30 For 30: #20 & #21

I adore this shirt dress. It’s difficult to see in the photo but it’s a tapestry type of linen fabric. It’s perfect in the summer or in the winter – cool and warm. It has buttons that button down the front to the waist line.

I almost never wear it. Not because I don’t love it but what you see in the photo is just about the only way I have styled it. I have tried layering shirts and the like over it and it just makes it clumsy and funny looking. Too much fabric I think. There isn’t much to be done for putting something under it. So what else to do with it? Any suggestions?

This was another easy traveling set. And I actually like driving in these pumps! I think they happen to be the perfect height for it.
