Linen Shirtdress at the Dahlia Shed

How To Wear A Tunic Sweater
By Jess
30 Jul 2018

I am slightly embarrassed to admit I forgot about this dress. I think that means I need to organize and clean out my closet, again. I got this linen shirtdress when I visited Anthropologie back in May, but at the time it was still way too cold to think about wearing it. Fast forward to a very hot and humid summer weekend and I was trying to find something lightweight and chic, and it was already in my closet (actually buried on a rack in my office which is a complete disaster right now).

It was the perfect option for a hot summer morning. So Craig and I woke up extra early to go shoot in Amy’s flower fields at the Dahlia Shed. It’s crazy to me that up until a year ago I honestly didn’t really know much about dahlias (I hadn’t seen many of them either). Now, they are hands down my favorite flower.

Trips to the Dahlia Shed are basically the highlight of my week. Shooting in the fields felt even more special and I think I stopped at every variety to say “no this one is my favorite.” If you’re local, this September there’s a workshop at the Dahlia shed where you get to walk through the fields (they aren’t open to the public) and create your own floral design with Kim from Greenlion.
