May 14 - Striped T-Shirt Dress and White Blazer

(Blazer by H&M (old, similar), Dress by Target (last year, similar), Shoes by H&M (recent but not online, similar), Necklace by Aldo (old, similar), Ring by Tiffany & Co., Blush by NARS in "Orgasm", Lips by CoverGirl in "Hibiscus")


 (Jacket by Forever 21)









Hi everyone!  How are you?

This is a great t-shirt dress that I bought from Target last summer.   Most of the clothes I buy are for work, or can at least work double-duty, with the exceptions of jeans (which I have far too many pairs of, just ask my Mum!).  This dress I decidedly purchased not for work.  It's a casual cotton-jersey material and has a body-conscious fit which are two things, especially combined, I try to avoid wearing to work.  Well, here I am, wearing it to work!  The blazer and pointed toe flats I think raise the profile of this humble t-shirt dress to office-appropriate - what do you think?
I remember choosing this outfit because I needed to go to a dinner right afterwards with family that was visiting from New Zealand, and wanted something that could transition easily.  For dinner I simply dropped the blazer and wore the cargo jacket shown above.  It's new, by the way, and from Forever 21.  It's super lightweight, meaning if it's cold you better layer up, but it really is a wardrobe workhorse.  Believe the hype!  I have been reaching for it as my go-to Spring jacket, only switching up to my grey trench coat when I need to be dressy, or my polka dot rain coat when the forecast looks drizzly.

I hope you have a super happy weekend!
