On our recent roadtrip to Detroit, we decided to stop and stretch our legs in Youngstown, Ohio where we visited the Butler Institute of Art – the very first museum dedicated exclusively to American Art. The collection was very well thought out and had an eclectic and interesting mix of styles and time periods to peruse, including everything from fashion to folk art and impressionism to digital mediums. The best part for me was the museum’s size. It took us around 90 minutes to stroll through and visit each exhibit without feeling rushed, and it turned out to be just the break we needed before making the final stretch to Detroit.

Since the weather was nice, I opted for this festive poplin shirtdress that I scooped up on the clearance rack (my favorite place). I kept the look pretty casual with ankle boots, a fedora, and my beloved crossbody bag that’s always on steady repeat in my wardrobe. If you recall from my recent post, I could pretty much live in shirtdresses this time of year. This particular one travels really well thanks to the substantial fabric and bold print that helps to camouflage any wrinkles. It’s sold out online, but I’ve seen it pop up in stores recently – so you might still get lucky. If not, Anthro still has a pretty good lineup of gorgeous alternatives that I’ve shared above… including this beauty that I also picked up recently.
