The Shirtdress Two Ways with Thacker NYC

This past weekend we shot some family photos, and as usual I picked out clothes for the boys to wear. One thing that struck me about fashion for boys and men, is that it is so incredibly simple.  The colors, fits, and washes change but for the most part the pieces stay constant. I thought, if only women could have a similar formula or strategy for wardrobe, life would be a whole lot simpler. Enter: Thacker New York.

Today I’m partnering with Thacker New York to show you two ways to wear one of my favorite closet essentials, the Shirtdress. Thacker New York focuses on creating the essentials that make up the hardest 10% of your closet that you reach for daily, including basics and modern pieces – all with unique and special design touches. As a busy mom, it is so important for me to own clothes that are versatile enough to wear over and over throughout the seasons. They also have an awesome feature on their website, an online style app where there are tons of style ideas there for you to scroll through- you can even create your own outfits and save them to reference later.

The shirtdress is one of my favorite pieces because it can be worn in so many ways. The standard way, buttoned up and belted, is how I wear it typically. Today I wanted to show you a two new ways to wear it to create completely different looks. The first is a casual weekend look, with jeans, a cowl-neck tank, low-heeled boots, and a beanie. It takes your typical jeans and a tee look and makes it a little bit cooler and edgier. The second way is a bit dressier, possibly for a work look, worn over a sweater dress, scarf, and over the knee boots.

Both looks are paired with a my new obsession, the Thacker Le Pouch bag, which is perfectly sized for carrying essentials like keys, wallet, a phone, some makeup, and a charger. I love that one side is suede and the other is leather, so you can wear it two ways, and you don’t have to worry about setting it down on the suede side and possibly getting it dirty.

Which look do you prefer? Let me know!

Thanks for visiting as always xx

  • Peut Etre means ‘perhaps’ in French ~ i love it because it reminds me that anything is possible ❤️ (its also my answer whenever my kids ask me to buy them something 🙃)
  • A statement blazer is never not a good idea 💥 mine is thrifted but just for YOU ALL this time I sourced quite a few designer resale blazers that are equally amahzing and linked them on the ‘shop’ page of the blog - (in a variety of sizes) enjoy!
  • Just hit publish on a new blog post sharing my Living Room makeover! We decided we’re moving right after I started this project, so I didn’t do everything I had planned (saving that for the new place!) but nevertheless, I did zhuzh it up quite a bit! Hope you like ❤️ {Link to post in my profile}
  • Happy Mother’s day from me and baby Soph! I’m going to be so sad to leave her nursery when we move - if you want to see a tour check out the link in my profile or search ‘nursery reveal’ on the blog 💕 (p.s. she looks so teeny without hair doesn’t she?) #mothersday
  • IG vs. Reality - house hunting edition. Was trying to take a pic with Sophia by this adorable entry at a house we toured. I ended up bribing her with my bag 😂Swipe to see what the other 373626 pics look like... I always wear slip on shoes and comfortable clothes for home shopping because it’s stressful enough as it is - fun too though 💕{what I’m wearing or similar on the ‘shop’ page of the blog}
  • Been so busy with house hunting and fasting I forgot to say Ramadan Mubarak to all who celebrate! I’m fasting after two years off (first being pregnant, then nursing) so it was scary at first but I’m pleasantly surprised how easy it has been! Not yelling at my kids has probably been the hardest part tbh 😂 Here’s a pic @annieswift snapped of me while our Uber driver patiently waited and watched from outside lol
  • Going out house hunting today! Are you guys into move-in ready homes, fixer uppers you can renovate to your taste, or brand new construction you help design?? I’m leaning towards the fixer upper myself!
  • New new in thanks to @basimmichelle just in time for Ramadan and Eid! 💕 (how gorgeous is the embroidery on the pants 😍) also going to do some much needed Spring cleaning my closet today ~ wish me luck! What are you all up to this weekend??
  • Wondering how late is *too* late to mail out thank you cards...I’ve had a stack signed and sealed (from multiple birthdays) waiting for stamps for longer than I care to admit 🙈 🙈 thoughts???
