Essential Little T-shirt Dress & 5 Ways to Wear It

T-Shirt Dress // Quilted Slip On Shoes // Tote Bag

Yesterday was the FIRST day we had sunshine in some time. It was a nice reminder that spring is FINALLY just around the corner. This has been the longest winter ever with more snow than we have had in a long time. I am ready to trade my layers and winter boots for sandals and dresses!

Speaking of dresses, I found the essential little t-shirt dress when shopping for spring pieces. A good t-shirt dress is one of my spring and summer staples. Not only are they comfortable but they are easy to transition from chilly spring days to a hot summer night. As a teacher, a t-shirt dress is also a MUST for the comfort and ease it offers.

This little striped number from Ellen DeGeneres’ EV1 Collection at Walmart is a perfect piece to take from the classroom to the weekend and is so versatile (see all the ways to style it below). It has just the right amount of stretch and is SO comfy! I love the length, which isn’t too short for work and is just long enough to knot the hem…a trend I love! The subtle heart patch on the front adds a sweet, unique touch. The whole EV1 collection at Walmart is SO cute. Easy pieces to mix, match and layer with fun prints that pop for spring!

Shopbop Spring Sale 2019

One of the best sales of the year is here!! The Shopbop Buy More, Save More event! I look forward to this sale every year as it is always the time I stock up on new spring goodies. It’s the perfect time of year to stock up on designer goodies or new pieces for the upcoming season. Every year, I scour the website finding the best pieces to update my wardrobe with. I usually invest in items I know I will get a ton of wear out of, and previous years sale picks are still some of my most worn items!

What am I planning on snagging this year? A new swimsuit or two, a fun summer bag, some espadrilles and a few new accessories. This is the BEST time to get that designer piece you’ve been eyeing, or pick up a great new pair of denim, my favorite thing to buy during the sale!

Check out a few of my favorite sale picks below (a few of which are currently on their way to me), and some of my closet staples (my all time fave denim shorts are part of the sale!).

Happy shopping babes!!

Shopping Spring Finds

Truth time.

I had the BEST intentions of getting back to posting regularly, but January has been so tough guys! Not only is it freezing outside and so hard to take photos, It’s also hard to shoot during the work week. To top it off it gets dark SO early that there is rarely enough time to snap a few photos. The struggle is real! With how cold it’s been I’ve got spring on the brain. I’ve been dreaming of warm weather, more daylight and all the cute new spring styles. I’ve spent lots of time perusing the Shopbop site and adding all the spring essentials to my cart. Shopping for cute spring styles definitely makes the winter chill a little easier! Check out some of my favorite Shopbop spring finds below!

Summer Midi Dress

Nell + Rose ‘Florence’ Dress // Sandals // Crossbody Straw Bag // Sunnies, similar here

Confession…I have worn this dress 3 times in the last week! It is the ultimate summer midi dress and I can’t get enough of it! Coming from one of my favorite boutiques, Nell + Rose, this dress is meant for summer! From the breezy linen fabric to the neutral palette, it’s the perfect dress for all of your warm weather needs! I have worn this cutie to work (paired with a denim jacket), to church and out and about this past weekend. I love how versatile it is! Have a laid-back summer wedding coming up? Pair this cutie with some heeled sandals or wedges to dress it up. If you buy one thing this summer, let it be this dress…I am telling you, you won’t regret it!
