Shirt dresses are something you either love or hate and in the case of this linen one from Anthropologie it is love. It’s great for this hot weather plus it has pockets! I paired it with a pair of old Steve Madden wedges which have and continue to serve me well and my Louis Vuitton bag. But I will add these caveats about the dress: It’s linen so it wrinkles. The cut is a little wonky around the bust and arms and by that I mean if it fits your bust then it becomes a bit gappy around the arms and if it looks good around the arms then you get the dreaded button gap in the front right across the girls. We all know how to handle that, right 😉
The dress color is called raspberry which is one of those colors that depending on the lighting can be either a hot pink or reddish looking as you can see from the photos. It’s true color is closest to the hot pink(ish).
Well since I’m here at the mall I might as well go in and see what they’ve got on sale, right?
Until next time ♥
Dress – Anthropologie here comes in blue and a great white print
Cooler temperatures and overcast skies meant bring the sweaters back out. For those not familiar with the wildly famous British sci-fi television series Doctor Who, here is something to catch you up on it. I have been a loyal fan (aka Whovian) for a very long time now and when they came out with clothing it was a given that I had to have them! I purchased quite a few things Doctor Who besides this sweater at Hot Topic that day. On a side note, I’ve actually met five of the stars that have been on the show – happy fangirl 🙂
To compliment the sweater I wore a white button down shirt underneath, threw on a pair of flared jeans, some wedges and finally an umbrella as it started to rain. That’s spring for you!
Overalls on adult women is a look that you either love or you don’t. I’ve had a few pair in my time but this style is a first for me. These Flea Market Flares from Madewell are as their name states – flares! And unlike the old overalls from the past, these are cut to hug a woman’s curves; not too tight not too loose. I love the silhouette these overalls create.
The amount of flare is just right for me but even at my average height, I have to wear wedges with these overalls else they will drag the ground. I could have them hemmed but that would take away part of the flare which kind of defeats the purpose, right? So with these it’s wedges or platforms for footwear. We were heading out on a “date” so instead of going casual with a tee shirt, I dressed the look up a bit with a white fitted mans shirt; sleeves rolled up and unbuttoned just so. And I’m almost never without my Fitbit HR on my wrist. Steps count no matter where I’m stepping to.
Until next time ♥
