How to style a T-shirt dress 3 ways

T-shirts are a wardrobe staple, but you can step up your fashion game by having a basic T-shirt dress in your closet lineup. Don’t be intimated by the word dress. A T-shirt dress is just as versatile as a regular tee. To prove it, we pulled together three different outfits that feature a T-shirt dress as the cornerstone of each look.

For all of our looks, we used this amazing thrift-store find — a new-with-tags T-shirt dress from J. Jill featuring simple black and white stripes. This dress is made of 100% cotton, making it a great material to wear multiple ways. Always consider the fabric composition of a dress before purchasing if you’re looking to wear it as a wardrobe staple. This will help you find something secondhand that is versatile and easy to take care of.

Outfit 1: Casual

A T-shirt dress can be perfectly styled casually. While there is nothing wrong with wearing a T-shirt dress on its own, there are ways you can up your style cred by adding a few more pieces to complete your look. For this T-shirt dress outfit, we added a utility vest from Decree that has some fun detailing on the shoulders for more visual interest. This eliminates the need to add a necklace or statement earrings. We completed the look with some trendy sandals and a suede crossbody purse. This look would be perfect for a casual night out with friends or strolling the farmer’s market.

Outfit 2: Sporty

When you think of wearing a dress, you automatically think of wearing it for a dressier occasion, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. This look is perfect for wearing to a baseball game or running errands on the weekend. This look is surprisingly easy to put together, and it’s actually the accessories that complete the outfit. Pair your T-shirt dress with a baseball hat, backpack purse and some sneakers. Boom! Done and out the door!

Outfit 3: Dressy

Just because a dress can be worn casually does not mean you can’t dress it up either. To up the fancy factor, we paired our T-shirt dress with a bright green blazer from Express. We love how bold the green color is when coupled with the simple black and white stripes on the dress. For accessories, we would complete the outfit with a statement necklace and pointy toe pumps to elongate the legs. See? This look proves that you can have the best of both worlds!

3 ways to update thrifted baskets

Quick quiz. What screams summer, makes organizing a cinch in any place at all (even on the go!) and is waiting for you at your local Goodwill? Thrifted baskets!

From burly laundry baskets to breezy woven seagrass, these permanently picnic-ready decor pieces will feel right at home in every room of your home and even out on adventures! We are highlighting three quick and easy ways you can customize thrifted baskets for looks and functionality.

To add trendy tassels you’ll need: a basket, yarn, a small book or something else that makes just the right size tassels and a tapestry needle (optional — can be helpful if the basket’s weave is tight).

Step 1: Wrap the yarn around the book (or whatever you found) until it looks thick enough. I went around 18 times. Slide the loops off the book and cut along one end.

 

Step 2: With the yarn still folded in half, place a new length of yarn through the center of it. Then, lay that on top of another horizontal string. Double knot the horizontal piece of yarn around the tassel. You can wrap this around as many times as you want before tucking the ends inside the tassel if you want to.

Step 3: Repeat steps one and two until you have enough tassels.

Step 4: With the knots you just made placed against the basket, thread the top strings of the tassels through the basket and double knot them in place around the weave. If your basket’s weave is too tight for you to do this with just your fingers, use a tapestry needle to get through the narrow nooks. Do this, evenly spaced, all the way across the top of the basket.

Next up, I loved the unique shape of this square basket that I spotted while out thrifting, but I knew that adding some handles would make it easier to carry while full. While I was at it, I figured I’d just slap on a chalkboard label, too, so I could stick it up high on a shelf if I wanted to and I’d still know what was inside.

To add handles and a label you’ll need:

  • A basket
  • Faux-leather belt
  • Tough string
  • Tapestry needle
  • Paint mixing stick (or similarly thin wood)
  • Saw to cut the paint mixing stick
  • Power drill with a small bit (I used 1/8” bit)
  • Small paint brush
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Hammer
  • Nail
  • Scrap wood
  • Chalk marker
  • Sandpaper

Step 1: Cut your thin wood to the right size for your label. I used a saw to slice a 3.25-inch long section of the paint mixing stick. After that, drill two small holes toward either end of the label. Sand all sides well then wipe off the dust. Paint with chalkboard paint according to the container’s instructions and let dry.

Step 2: Measure two lengths of the belt to make the handles. Mine are each 6 inches long. Use the actual holes in the belt or add your own holes by hammering them in with scrap wood behind the belt.

Step 3: Thread a length of string through the needle, position the handles and label (after it’s completely dry) wherever you’d like them, and thread them through the basket’s weave to the be secured with a knot on the inside. Try to stitch the needle between the weave of the basket if possible so you aren’t poking holes into the straw/wood itself.

This last one is easy as pie and just as charming. I found this basket a couple of months ago and I love its size and shape so much. However, I noticed that since I keep it in a little nook in my bedroom, it tends to look pretty dark and shadowy over there. I was looking for a way to brighten this piece up and a fresh strip of white paint definitely helped!

To get that paint-dipped look you’ll need:

  • A basket
  • Paint (I used spray paint, but you don’t have to)
  • Paint brush if necessary
  • Painter’s tape
  • Newspaper

Step 1: Tape off the section you want to paint making sure to cover everything you don’t want to be painted. Remember that paint (especially spray paint) can seep through the basket’s weave so you may want to fill the basket with paper on the inside, too. Press the tape firmly into place so nothing can sneak through!

Step 2: In a well-ventilated area, paint the bottom with spray paint or by hand with a brush. Make sure you follow the directions on your paint to make sure you’re doing it safely.

Each of these is just a quick afternoon project that adds personality to one of the most versatile items on Goodwill shelves. Pile ’em high with picnic supplies, replace your beach bag with something boho or get a grip on your indoor organization. You could even use your thrifted basket to tote donations in on your next thrift store trip. Goodwill is where your stuff goes to work and any baskets you buy there are sure to carry more than their fair share of the workload. Have fun making them your own!

DIY succulent planter project

Succulents are all the rage. If you haven’t jumped aboard the popular plant bandwagon, we’ve got some adorable do-it-yourself reasons that will convince you that you should.

We’ve put together these budget-friendly air plant and succulent planters that feature secondhand vases, glassware and teacups we picked up at our local Goodwill for under $3.99.

This is the perfect make-it-yourself project for people who don’t have a green thumb. Succulents are drought-tolerant and easy to care for. Plus, if you really want to take the simple route, use artificial succulents instead.

Supplies:

Succulents — real or artificial — and air plants

Moss, glass gems for vases, dirt or other filler

Glassware and vases

Directions:

Step one: Gather the succulents you’ve gotten from your favorite local garden shop.

Step two: Gather the glassware, vases, vessels, teacups and other containers you’ve purchased from your local Goodwill.

Step three: Gather the fillers such as moss, glass gems, stones or sand.

Step four: Start assembling your containers. Put the filler of choice into a container and add succulent. Repeat until you have all your containers filled. In some cases it might be easier to add the succulent or plant first and then add the filler, depending on how big the plant or roots are.

Step five: Arrange on a bookshelf, mantle, table or windowsill or give away to a few lucky family and friends.

Fashionista: Star-spangled Fourth of July outfit

Summer is here, and one of the season’s highlights is the Fourth of July, which usually means gatherings and festivities with friends and family.

Before you purchase your sparklers, head over to your local Goodwill to find a cute outfit not only for the 4th of July but pieces that are versatile enough to wear for the rest of summer.

Find stars and stripes shirts and tees and camis in solid red, white and blue. Goodwill makes it easy to find the colors you want because the store is merchandised by color and size. Brilliant!

Pair your favorite thrift-store top with denim shorts. There’s no end to the choices — distressed, dark, boyfriend, cuffed. Goodwill has them all. There’s even a section of the store dedicated to shorts.

On a recent trip, I found a cute alternative to denim shorts. This lightweight denim shift dress is just my thing. If you know me, you know I love my shift dresses. Not only are they comfortable but they are so easy to accessorize. One and done!

After choosing my denim dress I simply picked up a scarf with tones of red, white and blue from the accessory department. Wear it for the Fourth or style it on any summer day tied on a purse, as a hairband or even as a belt.

I also found a navy crossbody bag in the accessory department. Crossbodies are perfect for summer because they are small enough to carry all your essentials. Plus, they are practical to wear not only for comfort but also so you don’t leave it behind, which I have done! There is nothing scarier than losing a purse. If you see a cute crossbody bag at GW, buy it!

Here’s your look for the Fourth! Pack the cooler and grab some snacks and the bug spray and cue the fireworks!

Cost breakdown: Old Navy denim shift dress, $8.99; red, white and blue scarf, $3.99; and navy Stone Mountain crossbody purse, $6.99. The Keds are from my closet.

Celebrate Independence Day with these Goodwill DIYs

When I think of the 4th of July, I envision our glorious flag and what it represents, booming fireworks and a laidback happy vibe. No matter where you are celebrating or how many people are involved, those are the top three things, I think, on everyone’s Independence Day celebration checklist. We don’t want you to miss out on the fun, so here are a few DIY ideas and tips to help you capture the atmosphere of the holiday without missing out on the good parts.

Let’s start off with one décor tip that will go a long way: Making your food pull double duty! Every event needs food. Whether you’re hosting a huge gathering or just preparing enough for your family, it’s easy to color code your foods to fit the theme. Arrange a red, white and blue dessert in a clear glass bowl (browse a wide variety of shapes and sizes at Goodwill for a great price) and use it as a centerpiece.

I love this idea from Country Living to organize silverware into mason jars with red, white, and blue bandanas. Every piece of this easy-to-assemble display can be thrifted and the best part is that you’ll be able to use them all after the event, too. There’s a secret satisfaction I get when I can assimilate seasonal décor into off-season functionality.

Since your very festive table is now set, and we’ve decided that our décor this year must be functional, let’s talk about attire! Having the clothing you wear contribute to the color scheme is a simple yet effective way to create a cohesive look without having to put a lot of time into party prep. Start by looking through your closet to see what you already have and head to Goodwill to round it out to make sure you are representing with red, white and blue.

While I enjoy celebrating our nation’s independence, I also want to mention my year-round independence inspiration: Goodwill. You may be a fan of thrift shopping because it’s less expensive and better for the environment, but did you know that when you shop at and donate to Goodwill you are supporting job training and other opportunities for people in your community? I can’t think of a better way to honor our nation’s birthday than to assist my neighbors in their efforts toward achieving the American Dream.

How to wear jeans in summer

Jeans are a staple in every woman’s closet. They pair with nearly everything and are the starting point for both casual and dressy outfits. In the summer, though, jeans are probably the last thing you feel like wearing. There are a few tricks to try with denim during the summer that will make it bearable when the temperatures and humidity soar. Consider these tips when trying to figure out how to wear jeans in the summer without melting and take a look at the amazing secondhand jean styles we found at Goodwill.

Shorten it up

Cropped or jeans that hit at the ankle are perfect options for the dog days of summer, and they are super trendy right now. Although this pair from the Gap are black, they are both loose and cropped, which make them perfect for hotter summer days when paired with a fun tank or blouse.

Ventilate

Funny, yes, but we’re not joking! Distressed jeans are hot, hot, hot right now, and this style offers a great solution to sweaty legs because the holes provide air flow. Of course, deconstructed or distressed jeans are not appropriate to wear for all occasions or even most workplaces, so keep that in mind. This pair of distressed jeans from a.n.a would be really cute cuffed and coupled with a pair of printed flats.

Loosen up

Do yourself a favor when the heat and humidity soar and do not shimmy into your skinny jeans. Instead, opt for a pair of stylish straight-leg or wide-leg jeans. We like this pair of Hudson jeans because they are straight-leg and cut to fit looser. They also have a great cuff detail around the ankle, making them perfect for summer days when you can’t wear shorts.

Lighten up

An 85-degree day and heavy denim do not mix well, unless sweaty and melting chic is the look you’re going for. Instead, focus on finding jeans made of a lightweight fabric. Confused on what that means? Think of the material in your favorite chambray shirt, like this pair of cotton jeans from Liz Claiborne. When considering how to wear jeans in the summer without looking overdressed, lightweight jeans are a great option.

Color swap

Dark blue jeans long have been the go-to for work appropriate denim wear, but dark colors seem so wrong during easy, breezy summer. They actually LOOK heavy and hot. Try introducing some color into your jeans by swapping the dark for colors like blush, white or light green. We have all the heart eyes for this ultra-trendy pair of white, wide-leg jeans from Gap. Pair them up with a tucked-in tank and camel-colored, slip-on sandals and you’ll for sure be turning heads!

Shelley the Goodwill thrifter’s lamp find

Friends ask me frequently about my thrift-store shopping adventures. I love to thrift, bargain shop and go to yard sales, and it’s well-known in my social circle.

I always get excited over a great deal and the thrill of the hunt! I typically look for items that can be used in my home, are inexpensive or provide a fun project re-do.

On a recent trip to my local Goodwill, I found this beautiful lamp. I had found it online from a national retailer selling for $100. I paid $9.99 for it.

As I was carrying it to the front to check out, two customers stopped and said how beautiful it was and that it was a great find. Score!

This lamp is modern and industrial looking and fits so well with my decor. It’s a heavy metal base with a glass shade for a true industrial look that coordinates perfectly with my furniture. I put it in my living room and got a vintage Edison bulb for an even trendier finish.

Now to sit under it with a good book.

What to wear to a summer wedding: dos and don’ts

We love ourselves a wedding. The romance, the food, the dancing, the cake and the excuse to dress up. But with so many dress options available, where does a girl even start? When considering what to wear to a summer wedding, there are a few guidelines to keep in mind.

We figured we’d start with what not to wear to a summer wedding.

Do NOT wear white. Don’t do it. This is not just an old and dated rule to follow. There are literally thousands upon thousands of other dress options available to choose from. The wedding is not about you and what you are wearing. There is no excuse to wear white on a bride’s big day.

While we are at it, if you know or have an idea what color the wedding party is wearing, avoid that as well. Again, it’s not about you.

Sure, weddings are a great time to dress up and flaunt you best asset, but we recommend just choosing one asset and being respectful about it. This is not the time to wear your best going-out dress so keep your cut outs, short hemlines and deep V-necks at home, friends!

Summer wedding dos

So now that we have that out of the way, let’s focus on finding the perfect dress for a summer wedding. Unless a dress code is mentioned on the wedding invite, you can probably safely assume that most weddings are middle ground on the formality scale. Of course, you always will want to dress up, but long gowns most likely won’t be necessary.

Wedding guests should consider the time of day the wedding is when deciding what to wear to a summer wedding. If the wedding is in the morning or early afternoon, you can assume it is more on the casual side. If it is around dinner or later, it’s going to be more formal. You also will want to consider the location when deciding what to wear to a summer wedding. Is the wedding at a barn, country club, garden, beach, church or backyard? The location will certainly steer you toward different looks.

When you step back and consider all the different factors that play into what to wear to a summer wedding, it can be a little overwhelming. We’ve pulled a few of our favorite dresses to give you some ideas of what type of summer wedding they would work well for.

Casual

This dress from Liz Claiborne would be a great option for a morning ceremony or a ceremony at a park or garden. We like the lighter, more feminine colors and subtle print, which are perfect for summer. For a garden wedding, add a little more dressiness to your look with a light-colored clutch, strappy heels and dainty, understated jewelry.

If you are on the beach, try something that is flowy and made of a lighter fabric, such as this Gap dress. Pair it with flat sandals (no one wants heels in the sand!) and natural hair. Don’t forget sunglasses and sunscreen!

Middle ground

Most weddings fall into this category. If you have any doubts on what to wear, choose something with these guidelines in mind. This royal blue dress from Mitto has great detailing in the scalloped hemline. We’d pair it with a statement necklace and a fun handbag in a bold print.

Another option is this gorgeous dress from Banana Republic. The lavender color is perfect for summer, and the perforated fabric adds a touch of trendy. Neutral-colored peep-toe heels and pendant earrings would complete this look.

Wear heels (open toed or strappy are more appropriate for summer weather), a clutch (leave the mom bag at home) and dressier, bolder jewelry. You may even consider pulling your hair into a pretty, low bun or curling it.

Semi-formal and above

If you know you must step up your fanciness, find yourself a black dress and you’ll be set. This black cocktail dress from Jessica Howard hits roughly around the knee and is the perfect option for any wedding dress code asking for cocktail or semi-formal attire. It’s commonly advised that, when in doubt, it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed.

If a floor-length gown is required because the invite asked for a black or white tie dress code, find a sweeping chiffon gown like this red beauty from Bill Levkoff. The sweetheart neckline is flattering on anyone, and the wide but trendy straps help you avoid the dreaded constant strapless adjustments. Remember to complete your formal looks with sparkling accessories and hair and makeup.

Fashionista: Thrift shopping all about individualized style

Do you remember the Goodwill commercial that featured a man with a purple paisley shirt in his closet?

Well, he donated the purple paisley shirt to Goodwill and, voila, a Goodwill shopper was thrilled with that find and said, “Yes! A purple paisley shirt!”

That was my thought on this bright pink and green shirt with monkeys on it. It looked like a Lily Pulitzer shirt to me! Now, I know there are GW shoppers who would take one look and say, “Ew, I would never wear that!”

But that’s what Goodwill is all about — finding pieces that YOU love, clothing that makes YOU happy and that’s unique to your own personal style.

Here are my favorite clothing finds: bright green and pink zipped shirt, $4.99; white Old Navy shorts, $1.99 on clearance; Lina purse, $5.99; and Montego Bay Club sandals, $4.99.

So, GW shoppers, create your own BeYOUtiful look!
