Black Slip Dress & White T-Shirt

Can you believe it’s the first day of summer?! This year has flown by but I’m super excited for this summer because I’m (prayerfully) meeting some dissertation milestones! Sharing a closet with another person has forced me to seriously pare down my wardrobe, so I came up with a black, white, and striped summer capsule wardrobe that has enough outfits for every summer occasion! I’ll post the entire capsule soon, but in the meantime, here’s my first go-to summer outfit: a black slip dress & white t-shirt.

A white tee-shirt is a must have for every closet, and I’ve been loving the trend lately of layering tees underneath slip dresses. It automatically takes a semi risque, dressy piece and makes it super casual. When worn with fresh white sneakers, you’ve got a look that is perfect for watching movies in the park, an outdoor festival, or a day party.

I’ve added these all-white sneakers to my collection (which already included these and these), and I love the subtle perforated detail, plus the fact that the brand is based out of Brooklyn. I hate on Brooklyn because hipsters have taken it over, but I secretly love it. To finish off the look, I wore my fave pair of cat-eye sunglasses and a small crossbody bag.

I know, I haven’t talked about my new haircut and color! That’s going to be Friday’s post, but in the meantime, just know that I’M. ABSOLUTELY. OBSESSED. It’s everything I didn’t even realize I wanted and needed. Plus it’s been super soft due to a product combination I tried out. Stay tuned for more info!

  1. So how are you gonna play us like that? I’m here in a different time zone, trying to think how far behind NY is so I can get the deets on that bomb colour. You look great!

  2. I like the slip dress and t-shirt collection. Yes, it casual, sleek and chic. The tennis shoes top it off. The cat eyewar goes great with that new cut and color.
