Totally underrated and pushed aside, at least in my closet, is the hardworking t-shirt dress – and why?
Not exciting enough? To simple? Not worth the splurge?
Whatever the reason, when I worked through my closet in June – this was largest void in my closet.
Everyone can use a easy-going knit dress or two, especially in the summertime. One you can just throw on with a pair of simple hoops and fun sandals – off you go!
It’s easy, when you know what you are shopping for. For me, I think of what my favorite t-shirt shape is, and go from there.
We all love our favorite tee, what is yours?
Is it a boatneck, tank style, racerback, cap sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, vneck; slub cotton, stretch knit, 100% cotton? You get the idea.
For me, I love a racerback, or v-neck tank style – these work best with my narrow shoulders.
Truth is, I have been looking for a simple black knit summer dress for awhile, and was thrilled when I came upon this simple v-neck, StyleMint knit sheath over at ThredUp for $17.95.
Easier than throwing on a t-shirt and jeans – you don’t need the bottom.
Done, with one pull over the head!

Before I go, here’s a quick update on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchases:
I picked up this James Perse rushed henley dress (left) over at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
A great transition piece, and available in 3 colors (HERE) ; I plan to layer this with a denim jacket, leather jacket, kimono sweater, poncho..you get the idea.
This is a fabulous piece and if you love James Perse, I say go for it. I bought the dress in both the tan above (which is actually more olive in person), and the eggplant. I planned to only keep one, but I love the style so much I am thinking of keeping both. The Joie cardigan (right) is a fabulous piece as well,and I can’t wait to wear it in November (LOL!). It’s cute styled over the James Perse dress as well.
The Missoni Stripe Poncho (HERE in 2 colors) is a keeper. I can see this styled with a dress or skirt as here or with denim for Fall.
Tory Burch ‘Dillan’ sandal (HERE) goes with just about everything;
Do you own a t-shirt dress?
Do you find knit dresses, to be an easy go-to?
Anyone else pick up the James Perse dress over at the Anniversary Sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is till on, but prices go up soon!
Don’t miss out!
Have a fabulous weekend!
