Top 5 T Shirt Dresses

T Shirt Dress
Year round I am hot. I am hot natured. A perfect summer dress is a constant go to. Sweaters are so cute and possibly my favorite winter style. They’re so cozy and comfy. I’m just going to say, “LoL” because unless I’m sitting very still I’ll be burning up in one. AND that’s when the outside temperature is less than my body temperature. If it’s below, let’s say, 50 to be generous I will be sweating. But, we’re not here to talk about sweaters. We’re here to discuss Dresses.
Knowing that I’m hot natured, imagine how miserable it is to wear jeans in this southern heat and arkansas humidity. Nearly impossible to bare. You can almost feel your jeans tighten against your body when you step outside on a hot summer day. For some reason, shorts aren’t acceptable all the time. *eyeroll* just kidding, but really, you can’t wear shorts everywhere. Insert Summer Dress. There’s nothing around your waist and almost nothing even touching the majority of your body. You can move, you can dance and you won’t sweat.
A couple of years ago, Nate and I went to a St. Louis Cardinals game for Memorial Day. I knew it was going to be hot. And I now know you’re basically sitting in a bowl and no air moves around the stadium. I wanted to wear a t-shirt dress. Nate did not understand why I would want to wear a dress to a baseball game. That was kind blowing to him. The revelation of a dress’ comfort and ultimately coolness rocked his world. After not being able to find a dress like I had in mind, I opted for a cardinals tank instead. It was miserably hot. I wished the whole time I’d searched harder and longer for a dress instead.
3 reasons I love a tshirt dress:
// They’re Comfy // They’re Cute // They’re Cool //
Dresses are something I can always get down with. They’re just easy. I always am up to purchase a new dress. But, I have my favorites. Being a dress connoisseur of sorts I’ve created a list of my top 5 t-shirt dresses. This list was cut down from a much longer list of dresses. I had to weed some out. 🙂 All the dresses that made the list are light weight, comfy, and wash great!

My Top 5 TShirt Dresses

1. Old Navy 2. Bobi  3. BB Dakota (Featured) 4. American Eagle 5. ASOS 
All 5 of these dress brands are different styles to cover all the bases. Plus, the J. Crew one from my Summer Resource Guide and favorites, According to Lynlee. There’s simple and classy to a little bit more edgy. You can style them however your heart desires too. They’re great for those of us who changes styles often. Sometimes, I want more rocker style and others I like more simple classic style. This is the perfect layering item to be able to change it up. These dresses are great for rainy summer days to pull on your rain boots and run out the door. Their versatility makes them worth their weight in gold.
Alothough, t-shirt dresses can’t be worn all day everyday, they can be worn often and to a lot of events. They’re dressy enough to wear to dinner or a concert but still casual enough to wear to a ball game or run errand on Saturday afternoon! What are your favorite Casual Summer Dresses?

Stripes. Plaid. Denim.

Stripes

Stripes. Plaid. Denim. Three things I love. You can almost never go wrong when mixing stripes and plaid. Throw in a little denim and this 90s girl may just have a heart attack. That’s my childhood in one outfit. By now it’s no secret that I am a sucker for comfort and dresses. Especially as spring is approaching all my dresses are coming out. To me there is nothing better than a dress on a hot summer day. It’s the coolest way to endure summer heat.

Stripes

This outfit is perfect for Spring and Summer! This flannel shirt is a tank top! How perfect is that? We can bring one of our favorite winter garments into the next seasons. Plaid over stripes is one of my favorite ways to mix prints. It’s a good look without getting too busy. Mixing one bold print with a simple print gives you a fun look with prints on prints and gives you the look like it was on purpose.

Stripes

Everyone need this pattern in their life, stripes are something you can NEVER go wrong with. You can wear stripes alone but, add some accessories to the stripes and you have a very cute outfit! I pair striped with everything. Like I said above stripes are the simple,geometric print to your bold print. Stripes are a closet staple. No debate on this one and no questions asked.

Striped dresses are just fun. All year long they give you a little fun. They’re basically a solid to me. This one is cotton and light weight. ( surprise, something in my wardrobe is light weight, right? ) It’s a tank dress at a great length. This dress isn’t entirely too fitted. You can relax and feel comfortable in this dress. Who doesn’t love that?

Plaid

Plaid is my go to, my ride or die, through the winter. I love plaid flannels through the winter. This flannel is a tank top. Sometimes I pair this dress with a long sleeved flannel as well. The Stripes compliment any flannel so nicely, like I said above. I love how this flannel gives that kind of rocker vibe. The combo of the two is all heart eyes.

Denim

Denim Jackets should be in everyone’s closet. They’re nice to throw on with anything. I love a denim jacket. This jacs been in my closet for years! Wearing denim on denim is in style right now. The light wash denim of this jacket looks so cute with my dark washed jeans! Plus, I can move in it. For years I hated wearing denim jackets because I felt so constricted in them. The fit of this one is loose. I believe it is a “Boyfriend fit” jacket. The sleeves aren’t tight but the body is fitted enough it doesn’t look too big.

Chuck Taylors

Chucks have been a love of mine for years. I have a red pair, two white pairs, and two green pairs. I love them.. High top Chuck Taylors to be specific. I love to wear them with dresses. It gives a playful feel to a dress. You get to be comfortable and cute. I’m always up for a little fun in my wardrobe. This look is perfect for an afternoon with friends, shopping, or a long day that you need to be cute but comfort is key too!

A playful outfit is good for the soul. This outfit will transition so nicely into the warmer weather! I instantly gravitate toward denim, stripes, and plaid. If I can put an outfit together that has any of those three things, I’m happy. But when I put together an outfit with all three I am over the moon. Try pairing prints on prints!

Be adventurous and have fun!
