Outfit of the day: Lands End Canvas shirt dress



Outfit Details:

dress - Lands End Canvas, belt - H&M, boots - Frye

It's official. Scrolling through my outfit posts, I wear these boots way too often. I actually didn't realize how much I would love them, or what work horses they would turn out to be when I ordered them as my Christmas present from DH. (Yes, I buy my own gifts and DH wraps them... that's how we roll and it works for us!) I love when that happens... and I probably need to make sure that happens with the majority of items in my closet.

This shirt dress from Lands End Canvas is another example. Every time I wear this dress, I feel amazing in it. I don't think I ever owned a dress that fit me so well. I went very minimal with the accessories because I think this dress stands on its own.

In other news: I bought a black trench from H&M today. This makes three items in three days. This is bad. Must. Shop... erm I mean... Stop!

I looove your dress. I bought it too but sadly, it was much too short for me. :-(

What a great plaid! Did you pick that up instore or online? They sell at some sear's in the states, but I wasn't sure if they did in Canada...Adorable on you with those boots :)

This dress DOES look like it fits you to a tee. Don't you love when that happens? I saw this on the LEC site and was intrigued, so it's great to see it styled here. I agree that the simple styling really lets the dress shine!

@KDot - Thanks! It does run short which means it is perfect for a shortie like me. lol Maybe it'd work with tights for you?

@Jess - I bought online, and crossed my fingers for a good fit. I know we have some Lands End in Sears here in Canada, but I don't think Lands End Canvas is available.

@Jamie - Thanks so much! I so recommend this dress. It's taking all my effort not to buy it in a different colour and keep my fashion resolution of no.more.duplicates! :)

Great dress! I love shirtdresses too! And I love Land's End Canvas. I ordered from their sale selection on a whim and I wasn't disappointed at all. They even sent a little personalized note to say how much they appreciated my order and offering any assistance if I have an issue with my purchase.

I just got this dress too and love it! The skirt is a tad flouncy for me, so I put a longish cardigan over it and belted it which calmed it down a bit. I had so much fun wearing it.

I have a similar dress and, suffice to say, it's the cherry on my wardrobe cake. We share the same taste.

You look amazing in the dress. The belt added texture and color, and created a dramatic look. It also braces your body in a corset-like fashion.
