This year I have fallen back in love with button down shirts. Back in 2004 I was so sick of them that I took a seven year hiatus. Call it a seven year itch if you will! But, button down shirts aren’t the only thing. The shirt dress. Well, it’s almost like just a plain shirt worn as a dress. Over the weekend I picked up one at Zara for about $25 as a test to see if I would love the style. To tell the truth in this hot weather, the more it feels like going naked without offending anyone the better.
A white button down shirt dress can be worn in any number of ways, I tried with a belt but felt it would be better just to wear a simple as possible and accessorize the hell out of it. With cuffs galore and Shutz leopard print booties, and red lipstick it’s just dressed up enough to make an “outfit” rather than a Sunday smock. Not that you won’t find me wearing a smock on Sundays. That’s my favorite thing to wear!
Yesterday I was experimenting with nail polish, below is a two toned pedicure I did myself! I tried with my fingernails, but messed it up pretty badly with all the layering of polish. Definitely more fun to do with the pedicure, this will be the first of many experiments!Wearing: Shirt Dress : Zara • Glasses:Karen Walker • Shoes: Shutz • Cuffs: H&M, Target & Erica Wiener • Clutch: Clare Vivier
