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!

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.

        Thanks Nancy, actually it got delivered yesterday and I returned it haha it was way too short for me! I don’t mind the wrinkles really I think it all adds to the relaxed look of linen. Gemma x

          Well perhaps you are right! 🙂

    • July 12, 2016 / 7:53 pm

      That’s why I felt for it. I thought it would be jersey. But it’s fine:-)

    The mosquitoes love me too, Nancy!! It’s sometimes quite annoying!
    But the dress/tunic looks perfect on you! And I think you were right not to add more accessories—it speaks by itself!

    • July 12, 2016 / 7:57 pm

      Yes, I think so too Jodie. And here the are a lot of mosquitos at the moment.Normally they like Gerben more then me.

    This dress is so pretty on you, and I love the bright colors and mix of orange and pink. I’m with you about linen. Although I do like the material, I hate how it wrinkles so I don’t buy it very often.

    • July 14, 2016 / 8:26 am

      I did not have one linen item. But I have to say, just give it a Chance because it s great to wear when it is hot!

      Some dresses look even better with a legging I think! Have a great weekend!

  8. July 16, 2016 / 2:28 pm

    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!

      I NOW can see why most women like linen. It’s a relaxed something. Ha ha, more I know! Thank you also Shelbee 🙂 enjoy your weekend!

    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

  12. July 20, 2016 / 8:42 am

    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.

    • July 20, 2016 / 9:11 am

      Thank you very much :-)! I felt for the colors instantly.

    I love pink orange but I have to agree with you that this color is tricky to pull off. But trust me, you look super lovely and glowing in this skirt. I am really inspired by this combination
