Shirt Dress in Shades of Blue

Today was a day where I did not get to do everything I wanted to do, so I had to prioritize. After 2.5 months of looking like crap most of the time I figured if I was going to face the world today, I was going to do it on my terms ;-) 

This is one of my favorite summer dresses. It is a cotton flutter sleeve shirt dress by Old Navy that I picked up 3 years ago. I also got the sweater from old navy too. I added a few extra flower pins to make the flower detail pop a little more. I am wearing my comfy Franco Sarto wedges and a yellow skinny belt. I carried my yellow tote to complete this outfit and forgot to add a picture of it. BTW blue is my absolute favorite color so my happiness factor with this outfit was through the roof. 

I am going to squeeze in a run to before the sun completely sets. Thanks for looking.

    You look gorgeous -- nice legs!! I like the flower brooches too, they are a nice touch.

    Navy and white, my favorite color combo. I have a really hard time believing you ever looked like crap. With that gorgeous smile, you could make a paper bag look chic.

    So nice to see you again, and sporting lovely fresh colour.  I think this outfit could totally be worn into the fall too with heavier footwear,  I'd like to see the flutter sleeves though.  Nice belt!

    The pin and the belt are the perfect touch for this dress.  I do love unexpected yellow accessories.

    You are looking Summer-y, fit and gorgeous! Of course you can wear a shirt dress (along with everything else you rock). Why am I not surprised? Enjoy your run!

    Oh, the colours are simply divine! I love the navy with the yellow, and the little flowers are so pretty.

    How I've missed you.
