Dressing Up A T-Shirt Dress

Dressing Up A T-Shirt Dress

Dressing Up A T-Shirt Dress

One of my favorite styles in life is a T-Shirt Dress. I like the grab and go ease of one that works for pretty much any occasion, especially in Nor Cal.  Which is apparent in all these previous posts I’ve done wearing a t-shirt dress.  When I ordered the Avon Ella Dress I, at the time, had plans of wearing it for Easter, but when it arrived I realized it was a t-shirt dress!  I wanted something a little more formal but in the process I realized you can dress up t-shirt dress for church, work, baby showers, wedding showers, spring flings… you name it spring event… All while being comfy in a loose t-shirt!

Step 1:  Shoes!

Step 1: Shoes!

Dressing up a t-shirt dress comes down to three things for me, shoes, accessories and a shaping layer.  Let’s start with the shoes... because let’s always start with the shoes!  In this case a classic nude patent pump from Nine West took my outfit more polished.  You could swap in your favorite classic flats with this one if you’re not a pump gal, or a clean nude heeled sandal for hotter weather.

Step 2:  Accessories

Step 2: Accessories

Next up, accessories!  A t-shirt dress is the perfect canvas for all your fun accessories, in this case we want to dress it up so what better than pearls and rhinestones!?  My pearly set is from Avon (which sold out but is coming back in stock this summer!)  A bit on the statement side this pearly necklace really just stands out and turns my OOTD very pretty.

Step 3:  Shaping Layer

Step 3: Shaping Layer

Lastly, a shaping layer.  What does that even mean?  It means that usually a t-shirt dress can be kinda shapeless, so, add in something that gives it some structure!  A jacket, a blazer, a cardigan or even a belt or scarf.  We’re looking to dress up a t-shirt dress so some structure does that.  The Avon Ella Dress has these fun ruffled sleeve details so I pulled out this long jacket/blazer with similar ruffled sleeve details in a perfect-for-spring blush color from Calvin Klein.  The pastel colors compliment while the jacket gives it that a polished finish.  Plus I like how the blush tone from the jacket pulls out the blush tone in the necklace.

An outfit ready for any Spring event!

Week O’Nautical: The Nautical Trench Coat

Week O'Nautical:  The Nautical Trench Coat

Week O’Nautical: The Nautical Trench Coat

This nautical trench coat is a bit of a unicorn item for me.  With the weather we’ve been having its kind of the perfect piece for a spring layer.  It is functional and seasonal and also classic in style with a classic nautical look in navy and white stripes.

My Unicorn Coat

My Unicorn Coat

Lets go back a few years when Cabi released this beautiful navy and striped trench coat. It was out of my budget and not the most practical purchase for me especially at a higher cost. I live in Nor Cal where coat weather is pretty much only Nov – Feb… and let me tell you I already have a billion coats. So I stalked it.  And stalked it.  And stalked it and wish I had it.  THEN I saw Express release their version, but again at a higher price than I wanted to spend on another coat I don’t need.  I had a great black trench coat from Express that Nicki found me on clearance back during the working at the mall, Elder Beerman days.  Probably like 2001 and that guy lasted me a good 15 years or more.  So when this striped version went on clearance and I was able to get it for pennies on the dollar I swooped it.  That was also in July so it hasn’t even been worn until this spring!  And now, my unicorn coat is home where it belongs, getting its full exposure on Week O’Nautical.

Navy and White Striped Trench Coat

Navy and White Striped Trench Coat

Even living in a climate where coats are super necessary this is still a style that should be a staple.  Come spring we’re all ready to leave all the black and grays of winter behind.  And hey, San Francisco is only a car ride away and I’ll always need a jacket there!

Shades of Nautical; Gold, White and Navy Stripes!

Shades of Nautical; Gold, White and Navy Stripes!

My OOTD is basically this Week O’Nautical look all over again, gold sweater and white jeans.  My sweater is also from Express circa early 2000’s and my jeans are some random brand from Marshalls.  Slides are Calvin Klein from Nordstrom’s Rack… and I’m loving them with white jeans!

I love gooooooold!

You might remember I also wore this trench over my spring dress here, for another look at its versatility.  I found quite a few of this exact jacket on Poshmark and Ebay but I’m also loving this BCBG one and this Rachael Roy one.  I’m hoping I can pack this puppy away soon, but it has been my must have go-to this week!

Modern Southern Belle: Word of Alicia

Pour yourself a cup of sweet tea, because I’m about to share with you how to be a modern Southern Bell…. from Nor Cal.  Being a Modern Southern Belle means you take the idea of a Southern Belle and make it your own.  For me, the Southern Belle elements I want to take and apply to my own life/look are classic beauty, bright colors and lady like designs.  I think I hit all of those in this Avon Shelley Cutaway Blouse from the Avon Savana Blooms collection.  This is my pick from the collection and how I’m making it modern.

Modern Southern Belle

My own modern take on a Southern Belle is pairing a beautiful colorful floral blouse with a pair of dark green ankle pants and lace up pumps!  For me wear to work dress pant is still lady like in styling but grounds the bold florals.  The deep green color and ankle cut styling makes it modern.  (pants, Old Navy; pumps, Nine West Outlet).  The lace up details and suede finish on my pumps take an otherwise classic pump to the next level.

Crop It Like It’s Hoooooooot

 

Crop It Like It's Hot

Crop It Like It’s Hot

 

Snooooooooooooop! When spring weather gets at you, crop it like it’s hot.  Crop it like it’s hot.  Crop it like it’s hot.

Just like my love for Skateboard P’s dope beats and all things Snoop-doggy-dog, this mark. Crop It Like It’s Hot Jumpsuit is hot for spring.  It just dropped at my eBoutique along with a ton of other new spring arrivals!!!

The official first day of Spring is not until Monday the 20th, but luckily we’ve been hit with some warmer spring temps early and this mark. Crop It Like It’s Hot Jumpsuit is the perfect piece for spring weather.  It features a cropped wide leg, which not only is more comfortable to wear, cooler in warmer temps, but also is a hot trend for 2017.

Cropped Wide Leg Trend

Another hot trend for spring is crochet and cutouts which we got going on with the details on this guy.  Since I wore this to work I layered a white cami underneath but you could go bare as well.

Cutout Details

Even though I think “age ain’t nothing but a number”, as a 30 something this is the kind of piece that is needed in your wardrobe.  It acts age appropriate while still being trendy and cute.   You can wear it for work with a cami and blazer or out by itself with or without the cami underneath.  And it has pockets, which any age can appreciate.

Pockets!  Yay!

Pockets! Yay!

If you are wearing it for a night out, bbq or any other outing try pairing it with a fun camera bag.  Camera bags are another hot trend this year instead of clutches/mini bags/wristlets.  This navy and green one is from mark. too, the Say Cheese Camera Bag is only $32.  “But (worn) only on the left side, yeah that’s the Crip side.”

To finish off my look I added the mark. Whimsical Ways Necklace and Whimsical Way Earrings. I love how these unique statement pieces really add to this monochromatic look.  I’m still wearing my favorite spring lip shade (see here)  Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Mellow Mellon.

Wear The Wide Leg Trend: mark. Navy Gazing Pants

 

Wear The Wide Leg Trend: mark. Navy Gazing Pants

Wear The Wide Leg Trend: mark. Navy Gazing Pants

A big trend this year is a swing back to wide legs and flare leg pants. I have to say I’m totally in support of this. Flare legs work better with my curvy shape so selfishly I like this. Wide legs are WAY more comfortable than peeling off those skinny pants that leave indentations on you, but they can be tricky to wear. Here are a few tips on wearing the wide leg trend.

Wide Leg Pants For Spring

Wide Leg Pants For Spring

The biggest thing to think of is proportion.  Wide legged pants can look good with a loose flowy top or a slim fitted one the point is to get the right proportion for you.  Because I am short and curvy a slim top fits best.  If you are more on the athletic build then a loose flowy top like the mark. light and layered top works well.  If you are pear shaped a cropped top loose or fitted would flatter.  Either of these styles can be worked on any body type the items just need to be proportioned to you.  In this look I went with a light spring sweater in a metallic grey from Express.  I tucked it in to keep it slim.

Lightweight Sweater Keeps It Looking Slim

I really like these mark. Navy Gazing Pants not only for the comfortable, lightweight material but also the deep navy shade and pockets!  These ones are the perfect pants for spring.  Functionally and fashion wise.  The have a side zip and a banded waist band.  The lightweight material is like a gauze making them really functional as the weather warms up.

Going back to proportions, the silhouette of wide leg pants really can carry bigger accessories, like a large cuff bracelet, statement necklace and oversized bag. These are all “larger” pieces but all worn together they work.  I’m wearing my spring fav the mark. Grows On You Bracelet with and old mark. necklace but you can get the same look with the mark. Free and Clear necklace.  My bag is the mark. Carry All Handbag (last seen here and here).

Wearing wide legs is not as intimidating as you might think if you get the proportions right.  I think they’re a must have to add this spring.  Plus they’re really really REALLY comfy.   Spring can be chilly so a pair of pants in an updated silhouette makes sense.  As the weather warms up I’ll ditch the spring sweater and leopard flats for an open lace top and sandals.  In addition to my spring outfit here get the deets on my spring makeup here in this post!

Florals for spring, groundbreaking. But there’s a reason florals in the spring just feel oh so right. Introducing a little floral punch automatically makes it feel a little more bright and fresh. In stead of your typical pastels I’m adding a dark floral kimono to my wardrobe for spring with the mark. Go With The Floral Kimono.

Dark Florals For Transitioning Into Spring

Dark Florals For Transitioning Into Spring

What I like about this piece is it is a statement on it’s own, it’s super versatile, nice quality, and a perfect transition piece. I struggle to find cute and casual wear but this piece is it!  How cute is it paired with a simple tank, dark denim and wine booties!?  But I easily seeing this paired with white denim or shorts come warmer weather, and over a maxi dress for a more boho vibe!

With a bold statement print like this you don’t need much to accessorize this look.  Just my go-to bag as of late the mark. Carry All Handbag and my Go For Baroque Ring and Earrings in the same tones!  Complete the look with a plum lip, I’m wearing the new Avon Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Hot Plum!  If you’re wearing purples this is such a hot shade right now!

Styling for the transiting seasons doesn’t have to be difficult.  Just find one spring worthy piece and add it to what you’ve already been wearing on the daily.  For instance I’m still wearing my dark colors (black, wine, etc) but this pop of spring definitely makes this the perfect transitional piece!

Why Not Rock A Blazer – mark. Tipping The Scales Jacket

Rocking Blazer - mark. Tipping The Scales Jacket

Rocking Blazer – mark. Tipping The Scales Jacket

Rock a blazer?  Why not!  This time of year, pre-spring if you will, is the perfect time to rock a blazer!  It’s still chilly so a jacket you can wear like a top is the best way to stay chic and warm.  You can rock a blazer with your work wear or your going out clothes which is why the investment is well worth it.  I’m currently rocking the mark. Tipping The Scales Jacket.  It isn’t like anything I already own with it’s take on a tux jacket made more casual with snakeskin print in a more casual material.

Rocking The mark. Tipping The Scales Blazer

Rocking The mark. Tipping The Scales Blazer

I rocked my mark. Tipping Scales Blazer with a black tee and blush columnist pants from Express.  There’s these slight pinky undertones to the grays in the blazer so my blush pants looked killer with it for a wear to work outfit.

Snakeskin and Blush

For my accessories I went with the Feathered Friend Necklace and Grows On You Bracelet from mark.  These accessories have been in heavy rotation lately!

How To Apply Spring Styling Tips

As we enter the last two weeks of spring into the official start of summer let’s embrace this beautiful weather.  Lucky for us we had a few styling tips from Jill from My Sweet Obsession and myself this spring.  If you missed them they were:  Easter, Spring Layers, and Spring Colors.  We shared how we style these trends in the spring… but cool… great… nice outfit, now what?  Here’s a little how to apply these tips in your every day dressing.  I took Jill’s tips from her Spring Layers post and applied them to my look.

Be Ready

mark. Luck Of The Drawstring Anorak

Jill suggested the mark. Luck Of The Drawstring Anorak, or a anorak jacket in general to keep you ready for whatever spring weather may bring.  It’s a lightweight jacket but also functional with a hood and adjustable sleeves.  So that’s just what I did, wore the mark. Luck Of The Drawstring Jacket.

Next Jill suggested layering lightweight scarf to help with chilly mornings and nights, by wearing it loose it doesn’t make you too hot.  I added the oversized mark. Four Seasons Scarf (now only $7.99!!!) for a spring floral print in a lightweight spring fabric.

Keep Things Simple

With the warmer weather Jill suggests going with simpler jewelry instead of your statement pieces so that’s just what I did with layering two simple bracelets (express and mark.) with my watch (avon).  The layered look still gives impact while keeping things simple and functional.

 

Keep It Cool

mark. Hit The Spot Flats

Jill’s final tip is to pair your look with some flats instead of sandals to avoid cold piggies.  I of course wore the only flats I love love love, the mark. Hit The Spot Flats (on clearance contact me to order).

Jills tips for layering this spring were easy to follow and apply.  I mean why read all these OOTD blog posts if you don’t get inspired and apply them to your own looks!?  It was Jill’s look that inspired me to order the mark. Luck Of The Drawstring Anorak and I’M SO GLAD I did!  It’s the perfect “IT” jacket missing from my closet and I’ve worn it a ton!  I can see it being a go-to all summer long especially for those cooler summer nights our around the bon fire or camping, etc.  I know in PA you ALWAYS needed a light jacket in the summer and I never had the right one!

Let’s get back in the swing of things with Wear And Share Wednesday with Living After Midnite!  This week Jackie and I picked the mark. Get In the Swing Skirt ($40) a blush toned, faux leather skater skirt!  If that’s not 3 major spring trends rolled up all into one killer spring skirt then I don’t know what is!

The mark. Get In The Swing Skirt offers a basic with interest that you can build many looks around.  I mean just look how Jackie from Living After Midnite paired hers with a fuzzy sweater and pumps for a sweet look.  After I saw Lucy Hale sport it in the mark. magalog I knew I wanted to re-create her look with the mark. Butterfly Bliss Tank ($20), mark. Rebel Chic Moto Jacket ($65) and mark. Bold Moves Bootie ($40).  Sidenote, how did I not have a black leather jacket in my wardrobe before!?!  Regardless this mark. Rebel Chic Moto Jacket is PERFECT!  The fit is impeccable and its not cropped so the small of my back doesn’t get cold!

Pairing a faux-leather blush skirt with more faux-leather seems almost like it would be too much, but because of the neutral tone of the skirt they actually pair really nice together.  Putting a burnt-out style graphic tank underneath helps break up the faux-leather and keeps the look simple and cool.  Lucy Hale was quoted calling this outfit “fiercely feminine” which I think sums it up perfectly!

If you’re hesitant in wearing a faux-leather skirt then getting one in a skater/swing cut and a neutral blush tone is an easy way to wear the trend without being too look at me!  Nothing about this says hooker like you mind might automatically go to when you hear faux-leather skirt.   Added bonus its not too short either!  You can shop the mark.
