I was bored shopping the other day and found this pink dress. I thought it would be so cute for Valentines day (which it will) but I wanted to share it on the blog showing it could be more than just a v-day look. The challenge to myself was to make this cute shift dress 1). appropriate for work and 2). weather conscious. 

How'd I do it? Layer. I love layering dresses with crisp white shirts. There's just something so classy about it and it speaks to my inner prep. I rolled up the sleeves to give it more of a laid back look while also making it a little less boxy. Added these boots (that are like 5 years old) to the mix because they're actually the only tall pair of boots I own with heels. I just thought regular old riding boots would be too bleh with it.

What do you think? Did I do this dress justice? I hopefully will be back next week showing how I styled it for Valentines day (weather pending). 

Andrew and I will be heading to Maine for the long weekend to celebrate the holiday and to just get away. This trip was actually part of my Christmas present-- I've never been to Maine so I wanted to check it off. If you have any recommendations please let me know. We'll be in Portland!



  1. Love your dress, and how fun that you're heading to Maine! It's my home state :). You have to see the iconic Portland Head Light, which is actually in the next town over (Cape Elizabeth). There are tons of good restaurants but Flatbread Company (wood-fired flatbread pizza) is great if you want a more casual meal, the vibe is fun and a little offbeat! Also, if you like donuts, The Holy Donut has amazing ones!


  2. What a cute look! Have a great time in Maine!

  4. I love how you layered your dress. I've always been nervous to do it!

  5. That dress is adorable! I'd pair it with tights and flats. Love!

  6. Love the dress! Going to Portland in April (also a Christmas present) and hope it will be on a travel Tuesday so I can get some ideas for my trip!

  7. I saw this dress the other day at Nordstrom and I love the way you styled it, I never would have thought of putting a white shirt under it! And hope you have a great time in Maine!

    xoxo Nicole
