Shirt dress

Does anyone else feel like last weekend was about a million years ago? Because I'm definitely ready for this one to start. Which I will do promptly after work when I plan on venturing to Old Navy to check out these striped shorts, and these printed capris. I really hope I end up buying them.

Lately I feel like when I intend on getting something specific, it doesn't work out. Case and point, my recent splurge on a pair of Ray-Ban Sunglasses that I'm sending back because they feel too loose.

It's so annoying when I get my heart set on something only for it not to work out. (In my closet, and in my life.)

  1. love how you styled the dress :)


  2. Gorgeous outfit! Hope you have a fabulous weekend! xo

  3. This is a great dress on you. The color is really pretty.

  4. Both those shorts and pants are really cute- I hope they work out too! I think I've finally got a tiny bit of money for shopping- time to make a list this weekend of things I need :)

  5. It's just such a terrible feeling when things you really, really want just don't come together. But, you look stunning in this dress so it's not all bad!

  6. That shirt dress is so cute on you - I love the hem!

  7. Good luck at Old Navy, hope you end up getting some fun things! That dress looks great on you!

  8. Bummer the sunnies didn't work out. But you do look great in the shirt dress! Have a great weekend Lydia!

  11. Love this outfit!!
    And POOP! That stinks about the Ray-Bans....the same thing happened to me with a Burberry sweater and Valentino Pumps XD And in life is even worse... *sigh*

  12. YES last weekend was a million years ago. Also, I'm sorry that your Ray-Bans didn't work! Did you try bending them? When I got a pair, I thought they were too loose but then my dad bent the middle and sides and they're perfect now. Might want to try that before you send them back.

    Have fun with your trip to Old Navy!! I'm sure you'll find some things. I was there just on Tuesday and ended up getting two really cute sweaters and I was just like wow Old Navy, way to step up yer game!

    Your shirt dress is cute. And with the cognac and the leopard and the gold, it's even more perfect. Seriously, can you ever go wrong with navy and gold?

  13. I have plans after work too and they include the mall :)
    You look lovely in that blue dress.

  14. So pretty! I have a totally obsession with shirt dresses, haha! They're so chic and easy to style! Love this look!

  15. Man we are on a twinsie roll Lydia. I think this is the second time in like two weeks where we end up wearing similar things on the same day. Weird . . .

    I love this shirt dress on you and the hat is a great addition.

    I hope you find what you seek at Old Navy and have a great weekend!

  16. That seems to have been my summer list. I can't find a chambray/denim shirt for the life of me to try on (I had bought one last year online and it ended up being too short on me which NEVER happens and it was final sale =()
    So I thought trying one on first would be a good idea. I also have not found the sweet flowy white dress I've been looking for. But last week my luck changed in finding wonderful sweaters to replace my old, tight, and baggy ones. So hopefully your luck changes and you find those shorts! Because I really like them... might need to get some....

    Have a good weekend!!!

  17. I have several pairs of sunglasses that I don't use because they're too big! The pair that fits best on me is from Target. Good luck with your shopping!

  18. super cute dress! love the sandals...haven't worn mine in a while!


  19. I'll cross my fingers for you on your Old Navy trip!! I want to make a trip there myself, I keep seeing lots of things I want.
    By the way, that dress is fantastic! I love the little tiers at the bottom!

  20. I love the layering on the bottom of that dress!

    I hate it when I get all hyped up about a piece of clothing and then it doesn't work out - it's even worse if it's something I've ordered online, and then I have a whole week to wait while it's being shipped to me, and I can't stop thinking about how perfect it's going to be, and then it arrives and it doesn't fit. Blergh.

  21. I feel the same way, this was such a LONG week. You look simply adorable in this outfit! Enjoy your weekend! :)

  22. That dress is amazing. Maybe one of my favourites ever.

  23. the same thing happens to me too. I go into a store with a plan to buy like a pair of pants and when the pants or whatever dont fit, etc I end up leaving the store with the most random crap to make up for the pant debacle.

  24. you look so great :)

    please visit my blog:

  25. I've been reading your blog since before I had my own.I saw these shoes and immediately thought of you! AND they are on sale, your style all the way!


    I'd love to know what you think.

  26. Yeah, this week felt especially long to me too. I am beyond thrilled to be home, relaxing right now.

    Lovely shirt dress!

  27. saw those shorts yesterday on instagram and feel in love with them
    great detail on the bottom of this dress

  28. i know what you mean about being set on something and having it not work out. :/ but maybe those things just weren't meant to be? anyways, i hope you have a happy weekend! :D

  29. This is a cool shirt dress! I love that it's a knit.

    Lately I've only been shopping for specific things... and not getting them because they don't work. I hardly bought anything all summer. I guess I should just go shopping with only a vague idea of what I'm looking for, haha.

  30. I love dresses like that!!! Have a nice weekend!

  31. Love your shirt dress! Looks amazing on you (and the hat too)! xo akiko

  34. That is a beautiful dress on you :)

    Hope the new purchases you have lined up work out, shame about the glasses!

  35. The weekend feels like the last weekend we had was about a billion years ago. I don't understand how or why but you are completely correct!

  36. Love the hem of your dress.
    If things don't work out the way I'd hoped it would It makes me sad for a while. Hope you find one that fits.

  37. love your dress! Hey, if you want, check out my blog

  38. Sometimes I feel a little relieved when I take something that doesn't fit or wasn't as great as I anticipated back. It's like I had the fun of shopping, but fluffed my wallet back out, too :P

    Love this simple shirt dress on you. I'm looking to thrift one suitable for work, although I love running around in the Old Navy one I thrifted for $1.99. But it's too short for the office :(

  39. Love your dress lady! It works so nicely with your sandals and hat. Sorry your sunglasses didn't work out for you. It is challenging when the vision you have for something don't match up to reality. I'm sure we can all relate to that.

  40. I love this simple look, especially the dress and sandals combo. Love me some animal print. It always gives things that extra edge. I hope your trip to ON worked out!

  41. Love the cool and casual vibe of this dress and it looks amazing with the fedora!

  44. Don't worry! I get disappointed so much by items I see or buy online sometimes. It's a bit of a downer, but sometimes it works out for the best! Anyways, I love your hat and this shirtdress! You look so adorable.

  45. so jealous of this adorable look! I need this dress!!


  46. the shirt dress looks great on you!

  47. I really like this outfit on you! Perfect look for summer plus you have been really making me jealous of your hat collection.
