casual-tees of war.

i've always had a love-hate relationship with tees. generally, i don't wear them. i feel stuffy and choked up by the material and collar. but every once in a while one comes along that i really like. v-neck. soft-but-not-too-soft material that is loose-fitting, yet holds its shape. long-but-not-too-long length for layering. off-white and not too bright.
i'm liking this sheer coral-ish lipstick by revlon.

(jacket & tee, f21; jeans, express)

  13. Your jeans are just lovely. :)

    I happen to love tees, but only when they are worn correctly, i.e. not in a sloppy way. Too many people abuse tees and ruin it for those who like them.

    I don't have problem with the shirts, they are always so confortable and there is always some accesorie to make the outfit look better :)

  17. I'm exactly the same actually. I find it really difficult to find a tee that looks good on me, and even tank tops I don't feel give much! I've recently resorted to a half way house of the slouch ones in Topshop or the ones with the pretty cut along the top and bottom. This tee is really nice though - suits you!

    Thank you for your comment by the way: I shall follow ya!

  18. lovely pictures my dear....and I feel the same way when it comes to tshirts...I never like wearing them because they are either too plain or just TOO much...I like tshirts w/o too much designs or no graphics at all because I tend to hate whatever is on them later but then I hate tees that are to plain because they become too boring...but I always love their comfort...but anyways great post girl!!!

  40. Yes, tee's can be challanging for us non sporty girls. I also look for similar qualities in tees. I like the tissue thin kinds. Target sometimes bring very cool ones with funky designs that are perfect for layering. F21 once in a while will have some good ones as well.
    That lipstick looks great on you. Those colors totally wash me out but I always envy them.

  42. Again, your legs look a mile long!! DARN YOU AND YOUR SEXINESS. The hair, the blazer... <3

    Ya, tees are really a make-or-break. Some can be soooo wrong that they ruin the whole shape of outfit.
