Do you have a favorite color combination that just makes your heart skip a beat? If you've been reading this blog for a while, then my love for blue and white should be no news to you. This color combination is my absolute favorite and I incorporate it in our home as well as wardrobe. Blue and white together, in my opinion, look timeless and very elegant. With all that being said, I don't have to tell you what was about this dress that instantly drew me to it. With the risk of sounding shallow, the moment I saw it, I went in "I gotta have it" mode.

Of course I found it at T.J. Maxx - I know of no one who doesn't like this store, it simply is full of "treasures". I tried it on and I literally thought that this shirt dress was made for me. It has a bit of a heavier fabric but is well-made and very flattering. Pineapple is not something that comes to mind when I think of blue and white but it's what makes it so unique.
I wanted to share this dress with you guys since I noticed that it's low in stock, so if you like it as much as I do, get it here (for reference, I'm wearing a size 4 and and it fits TTS), similar here or here.
To give it a more elevated look, I paired it with my faithful espadrilles (get the exact ones here or here - size down half a size), a floppy hat that I modified myself by adding a ribbon and my cat-eye sunglasses, for a fun day around Santa Barbara (more on that to come). And no, I didn't plan on wearing this at the beach but we end up in "mysterious" places when exploring, right?
Do you like this shirt dress as much as I do?
Until next time.
