Shirt-Dress, 5 of 5

I hope this little shirt-dress experiment has been as fun for you as it was for me.  Ok, it probably wasn't quite as much fun for you...but I hope it was somewhat enjoyable nonetheless. 

Styling the shirt-dress this way seemed inevitable, but I really wasn't sure how I would comfortably fit all the extra fabric into a pair of pants.  Believe me, I tried a few times and fought a whole lot of lumps and bumps on my backside.  In the end, I won the battle of the bulges by simply folding up the shirttail.  I had to pick out a pair of pants that were a bit big on me and were of a substantial fabric.  Enter:  the corduroy trousers (thanks guys!).  That's me, conversing with my clothes again.

Speaking of clothes, I hope to have some cruise-wear to show you next week! 

And speaking of next week, if all goes to plan, there will be a poll up on Monday for you to vote for your favorite shirt-dress style!  I hope to see you then!

A happy, happy weekend to you all!
