Morning! I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Ah, nothing like a tee-shirt dress. Who says you can’t look smart, but dress casual and put together? The tee-shirt dress is AS comfortable as my nightgown, but that would get some funny looks in public! Instead, this Soft Surroundings rose pink tee-shirt dress ( the Laredo Dress) is perfect for a day out running errands, for an outdoor summer concert, or at the beach. This is very casual for me, but in these settings I would wear this for sure. I loved the embroidery on the dress and the midi length as well. I have shared a post on the Tshirt dress before here – Tee Shirt Dress for Spring.
Anniversary evening out
Before I talk more about the outfit, hubby and I celebrated our 17 year Anniversary over the weekend. Yes, everything happens in July! We went to eat in Uptown ( I am from Pittsburgh where it took me awhile to say “Uptown”, we call it ‘Dahntahn” in the ‘Burg)! We then went to one of our favorite discoveries of Charlotte, the “Jazz Room”, which houses an intimate setting for jazz performers and their audience.
We went to see a jazz guitarist perform music by Kenny Burrell, an American jazz guitarist extrodinairre from the 1950’s whose influences include Django Rheinhardt, and Charlie Christian, two amazingly proficient jazz/swing guitarists of the time. I had wanted to go to the show and had a great time. I feel I need a little extra motivation to pick up my guitar and play again, and usually hearing great performers will give me that nudge.
It is hard to believe hubby and I have known each other now- including dating for 20 years! Time does seem to whiz by!
I also received these white leather slides from Soft Surroundings, as i have wanted a pair of slides for some time now, as they are trending for summer, and look so easy! Just slide your feet in and go! Have a read – Trending Now- Slides for Summer
However, one thing I notice about most slides is that there is not much support or cushioning. Enter these slides by Seychelles on the Soft Surroundings’ site. I love the leather knot detail in white- going with anything this summer and the 1′ lug platform padded sole that give cushion and comfort. Yes! I had my slides for the summer, and pictured wearing them with shorts and dresses.
This dress is very casual for me. I am used to dressing up a bit more, but felt that the embroidery design was lovely and I liked the rounded hem at the bottom of the dress. This is an XS and very roomy still. I would certainly pack this dress for the beach, with the slides and be able to pop it on after wearing my swimsuit for a fun outfit. Slip on sneakers would be another shoe choice I would wear with this dress.
Excuse the lack of painted toe nails! It’s on my to do list this week! 🙂
Now, which way to the beach?
Do you have a tee shirt dress in your wardrobe? Id love to hear how you style it.
