We just returned home from a wonderful week in California, enjoying sunny days and gorgeous settings, culminating with our friends beautiful wedding. The whole time I was there I wore loose, comfortable dresses in breathable fabrics, reminded of how much I always love the slightly casual vibe of the west coast. I brought this tunic-style shirt dress, made of lightweight gauzy cotton that is a perfect example, with a relaxed, comfortable fit. I wore it both as a dress, and as an easy slip-on swimsuit cover. Whether you will be traveling or staying at home, a shirt dress is one piece you will want to include in your summer wardrobe planning. See below for a variety of shirtdress options I’m loving right now.
