top of the priority list have made me more conscious about my expenditures. At the end of the day I work hard for my money and don’t want to waste it on cheap stuff that will end up collecting dust or in the garbage after a few months.
