A few of you who follow me on twitter may have remembered a while ago that my local Lane Bryant closed, so I picked up lots of goodies for cheap in their close out sale. I found this denim shirt dress amongst some of the last things there, and I knew I needed to pick it up for the spring and summer season.

I’ve always loved wearing denim, but this is the first time I’ve own a denim dress. And it’s almost the perfect denim dress. I always struggle with loving dresses this cut and sheath dresses, because my body is 1-2 sizes bigger on the bottom than on the top. Those types of dresses typically don’t leave room for my hips, but this one works pretty well considering the cut of the dress.

The dress ends right above my knee which makes it fit perfectly in warmer spring days. It came with a denim tied belt, but I substituted in this belt from Torrid for a bigger pop.

I added on gold/pearl earrings from Banana Republic Factory Store. I love their jewelry because it has Banana Republic design but with outlet prices.

I got this cute clutch purse from Aldo ( you all know how I feel about Aldo), and knew I had to wear it with the dress.

I love the floral print, and it’s a nice pop of color.

Lane Bryant no longer carries this shirt dress in their online store (although, it’s possible they may have it in-store), but they have some other cute shirt dresses on the site.
