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!

Ooh you’re so right! The bag totally reminds me of Pinocchio’s school book belt, haha. But way more chic of course. And I love the tie on that dress.

Yes, you definitely found the perfect one E.! It’s so pretty and flattering, and with an original touch with that bow tied at the front. Love the satchel as well, sleek and fun at the same time! I bet you were the most stylish mum around the place 🙂
Hope you have a great week, pretty lady Xx
