Yesterday, in honor of the first signs of spring starting to shine through, I wore one of my all-time favorite dresses...a dress that I have personally deemed the ultimate preppy dress!
This precious smock is a Ralph Lauren oxford shirtdress from the POLO outlet store. It's blue with pink stripes, and came with a matching pink belt! So me!
I love this dress because it's perfect for so many occasions! I've worn it to birthday dinners, Mother's Day lunches, church, etc. and I always feel like the belle of the ball!
I picked this up in a POLO outlet at the North Carolina Outer Banks four years ago. I wasn't looking specifically for this dress, but I remember walking in and seeing one of the salespeople wearing one just like it, but it in a different color. She'd paired it with brown cowboy boots, and it was gorgeous! I was in love with that outfit, and knew I had to have it! I don't remember the exact price, but it couldn't have been more than $40.00 or so, which is a steal for a good dress that you can wear for going on 5 years!
I don't know if POLO still sells the exact one, but they did have a similar dress on their website:
The Adele Cotton Poplin Shirtdress
If you ever find a button-up, oxford dress like this one, grab it! It's one of my favorite preppy purchases of all time, and I just know you would love it too!
As always, Have a Sweet Day!
