Autumn Style - The Penneys Olive Green Shirt Dress

Happy Sunday my lovelies!

This is just a short post on last night's dress - I posted a pic on instagram & I have received a lot of messages about it!

I was heading to a family meal last night & I said the usual to my Husband "I have nothing to wear!" (first world problems & all!!!!) I was in Liffey Valley then yesterday afternoon & I hit my reliable Penneys for a last min. outfit. They have a lot of their A/W collection on the shelves now so there was so many beautiful autumnal shades & styles to choose from.

I ended up selecting the olive green shirt style or button front short sleeve dress. I adored the colour & the light fabric & short sleeves made it the perfect transitional outfit! I was saying on my insta stories last night that the Liffey Valley store only had two dresses left in a size 10 & a size 12. I thought the 12 was a little too big around the shoulders so I went with the 10. However, it does run a little tighter around the tummy & leg area so if you don't want it too fitted or the slit in the front too high then I would suggest going up one size just to have that more comfort fit.

I think the style of dress that it is can be worn a little oversized if you want to! I absolutely loved mine & I really like the little tie belt detail which helps to cinch in the waist. The v cut neckline is so flattering especially if you are like me & you have bigger boobs!! The short sleeve is again flattering covering the tops of your arms & my all time favourite element on this dress is the tortoise shell style buttons all down the front.

This detail really is a feature on the dress & gives it an overall more expensive vibe. This one is only Eur18 so it's a bargain at that price! I themed mine with tortoise shell earrings also from Penneys for Eur4. The tortoise shell accessories & features on clothes is going to be a massive trend for A/W 2018.

I styled mine with tan suede heels which were last years' from Penneys too! I love the slightly over the knee length of the dress - it just gives that super chic vibe!

I'm in love with this shade of green - theme it with gold's & tans & its a beauty! You could make it a more casual look with some studded ankle boots or if the sun comes back out a nice tan sandal or wedge!

Leaving the house it was a little chilly so I threw my Penneys mustard suede jacket (also last years') over my shoulders to complete the look! It was raining too so I needed cover!
A tan suede or black leather jacket would also look cute with this outfit! So there you have it ....Saturday nights' look all from my beloved Penneys!

PS - I was only five mins late for dinner - an all time record for me LOL
