Hey friends!!! Happy October!!! Hands down my favorite month of the year and next week you will see why 🙂 I hope you all enjoyed your weekend! Mine was full of rest, family and shopping. I would say it was a “perfect weekend” but sadly we are still bearing temps in the mid 80’s :/
So today I want to share a cute yet functional outfit that can be dressed up or dressed down and is practical for all of my friends in the South that want to dress for fall! I will be showing you 2 ways I style this affordable t-shirt dress 🙂
First up is a casual look. I paired this dress with a denim jacket around my waist -because let’s face it… it’s 80 outside and 40 degrees in the grocery store. You will want something to put on when you’re being blasted with air conditioning and this jacket is also a great way to accentuate your waist! My exact denim jacket is no longer sold but here is one that is almost identical and another option that is not distressed here! I consider a jacket like this a wardrobe staple that can be worn in multiple seasons for many years! To make the outfit a little more interesting I added some leopard sneakers (go figure.. I have been living in leopard shoes for the past few months haha) and a cross body bag!
Now I am going to show you how you can dress this up a bit for a dinner or date look! Put the jacket on and add some cute mules or booties! It is THAT simple!!! I also swapped the crossbody for a structured bag but kept the same hoop earrings and my usual jewelry!

I hope this post can help inspire some creative outfitting with items in your wardrobe! And if you don’t already own a t-shirt dress, I love this one!! It is a pretty good length (I am 5″9 for reference), washes well and great price!!
I’d love to hear which of these 2 outfits you’d wear! Leave a comment and let me know 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!!
