A linen shirt dress in bright colors! That’s the outfit of the day.

And I don’t even like linen. But when I saw this dress( it’s actually a tunic) online, I wanted it! And it was not yet July, you know, shop stop, so I ordered it. When the packet was delivered  and I unwrapped it eagerly, I found out that it was linen. What I don’t like about linen is the fact that it wrinkles a lot and then you look so sloppy and that after you’ve worn it once, it is a size bigger. But I have worn the dress last Sunday and it was 27 degrees here, and it feels just cool. Well you may wonder why on earth I wear leggings with those temperatures, but we went for friends to barbecue and I did not want to constantly pricked by mosquitos. And guess what…..they pricked me three times under the straps of my shoes and under my feet. And I left my shoes on!

Wearing leggings under your dress so as not to be pricked by mosquitos does not help! Click To Tweet

Orange and pink together in a shirtdresss.

Pink and orange combined with brown. I think the colors go great together. And I always love a high low hem.These colors and the wooden sandals give the outfit, with a bit of imagination, a 70 s feel. Leave earrings are the only accessory. I think the outfit doesn’t need more.

  1. Nancy, I absolutely LOVE this dress/tunic! I have come to accept that linen is supposed to have that wrinkled look. It is the nature of the fabric. And that keeps me from being too bothered by the wrinkles! The colors are amazing and the high-low hem is darling. And I love the shirt dress style. All of it! So fabulous! Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge of the Week. I hope to see you again next week. Have a fantastic weekend!


  2. Hi Nancy, You looking stunning in this dress, its a classy combination and your blog is amazing you explained every bit about dress. I love it, Thanks for sharing with us

  3. Nancy, this dress is ahmayyyzing! I love the tie-dyed effect, and the combination of the pinks and oranges and greys look so pretty. And you’re right, the dress speaks for itself, it doesn’t need much addition to it.
