Florida summer: nothing is very comfortable at a certain point! But I do like wearing lightweight dresses and skirts for air circulation. I don’t wear shorts much, unless it’s for outdoor chores. I rely on a handful of comfortable cotton tees, and replace most of them every summer (they get washed and dried a lot).
Of course, there are the standard black, navy and white tees. These come mainly from GAP and Old Navy. Gap’s “Body” line is really soft and holds its shape well.
|GAP Body tees are among my favorites. Under $17.|
Sometimes I like a slightly dressier tee, for lunch with friends. This one from Liz Claiborne would be versatile:
I like a couple of print tees too, to break the rhythm. This one would be great with slim white jeans or a white skirt. Also by Liz Claiborne and on sale for $13:
And I like a shot of whimsy for those hanging-around-at-the-bookstore days. I know the “rule” about No Graphic Tees after 50. Phooey on that. Love the print on this Dorothy Perkins tee, $17.
Enjoy your Saturday and stay fabulous,
Visible Monday is on its “off” week this week, so we can recharge, refresh, and howl at the moon ☺ We’ll be back on Monday, May 5th (actually, the Sunday evening
Couldn't agree more with you on this Tee-time of year. I also replace the basic white and black every year and add a few fun graphics as well. I'm really liking the oversize tee's this season and the way they look with skinny jeans and skirts. By the way, anthropologie is having a great sale on some of their fun graphic tee's.
T-shirts are the absolute best!!!!!
The graphic one is my favorite and I'm over 50 so go figure. I guess rules are made to be broken! Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com
I love graphic tees too, so I'm glad we think like!
I love the Dorothy Perkins one and the floral one. I'm a bit obsessed with floral t shirts at the moment – I'm having to prevent myself from buying more as two are really enough for my wardrobe. I love them 'cos I can wear them to work (they're either completely or partly made of polyester so come off a bit more formal like a t-shirt shaped blouse)
It's useful to have a few cotton short-sleeved tops of some description, so t-shirts are an obvious answer, but they just don't excite me at all, I'm afraid! Mine are all bought secondhand, I couldn't imagine spending much on a t-shirt! I didn't realise Dorothy Perkins clothing is available in the States, the shop has been a staple of the British high street for many, many years. xxx
I've never heard of Dorothy Perkins but that t with the birds is beyond cute. I don't hold with no graphics after 50 but I stay away from any t shirt with words, unless it's for my beloved KU Jayhawks!
I love that floral one. I usually buy tees at Target or JCP – I can always find 100% cotton. But I also like to have some loose woven shirts so I don't have to wear a bra!
What was that about the rules? The only rule is… I like it! I also wear mainly dresses when it gets too hot.Or my bathing suit and go for a swim!
So many rules to break and so little time! Love your tee post.
I love your t-shirt choices. I live in central Florida and have quite the t-shirt collection.
I used to be supremely against graphic tees, not because of age, but because I swore I would never wear anything that gave people reason to stare overlong at my chest. I've since changed my mind, of course – never say never! – and these tees are a great example of why. I still am leery about words on shirts, but graphics are now a-okay in my book.
I love that Dorothy Perkins t-shirt. I agree…t-shirts are necessary when you know you will be sweating lots and need to constantly wash the item.
Have a great weekend Patti!
