Luv at first sight: The T-shirt dress

GaptshirtdressI swoon. I lust. My weekend wardrobe has a new BFF: the T-shirt dress.

I've been exploring weekend wardrobe solutions and finding that Saturday morning chic is hard to get right. What's pulled together, but not overly done up? Washable for those who "glow" in the Florida heat? Can transition from errand day to casual date nite?

Answer: the humble t-shirt dress.

I recently picked one up in a bright aqua marine from the Banana Republic outlet in Ellenton. Tossed on a light scarf in my closet and a cheap bangle. The verdict: My husband whistled approvingly. Even better, he didn't follow up with his occasional "aren't you dressed up for a Saturday?" comment. 

I wore it to the park. To a coffee shop. To a backyard BBQ. It felt and looked good everywhere I went.

Bless the t-shirt dress. And tell me: Who else has fallen in love at first sight?
