Shirt Dress: Dressed Up, Dressed Down

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, InStyle, Vogue and Elle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirefallfashion  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

For the last few months of pregnancy I was anticipating the day I would regain access to the rest of my closet--just in time for fall fashion!

While I was at Target on my first trip out after giving birth (because duh, where else would I go?) I picked up a copy of InStyle's fall issue to get my style mojo back up and running.  I also treated myself to a bonus--a copy of ELLE since Target is having a deal right now!  (Buy any two: InStyle, Elle, or Vogue and get a $5 Target gift card through 9/13.  That's basically getting one magazine for free!)


As I flipped through the magazines I was instantly inspired with a couple of ways to revive my old H&M shirt dress: dressed up and dressed down!



Dressed Up
ELLE had a section on bold colors and how to wear them, including boldly colored suede pumps similar to ones I owned.  Another section showed a neutral outfit paired with colorful pumps.  It was easy to dress up this black shirt dress with colorful accessories:

Dress: H&M (similarsimilar)  |  Bag: Forever 21 (exact)  |  Shoes: Old Navy (similar)

Dressed Down
I showed this outfit last week which was inspired by an outfit in InStyle with a neutral tailored dress and sneakers.  I already mentioned how much I loved being able to dress down this dress, but I'll say it again.  I LOVE that sneakers are in this fall!

Dress: H&M (similar, similar)  |  Bag: c/o Lily Jade  |  Shoes: Target (exact, similar, similar)

  2. I was just trying on the two shirt dresses I have in my closet...One is gray, the other khaki, so both are easy to accessorized with color. I love the look of them and am excited to wear them with flats or sandals now and with a cardigan, boots and tights once the weather turns colder. I love how they are an easy way to look put together. It's really impossible to look like a slob in a shirt dress! :)

  6. Thanks for the tidbit about Target offering a $5 gift card with the purchase of two magazines. Now I feel better about not grabbing a mag when I was in the grocery store. You absolutely cannot tell you just had a baby!
