This Shirt Dress Can Take You from Your Desk to Drinks

Written by Julie Weinstein

Happy Monday! We hope your weekend was equal parts relaxing and fun. 

With fall on the horizon and school back in session, things will soon be starting to really pick back up. And especially in these parts! We have some big changes coming your way, and we’re so excited to share it all with you. In the meantime, with work picking back up, as summer winds down, you might be looking for some new pieces in your wardrobe that are work-friendly, but also stylish. And it’s a bonus when the item can take you from work to happy hour!

What Carrie is Wearing

This shirt dress is absolutely perfect for work, and it can just as easily take you out afterwards. The simple grid pattern is beautiful and the optional belt to cinch your waist gives you options on how to wear it. Carrie paired hers with nude heels and a nude bag, and topped it all off with her gorgeous pale pink earrings

Design Within Reach

Could you die over this backdrop? The second Carrie saw it, we knew we had to take photos there. It’s in the Design Within Reach store here in Houston. So much color!! And, in fact, we spotted many colorful items at DWR that we want to get our hands on, and we’ve linked them below for you to check out.

One More Thing

Are you ready for the summer to be over? As much as I’m loving this most carefree season and not rushing it to end, I am really looking forward to fall! Have a great day and we’ll see you back here tomorrow morning.

    Hi there,
    What a great dress! And that backdrop — wow!


    1. Carrie says:

      Isn’t the backdrop great? We had seen it in this store many times, and we figured the hot Houston summer was the perfect time to stage an indoor photo shoot. 🙂

    Love that backdrop – When I saw it inside the store, I immediately was trying to think of a way to recreate it at my house!

      Yes! Great idea, Cayla! 🙂
