While I generally live in shorts and pants during the spring and summer, I love having a couple of cool dresses in my wardrobe to choose from, too. That’s why I’m so pleased to share with you this paisley shift dress today. It’s the perfect dress to throw on for most any occasion during the warmer days.
A shift dress is usually somewhat straight, but can have a little shaping to it. The beauty of this style of dress is that it just skims the body, following the curves of the body, but not hugging them tight.
While I really think this dress (or any dress, for that matter) looks best on me with nude heels, I chose to style it with my black strappy sandals on this particular evening. I know I have a number of readers who never wear heels, and I wanted to show that this dress looks beautifully feminine without them.
I generally provide a back view of outfits that I think you may have question about. But you really can’t tell from this photo that the dress does not hug the rump, but only gently cascades over it. Ahem. I’m wearing my Spanx Thinstincts Girl shorts beneath my dress for no panty lines and minimal shaping.
I kept my jewelry to a minimum since the paisley print is pretty busy. Since I wanted to use my gold wristlet, I added my gold bangle and some gold dangling earrings (no longer available).
This particular knit shift dress is reduced 30%, but I’ve also included other similar dresses in the shopping widget below. Oh, and this dress comes in a pink variation as well. It’s extremely comfortable. I’m wearing a medium, whereas sometimes I do wear small in dresses. Honestly, I might could have worn the small, but I didn’t even try it.
A silky knit shift dress is perfect for church, dinner out, vacation or a shower. Do you have a colorful shift dress in your closet? If not you might want to look through the shopping widget below. I found some at all price points.
Thank you for dropping by Dressed for My Day today. Please let me know if you have any questions about the items in today’s post. It’s a short one, huh! But I think this sweet dress pretty much speaks for itself!
Blessed for My Day
Are you a hungry girl? Sure you are. We all are hungry girls. We’re hungry in our souls for love, significance, purpose and security. But when we don’t get those hungers fed from the right source, we tend to run to people, things and experiences for fleeting satisfaction.
Instead, today I encourage you to feed your hungry soul with the truth of God’s Word. When we meditate on soul satisfying truth, we become contented and grateful women with something to bring to the table. We no longer suck the people in our lives dry. And we testify to the goodness of our God.
Your words were found and I ate them,
And Your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart;
For I have been called by Your name,
O Lord God of hosts. ~ Jeremiah 15:16
