I'd saved this dress on my Nordie's wish list because it checked a lot of boxes (natural fibers, shirt collar neckline.) Then Angie featured the pink plaid version, and after kellygirl got the white striped one, I knew I had to try it. It's a lot of fun to wear, and the fabric is much higher quality than I would have expected for a dress under $50 USD. Pics 1-3 are the blue stripe in XS, 4-6 are the blue in S, and 7-8 are the ivory in S. I've almost completely decided to keep the S in blue because the XS was a bit restrictive when walking up and down stairs. The sizing is a bit variable- the white S is 1/2" narrower in the shoulders, but 1-2" wider in the bust than the blue one (so exactly the opposite of what I need in terms of fit). I love the crispness of the white, but felt more comfortable in the blue.

Thoughts on shoes? Or general silhouette and color of shoes I could look for? Many of the ones in these pictures are on their last summer, so I'm committed to finding replacements that would work with this dress.
