Everyday Elevated || The T-Shirt Dress

I read somewhere, a few years ago, that you should look at your most worn items in your closet and buy more of them… duh, right? Well, being in a 9-5 job that wasn’t very glamorous (incredibly helpful yes, glamorous, no.) I, for some reason, filled my closet with pretty dresses to wear “to that wedding I have this summer….” or “in case we decide to go to a fancy dinner….” and in the end, I wore them once and then they never saw the light of day again (well, that’s not entirely true…. they were borrowed a lot…). All that to say, the above statement was like a brick in the face. Hellllll-O…. probably don’t need those dresses……

So, I became much more pragmatic. Tops, tees, jeans, flats, cardigans, and jackets became the items that filled my closet… and just like that, I was actually able to wear most of my items on a daily basis…. mixing and matching… dressing up and down. Yet, as much as I love my favorite everyday basics (read: jeans), to be honest, sometimes I’m like “again?…..” Then I stumbled across this t-shirt dress and thought I’d see how it fit with my other favorite items…. I mean, it’s as basic as a dress can get, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try….

I was sold the moment I put it on (I’m actually wearing it backwards because I like the v-neck line….) and immediately paired it with with my favorite sneakers, denim jacket, and cap. Such an easy throw on and go option… and casual enough to run errands in and chase around little miss. It’s a dress that’s the epitome of everyday living elevated…. but can also be dressed up with a cute pair of espadrilles + a suede jacket for a fun night out…..

A few other cute t-shirt dress options include this grey option with the cutest back details, grey and white striped v-neck dress, and this slouchy blue + white striped option.
