I was looking for an alternative dark coloured shirt dress that’s shorter than my navy linen by The White Company that I’ve had for several years. It had a washing accident resulting in an unfortunate stonewash effect. This one turned up in the sale at Mango here and they have lots of other shirt dresses. They call the colour coal and whilst I don’t normally wear brown dresses, this is kind of an inky brown that’s a bit different.It does contain ramie which is a cheap version of linen I think so will crease but I don’t mind that. It’s machine washable and has pockets. I’m getting used to the drawstring feature that seems to be de rigeur this season. For me this style represents a newer more relaxed version of my beloved shirt dresses. I grabbed the green Jigé which also something new for me: day clutch for running around. If you look closer, you may see a green bracelet 🙂 It’s a classic style by Hermès and I was very lucky to find one to fit my small wrist.Easily fits the essentials of 2 little purses, make up pouch, tissues and sunglasses case as seen in this post.
Thanks for reading!
