Classic Shirtdress

I would consider myself a pretty tough judge when it comes to shirtdresses. I have tried on many and own quite a lot. They’re some of my favorite things to wear and I have yet to get sick of them. This one is unlike any I own in that it has a very full and long skirt. It has a classic, ladylike chicness. I honestly wish I could wear something like this every day.

Classic Navy Shirtdress

I love when dresses come with belts so you can tie it as tight or loose as you need for a great fit. They show the belt in a big bow, but I think it looks much sleeker just tied in a knot. You can also swap out the sash for one of your own belts. I think a thick brown leather belt would look gorgeous here.

I’m just under 5’6″ and I’d say that I probably couldn’t go any longer with the dress before I was absolutely swimming in it. Luckily though, it comes in petite sizes too!

Monogrammed Wicker Bag

Ever since I got this little bag, I’ve been carrying it as often as I can. I wear a lot of navy and white, so it’s a frequent pick for me.

I had planned on wearing a wedge or a small heel with the dress… but honestly? There’s nothing more comfortable than my ballet flats for walking around in the city.

Love how you styled this with flats! The biggest reason I don’t wear dresses like this very often is that I always feel like I need to wear them with heels or wedges…which I’m rarely in the mood to deal with! Outfit looks great!

I absolutely love a shirt dress too (especially white or blue or a striped combination of the two) but especially adore a midi-length version this season so definitely going to hunt down this one. Just love this whole look on you; so chic and classic!

My mom & I were just chatting about dresses just like this one the other day and how it had been SO long since we’d seen a shirtdress with a full skirt…well, now I know where to buy a new one!

This dress is gorgeous on you! I think the tough thing about shirtdresses is making sure they don’t make you look too dowdy. This one is definitely working for you!
