"There's no excuse for dressing like a basic b*tch," Yes. Yes there is. If you're constantly occupied with not so basic things, I say you get a little pass in making minimal effort in how you dress. 

T-shirt dresses have become my saving grace; although to be honest, the ones I've been wearing are  very likely to be actual t-shirts, I'm just too tiny that they end up seeming like a dress on (who needs the stress of bothering with trousers anyway, not I!) T-shirt dresses make the perfect strolling in the city running errands in between a busy day in the office outfit for me. It's casual, yet put together. Breathable, but not overly revealing especially if it's a round neck (and when you're expecting to have a food belly sometime during the day). It's cute, without trying too hard. 

Pulling off a cool casual look with a shirt dress is made simple by slipping into sneakers. Dressing it up only takes a good pair of heeled ankle boots, similar to this look. Layering with a moto leather jacket will add an edge and toughen up the simple look, while a long line jacket will give it a smart, sophisticated touch. I went for lace up flats to give the right feel of chic smart, without a jacket because I took this photoset last month, when the heatwave was on full beam - it's quite a different story we're having now in mid-October Dublin. 

First semester of my final year in university is now in full swing, swamping me with assignments weekly and I'm under even more pressure because the thoughts and reality of missing three weeks of lectures (involuntarily) is quite daunting - I'm going on a holiday in just over a week from today (more about this on my Insta-story soon, make sure you're following me). I'm working in retail every weekend still, and I have just started a very exciting internship with Dublin Fashion which may not be new news to you if you follow me on my socials. I'm microblogging constantly and drafting posts for you guys whenever I can, taking Prosecco breaks every chance I get. Day off? What's that?
