Everybody, Everywear: Black and White Shirtdress

I am clearly not made for pressure situations as figuring out a black + white outfit this morning almost sent me back to bed...or maybe it was just Monday morning rearing its ugly head. When I saw that the next Everybody, Everywear challenge was black and white, I was excited!  I have a strong preference for black and white separates and patterned dresses.  I own at least 10 black and white work dresses, they are so easy and always chic!

Black + White | Everybody, Everywear


When a few attempts at creative black and white ensembles failed me in my haste to get out the door, I reached for this tried and true patterned shirt dress.  I paired it with black tights, suede loafers, and my neon yellow flower pin for a spot of color.  Quick and simple for mornings when you have to get out the door fast.
Dress: Ann Taylor, Tights - Target, Shoes - DSW, Bracelet - Provincetown, MA,  Flower Pin - H&M




        What do you wear when you are running for the door, or better yet on just another Manic Monday?

What a great dress! The flower pin is a great addition too. A wrap dress is one of the easiest and most stylish items to throw on in a hurry. You look great :)

That is a fun dress! I like the pop of color from the pin too.

Cute little shoes, and comfortable dresses are the best when you need to run out the door but want to look cute aren't they?

Love how you added some pop with the yellow flower! When I'm running out the door, it's usually a dress for me, or skinny jeans, a cute top, and colored flats.

On a manic monday my run out the door is a black top of some sort and pair of jeans since my office is casual 5 days a week. Your dress is beautiful and I am glad you participated in the EBEW challenge :)

The pattern on that dress is great and I love how you added a pop of colour with that fun flower! I know that when Monday mornings roll around I will be cranky and tired so I always pick out my work outfits the night before.
