Ciao, Fashion Friends! Ciao!
Spelled it right this time. Ciao, that is.
But it doesn’t look right.
I know it is Italian but still…I like my creative spelling better…Chao!
This gal has been too busy for her own liking.
I will have worked three days this week and volunteered half of both of the other two days.
Come pay day, I am going to be a happy camper but my feet are tired! Not complaining, though, because I am looking forward to a mani-pedi, and maybe revisiting that cute duster at Loft Outlet.
I won’t keep you but just wanted to share a shirt dress look that I wore to sub at Crosby elementary yesterday. Thank you, Rosa, for inviting me back to your library. We have been having very humid days during this, our “monsoon” season in far west Texas. The evaporative cooling at Crosby was not. Not evaporating nor cooling. So it was sticky but this dress was a good choice for the day. The roll tab sleeves helped to keep me cooler and the light-weight fabric was a blessing.
I found the dress on the clearance rack at our Tommy Hilfiger Outlet store, (exact, similar). It has a small, white polka dot print and the TH logo embroidered in white stitching. The dress was reduced 70%, originally around $69.00 but on sale for $21.00. I had a little coupon for 15% off and wound up paying a little more than $17.00.
I paired it with my Cavenders Corral Circle G Women’s boots (exact). And I felt like a put together cowgirl!
Once I got the floor fans on and the doors open, I had a nice cross breeze going, making it very pleasant in the library.
I was ready to get my giddy up.
My dress was so comfy, I didn’t even change when I got home. Did kick off my boots, though.
I am seeing a lot of shirt dresses being shown for fall on Pinterest and in the stores where I shop (can you say Loft Outlet?). I just received the shopping list for the Get Your Pretty On Fall Style 2015 Challenge and Alison suggests a print shirt dress as one of the essential fall pieces.
Here is the plaid shirt dress she featured on her blog.
Love those little fringe booties. I think they would look pretty cute with my shirt dress, too. And Alison’s accessories are always spot on, the cross-body bag, statement watch and long necklace.
But I think the accessory I “wore” with my shirt dress is pretty special, too.
Isn’t that a cute cross?
It was a special (but unnecessary) “thank you” from my friend Martha after I volunteered in her library last week. I should have found a way to wear it as a statement necklace around my neck! I love the statement it makes.
Thank YOU, Martha.
Have you spotted shirt dresses on blogs you follow, Pinterest, or in stores (Loft Outlet) near you? I think I can pair my dress with a cardigan and tights and wear it on into fall. And I got this little cutie in my email today. Thought I’d share.
And Loft is having a FLASH sale.
I bought this denim swing shirt dress before it went on sale (exact). Fool me once, shame on you, Loft. Fool me twice, shame on me. I should have known it would go on sale. And it is. Now $69.88 with 40% taken off right now for the sale, making it around $40.00. The fabric is pretty, has a little sheen to it. Runs big so you can wear a smaller size, girls! Gotta love that Loft. Better than Weight Watchers.
If you have a shirt dress look you would like to share, please let me know.
Please stop by their blogs to see what they are styling for today.
PC is home, Papa John’s cooked dinner and we are ready for some football.
Here we go!
Hugs and kisses,
