White Shirt Dress for Work, Travel and Play

White Shirt Dress for Work and Play

I’m all about pieces that you can wear multiple ways. Like, almost exclusively. I really don’t invest in items of clothing unless I can imagine at least a few outfit ideas. I like to put my clothes to work. I’ve messed up if I find myself donating or selling them after six months because I didn’t use them enough. I was pleased to find this sleeveless shirt dress in my mailbox a few weeks back. It arrived along with other items from Zan Style.┬áTo see two other looks from Zan Style, click here and here.

How I Wore it for Play

I wore the dress first during my trip to Harrisonburg. It was a hot day, even in the mountains of Virginia. The shirt dress was breezy and light. I just had to keep an eye on my red wine drinking from Purple Wolf Vineyards. Oh, and there was lavender ice cream, too. I came out unscathed, though!

The trip required some professional networking and though I wouldn’t wear this to an office, I still felt conservative and put together enough to meet people who may lead to great work opportunities.

Like I said earlier, it was hot. I grabbed my sunhat to protect my face and my chambray shirt to throw on if I went inside. These booties haven’t really left my feet since I got them. Mod & Soul strikes again. They were the perfect travel footwear to pair with this white shirt dress.

How I will Wear it for Work

I imagine this so many ways. For colder days, I’ll rock them with knee high boots and a long coat. For more casual days, I would rock it with a long cardigan and a scarf or statement necklace. I could wear that look with a pair of work wedges or office appropriate booties.

Fall layering tip: keep you hair off your shoulders! The more layers you pile on, the less natural your hair will look down. It sticks to your clothes an creates an unflattering silhouette. Show off that dainty neck as much as you can by wearing your hair up.
