I’ve you’ve read many of my previous fashion posts, you know I’m fond of wearing dresses over pants. It’s a fun look and a great way to wear a dress that might be a bit too short for me to feel comfortable wearing by itself.


This look features a dress I picked up from Old Navy in the spring. (Why are so many of Old Navy’s dresses so short?) It really is more of a tunic length. I love the swing style of this dress; it is such a flattering silhouette. This is a sleeveless dress, which makes it perfect for layering. I also love that it’s a button down. Very cute detailing. The pattern of the fabric is fun and the color is extremely easy to wear.

To truly convert it to the tunic look, I paired the dress with a pair of dark wash boyfriend jeans. I rolled up the cuffs for a more relaxed feel. These jeans are super comfy, perfect for a casual summer day.

To add a bit of warmth and interest to the outfit, I added a simple off white cardigan. This cardigan is extremely versatile and it really added a lot to this outfit.

The final addition to the look was a comfy pair of cognac colored flip flops. They really lend themselves well to the casual, relaxed feel of the outfit.


This was such a comfortable outfit, perfect for a day of kicking around town with the family. (Incidentally, I just realized that this entire outfit, right down to the shoes, came for Old Navy—how’s that for brand loyalty? And, no, this post is not sponsored.)
