Street Ready with a Tee Dress

Hello my beautiful friends! I love dresses and tee shirts and when I found this tee dress (for only $15) it was meant to be! Dresses aren’t always meant to be for dressing up. In fact, for weekends I love to be street ready and dress them down! With the change of a few accessories you can take a basic dress and change the entire look. Just think what this look would have been like if I wore heels, a sweater, and clutch? Or how about boots, leggings, and a scarf? The ideas are limitless! Read on to see how I took a basic tee dress and made it street ready.stylemissmolly_7710_blog



To be honest, I used to feel out of place in my leather jackets. Now I couldn’t imagine my life without them! Over the years, I have collected many faux moto jackets in various colors and find them a great way to layer in the fall. Bringing a leather jacket into this look, not only supported a great fall trend but also brought a hint of edge to the look. Find one you love and I promise you’ll start incorporating them more often into your looks!



With the dark leather jacket and quilted leather purse I wanted to add something to bring attention to a more day time and laid back look. A pop of a bright white tennies totally did the trick! In the end, I loved how this combination ended up transitioning from black to white with the gray in between.



Finally I accessorized the look with my two favorite Mirina Collections pieces. This necklace called Max and double bead earrings polished off the look. I love both pieces so much! Feel free to use my code ‘missmolly’ to get 20% off.



Hope you enjoyed this look! Comment below with how you love to style your tee dresses. I’d love to hear from you!

Keep smiling!

    I love this simple, yet chic look on you Molly. I’ve had my leather jacket for years and I think it’s about time to replace it – It’s such a staple in your closet and you’re totally rockin’ it:-).

      Thank you Elizabeth! I had to upgrade my leather jacket! They last a while, so it’s OK to take the time to find the perfect one you want!
