How to wear a Shirtdress



Last night was a blast!
 I spent the evening with my oldest daughter at the One Direction concert at Ohio Stadium.  Imagine a stadium full of screaming tweens, teens, and adults.  It was LOUD! The energy was fun and we were up dancing the entire show!  Have you seen any great concerts lately?


While on our vacation through Michigan, we shopped many boutiques.  I was on the lookout for pieces that could work now through Fall.  This olive utility dress was a great find!  There is a very similar dress at Nordstrom.  I debated posting this as it's similar to the dress Betsy wore back in this post.  But the endless options for how this shirtdress could be worn through Fall just had to be shared with you all!

1. Layer a pattern shirt underneath to give some debth.  I'm picturing a striped or plaid shirt underneath.
2. Layer a lace slip underneath so that the lace peeks out along the trim.
3. Throw on a pair of open toe booties.
4. Wear a pair of knee-high boots.
5. Wear a fur vest over the dress.  This vest from Chicwish is my favorite.
6. Tie a denim shirt around your waist for a casual look.
7. Wear an ever-famous blanket scarf over your shoulders and belt it at the waist.  
8. Add a belt.  Animal print, navy, pink...
9. Wear a pullover sweater over your shirtdress.
10. Wear it with sneakers (love) for a chic laid back look.








These pictures were taken in Frankenmuth on our vacation through Michigan.  It is a German resort town.  There is plenty of shopping, we spent time at the pool and watersides, and enjoyed a family-style dinner with authentic german food.  
No trip through Frankenmuth would be complete without a stop at Bronner's.  Have you heard of Bronner's Christmas Store?  It is the world's largest Christmas store!  It's HUGE!  Every type of ornament and decoration can be found.  You can also shop their store online.

  3. I love that shirtdress, so cool and I truly think it can translate into all seasons. A shirtdress and a wrap dress are my two most favorite styles of dresses. I need/want an olive or camo shirtdress. Great tips, too, Katey. =)
