Tee Time


In my opinion, a great-fitting tee should be soft, slightly slouchy & with a perfectly worn-in feel.  There are several designer options that fit the bill, but I personally am not willing to pay $80 for a t-shirt.  So when I came across these new styles in bright hues + classic stripes, I quickly snatched them up.  Not only did they meet my criteria for comfort & fit, they also happen to be on sale...so it's the perfect time to stock up for spring & summer!   To prove you can wear them with more than just a pair of jeans or shorts, I decided to show two different looks featuring my new favorite tees.  


What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy tee (on sale here), Gap shirt (here), White House Black Market skirt (similar), Guess heels (on sale here), c/o Jeweliq necklace (here), ALDO clutch (similar), c/o T+J Designs cuff (similar here or here), Nails: Sally Hansen Sunkissed

  

What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy tee (on sale here), LOFT trousers (similar here or here), Forever 21 fedora (similar), New Look clutch (here), c/o Christina M. Boutique necklace, Michael Kors watch (similar), Forever 21 ring (here), Lips: Revlon Moon Drops Hot Coral

Absolutely love the second look! Those red pants are amazing. Such a great pant for elongating your legs.

I'm running a giveaway featuring a hand crafted bracelet from an amazing jewelry designer that creates affordable statement pieces. It starts tomorrow, Thursday.

Wow, I absolutely love both of the looks you are wearing in today's post. First I like how you are wearing the short sleeve shirt over the button down. And the second look also looks great! You look gorgeous!

I have never been a fan of blouses under a T-Shirt or a short-sleeved sweater - but you showed me that it works!!
The soft grey and pink work together perfectly.
Very inspirational, thank you.

i've been wearing a lot of neon + chambray also. love old navy's tees right now, they're all so great!

clpatters said...

Both of these outfits are so perfect for spring, and I'm especially loving the neon tee over the chambray shirt! Such a good idea! I love Old Navy's vintage v-necks, I have five of them... they're sooo comfortable.
The fedora and clutch are great, too. :)

Lauren said...

These are two really great ideas! I need to try layering a tee over chambray!

The pink t-shirt version is my favorite. SO cute!! I'm still so mad that I can't wear those red Loft pants. They are just sitting in my closet 1 size too big but I can't bring myself to get rid of them! Cute looks!
