Outfit of the Day : Cotton T-shirt Dress


Oh yes, feeling a little goofy after all the moving that Derek and I accomplished today. Even though we're only moving across the courtyard from our current place, it's a lot of work and I'll do a jig once we're all done. I hate moving, but bigger kitchen and Tiki room (aka dining room) makes it all worth it.



I took a shower and slipped into one of my favorite types of outfit, a dress, pair of leggings with a pair of boots. I'm calling the dress a 'cotton t-shirt dress' as it's just as comfortable as wearing a t-shirt, it's from H&M's Divided Basic line and I think the price is around $12.95. I love this dress so much that I went out and bought another one, because I can't have just one of these comfy beauties! Speaking of buying things, I'm on a 'no buy' quest this month, it's voluntary task that I bestowed on myself in order to keep better track of my spending. I have been stressed out with all the changes going on (nothing bad!) that I have a tendency to indulge in retail therapy and well, I wanted to nip it in the bud. Shopping is not a cure for stress, so I'm taking my own advice about spending/budgeting. My no buy August is only limited to things that are extras, so items for the move, household items, toiletries, food, gas, etc. are A-OK! Derek says "You don't have to do this", but it's actually grounding me a bit and I've become a lot more focused. Yeah, I'm weird.

Have you ever had a 'no buy' month?

Thank you for reading!

  2. We just moved, too. Down one floor and around the corner! It wouldn't have been half as bad if we didn't own an arcade game.

    We've had a lot of vet bills recently, so I'm supposed to be not buying anything. But like you, we found we needed a ton of stuff for the new place...so much for that.

  4. Beware of vanishing boxes during the move. After my moves it has always been one box missing, and a box that one miss for real :/. I love your comfy outfits, so inspiring as I like to dress comfortably myself.
    Are you moving to a larger appartment?

    1. The poster, thank you! It was a gift from a high school friend many many moons ago. Hard to believe I've had it hanging from in bedroom at my parents to all the apartments I've lived in :)
