PSA: Before you look at these photos, note that wearing a t-shirt dress and heels while sitting in a pile of beautiful ivy is not ideal. This does not come recommended.

Onward, to the dress! I found this little Just Female number at El Kartel the other week on a walk home through Chinatown. I wore it pretty much every day until the weather wouldn’t allow it anymore! Some don’t think you can dress up a casual t-shirt dress, but I like to think that you can.

Personally, I feel that if you keep your outfit simple (ie. clean and basic sandals and thin jewelry) it will elevate the style of the t-shirt dress. Adding texture can also help your outfit stand out. I did this with the faux-leather and faux-suede clutch from H&M.

The ideal functionality of this outfit is that you can switch out the heels for some flat sandals and it can be worn casually!

PS. My black Steve Madden Stecy sandals are on sale via Nordstrom, check them out HERE BUT even cheaper via Zappos HERE.
