every girl needs a chambray shirt dress

A Pretty Penny | Chambray Shirt Dress


When I bought this little chambray number on sale at Kohl’s last year, I had no idea it would become one of my all-time favorite basics.

This comfy dress is easily transformed from weekday to weekend with belts, shoes, and accessories. I’ve thrown it on with flats countless times for busy days at the flower shop, but I’ve also worn it as cover-up at the beach, with heels and a statement necklace for casual business meetings, and over tights and boots on chilly days. It’s one of the most versatile — and comfortable! —  pieces in my closet, and it just keeps getting softer and better with each wash and wear.

  1. I comment each time I especially enjoy a article on a website or
    I have something to add to the discussion. Usually it’s triggered by
    the fire communicated in the post I looked at. And on this article every girl needs a chambray shirt dress
    | A Pretty Penny. I was moved enough to drop a thought
    ;) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you usually
    do not mind. Is it simply me or does it seem like some
    of the responses come across like left by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to
    post. Could you list all of all your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  2. I love this post and the outfit. I tried one on at anthropologie this weekend and wasn’t sure if I would wear it. I just got my birthday coupon in the mail from them. I’m going back to see if they still have it.

  3. Pretty dress! Goes really well with a pop of red (like that bag)! All your looks and outfits are so inspiring :)

    Btw, what size did you end up getting? My measurements are 34-26-36..will a size XS work fine or will a size S fit better? Many thanks for your help :)

  4. My chambray shirt has just about seen it’s last day. It has had just about every spill on it and also after about 454098 runs in the dryer, it is a little ill-fitting. I thought I need to invest in a new one, but maybe I will make it a dress instead…

  5. I love Chambray….I have a chambray dress from Nasty Gal but it’s not a shirt dress more like a sun dress. Those capped toe shoes are divine by the way.

    1. Thanks! These flats were a personal victory for me ;) They’re Brian Atwood, and I stalked them in a Hautelook Sunday blowout sale for 30 minutes before making them mine for less than $50. I wear them all the time!

  6. I need this in my life. I’m admittedly a really lazy dresser, and I love versatile items that I can just throw on with some accessories while knowing that I still potentially look awesome.

    I now need to remedy my lack of amazing shirt-dress, thank you!

  7. I know your post is about the dress, but I love that scarf! :) Love how you’re making denim look so chic and dressed up with your accessories.
