One T-Shirt Dress & Saddle Bag. Three Ways.


Okay, so this may be the coolest t-shirt dress I have ever worn. The raw edges, uneven hem line & funky pockets all make it so interesting…and fun. I stumbled across it while perusing Wilt on Amazon and hello. Thank you, yes. I will add an anything-but-basic basic to my Summer outfitting line-up. Done and done.

It just so happened that as I was clicking around, saddle bags were recommended on the bottom scroll bit (damn you, Amazon). I noticed a pale pink Steve Madden and I can rarely ever pass up a Madden (Steve has always done me right), so ooooh shit. I had to get both. Darn. “Yeh, babe…it’s for woooorrkkkkk.” *wink wink*

Well. It turns out that they were both made for each other and, coincidentally,…all of my summer footwear, so. BAM. Yes. I am winning at Summer already.

Outfit Details

dress: Wilt Shifted Pocket Tee Dress – this is not your ordinary t-shirt dress. Raw edges, an uneven hem and funky pockets all make this dress very deconstructed and cool. It’ll be a staple for me this Summer. TTS.

bag: Steve Madden Swiss Cross Body Bag – Oh, Steve Madden. You speak to my soul. This is a fantastic bag…and soft! I was surprised by by how much it can hold, too. Not to mention, it comes in four different color options.

sandals: Sole Society Cage Lace-Up Sandal – great pair of sandals with a lower heel. I like the taupe color, because they go with quite a lot. TTS. I added my  Koko Sandals from Sole Society to the collage, as well, because they are a favorite of mine right now and go very well with the tee dress.

shades: BP. 55mm Round Sunglasses – I like them so much that I have bought them twice (I broke the first pair). They are a fun pair of shades to wear…and affordable.

earrings: BP. sold out – love these simple Juliette Circle Earrings


Today is the last day of school. Yay! Summer! I am both excited and terrified.

  1. I love t-shirt dresses! I’m curvy, so I had always avoided them because of clinging, until I found the LuLaRoe Carly. It flares out nicely and I love how easy it is to look cute. I’ve been wearing mine with Blowfish Granola sandals and my olive green nylon diaper backpack. It totally makes me look more put together than I actually am. Always a win!

    • I’m a Carly lover too!!! First of all, I can wear an XS in it (and I can’t wear anything XS) so vanity sizing for the win! I love the high low hem, and how it doesn’t hug anything. I wear my solid navy one to work with heeled sandals and a chunky necklace (business casual office), and on the weekends with flats or supergas.

      • I too love the sizing. 😉 I have a tonal gray one with a really subtle dot print so it can be dressed up for down.

  2. Camille you say the dress is TTS – I’ve never bought this brand before, I’m usually an XS in everything, but Wilt’s size chart says my chest would be a size small?!). Should I stick with XS or does the dress/brand run small in the chest (that you notice)? You look FAB, love the whole look. Thanks, laura

    • not at all. I mean, yes…so it doesn’t have an adjustable strap, but I actually found that I liked it a bit higher up, not hanging near my bum.

  3. Hi Camille,
    Are you wearing color sulfur? Love the color you are wearing (looks like navy or ink) on website it looks more grey. Thanks
