Tunic Dress and Floppy Hat

Went out shopping today at my favorite local mall – Easton  Town Center – and hit up the place where I just happened to buy this chambray dress a couple of years ago.  This pullover tunic dress has camp shirt sleeves but I prefer wearing it unbuttoned and 3/4 length.  This is a versatile dress because besides having pockets, and you know how I am about pockets, it can be worn as a dress or as a tunic over leggings or pants.  And it is floppy hat season.  This one protects my face and back of neck from the hot sun and packs well.

Shift dress with denim jacket

This is an old short sleeved shift dress with pockets (I love all things with pockets! even my wedding dress had pockets) that I wore with a denim jacket.  It is a very comfortable slip over your head style.  At first I was concerned about how short it was but with encouragement from the spouse I wear it with chunky heels, wedges or sandals confidently and comfortably.

Brunch in Style

Let me sing the praises of the shift dress.  It is one of those timeless items that every woman should have in her closet.  They can hide a multitude of things you may want hidden but still be stylish.  And in the case of going out to an Easter brunch as I was this day, you can eat to your hearts content without popping any buttons, loosening belts or having regrets about having worn constrictive undergarments 😉

By the way…never pose under a flowering Bradford Pear tree.  They look pretty but do they ever stink!

Until next time ♥
