I ordered this shirt dress from Missguided as I lay sunburnt on my bed waiting for the aloe on my back to dry. Sun protection for the next beach adventure was top of my mine, for obvious reasons. I loved the idea of lightweight fabric, long sleeves and this classic stripe. So I ordered the largest size on offer, the 24, and waited for my parcel to arrive.
And when it did I was glad that all 178cms of me had planned to wear it to the beach because it was SHORT. Maybe because another size larger would’ve helped, but yes, short. Not to be persuaded to return them, I immediately thought I’ll wear it over my togs (you know, swimmers) in summer, and over jeans in winter. It’s a double win. Because a shirt dress over jeans is ALWAYS a win. Trust me on that.
Especially if you are somewhat of an Amazon-sized woman and things are never really long enough to make appropriate attire. I use this idea all the time because long line top are ridiculously hard to find and I like the length so I have the freedom to move about without feeling like I have to pull my shirt down all the time? You get that right? The length of a shirt dress is a what makes it so good for this sort of look.
Anyway, you don’t need me to sell you on it, you’re probably on board already. And if not, let’s look at these super cute photos Mr Suger grabbed for me the other week (it’s taken me a while to get organised and post it) as we jumped in the car for another weekend adventure. Jeans, shirt dress, stacked heels is weekend awesome guaranteed. Fool proof.
And you know what isn’t fool proof? Photos in the wind! Gosh but LOL. Right?
