hi ho, it’s off to work i go. and i do love my job as it allows a shopping spree in Atlanta. yes, i’m headed to Nordstrom’s today to scope out the in-store selection. my daughter-in-law kelly is joining me, so i will share our dressing room escapades tomorrow. get excited petite sizes as kelly will rock the petite-sized clothes in addition to my size 8. can’t wait to see what we find and what will come home with us.
so what to wear on a shopping spree in Atlanta? something comfortable, casual yet chic. a linen dress from Eileen Fisher ticks all the boxes. this iconic brand is featured in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. can’t wait to touch and feel their sale items.
Eileen Fisher is a brand beloved by many due to its high-quality craftsmanship and natural fibers. this shirtdress is no exception. it’s made from 100% organic linen and comes in two colors. but the best part is this dress has an oversized fit with pockets! for whatever reason, i am enamored with dresses with pockets. who remembers the scene from Bridesmaids when annie sang the praises of the dress with pockets. that’s me! and you could twirl in that dress to boot if memory serves me correctly. while this shirtdress isn’t made for twirling, it does lend itself to ease of movement, which i love, especially on a hot summer day.
it’s recommended to size down in this dress which i did though it’s made to be oversized. while black sandals would look terrific with this simple shirtdress, i decided brown sandals (old, similar here) would add contrast and tie back to the wicker handbag (old, similar here) trimmed in black. accessories are sleek and simple today to match the simplicity of the dress. a long Tory Burch station necklace (similar here), gold hoops from Julie Vos, and a gold link bracelet are just the ticket. and my white sunnies (similar here) are back in action today.
