The Best Tee Shirt Dress (Half Off!)

Hello there! It’s been a while since I’ve done just a good ‘ol outfit post…no baby on my hip, wearing something that makes me feel wonderful and that I am excited to share with y’all, too. I am 95% mom and 5% blogger these days, and I’m not sure what my work/mom life will look like once baby number two is here, but for now I am embracing that 5% of time to jump on my computer and answer emails or just have some time to myself (…likely doing laundry…let’s be honest, ha!). About a month ago (before the quarantine and before so much in the world was uncertain and heavy), I met up with my friend and photographerAnna Szczekutowicz to grab coffee and catch up on life and shoot a few looks I’ve been loving lately. I felt pretty nervous and rusty getting back in front of a camera in the way I used to. I forgot how vulnerable it can feel…it’s been so long! Anna is so great though and helps direct and find flattering angles…I know when she sends me the photos I don’t need to be nervous to click “open.” Plus, there are a handful of new pieces I’ve been wearing so much lately that I’ve really wanting to share with y’all. (This tee shirt dress is one of them!).

Sometimes I wonder if posting “normal” content is appropriate or not – but then I think about the type of content that brings me joy and lessens my anxiety…and it’s definitely stuff that feels light and happy, like a simple outfit or watching @bennydrama7 videos on Instagram (in particular, his Shawn Mendes impersonations…).

This dress is from Backcountry and it’s currently 55% OFF! It is SO SOFT and has pockets (hooray!). I’m 5’6 for height reference and wearing a size small. It also comes in a pretty muted aqua color if you’re like me and re-wear the same things over and over! 😉 It’s hands down my favorite tee shirt dress…plus it fits great if you’ve got a growing baby bump! My cardigan is from the Aritzia store in Austin. It’s sooo cozy and has a nice thickness to it. Definitely elevates an outfit!

This is a more dressed up way to style a tee shirt dress, but if you’re generally super casual like me, nix the cardigan and pair it with Birkenstocks (weather permitting). Simple and cute…and can’t beat that price!

I hope you are all staying safe (and sane) and doing your best to get through this crazy time. It’s amazing how we are all in it together – each doing our part to stay home and stop the spread. Though the monotony can get to me at times, I have enjoyed seeing the beauty of our home from a new perspective. The safety and health of family is so much greater than anything else right now. Sending love to y’all, and thanks so much for stopping by. XO
