Perfect in Plaid

IMG_5290IMG_5296IMG_5275IMG_5298 IMG_5277IMG_5302 IMG_5280 Dear Plaid,

You’re classic. You’re preppy. You are timeless. You come in all shapes and sizes. You may be complicated at times. You may be a bit too much for me to handle. Regardless of our relationship, you never fail me when I need you the most. You stole my heart, once again, when I saw you hanging so beautifully in an Anthropologie store in the form of a relaxed shirt dress. I can’t stop the urge to wear you everything single day. Thanks for all that you do.



Okay. I’ve been staring at my computer screen all day. I think I might actually be losing my mind. I’m not lying though. This dress (with pockets) had me breathless the first time I laid my eyes on it. I knew it was gonna be a complete hit. The careless shape is so flattering and fun. It’s perfect for all shapes and sizes. It has quickly become one of my favorites in my closet. I could sleep in it. I’ve worn this shirtdress the past two date nights because it’s so effortless. It’s rare when you find a piece that does all the work for you. I think this little guy is perfect for those country girls out there. Slip this on and you will turn heads, trust me. This might a weird thing to admit but I’m always keeping an eye out for items of clothing that will grow with me. I mean literally. Grow-with-me. Something that will continue to fit me when I’m pregnant or when I get past this phase of not gaining any weight. (It’s bound to happen, I know it.) My eyes are constantly peeled for shapeless silhouettes because I just adore them so much. I really wish people would step out of their comfort zone a little and try a shirt dress like this one. They’re life changing. Being body conscious doesn’t have to be a daily thing. Give yourself a break and where something not so slimming. You will love how free you feel.

For those that are curious, I’m 5’1 and I bought this dress in XS Petite. It’s very fitted but comfortable in the arm/shoulder area and lays perfectly above the knee. I’ve been getting questions on the sizes that I buy, my height and weight. I hope this is helpful. Let me know in the comments below and I will continue to do this. If you find that you may need a different size, Anthropologie has a great return policy. Shop my look below.

With love,
