Shirt Dress from Day to Night

The weather was seriously so different than any other Cali trip we have been on! We were only able to get in the pool twice because it was so cold! B kept asking to get in the pool, so one night I made our bathroom into a “pool” at the hotel and convinced him it was way better 🙂

He is such a little fish! He would swim all day, every day if we had a pool! Lately he has been SO scared to get in anywhere he can’t touch! I don’t know what it is but he hates being in the water where he can’t touch so he’s always playing on the corners or the kiddy pools 🙂

Obsessed with this quilted bomber! The detailing on the sleeves is beyond!



We spent a few extra days in Santa Monica outside of the fashion shows I was in LA for just hanging out and relaxing. We had originally blocked off three days, and next thing I knew they were booked with meetings and other work stuff, so we only got one full day to do nothing. I wore this dress from the pool to dinner one night, and it’s seriously so comfortable. No matter how many pairs of sky-high heels or dressier pieces I pack, nine times out of 10 I’ll choose jeans or a cozy shirt dress over anything else.  This white shirt-dress was so comfortable and a great piece to transition from poolside to dinner. It’s made with TENCEL®, which is one of the ingredients that’s in all of the softest denim. It’s seriously probably one of the easiest things to style because it is so flattering how ever you wear it. I paired it with this quilted bomber for dinner and had so many people stop and ask me where it was from! I’m obsessed with it. Also, I just ordered this frayed hem top for our next beach trip because I love how soft all of the Bella Dahl pieces are!

    I love how beautifully you transitioned this outfit from day to night just with the help of a simple jacket! All the while it stays really classic and refined!

    ❤️️This shirt dress Christine! The easy shape and hem detail are perfect! And totally agree-the drape of tencel makes it one of my favorite fabrics.
    As a former swim teacher too, it’s a phase! Keep him in the water and he’ll be swimming around in no time 😍
    XO, Julie & Courtney (would love for you to check us out!)

    Hi Christine! I am absolutely in love with this dress! I do not dress up that often but I would totally wear this dress when I do. It is so simple yet with the right jacket and shoes you could make it elegant. I have been wanting to dress up more often but I just feel like it takes too much time some mornings. Do you have any recommendations about simple yet dressy outfits? Also, do you have any favorite clothing stores you recommend?

    1. Omg Bre you should! It’s such a simple silhouette so it’s a good baby step. 🙂
