Gossip

As I read through my beloved gossip blogs (I know, I know, just shoot me now!) I spotted this recent photograph of Gossip Girl star Blake Lively:

I love the simplicity of a shirt dress. The sky-high hemline of Blake's keeps it cool and youthful, while the half-sleeves provide an extra bit of coverage to prevent the frock from falling into skank territory. I also like that the buttons only go halfway down, and the color-blocked detail is quite chic. Though Blake keeps her accessories to a minimum, I would personally cinch it all in with a cute little belt.

I haven't the slightest clue as to who the maker of this dress is -- and lord knows I'm far too lazy to look it up -- but I would really love to add a similar item to my wardrobe. I have a deep respect for simple pieces such as this. There are times when one does not want to put too much effort into an ensemble -- one such as, ahem, myself -- so I will definitely be on the lookout for something like this adorable shift.
