OOTD - Striped T-Shirt Dress


What - a weekend post?  It's a total blogger faux-pas!  Well, welcome to the weekend Noobs and please excuse me as I try to get back onto a regular blogging schedule as a result of a particularly crazy week.  I wore this outfit out on a scorchingly hot and humid Friday night and, as glad as I am to be finally experiencing a heat wave, it's a little too late since I'm already in the fall fashion frame of mind.  Enter my newest favourite item - a navy striped t-shirt dress.  Add my much-loved toeless booties and a trusty felt floppy hat (perfect for concealing hell-week hair) and I feel as though I've made a nice compromise between late summer weather and fall fashion.  Read on for more photos of this transitional summer-to-fall look and all outfit details.




Dress - Zara (sold out - similar), Floppy Felt Hat - Forever 21 (similar)
Booties - Steve Madden Nonstp, Purse - Marc by Marc Jacobs Percy



I am having a love affair with t-shirt dresses lately.  Chalk it up to a few too many patio dinners and cocktails, but the loose fit of this style of dress is exactly what the doctor ordered.  I'm also enjoying the effortlessly put-together look a simple t-shirt dress can give and look forward to pairing mine with some fall knits and a pair of booties.


I hope you have a great weekend and here's to getting back to regularly scheduled blog posts.

  1. Love this outfit! It's similar to my Madewell dress, so easy and effortless. I picked up a long sleeved one for fall as well. A girl can never have too many stripes!!

  2. I love this dress on you! I've been wanting one myself but I think I'm a little too hippy to pull them off. Also, I always blog on the weekends! Haha. It's fun to do whatever you want. ;)

    1. Yes Kimi, it's true blogging should be about doing what YOU want - after all it is your personal space! Sometimes I get so fixated on my schedule and routine that it is almost painful to deviate from it - lesson learned!

    1. I highly recommend the Marc by Marc Jacobs bags! They tend to be a little heavy, but this cross body Percy is just so practical - it comes with me whenever I travel!

    1. I say definitely make the jump and get the similar dress! I find it so versatile - I've been wearing it on it's own or with a chambray shirt layered and tied on top :)
