Must-Have $22 Tee for Spring #FashionFriday

Greetings, friends! Cheers to Friday! Is it just me, or is this month dragging on for.ev.er??? I’m so happy it’s finally the weekend.

Today I have a super simple outfit you can just throw on and go just about anywhere this spring. The pièce de résistance is this $22 twist front tee.

I had this tee last year in a gorgeous magenta color, and I wore it a ton so I was so glad to see they brought it back for 2018.

The wide rounded neckline is flattering yet modest, and the sleeves are the perfect length and shape — not too short or too long or too snug or too wide. I realize they’re just plain short sleeves, but it’s amazing how the cut of a simple short sleeve can make or break a top.

I was immediately drawn to this grey medium heather, but it also comes in black and white.

Obviously this grey tee would work with just about any color, but I think it pairs beautifully with white.

For size reference, I got this tee in the medium, and I washed and dried it before taking these pictures. It’s still a little large, and I’m wondering if I should have gone with a small, but it’s too late now! I do like that I can throw it in the dryer.

The twist front detail is such a nice touch and levels up what is otherwise a basic t-shirt into a really cute top. It also makes a great layering piece for under cardigans and denim jackets.

I know some of you hate these slides, and that’s fine. Not very style is for everyone. I like them though. I particularly like how they have a bit of an ivory cast to them so they’re not a stark white.

There are plenty of other options if slides aren’t for you. You could wear just about any shoe with this outfit — loafers, espadrille sandals, ballet flats, flat sandals, even fashion sneakers.

I carried my Rebecca Minkoff Darren shoulder bag again! I find myself going for this bag most days when I don’t need to carry my larger tote. The putty color is so perfect for spring and summer, the leather is like butter, and it’s a nice cross between a structured tote and a slouchy hobo.

The part I like best is that it’s unlined — it just has raw leather inside. I’ve really started to dislike the cloth lining in most bags; it just feels so chinzy to me — even on higher end bags like Rebecca Minkoff and Tory Burch. I’m loving the trend towards unlined handbags right now, and this one even manages to have a divided interior as well as a few pockets for organization.

Also, the silver studs and hardware give it a bit of an edge, making it perfect for casual everyday outfits.

I did get this bag on a 25% off sale, as it’s a bit of an investment. I will keep an eye on various retailers and let you know if I see it on sale again! It also comes in a few other colors — white, black, and a really pretty beige they call dark cameo.

These are my go-to white ankle jeans that I’ve talked about a gazillion times before, so I won’t go on about them again!

Finally, I accessorized with this layered necklace. I thought the colors worked perfectly with this outfit, and since it’s so plain, I wanted a piece of jewelry that makes a bit of a statement.
