Shifty Business

how to style a shift dress

how to style a shift dress
If there is one style of dress that I can't seem to get enough of, it's the shift. And yes I did cave and get this off of my last craving lately post and you might see another dress from that post really soon. But anyway back to this shift. I knew that it's a dress that I would love dressing up and down, which is one thing I always look for. Since I was attending Lucky Fabb, I wanted to go for a more professional still fashionable vibe. Tossing on a structured jacket always does the the trick, but giving it a little more depth with the chambray is a great unexpected touch.

You may or may not thank me for the lack of pictures from attending Lucky Fabb over the weekend. I'm not the best at trying to take it all in and snapping pictures. I couldn't even eat without spilling on myself-yes I can dress like a lady but grace is another thing. But just a tiny recap: meeting some very stylish bloggers that are just as nice in real life, this lady recognizing me, and the swag bag was like 10 lbs (enough said).

Hope you had a great weekend! Let's have a great week! xo

  3. Awe, sweet girl, of course I recognized you!! It was so great meeting you!! And can we talk about how amazing that swag bag was!! I was scared I would not make the 50lb cut off when I checked in my bag to fly home!! Such a fun weekend!!

  4. You look adorable and you hair is seriously looking FABULOUS! Ha and I am the same way with pictures--if I am on vaca or doing anything remotely fun--I am awful with capturing the moment on film lol! O well :) I hope you had a fabulous time--I am super jelly! :)

  6. Yep- so true! If I'm busy taking pictures I feel like I'm not really living in and enjoying the moment! Glad you had a great time at Lucky Fabb and I agree that a structured jacket (vs. say, a cardigan) always takes an outfit to a dressier/more professional level. And thanks for the tidbit on Nicole Richie and gardening! Now I know where to wear my outfit! LOL!
