Summer Shirtdress in September

I'm just as shocked as everyone else that it is September. Where'd summer go? While I'm noticing more dead leaves on the ground the temps have not cooled off. Thankfully, I'll be sweaty glowing for at least the next week with temps in the 90s. I do not mind at all.

shirtdress style ideas

I was able to unearth my mini shirtdress in one of the many boxes. Haven't located an iron though as you can plainly see.  It was just so right for today. Nothing special going on. Completely casual, simple, and all cotton to absorb some of this "glow".

This dress is definitely made for a junior's shape so my 40 year old curves give it a completely different look then the teenager who probably donated it to the thrift store.

It's ok to abandon rules and fashion restrictions for what feels good. No white after Labor Day. My legs are too short for long skirts. I'm too big to wear prints.

Wear it all proudly and you'll look great!

I even broke out the Toms with the pillowy soft leather footbed to keep my feet from sloshing about. They also keep my look from going sexpot level given the short length of the shirt...errr..dress. This is my second experiment with stripes and florals. I'm surprised by how much I like the look of it. It's a subtle print mixing. I prefer more unconventional mixing like sequins and baroque.

I'm actually not too cool for school in my vintage sunglasses. They are pretty awesome with the oversized shape and partial cat eye of the frame but I'm sure there's a sliding makeup mess under them so I opted to keep them on.

Have you moved on to fall or are you still in summer clothes?

I'm still loving Summer and you look relaxed and comfy. So you also like Beres Hammond? He is my all time favorite and one of my many loves. Enjoy your new town.

We've been in the high 80s/low 90s the last week and a half, so I'm still in summer clothes.
Love the shoes!

I'm still in summerwear for the most part. It's been cooler in the mornings but not enough to pull out a jacket just yet.
