The Chambray Shirt Dress and a Bright Bag: A Date Night Look

SPRING IS HERE!  It’s about d*** time.  I can’t wait to see the blossoms starting to spout from the trees.  Something about spring makes me think of new beginnings.  It’s also another excuse to update my fashion wardrobe!  Cue pops of bright accent colors, florals, and brushing off the dust from my favorite spring/summer dresses.  Today I pulled my favorite go-to chambray shirt dress out of the back of my closet to share a date night spring look!

This dress is absolutely amazing!  I can wear it both in spring and fall and for both dressy and casual occasions.  I love the tie detailing and how it adds shape to the dress.  I recommend either using this method or using a belt if your dress doesn’t tie to add definition to the dress.  Either way, trust me; you all need a chambray shirt dress in your wardrobe.  Don’t worry though, I’m linking to a few of my favorites at the end of this post that are all under $100.

I loved how pairing this dress with a bright bag gave it an instantly spring vibe.  There is nothing better after the dreary winter months than pulling bright pops of color out of your wardrobe!  I typically like to give an outfit a “focal piece” (a specific top, accessory, or feature of the outfit).  In this case, it’s the bag.  I never like to detract from the focal piece, so for this outfit, I kept my earrings and shoes simple to keep the eye on the bag.  I always like to say that’s a good rule of thumb when styling any outfit:  never detract from your focal piece.

This look is perfect for a date night, or a girls night out dinner/shopping trip!  I hope you all check out some of the looks below and consider giving a chambray shirt dress a try.  Comment below and share some of your thoughts on this look or how you like to style your shirt dress!  Have a great week, ladies!

  1. RIGHT!! It’s about DAMN time!! haha. You look lovely in denim! I really think blue is your color. And I love that bag…SO pretty and such a great transitional piece as well!

    1. Thanks, Beth! Yeah, I believe every outfit should have one or sometimes two focal pieces that you really want to stand out and show off in an outfit!
