How to style a shirt dress with jeans.

how to style a shirt dress

Hi there friends! We all know how much I like to style different things in my closet. And today I am sharing another way I style a button down shirt dress with jeans. I love this basic black button down shirt dress from White House/Black Market. I have been had this dress for a long time and I still love wearing it. Just like a pencil skirt these are classic pieces. They get updated sure but they are always around.

So how to style the dress, easy. Take a button down shirt dress and pair with some flares with a chunky heel. Or even a pair of flatforms. I like to unbutton the bottom  of the dress to about right at the button on my jeans. The leave a few buttons on the top unbuttoned. Or you can button those all the way up. Then grab a great bag like this one I have from Express in the quilted style. Much like the Classic flap bag.

White house black market dress express flaresSO really quick, let us talk about my clumsy self. We all know I have an affinity for spilling coffee on myself. I am a coffee spilling efficient klutz of a woman. Seriously I can not make it one day without spilling that beautiful caffeine juice. Coffee so strong you will grow a beard even Gimli would be proud of! (just kidding it isn’t THAT strong.)Anyways, I hurt myself. I busted my own lip by being a massive dork, and instead of cutting a plasit case holding my razor blades I ripped it open and busted the lip that I had burnt on dinner previously. Thus busting it open. Yeah, lots of fun blood and a massive bruise. So, that is one of the reasons I have been sans pictures really or  covering the bottom of my face,because OUCH. And trying to put lip stick on it burned like hell, and so I had to pull it off thus making my lip bleed out again. YAY! This goes right along with the bruise from smacking my head on the top of the car when I was putting my little in his car seat. I saw stars, Swear to gawd I saw stars!

    Super cute! I really like how you have part of the shirt unbuttoned, I haven’t done that. I do sometimes just button the middle buttons if I have a cardi on underneath.
