Tee Time

I have a confession.  When I first acquired this shirt, it went into my "sleeping shirt" drawer, and only made appearances at night. It's oversized, and the cotton is sooo comfy.  After a few washes I decided to see if it could make it as a staple in my daytime wardrobe as well.   Who knew your next great outfit could be inspired by your totally frumpy sleepwear?

There are so many stylish ways to wear comfy cotton tees.  Ditch the denim and leggings and reach for something unexpected- like a pleated midi skirt!  I picked this skirt up a long time ago and struggled to find ways to style it until I just decided to try it one with everything and hope something appealed to me.  It's become a closet MVP (see here and here), and this simple tee is elevated by its unique shape and bold pattern.  I just gathered it all in the back to make it fit a bit more snug, tucked it into my skirt and cinched it with a wide belt. Voila! You've just taken your casual cotton tee to the next level!

Don't you love when something can be equal parts stylish and comfy!?! I love this look A LOT. The tee and the polka dots are a great pair. I'm a suck for a cute t-shirt!
