It’s officially spring, and we’re emerging from a winter hibernation the likes of which none of of us has experienced ever before. I have a feeling I’m not alone in feeling like it’s difficult to think about wearing anything but the trusty rotation of sweatsuits that have become go-tos during this bizarre time.
But I was required to do so the past weekend because the first day of spring coincides with Persian New Year, for which my husband’s family does not mess around when it comes to looking fly.
Luckily I had a dress I knew would both fit my body (larger than last Nowruz) and be presentable for the occasion.
This Ganni shirt dress felt no less comfortable than a sweat suit, but was orders of magnitude more presentable. The Bells & Becks slip on tassel shoes were also, luckily, already in my closet, and I haven’t carried anything but this Ban.do handbag for at least a year. The Rag & Bone sunglasses are from Nordstrom Rack! Check out the entire outfit and more shopping ideas here.
A roomy shirt dress, I submit, is the perfect transitional piece to take you from hibernation to dipping your toe into the pool of the outside world. Here are some really pretty ones to get you started.
