Tan Thrited Shirt Dress

Posted on: January 31, 2013

 This  tan shirt dress has potential to serve as versatile workhorse.  I bet, if I was so inclined I could come up with at least a months worth of looks for that dress. I am not inclined to do such a venture as 30 looks… I am a new blogger, though and in time reserve the right to change my mind and revisit that idea….

I chose a classic, preppy coloring of pink and tan for the first go round with this dress. I have to confess that I purposely resisted my first three ideas of orange, brown and red. Those colors will all work well, but I have been wearing those colors lately as for me they are staples for cooler seasons.  I took advantage of the warm weather and took these photos before the temperature started the big drop.  Glad I did so as today I felt exhausted and like a good day to stay in pjs…Right now it is around 30 degrees…

I think this is a great, easy Mom on the Go look for any of us mothers who refuse to succumb to the t-shirt , jeans and tennis shoes… Funny, I only wear tennis shoes for working out…And with Fluidity I go barefoot!!!  So, I’ve taken a few warm weather looks and I see already what I mentioned before that my Spring and Summer style becomes less edgy…I like this side of me and do have to embrace my conservative side.

I did a replacement of ballet flats in early fall and just love these Aerosoles and have them in black as well. The pink or currently on clearance at $19.99.   I did not get any pointed flats when I made my purchase of new ones, so may have to add in a pair or two come Spring… Frustrating because I thought I did such a good job when I got 4 new pairs to replace worn out ones.

Dear Readers, do you change your style during different seasons?  What’s on your current wish list for Spring?  Any plans to get pointed flats? 

Gratitude: I am so grateful for the health of my children and family.  If you are grateful for the health of your family please join me today in sending out prayers to a fellow blogger @ thrifted or scripted as she fights breast cancer.

This dress is such a classic piece, you will definitely get a ton of use out of it. I like it paired with the pink cardigan and your shoes are absolutely adorable!

My style does change for the seasons. Winter weather makes me want to wear pants and cozy scarves and boots. Summer I pretty much stick to dresses, heels and skirts. Heather

Thank you and yes, skirts and dresses for Spring and Summer are the best in my book! Do you still feel like you personify the Classic with a twist look in warmer months?

What a great dress with so many possibilities. Love the pink patterned top and ballet flats.

Tracey thank you for the continued thoughts and prayers. I love this combination with the pink and tan.

You are welcome I posted your link on You Look Fab forum asking for more prayers. Two people left comments that they didn’t have accounts that let them leave a message but wanted to send prayers. I was wondering if you are up to sharing whether this was something that was found at a routine check up or symptoms that sent you to the doctor as it might help someone else. Hope you have a wonderful day playing with your beautiful family today!
