Hey hey beauties! Today I am bringing you the T-Shirt Dress. Ah yes, the potato sack of fashion. Is this not the cutest flowy dress ever?! like I can’t handle it. Also, it is definitely an essential item for summer. I love how loose fitting this dress is. It is so comfortable and effortlessly fashionable. Like come on?! You can’t beat this dress guys.  You can wear this dress just as it is, in all it’s potato sack glory or you can dress it up and play with the style  to make it a super duper fashionable look.So, wanna know how style this adorable dress? Just keep on scrolling, you don’t wanna miss this.

Let it Hang




There is so much room to move in this dress, it is so loose fitting and so so so comfortable. This is my favorite way to wear this dress, all loosey goosey. This is the perfect way to wear this dress for those days you want to look super cute but you don’t want to put a lot of effort in your look. I get it, its summer, its hot, sticky muggy, and there is nothing worse, I mean nothing worse than wearing constricting clothing on a hot summer day. I don’t care who you are, no one enjoys wearing skin tight shorts and skin tight tank tops like we see on pinterest. That is just not logical on those sweaty days. So we go for a dress, preferably something that is loose. Wearing this dress just as it is, is the best way to wear it on those hot summer days! It’s fashionable, protects you from the sun, light weight, and loose fitting. It’s the holy grail of summer dresses. Need I say more?

Tie a Flannel or a Chambray Top Around Your Waist

Now if wearing this dress as it is, in all its potato sack glory isn’t your thing, you can opt for adding a cute flannel or chambray top around your waist. This just screams “I’m not trying to be fashionable I just am!” Am I the only one that is amazed that tying anything around your waist is back in fashion? 3 years ago we all would have cringed, now I don’t feel put together if a flannel is not tied around my waist, weird. Anyways, I really enjoy wearing this dress this way as well. It’s super cute, and just gives little more relaxed vibe to the outfit. 

Wear A Hat


Depending on style you are going for. You will want to choose the proper hat to accessorize with. If you want a more girl next door/fashionista feel grab a cute straw sunhat, these are really in style right now, so it shows you are with the fashion trends, and you’ll know your killin the look. But if you want that “I love dresses but I also enjoy being a tomboy!” add a baseball cap to any outfit. Mix the two and you all the sudden become Sporty Spice. So,grab your favorite snap back ladies! Cause this is such a super cute look. Regardless of what hat you choose, you’ll  still kill it. Cause hats make everything better, am I right?!

Pick The Right Shoes


 Just like the hats, picking the right shoes will say a lot about your outfit, and the style you are going for. I decided to pair this dress with cute black strappy wedges, and of course my white converse. Because I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t try to wear my converse with everything haha! I loved the way the wedges looked with the  sun hat, and the loose hanging dress, it just screams fashionista and I love that, but I’m not going to lie;I enjoyed the look with the converse and the baseball cap a lot more. Wearing the dress, with the converse for one makes the outfit more practical, but there was something about the the baseball cap, and the converse that I just really liked, maybe its the small town girl inside me. I don’t know but I loved it.

Cute hair

I enjoy wearing hats to keep the sun out of my eyes and for that extra pop to any outfit. I also understand not everyone likes hats, and that’s okay. So, I’m talking to you my non hat wearing ladies! I believe cute hair needs to be a rule with any outfit you wear. It just ties everything together! Having a cute hairstyle is like the icing on the cake, you need it. I decided to do a basic side dutch braid, I thought this hairstyle went well with the simple outfit.  Also, when I say a cute hairstyle I don’t mean some elaborate hair style with perfect curls or anything. You could literally throw your hair up in a messy bun and still slay this look. Its that simple 🙂 Whatever hairstyle you choose, you’re still gonna kill it.
