Do you ever get those days when your outfit just doesn't work no matter what you do? 
Well it happens to me and it usually leads to the contents of my wardrobe being discarded all over the floor, it's so frustrating! But I have found the answer to days like this and it comes in the form of a t-shirt dress.

Yes, the humble t-shirt dress, an item that everyone should have in their wardrobe. They are versatile, comfortable and come in a huge range of styles + fabrics. What I love the most about the t-shirt dress is that it's something you can just throw on and be ready within a matter of minutes, minimal effort is required as the dress does all the work for you.

So for this weeks look I am wearing this awesome t-shirt dress I was sent the other month by a brand called One Above Another. This dress is definitely extra. The whole thing, including the graphic print, is totally covered in sequins. Now I know what your thinking, all those sequins must make it so itchy and uncomfortable to wear, but fortunately that is not the case with this dress as it is fully lined. As for the fit, it's oversized, boxy shape hangs really well off the body, the weight of the garment really helps with this.

For this particular look I have given the dress a more casual vibe with my Dr Marten boots, a sheer kimono and fishnets, but it can just as easily be dressed up with a pair of heels or knee high boots. This dress really allows for minimal styling and would work just as well on its own. It's perfect for days when you just don't have the energy or time to put an outfit together as it gives the illusion that you've put a lot more effort into what your wearing than you really have!

How do you cope with days like this, do you have any styling tricks, let me know in the comments below!

  1. Love how you styled the dress! I also like to throw on t-shirt dresses when I am not sure what to wear on summer days.
