3 Exceptional Shirtdress Options for Spring

Tuesday, March 24, 2015 • Permalink • 

--By Kim Moshtaghi

The shirtdress is simple, and it is definitely the most comfortable spring trend. Therefore, I love it. When you throw it on you are set for a day and you won’t feel under or overdressed.

The effortless shape makes the shirtdress magical because it allows you to feel a breeze while giving you the creative ability to add a belt and accentuate your waist, as it should be accented. This will be your ultimate go-to dress when you can’t decide what to wear. Even better, designers are taking it a step further and creating shirtdresses in all lengths this season.

It seems weird to start off with a black shirtdress, but this is spectacular. This long and flowy dress creates endless opportunities. For example, try wearing it with sandals or some skyscraper heels to be extra trendy and showcase your spring fashion ready wardrobe. The spread collar makes it almost look like an over the top robe which gives it a fun flair. All you need is a bold tie belt to replace the boring black one when you want to change it up and break up the black look for the warmer months.

Monday, March 23, 2015 • Permalink • 

American Giant Sweats - Bailey 44 Gaucho Pants - Splendid Jumpsuit - Sandro Dress - Loren Stewart Bracelet

San Francisco is home to a company that has quickly become known for producing the world’s best hooded sweatshirt. It’s an odd claim to fame, but one that has made this little company that could quite famous. Just recently they started making sweatpants. Of course, I can’t wait to get a pair.

Here’s all the fun that’s hanging out in my online shopping cart this week…

1. American Giant Cropped Gym Sweats, $49.00
The maker of the world’s best hoodie has branched out to sweats. Super stylish gym sweats, to be exact. These are perfect for the lady who has mentally placed yoga pants firmly in the “basic” category (ahem, me). I’ll be sporting these in a barre class soon.
