One of my major “closet goals” this season has been to procure a flattering, yet practical shirt dress and it hasn’t been as easy as you’d think. I’ve scoured the internet and even ordered a few I wasn’t totally happy with, but I think my search has finally ended with this pretty little number. Not only is it made in a light, airy seersucker fabric that’s perfect for hot days, the waist tie detail adds a little interest, while creating some nice waist definition. Overall, a win. And the price certainly doesn’t hurt either (under $60!).
I wore this to check out a possible preschool for my little one the other day (yup, he’s only 19 months right now and yup, the DC area is crazy when it comes to finding childcare). Anyway, I thought this dress went wonderfully with this fun new fold over clutch from Saddleback Leather. I love how it looks like a schoolboy’s satchel!
