Refuel: A Food Binge Essential

A t-shirt dress is the perfect clothing piece for food adventures especially if you’re planning to eat a lot of food. This type of dress flows away from the body hiding a potential food baby. The t-shirt dress is also a great dress once the food coma hits. Unlike a pair of jeans, this dress does not restrict or cling to the body whatsoever.

T-shirt dresses are exactly what you think they are: oversized tees. But thanks to stores like Topshop, Urban Outfitters, H&M and much more, these “oversized tees” are more refined than throwing on a men’s XL shirt.

T-shirt dresses are made out of soft and breathable fabric like cotton or jersey. These types of dresses can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. But rest assured, they are unbelievably comfy.

With the day off from school, I decided to sport my new t-shirt dress on a food adventure with friends to the Anaheim Packing District. For those of you who have not yet been to the Anaheim Packing District in Anaheim, let me tell you, it is freaking amazing (especially for foodies!). The Packing District is one huge warehouse (two stories high) filled with different food stalls. It has a plethora of cuisine ranging from fancy grilled cheese to Canadian poutine and everything in between. Besides the yummy food, the Packing District is visually beautiful, decorated with a modern yet rustic touch.

It was so hard not to go around every food stall and buy at least one item to taste (it is a bit pricey). After taking multiple walks up and down the Packing District, I finally decided to try the Tonkotsu ramen from Orange TEI. I’ve had ramen multiple times before and this bowl would definitely make it on my top five. The broth was rich, the noodles were firm, and the pork was tender.

For my outfit I wore my striped t-shirt dress from Cotton On that I bought on sale for $5 dollars. What I really love about this particular t-shirt dress is the slightly hemmed sleeves that enhance the silhouette. The striped print and color of this dress also made it a must-have for me. Since I wanted to add a little more structure to my outfit, I decided to throw on my thrifted distressed denim jacket. I also added my cutout boots from Topshop to balance out the casual aspects of the look.
