Mamas, meet my mama. She taught me how to love. She taught me how to laugh. She taught me how to pass on a two-lane highway, how to do my own laundry and how to walk away from boys who weren't very nice. And she taught me how to dress.
So when she popped over last week on one of these 95+ degree days we've been having, looking cool and crisp in this effortlessly posh and oh-so-current shirt dress, I knew it was high time to feature Babs here on ANMJ Mom Street Style. She's wearing an unknown maker gingham shirt dress, Chanel sunnies, sliver wedge Clark's sandals and an LV Palermo GM bag I've been coveting like crazy.
Shirt dresses are having yet another major moment. They're practically papered over every collection this year, and this versatile, preppy staple is a great counterpoint to less structured summer dresses, confusing capris and shorts.
Whether you're at work, running around town with the babes or meeting up with the fam for brunch, it's almost impossible to go wrong with a shirt dress. And with the addition of a belted cardi or slim cut jacket and boots, it will take you through three seasons. For a less conventional take, pair a shirt dress with a slouchy bag, shortie boots and a low slung belt.
