Something About a Shirt Dress

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel ultra business-y when they wear a shirt dress? Something about the streamlined shape and collared look always makes me feel much more like a powerhouse than I actually am:).

I’m a fan of the slim look of a shirt dress sans belt, but it never hurts to add a feminine flair to any outfit. The best thing about a braided belt is that it’s so incredibly adjustable for wherever on your waist you want to wear it. I don’t often wear belts around my hip, but I like having the ability if I so chose to on a pair of jeans. Braided belts also allow room to adjust for that after-meal belly, which is always a plus!

Seeing as how half of my outfit is from Old Navy, it’s fitting to mention that today is the last day to use Super Cash! If you sign up for Old Navy emails, you should have it in your inbox. Any excuse for more ON gear is a-ok with me, and this coupon is basically 40% off your entire purchase (once you hit the specific price points). Spending $30 sounds much more reasonable than $50, right?;) Add in a pair of their $2.50 flip-flops, and you can get the dress from this post for $15!!

    I love this shirtdress and how you belted it! And it such a great deal!

      Thank you, Mary!

  • I’ve been totally into shirtdresses lately but I don’t actually own any…so I think I need to get shopping!

    • Truth be told- I always have to wear a long tank top under cause I’m paranoid that a button will come undone and some middle schooler will get a look at something I don’t want them to! I tend to save them for days when I have meetings or less movement:)

  • I feel the same way–I always feel so put-together every time I wear a shirtdress! This is a great one too; Old Navy has been killing it lately with their dresses. Thanks for the reminder about the Super Cash too, I need to use mine!

    • I don’t think I realized how much Old Navy I wore, until I started noticing that at least half of my outfit every single day is from there….I think I have a problem 😉 🙂

    I must have missed/not seen this shirtdress at Old Navy. I love shirtdresses and I don’t really see them as stiff. I think they are quite versatile and can be dressed down or up/ I have spent so much money and my ON cash at Old Navy lately. I got a few things from your list of favorites already but I need all those cute shoes!
