I started thinking about a chambray shirt dress when I read this blog post from Alison at Get Your Pretty On. I love easy and cute and that seemed to be just what this dress is all about! Dressy enough for my office, but still casual enough for anytime. Of course, like most women I think, I went to Pinterest to be sure I would be able to wear it lots of ways with things in my closet. The answer was a definite yes!

I thought both looked really cute, but ultimately I went with the more expensive GAP option because I got a good deal during a 40% off sale and I liked that I could belt it or not and could remove the belt if I wanted to add my own. I also thought it looked a little cleaner and more polished, and since I planned to wear it to work, that was a must. I also liked that I could order a petite size from GAP.
Here’s how I wore it the first go-round!
I topped it with a floral jacket from Maurice’s, some tan booties (a few years ago from Target), and simple earrings and a watch. I thought it was a great office look, but could be casual as well.
I’m so happy with this purchase and I’m sure I will wear it all kinds of ways in all seasons!
