dressed in summer with stylemint {day 1}



Dress: Pico dress c/o StyleMint; Jacket: Old Navy (love this darker version); Hat: H&M (similar style here); Bathing suit: Old Navy; Sunglasses: Versace; Necklace: flea market find


Having thoroughly enjoyed the unseasonably warm weather we've been experiencing here in SF, I knew I wanted to spend a majority of this past weekend over in the man friend's neighborhood (to take full advantage of the 5 minute walk to the beach). That said, weekend packing isn't exactly my forte (let's just say I almost always bring too much with me) so I wanted to make sure to pare down to just a few basics -- hence a lot of T Shirts.

Of course, it's easy to underestimate a good T, which is why I'm so excited to be sharing some of my favorite StyleMint pieces over the next few days to help dispel that notion. The fit and the fabric quality of these Ts never disappoint and the fact every piece is designed by Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen certainly doesn't hurt either. But I digress.

The first look in our beach-bound lineup? A breezy little T Shirt dress, perfect as my bathing suit coverup for the afternoon! I went with some of my summer go-tos to accessorize this look (hello denim jacket and straw panama hat!) but I'd love to know how you would style this number! Let me know in the comments below.

  30. I ordered this dress and am on the fence, only because it is so thin (you can see the outline of your legs in the light). I love the style though. Are you wearing a slip with it or something?
