This dress arrived from The Mint Julep Boutique last week and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all. There is something so timeless about a shirt dress; I own at least four! What really drew me to this one is the trapeze cut. Trapeze / flared dresses have been on repeat in my closet this summer. I love the loose fit and they are so flattering! This dress does run large, so size down! For reference, I am wearing a medium, but definitely should have gone with a small.
I think what I love most about shirt dresses is that they have that perfect balance between business and casual. This is a dress I would feel comfortable wearing to basically any weekend event; from brunch, to meetings, to running errands. To make it even more summery and casual weekend ready I styled it with my favorite choker necklace and these gorgeous gold strappy wedges. I swear by wedges in the summertime (noone wants to be out and about in heels!) These gold ones are great because the gold basically acts as a summer time neutral, so you can wear them with almost anything!
I wore this exact outfit to meet friends for drinks on Friday night and it felt like the perfect outfit because I was comfortable all night long. I actually walked about 2 miles from where we were to where my condo is and my feet didn’t hurt at all!!
In other news, I am off to San Francisco / Palo Alto tomorrow!! I am so excited for a mini-vacation (I am going just for 4 days). A friend of mine moved there two years ago, so I am going to visit him and can’t wait to check out the city! Be sure to follow along on instagram for stories and updates on my trip. If you have any last minute suggestions of things I need to see / places I need to go, let me know in the comments below!
