Shoes Speak Louder than Words

I am usually one to wear colour, but I have been venturing into black and white more and more. This t-shirt dress is a classic that I like to pair with some dressy accessories and some casual accessories like my Adidas runners.  I really like how this outfit came together a little outside of my comfort zone.

The black t-shirt dress with white trim can’t be more basic. It is less than $15, too, which makes it even better!  I paired it with Adidas runners…which I coveted for many months before finding in stock and in my size. I heart them!

I use this personalized clutch ALL THE TIME!!  It goes with everything and it is a great conversation starter.  I have never worn a scarf around my neck, but I am sure that I will be doing again because I love how it looked, especially with this outfit.

  • This is such a cool outfit. I love the dress and the personalized clutch is super cute. Those shoes are perfect!

  • Pam

    I love that outfit. What a fun way to dress down an outfit that would otherwise maybe be too fancy for a day running errands. I’ve never thought of wearing sneakers with a dress before.

  • Such a great look. Love the mix of chic and casual.

  • I agree that you should wear more scarves. You pull it off so well! I especially like how you paired this one with the dress.

    That outfit is very pretty and it suits you a lot. I like the way you have paired white sneakers with it. In my country we would have paired white / black high heels or sandals. It’s quite interesting to see how people experiment with the accessories. 🙂

  • Love, love, love this casual look! I’ve been eyeing those throw back sneaks! Xoxo Mindy
