Once upon a time, I was trying to find the perfect kimono. Instead, I found the perfect shirt dress.
When you’re shopping for one thing and you come across something that’s not quite what you have in mind but you find it’s even better? Talk about an adrenaline rush! As soon as I saw this shirt dress I knew I had to have it. I couldn’t stop thinking about all the ways I could wear it! (Yes–I am sure there will be a fall edition featuring this colorful piece.) Belt it, un-belt it, buttoned, unbuttoned, jean shorts, jeans/pants, heels, boots, wedges–the options are just endless to accompany this gem.
I love a good button-up and I love a good collar. I also love a good print. This #ootd? Check, check aaaaaand check, thanks H&M. The open front, side slits and half-button down add an element of oh lala. Before I started lusting over the side slits, the abstract print is what really caught my eye–which reminds me of something from the kimono family.
Side note: Baby topknot to the rescue. (Pictured.)
Plot twist: Sometimes I wear two watches. (Also pictured.)
