Inspired: Liberty of London

My new shirtdress is made of Liberty of London's Poppy & Honesty design from 1932.

I found a photo of the dress, but the colors are off. This shirt is closer. Now I just need to wait for spring, and with it already being February...not much longer!

Will you post a pic of how you wear your shirt dress? I tried a denim-ish one on yesterday and just wasn't sure about how to pull it off.

It may have just been this particular one, as the buttons seemed to end too high up, leaving kind of a split at the bottom of the shirtdress. I thought about wearing it over leggings, but it seemed like I'd still be flashing my crotch - not very modest for work wear. It seems like there are such good layering possibilities with a well-cut one.

I'll definitely be wearing this one with jeans or leggings - not enough there for no pants.

NO PANTS!! I insist :) Didn't I make that clear in Hawaii?

When I bought it, I actually thought to myself: I bet when Jean comes she'll borrow this thing and wear it with no pants...

I love the Liberty prints...so elegant and lovely. I have a small Liberty tote bag with a greenish/yellow flowers that I use for my knitting.
