a shirt dress and a scarf two ways

If you have followed me for a while, you know how much I appreciate versatile clothing, in particular shirt dresses. You can style a shirt dress in the most different ways, like I showed it HERE. Plus they are so comfortable. I’ve been loving this red, A-line dress! It is comfortable yet totally acceptable for the office.

the shirt dress I styled today is going to be one of my all time favorite staple and here’s why:

  1. I absolutely love the fabric combination! The front of the dress is 100% linen knit, while the back and the sleeves are made out of 60% cotton and 40% modal rayon knit. This dress feels incredibly good on my skin and it shows so much quality and thought-through design.
  2. The paisley embroidery on the front: This element elevates this piece; the embroidery makes the dress outstanding while maintaining that classic, casual and comfortable flare.
  3. It’s versatile. Whether you wear this shirt dress by itself, with a belt or layer it over skinny jeans or leggings, anything works. The end result is an effortless and chic look. This dress comes in deep blue as well.

This island blue print scarf complements both outfits perfectly and shows what a difference those little details can make. In the first outfit I just added the scarf to my clutch as a colorful finishing. In the second look, I used the same scarf as a belt. I liked how the colorful belt broke up the monochromatic color of the look and added some shape and a bit of a flirty flare to the outfit.

side note: nice things about being pregnant…

  1. My husband stares at me and he is all smiles looking at his wifey walking around with a bump.
  2. I get a pass on a lot of things: Hubby scrubs the bathtub for me and basically does any housework I ask him to do.
  3. I enjoy my pregnancy. I have fun styling my bump, my energy level is back to normal and I feel comfortable for the most part.

Thank you so much for visiting! I wish you all a wonderful day!
