THE T-Shirt Dress, Sizing and Summer Style Link Up

 Welcome to the Summer Style Link-Up you fine Fashionistas! So this T-Shirt dress from the Gap is one of my favorite summer finds! It's soft, has a great fit and so comfy!! 

So when I saw how much it was on clearance for, I thought, yeah I'll get another color, maybe in a solid to buzz around in and be a go to dress. So I ordered the exact same size in a solid navy but when I put it on, I was like "what?" My butt looked like Kim Kardashians in yoga pants and not in a good way! So I'm thinking, why is sizing so off these days? It seems worse than ever and I'm wondering if the team sewing today's garments are eating too many drunken noodles? 

 My size rage is the widest it's ever been and at times makes everything seem extra wide, lol. Do others have this problem too? Like when you get two of the exact garments in the same size but the fit is completely different? 

Anywhoo, the solid dress is going back but this stripped one will be a fun go to for awhile!! I like throwing a long white cardigan over it too and doing flats like I did here or a cute espadrille. This tassel necklace is the best thing I've gotten from Walmart in awhile ($5) and I loved how it matched the floral flats in coral that I got there last year.

  2. Such a cute dress! And what a fabulous necklace! Indeed a great find & deal!

    And, yes, sizing is often all off. I've ordered the same item in different colors and there was a HUGE difference in size. That's why I'm always hesitant to order things online... I also always try to remember to take two items in the "same" size in the dressing room to see which one fits better. There is almost always a difference...

  3. I so know what you mean about sizing even at the same store, which drives me insane! I have a pair of pants from ann taylor - I bought one size then the other in the same and it was great then a third in a different color and poof it fit so weird LOL! I low how simple this dress is and you totally accessorize it perfectly! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. Sizing gets me every time...especially when it comes to shoes! Seriously drives me nuts, that's why I prefer to shop in store so I can try the things on. I HATE having to return things that are ordered online.
    You look so pretty and SO comfortable, while still looking so stylish! Love the fun pop of colors from your necklace and shoes! Hope you have a great day, beautiful lady!

  7. You are so cute!!! I love the dress - yes, I have sizing issues all the time. It makes me nervous to order anything online and I make sure I try on even the most basic pieces when I'm in-store. Grrr.....

  8. Your best accessory these days is that amazing tan you are sporting! All the colors are just popping. Such a perfect summer dress darling!

  9. Yes, girl. I can buy two of anything and one will be made differently - especially from Gap and Banana. You're gorgeous and look at that tan! I'm like fifty shades lighter than you and I'm like, oohh yeah look at my tan LOL! Fair skin girl probs! xoxoxox

  12. Sizing is complete insanity! I wish they would standardize sizes in some way. Someone in the industry told me once that if a factory is filling a order and they don't have enough of one size, they just slap another size label on it! Geez ....
    Anyway, the most important thing is that you look totally adorable as always! So chic and casual and ready for summer fun!

  15. I HATE when you own two of the exact same thing, but they fit completely different! It's like the company just decided to use completely different patterns or something. That tshirt dress is so cute though, and I love how you paired it with those flats! It just looks so comfy for the summer!

  16. I can't stand when the sizing is off like that...seriously makes me wonder what these workers are up to...hahaha! I do love t-shirt dresses though, and the Gap makes some of the best...I actually just wore one yesterday! Love the necklace with it..you look so beautiful!

  18. I so agree with that quote about size, Sister! I mean, really! I put on a pair of pants this morning for work and they were a little snug. Totally out of my walking routine, but I'm hoping to get back into it this fall when it cools down some. Happy Wednesday!

  20. Yes, I definitely think sizing has changed in recent years. It's crazy how it differs from brand to brand too. You look gorgeous though and I love that necklace you found at Wal-mart! :)

  21. I can totally relate to the sizing problem -- but Andrea: You are SO gorgeous in this dress + I love the tassel necklace! You're a vision -- this summer look is probably my fave!
    I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!

  22. Oh my gosh, the Kim K comment, Andrea!! Totally agree about the size range, it's really hard to just order something online and know that it will fit anymore. But, I love this t-shirt dress and on clearance, what a find! It looks so perfect with the tassel necklace and these fun sandals. You look gorgeous as always, Andrea!

  23. You look beautiful in this color! Actually, you look beautiful in every color :)! I completely agree about the sizing - it's gotten hard to order on line from some retailers because their sizing is so off. Hope you're having a wonderful week!

  24. I love T-shirt dresses and usually have to size up because of the "butt" problem :) I know what you mean about sizes not being consistent. I have bought 2 of the same pants before in different colors, and they fit differently. Who knows whats going on?!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This dress is adorable on you and what a score on that necklace!!! I love Walmarts $5 necklaces and I have a few too and people always comment on how gorgeous they are and cant believe their ears when they hear where I got them and how much I spent.

    I can literally take back 10 of the same thing and they all fit different on me. I cant explain it. It is why I refuse to buy clothes online and I have to try EVERYTHING on before I purchase. I hate that!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Looks wonderful on you! T-shirt dresses are so easy to wear and so comfy. I love it with your hair up like that!!! You look like the epitome of summer.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That is my kind of summertime outfit! I love dresses because I just have to think about ONE garment. I love simplicity. Your necklace and sandals are adorable, too.
    I have two pair of the same exact shoes from Target; one pair of nude flats, and one pair of leopard flats, in the same size. The nude flats are too tight, and the leopard flats are too big. Go figure! I love them, so I wear them anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I hate that! I've had a few shirts that were that way. I really like one, so I decided to order it in different colors or patters (because if you find something that works, you better run with it!) It seems like it should be a no-brainer, so it is annoying when they don't fit the same. Maybe we just need to partake in the drunken noodles before we try them on?!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love it! I know the sizing thing is so weird! Like why is it so off?! Glad that that one fit you though! You are too cute, and a $5 necklace, score!

  30. Shirt dresses are perfect for summer! This one on you is amazing - gorgeous with the tassel necklace too!

  32. I hate it when two of the same outfit are different sizes!! It drives me crazy!
    You look gorgeous in this striped t-shirt dress - I've never actually been into t-shirt dresses. I don't know why. Maybe I should try one and see for myself!

  41. oh this dress is so cute! but seriously yes, what is up with sizing being all over the place? i understand different stores or brands, but like you i've bought the exact same garment in a different colour and it's been a completely different size! what the heck. i reckon someone is having fun switching size labels or something!

    ReplyDelete
  42. My sizing has been all over the place too! I'm glad I'm not alone, I was seriously trying to figure out if I was fluctuating ten pounds from day to day, lol. I just think you look so cute and are the perfect summer picture!

  45. Sizing is SO weird. I am anywhere from an XS to an M!! You look super cute though.

  46. I can't believe that necklace was only $5 from Walmart! What a great find!

    Sizing is so weird! Especially from brand to brand. Oh my goodness, it's just crazy! Depending on the brand I am up or down SEVERAL sizes. Crazy crazy.

  51. Such a pretty outfit for these warm days and the dress looks so comfortable. That material is the best. You always know how to turn an outfit from fun to fabulous!

  52. There is NO WAY your behind could ever be the size of KK's and in my opinion, there is nothing good about her fanny. It would take two of you to make just one of her butt cheeks alone. No bueno in my book. You, on the other hand, look fabulous. This dress is perfect for running around and will transition into early fall with a denim jacket or cardi. Love the tassel, too. The seamstress for the solid navy was definitely drinking the Koolaid.

  53. This outfit is the perfect summer outfit. Bummer about the solid dress! I have been lucky and have not had that happen when I buy multiples.
