I love shirt dresses. Whether it’s a t-shirt or a button down, it’s just so effortless. I’ve worn this one to work a few times and out with a leather jacket and OTK boots. It looks SO cute belted to show off your figure a little more, also. The lace on the shoulders adds a beautiful feminine touch. The best part of this dress, besides wearing it again and again, is that it’s just a little over $50.
My favorite way to style a shirt dress for Spring is with white accessories. Depending on the style, they look so cute with a jacket thrown over or even tied around your waist. If you’re wearing a patterned shirt dress like this one, I’d keep the accessories somewhat minimal. If you are styling a solid shirt dress or tshirt dress, I would dress it up with a statement necklace. I wore heels, but shirt dresses are so easily worn as a casual look with sneakers or loafers, too.

My Spring Break started on Friday! This weekend was the annual St. Patty’s day parade in Dallas on Greenville, which always makes for such a fun day. Friday night we had date night at our favorite Italian spot and then watched a movie at home. Saturday, we woke up and had brunch together (we haven’t gotten to in so long because he’s been working so much on Saturdays) and then went to a friend’s house for a day-party. Everyone was dressed in festive green and it was so much fun! We ended our night with pizza and were in bed super early. Sunday we ‘sprung forward’ and ended up sleeping until like 1PM. I’m using this Spring Break as an opportunity to catch up on some much needed sleep.
I have been toying with the idea of doing the Master Cleanse over part of my Spring Break. I wanted to try it out and see how it went to see if it would be a good thing to do before our wedding. I can’t imagine doing something so strict and going to work or carrying on about my every day activities, so I chose my week off work to try it out. If you don’t know what it is, I’ll be writing a full blog post about it when I finish, but it is the ‘lemonade diet’ or an intense liquid cleanse that Beyonce did to lose 20 lbs for Dream Girls. I was thinking I might start today on Monday, but am leaving town on Friday morning so I want some time to ease out of it. Since I slept in so long on Sunday, I figured the day was half way over and I’d just go for it. Sooo I’ve been at it for about a day now. I’ll share some updates on my Insta-stories this week until I get my full post up recapping it. I’ll be doing it all day Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.. then evaluating how I feel and likely easing out of it all day on Thursday. I’m hoping I can make it that far– sooo wish me luck!
Hope all of you had a great weekend and that your Monday is off to a great start. XO
