Due to my failure to successfully plan this weeks blog posts, you’re getting two style posts back to back. This one is coming late and got put together fairly quickly too. It’s actually what I’m wearing today. That never happens.
I got a raise (yay) and went to Target and got this knit t-shirt dress after seeing it on Kendi
and now it’s sold out online (boo). Three were purchased in the hour I was in the store. $20 for a cotton knit dress that’s so comfortable I could live in it even when it’s 90°? Small price to pay. It has a short zip in the back at the neckline. It’s an exposed zipper, which I think gives the dress some character since it is so plain. I took one size up from my normal size to get it to a length I liked and that would be office appropriate. This dress is going to get remixed a million times, so get ready.
There are so many things I want to say in this post, but I’m pretty sure my thoughts aren’t going to be organized to say much. I’ve been conducting interviews at my office for two weeks. Two weeks of trying to figure out who someone is in 30 minutes or less makes your mind mushy. First week, I found a person I loved, offered her a job, and she didn’t take it. That was hard. Finally interviewed someone today that I liked. Hopefully she will take the job.
Also, I tried the bun form again with my hair straightened and I like how it works better than when my hair air dries or if my hair is damp. Great loose curls come out when my hair is damp, but the form doesn’t stay in a circle. It’s been great to do something nice that I have an alternative for my hair. I’m hoping to get better at braiding my hair too.
What do you do with your long hair during the summer?
I am not judging, you know how much I love your outfit posts. Utilitarian, leopard and stripes… YESSSS!
I actually have striped knit shirt dress also! I love how you styled it here. I would wear mine with my leather jacket for a bit of a bad ass look 😉
Great outfit and so flattering on you! I got lSt years version of this and love it!
I adore this entire look. Especially the shoes.
I'm a huuuge fan of simple dresses like this – you're right, this bad boy will get worn 100 ways 🙂 I love your style posts as well, so keep them coming!! 😉
Not going to lie, all the patterns made me think of you an your awesome style.
I have yet to find a lightweight enough leather jacket that I want to take home. That is a great idea though. And with black lace up boots?! It would look awesome.
Thanks Ginny! I was so surprised at how flattering it was when I tried it on since it has so little shape to it.
Haha! I'm already wearing it again. That post will go up on Monday. 🙂
Lemme tell ya about the shoes… well I'll tell the shoes story tomorrow when I do budgeting bloggers. This is so simple it really just fell together.
I think I mostly wore flats with it but boots would look damn good! I always have a hard time finding taller lace up boots that fit well! I also have found that leather jackets should probably be left to somewhat cooler days but with the wind where I live it usually works.
You look gorgeous!!! I am LOVING these style posts!! I am going to wear my knit dress tomorrow thanks to you. 🙂
I am new to your blog, and I have to say I AM LOVING IT! I'm excited to keep reading more posts. This dress is darling- I must try to find it at my local Target. I love how you styled it with the vest and belt to give it beautiful structure. I can't wait to see how you style it again. 🙂
I saw on IG that you're wearing it! I love it on you. It's crazy how flattering horizontal stripes can be! I love how you styled your dress. Inspiration for next time!
Abby– Thank you so much for your kind words! And thank you for finding me! Some of my favorite blogs I've found because they find me too. Can't wait to look at yours! Check back on Monday for the next outfit with this dress. I highly recommend you go to your Target and get one. It's one of those perfect summer pieces that you wear until you wear it out!
Looooooooooove it. Beyond love it. You're making me want this dress, and I've already tried it on and was meh about it! Maybe a second chance?! Because #stripesforever
You were meh about it?! It's Target! I would've assumed you already had it! lol. Wearing it by itself is probably something I'll never do, but it's a great piece for mixing up.
