Down by the Boardwalk

Down by the Boardwalk

Jack BB Dakota dress / ALDO sandals / LL Bean tote bag / Design Darling bracelet

Today I decided to center a look around a classic shirt dress. Vibrant colors are a great way to add life to your wardrobe, especially in the summer. If you're a little leery of making a statement with such attention-getting hues, try sticking to classic, clean shapes (a great decision anyways)  and it will be hard for you to go wrong. This dress is a great example. Sleeveless shirt dresses and button downs are great for when it's hot out, especially on days you know you'll be going outdoors. A preppy belt gives it shape - and how cute is this navy and white version? I also chose flat cognac sandals - great for running around in. This tortoiseshell bracelet is from the Design Darling boutique - and it really is darling. Recently I've realized how versatile tortoiseshell is - you can wear it with silvers, golds, blacks, browns, you name it. It's a great neutral. Finally, a classic boat tote is perfect for lugging around your essentials - sturdy, preppy, and monogrammable (did I just make up a word?).

Happy hump day!

  1. I love how simple and chic this is! I have a red shirt dress like this (except it's chambray) and was thinking of ways to wear it more often... I guess less is more! :)

    I really love all the outfits you put together! and I want that tortoise bracelet. Tortoise really does go great with everything!

    1. Thank you so much, Megan! Shirt dresses are great, I'm really looking into building up my collection. I really like all of your outfits too! :)

  2. Much thanks to you so much, Megan! Shirt dresses are incredible, I'm truly investigating developing my accumulation. I truly like the greater part of your outfits as well.Thank you you very much..
