Sateen Shirt Dress.

It's been a less than ideal summer here in the Okanagan, at least in terms of weather. It all started out with a damp, cool and very rainy spring. It rained so much that Okanagan Lake hit its highest level on record, which caused beaches to disappear and houses to fill and flood with water! As the weather heated up things didn't get much better, as we went from floods right into forest fire season. And it has been super smoky here ever since! The Smokanagan!!! The smoke has been so bad that on some occasions you can't even see the other side of the lake, let alone the mountains.

Suffice it to say, I am looking forward to fall! And to kick things off, I'm starting with this awesome Sateen Shirt Dress from Zara. I was all about dresses this summer and I've decided to carry this vibe right on through to fall.

The one thing I love about this shirt dress is its versatility! I've been wearing this dress a fair bit lately and find myself switching up the overall look with shoes and accessories.  I kept this look casual and sleek with a pair of loafer slides (my new favourite shoe for fall) and a shoulder bag. Once the weather starts to get a little cooler I plan on layering this shirt dress over jeans - my answer to fall's chilly-but-not-cold temperatures.
