I am deathly afraid of WHITE!! Not becuz I feel like it adds ten pounds on me but I am waaaay too self-conscious wearing the angelic shade n tip toe around ketchup puddles. When I came across this beauty in Nordies, it was totally off a whim. I thought it was off a sale rack n took it with me to the dressing room where the magic happens.
This is the feeling I need to have when a dress just feels RIGHT!! The plan comes together beautifully when u toss it on n already ur thinking what will go with the outfit n where you'd wear it to n I just KNEW I was gonna leave with it one way or another. I have always been a fan of Free People so I'm not surprised how this Charlie Long Sleeve Shirtdress blessed my body.
This cotton dress has a bloused sleeve effect which I love (in case ur insecure with flabby arms) and it lightweight to give u a flow as u walk. FP does run big n while I got a size M, I could've easily went down to a S becuz its loose fitting so just know a L will swallow u up. The belted sash it comes with did this no justice so I kicked it up a notch with my own belt.
Yes, white is a clean slate to pair with any color but for Whimsical Couture style story, I wanted neutral-ness so the main focus could still be the dress. It keeps the look-mature! I caught these shoes on sale at Nordy Rack (both under $50).
The simple details u don't pay attention to are the rows of buttons. I left them as is for the peek uh boo leg action. The best part of this dress is...it's not see thru lol. It's lightweight yet it's a lot of material. I felt whimsical wearing it. Think of how an outfit makes u feel:
This dress made me feel like I'm suppose to frolic amongst a green pasture or fields of flowers as I skip n twirl during a sunny day. This look can also transition u beyond summer. I am a believer of white AFTER Labor Day **shrugs**
You'll be sure to stay breezy in a shirtdress. It's a romantic style to wear off the shoulder as an option as well. Do NOT wait to wear this for a special occasion n toss it for day or night, even if it's a random stroll near the waters. Let the winds gently kiss u in this dress n tickle ur fancy as u flow thru the city streets gracefully and whimsically!!
