Maxi Shirtdress for Spring

I have always loved a shirtdress; they fit my personal style aesthetic of being classic yet available in great prints, I'm able to adjust the neckline, and I love how they can dress up or down with a change of footwear and accessories.

So when I was checking out Chico's New Arrivals, I was immediately drawn to this green printed maxi dress. A poly/spandex blend, this dress looks like matte jersey yet has a bit of stretch for comfort and fit.

With a self-belt (meaning I can remove it and replace it with something else), pockets, and fabric that will roll up and stay in place, this is a dress I can glam up for Easter or Mother's Day or dress down with Birkenstocks and a sun hat for casual weekend wear.

Having a large bust, some shirtdresses don't fit me on top. I never have that problem with Chico's, though I do have a safety pin between two buttons so it stays closed at the bust even if I bend and stretch. No need for security anywhere else, even when sitting I found everything stayed closed and covered.

For now while the weather is still occasionally chilly, I styled this maxi shirtdress with tall heeled boots. However, this dress could look great with flats, pumps, flat and heeled sandals, and even a pair of trendy sneakers.

Unfortunately, at the time of writing this, this maxi shirtdress from Chico's is out of stock in a lot of sizes. Below I have a gallery of maxi shirtdresses in a variety of sizes and pricepoints:

    I like the rainbows in the shots! Just a PSA for anyone else looking for a similar dress:

    I have a maxi shirtdress from Zara, only it’s kelly green with ivory spots (called ‘the Marilyn’). They seem to do a different version of it every spring/ summer, though – I also have a black floral iteration. It always comes with pockets, & the viscose material is soft but lightweight – I live in a subtropical climate & still thrive in that dress during 90%+ humidity!

    Love the dress!

    Your comment “Oscar came with us” reminded me to ask who takes your photos? If it’s your husband, kudos to him! The angles and lighting and clarity are always stunning.

      Yes, my husband takes all my photos! He’s so talented. Before the blog, he was an event and wedding photographer!
