A shirt dress two ways + #bossnotes event with WhoWhatWear

A full length shirt dress can be so versatile for the warmer months.

As a skirt

This particular shirt dress c/o SheIn has an elasticated waist which makes wearing it as a skirt a little easier – the elastic naturally rests above the hip and keeps it in place.  Simply tie the sleeves in the front and it’s good to go!

As a dress

Perfectly gorgeous as a shirt dress as well!  Conveniently a 2 in 1!

Bustier – Aritzia // Shirt Dress – c/o SheIn // Denim – AllSaints (similar) // Pumps – BCBG // Sandals – Cole Hann // Jewelry – TYPENU Co

Shop the look:

I’ve been searching for a simple, strappy and minimal bralette/bustier for awhile now to layer under whites and sheer tops; apparently my expectations were too high because with all the options out there, nothing was quite right until this Aritzia number came along!  It’s available in other neutral colors as well, but black was of course, my ultimate choice.

And I love this black sheer shirt dress for a variety of reasons – it’s easy to wear, easy to layer, and easy to errrr convert to a skirt.  The fabrication makes this perfect for the season as well, what a winner!

#bossnotes with WhoWhatWear at the San Jose Westfield mall

This past weekend WhoWhatWear hosted their #bossnotes: Leading with Style series in the Bay Area at the Westfield Valleyfair mall featuring a panel of style bloggers Chriselle Lim (The Chriselle Factor) + Anh Sunstrom (9 to 5 Chic) + Tanesha Awasthi, hosted by co-founder of WhoWhatWear.com Hillary Kerr.  The ladies discussed branding, staying relevant, the effort that goes on behind the scenes and balancing between work and life.  It was informative and inspiring; all 3 women were incredibly gracious and gorgeous.

Miss Chriselle indulged me in a goofy shot:

I was way too awe struck to smile properly anyway!  If it’s even possible the woman is even more amazing and beautiful in real life.

By the way, despite how calm and cool I try to look in my photos, this is how I actually behave the other 99% of the time in my normal life.
