Summer Style Series: The Shirtdress

For the next couple Mondays, I’ll be featuring a really good and affordable summer piece. I want to highlight a few key products that have ended up becoming summer staples for me that I can’t live without. My Summer Style Series will run through the end of August and I’m starting out with this amazing shirt dress that I snagged for fifty bucks.

I’d been eyeing shirt dresses for awhile, but could not find one that wasn’t completely shapeless and frumpy. This Madewell Shirtdress is perfect. It’s comfortable, not see-through, and looks great with a mule or flats alike. It’s been great for late spring into summer and one of my favorites dresses to wear on summer nights. It’s on sale and is easily one of the best dresses that I’ve bought this season…

I added a few of my favorite gold jewelry and this beaded clutch. The clutch was on major sale at Anthropologie and sold out fast, but I linked a few others that I love just as much…

Shirt Dress: Madewell (similar options below) / Mules: Vince / Sunglasses: Woodzee c/o (see the post) / Hat: J.Crew / Clutch: Anthropologie (also love this one)

I could go on and on about how much I love this shirt dress…I also plan on wearing it this fall and winter with boots and a sweater combo. If your size isn’t available in my dress, don’t stress. I’ve linked a few others that are also pretty awesome and really affordable.

Be sure to swing by next Monday for the second installment of my Summer Style Series. I’ll also be doing a post this week on the best of what’s left of the Nordstrom Sale. If you haven’t started shopping the sale yet—you don’t want to miss this post.

  2. When I'm not in my work uniform, shirt dresses are life for these super hot summer temps. I absolutely LOVE this one. Too bad I missed it in my size. Madewell is always hitting home runs.
