Halftee.

Red Polka Dot Dress: Modcloth.

Why hello everyone!
I've always hated wearing camisoles and t-shirts underneath my dresses. Back in the early 2000's when layering camisoles under your t-shirt was the 'big thing' I always felt so silly and uncomfortable. I was constantly pulling down and readjusting my camis and even when they were adjusted, I had all sorts of weird lumps and bumps. Boy oh boy the the pre-teen in me wish I would have discovered Halftees back then!

I was so intrigued when the wonderful guys and gals at Halftee contacted me asking if I would like to try out one of their products. I had never seen anything like it before or even heard of the concept. Halftees are literally what the name says; half a tee. A comfortable band right under your bust keeps the t-shirt from bunching up underneath your clothing and helps the undershirt stay in place. Such a mind blowing concept for me! They have halftees in all sorts of styles- sleeveless, short sleeve, 3/4 length, and even full length, as well as, having various colors to pick from ,too.

This little lace halftee I'm wearing in the perfect, no hassle ditty to slip underneath all of the summer, sleeveless dresses I always wear. After all, I do have to pay attention to the dress code for another two months, hehe. The only problem I had with my halftee was the sleeves were quite a bit long and I had to roll them up. Perhaps that's just my shorty arms though!

Today was my last day of school and I'm now officially on spring break! Hooray; too excited for words! I'm not doing anything special, but I do plan on doing a lot of blogging, reading the Hunger Games (I saved them for when I would have time!), and also watching all sorts of movies I've been wanting to see. Blue Valentine and The Notebook (yet again)? Mmm, I have no problem with a Ryan Gosling Fest

With much love, Lauren.

I love your bold vintagey hairstyle. I definitely wish I had had anywhere near as much moxie to be brave and stylish like you are when I was in high school. This halftee thing is intriguing, but with super short arms I'd probably have the same problem. Enjoy the break immensely, and say hi to Ryan for me. Mmmmm Ryan Gosling.

I love your outfit and your scarf worn as a headband! The idea of 'halftees' is so smart. I'm incredibly jealous that you're just now starting your spring break seeing as I am at the very end of mine, two weeks is waaay to short!

Perfectly exquisite, Lauren. Red looks wonderful on you.

This is wonderful! I really love how the lace top looks underneath your red dress. Your hairdo is super cute too. I've been wanting to try a headscarf and this is exactly the way I would do it!

how on earth do you get your hair in such a perfectly contrived bun? it's just lovely!

bomb girls is a CBC television show. I think there is 6 episodes. you can watch it online at cbc.ca..maybe you won't get it in the states? it's all about the women filling in for the men folk when they went off to war. the 1940's fashion is too die for!

talk soon wild child

I love the layering you've done! Red and cream is one of my favorite color combinations so naturally I feel drawn to this outfit. The concept of Halftee is really cool, I hate wearing any kind of layers typically as well, but that seems pretty convenient. Great look as always and your weekend plans sound awesome!

I seriously have considered buying that dress, but I was too scared to try it out because of the top!

I am so with you on the camis under dress and such, it can really be a pain and it can look wrong so easily! I found something similar to these a while back, they're just bands you can wear under dresses and tops that are low cut and you dont have all that weird bunching. (And now Ill have to check out these halftees, they sound perfect!) Love this cut little look, the top of your dress is so interesting and yay, RED polka dots! (I just finished the Hunger Game books, they were good and now I can't wait to see the movie! Enjoy your spring beak.)
