Recently, when dressing for the day, I chose a dress I found at Bleu in Hilton Head Island. A fun boutique where they believe that “style is a state of mind.” I have to say…I agree!
I like to wear dresses and always look for ones I can dress up or down. Furthermore, this one by MINKPINK is a shift dress which I love. They fit my body style well, which tends to be a bit more athletic (not a small waist). Fashion icons Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy made these dresses famous in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Check out this Real Simple article featuring shift dresses.
I paired this dress with my usual silver jewelry, including a cross necklace and Our lady of Guadalupe earrings from Punkies Place, and a pair of Cole Hahn flat sandals from a season ago. In fact, I wore this outfit to the office (in my home), out for errands at lunch and ended up wearing it to a neighborhood get-to-gather that evening. I hope to feature my MINKPINK dress in a future post…dressed up!
Do you have a favorite shift dress...that is your go to? This just became mine!
P.S. Some might say this dress is a bit short...I say, if you can pull it off and own it, wear it! Like they say...style is a state of mind!
