Spring Favorite (and My Husband’s Favorite, Too): Tee Shirt Dress and Sneakers

I have been seeing a bunch of posts featuring the most adorable tee shirt dresses paired with sneakers. And I find myself repeatedly commenting how this is one of my favorite outfits for spring and summer. Then I realized I never wrote a post showing how wear this combination. So here is my post!

I wore this outfit a few weeks ago to take the kids to a local event called “Touch a Truck.” A small nearby town hosted this fundraiser event where they set up all sorts of vehicles for children to climb through and explore. There were fire trucks, a dump truck, a garbage truck, a paramedic van, a police car, a race car, tractors, a plow, and various other small construction and farm vehicles. It was a free event (or you could donate to the fundraiser) and it was a nice afternoon out with the family. And of course, we made a donation.





Outfit details:
Dress: Target (from last year)
Cardigan: Old Navy Relaxed Hi-Lo Cardigan in Gathering Moss (current online sale price $13.15)
Sneakers: Olive Corduroy Converse from Famous Footwear (very old)
Necklace: Cato Fashions (from last year)

I wore this outfit the other day because my husband asked me to! For some reason that even he cannot explain, he finds a tee shirt dress with sneakers to be super sexy. So who am I to deny him his viewing pleasure? Plus I am super comfortable!






Outfit details:
Dress: Old Navy Rib-Knit Swing Dress in White Stripe (currently on sale online for $11.97)

And in case you wanted to see one more, here is another tee shirt dress and sneaker combination…I wore this for a walk at the zoo.

  9. So cute + casual! I’ve never tried this specific trend, but I’ll wear these dresses with slip-ons. Also, we went to our local Touch a Truck event last year. It was a disaster because my son didn’t understand standing in line.hahaha


    • Thanks, Tif! Slip-ons are a cute alternative, too! Fortunately for us, our touch a truck event was so small, there were no lines! But oh the things we have to teach the little ones! This parenting gig is hard!!!

  12. Love your outfits and doesn’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy to know that your husband likes your outfit.I haven’t worn sneakers with a dress yet but I have worn them with a skirt and I like them as an alternative to sandals, especially if I will be doing a lot of casual walking around. Thanks for adding your post to Up, Down, All-Around and sharing your fabulous look.


    • Rena, sneakers with skirts works just as well! I love sneakers with a cute maxi skirt and tee shirt. Another perfect combo! Thanks so much stopping by and for your kind words!
