I have a thing for shirt dresses. Any one with me? I find myself drawn to them all of the time! I think it’s due to the fact that they’re so easy to dress up or dress down. Also, shirt dresses seem so pulled together to me. As in, I don’t feel like I have to do a lot with my look to make it seem complete when wearing a shirt dress. It seems just throwing on a pair of flats or wedges and grabbing a cute bag is good enough. 

With today’s look, I had to add a jacket though due to the slightly cooler temps we’ve been experiencing. It seemed as though Summer was well on it’s way to arriving and staying but last weekend all of that changed! So I of course threw on my go to jacket. Seriously, this utility jacket is perfect for a light layer.

Anyways, I believe shirt dresses are great for weekend life! They’re easy, comfortable, and like I said above, make you look pulled together with not a lot of effort. And let’s be honest, who wants to put in a lot of effort on the weekends when they’ve been doing so all week for work?! 

My go to neutral cross body is sold out but the same brand has a super similar one this season. I actually really love the shape of the new one. It’s a little more chic in my opinion. For me, cross body bags were also made for weekend life. For all the errands you’re running and shopping, it’s nice to have your hands free! 

Are you planning to do any shopping this weekend? I am! I’m headed out of town next week and need to pick up some items for that trip. Super excited to get away for a few days…even though it’s kind of for work, I’ll still take it!
