I feel like the theme of this week could be “striped tees and what you can do with them” but after much thought (about a whole 20 seconds) I realized that those words just do not quite have a ring to them. But in all seriousness: here is my striped tee and this is what I did with it.
Too many times I reserve my tees for my casual outfits on my off days or weekends (AKA the outfits you never see). But really, I’m not giving my tees enough credit. Sure they can easily be casual, that’s obvious. But I got to thinking about how easy it is to dress up a tee and also the easiest way to make an office outfit more comfortable. It’s as easy as one, two, tee. (See what I did there? It at least deserves a pity laugh.)
I picked this gem up from Old Navy the other day using the justification of “but I don’t have an orange and a blue striped tee…” And since I was alone, my justification worked. Within minutes of getting home I realized how many outfits I could make with just this tee. I decided to try out the classic pencil skirt + heels combo for a weekday look. For a weekend look, I went much more casual because well, weekend. You never have to explain a baseball cap and cut-off shorts when it’s the weekend.
