The other day at work, I grabbed Panera for lunch (You guys, their mobile app is my DOWNFALL- order your food on your phone, and pick it up minutes later without even having to talk to a real human) and I actually stuck around and ate outside because it was a beautiful day and I didn't have to hurry back to meetings.  There's a bunch of other restaurants and businesses around the Panera, which means great people watching.  During which, I saw the chicest girl walk by wearing an adorable scalloped light blue shirt dress and nude pumps.  She made me want that dress. 

Fast forward a few days and I was at the mall very hastily seeking a black pencil skirt.  Banana is my go-to for remotely professional clothes, so I checked there first and not only did I find the required black pencil skirt, but I found THE DRESS.  I had forgotten about it and never searched it out online, and there it was!  Meant to be 😉  and it was on sale.  Obviously, it went home with me.

While I did love the nude pumps-dress combo I spied on a stylish stranger earlier, I opted to spice it up a little with these red shoes.  Not only is it patriotic, but feels a little less preppy/twee.  

Scalloped edge light blue shirt dress

This shirt dress is a super crisp shirting material and has the cutest a-line cut.  It also has pockets!  It's not see-through at all.  I have plans to wear it with cognac wedges and a matching skinny leather belt, and transition it to fall with a mustard cardigan.  The fabric does wrinkle fairly easily, but I steam most of my dressed before each wear anyways, so it doesn't bother me.

As far as sizing, I went down one size.  This scalloped shirt dress also comes in white and pinstripe.

Red ankle wrap suede block heel sandals

I originally ordered these shoes in baby pink to go with a dress, and fell in love with the style.  A different pair of shoes won to match the dress, but since they come in a half dozen other colors, I decided I might need them in another shade.  I was torn between the orange-red hue and the mustard yellow; both would add such a great pop of color to nearly any outfit.  I wear my red flats a ton throughout the Fall, so ultimately the red won.   The suede ankle wraps stay in place really well (no adjusting required for a crazy busy, 10k step, 10 hour workday) and they're quite comfortable.  

As far as sizing, I went with my usual size 8 and they fit perfectly.

PS!  Those cheapie destructed jeans I mentioned ordering last week are awesome!  They run a little generous, so I'd recommend going down at least one size.  I went down one size, and they've got a tiny space, but are satisfactory, and super comfortable.

And since it's Monday that means Linkup Day! (yes, totally a proper noun)
