Shirtdresses For Spring

When I returned the Gaultier top, I headed over to Target's excellent selection of Merona dresses. I had a hard time choosing between their floral Easter offerings and something more casual, but in the end work wear won. In fact, shirt dresses keep popping out the entire day I was out shopping. In mini form, they're playfully sassy. Longer, they're work casual. With the correct accessories (bead necklaces, espadrilles, frame bag) they have beachy retro appeal. I just may live in them as the weather warms.Top: candy stripe faux two-piece dress, Express $49.50

Shirt dresses seem to have a problem with me. Even when they fit well, I feel like they just don't look right, but I love them on other people. That's why I keep finding myself trying them on. Maybe one day I'll become acquainted with the perfect one.

It's a shame it had to be returned. The design was great!
