Summer Shirt Dress



Whew, it’s hot. I took these images before I left for Europe on another hot summery day. Button down shirts are my favorites so naturally I’m a fan of shirt dresses as well. I got this shirtdress probably more than a year ago from Charlie by Matthew Zink which is a swimwear brand and I never got a chance to wear it. While organizing my closet, I rediscovered this shirtdress and the same dress I got in blue (which you can see here.) I should organize my closet more often because it’s like going shopping! haha

I wore my shirt dress with my favorite two tone Celine sandals and the usual suspect, my Celine mini box bag.

We went by the city hall and I rediscovered how gorgeous the City Hall is when it’s empty. aimee_song_city_hall_los_angeles

  9. I’m really loving the posts. Just wanted to say briefly that I am part of a team that is promoting a new startup called Paribus. I think it will be especially useful for people who read this blog and are interested in online shopping. Basically, Paribus automatically gets you refunds you’re owed from stores. When you buy something and it goes on sale after, you are guaranteed the difference back. Paribus gets you this money back right from your inbox with no effort required on the consumer’s part and it’s free. Try it at: paribus.co/i/ali.

  10. The purple and the gold buttons are just perfect! Love how shirt dresses can go from conservative to sexy at the snap of a button:)

Adore how it looks with these Celine sandals, the contrast is original and so cool, the Celine Mini Box bag is absolutely amazing, pure love. Wonderful photos

    Something about the flowing of the fabric gives an illusion of a soft and romantic feel to the look. Very beautiful with ease and comfort. :)
