It’s taken me this many days of life to learn that long sleeve dresses aren’t just for cool weather. And now I’m loving the ways I’ve found to style this denim dress outfit!
I seem to operate under this silly notion that long sleeves are only for cold weather. I’m not ready to cover my arms in 90 degree heat. I am trying to open my mind to the versatility of long sleeves even when the sun is out, however. This Eileen Fisher (another fabulous B Corp) denim shirt dress is so comfortable that I want to style it as much as possible.
