The Fashion Magpie Button Dress 2

Buttoned Up.

I’ve noticed a fetching detail on a number of trendy pieces right now: oversized, prominent buttons running straight down the front of a skirt or dress.  I like the look a lot, especially paired with airy linen.  (And, OK, I’m still not over those Staud net bags, shown above!)

Get the look…

A STRIPED LINEN BUTTON-DOWN DRESS (ON SALE!)

A LOVELY WAISTED SHIRTDRESS IN LAVENDER

A LINEN MIDI SKIRT (ALSO AVAILABLE IN DRESS FORM!)

A STEAL FROM LOFT

AN ELEGANT WHITE SKIRT (VERY TALENTED MR. RIPLEY)

A BREEZY EVERYDAY DRESS

A FLOUNCE-SLEEVED STATEMENT BLOUSE (FOR UNDER $30!)

THIS SIDE-BUTTON PINAFORE DRESS

I like the idea of any of these paired with these Manebi slides and a Pam Munson bag (read more on her here — one of my favorite interviews thus far!).

P.S.  This is button-less, but shares the casual, breezy vibe so many of the dresses above project.  (And that back!!!)  And speaking of easy-wear dresses, this sunbeam of a dress from Joie has been marked down to just over $100!

P.P.S.  Three amazing (!!!) beauty deals: my favorite Tata Harper products, bundled up and heavily discounted; a jumbo size bottle of Molton Brown body wash in the most invigorating of scents (gender neutral — Mr. Magpie and I both love this stuff; would make a great gift!); and a quintuplet of Diptyque candles, about 25% off.

P.P.P.S.  My favorite running shoes, in some amazing new colorways, on sale — I like the lavender and the olive green, which feels kinda Yeezy in a cool way to me.
