Hello, friends. Happy Thursday! Today I’m sharing a simple spring outfit I wore to dinner when we were in Virginia last weekend featuring this cute flutter sleeve tee.
We went to The Home Place, where they serve family style Southern home cooking in this charming old house you see behind me. We’ve been going there to eat since soon after they opened in 1982, and the owner is still there greeting and seating you, just like always. I did notice that he looks a lot older than I remember… funny how that happens.
It’s always busy, and there are no reservations, so you just go and wait, but you don’t mind because you get to sit outside on the porch (if you’re lucky enough to get a seat) or in one of the verandas scattered about the yard. Out back, the view of the Virginia countryside with the mountains rising behind it is absolutely stunning.
I’ve mentioned this flutter sleeve tee a few times already. It’s so cute, I’m tempted to order another one — maybe the lavender. I have a rule against buying duplicates, but this is too cute to have just one, don’t you think?
It’s not much more than a basic tee, but the flutter sleeves are such a cute feminine detail, and the fabric is super soft and comfortable. It’s so easy to throw on with your favorite jeans or shorts, add a few accessories, and done! Instant outfit.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in this top. It is mostly rayon, though, so the directions say to wash in cold and hang to dry. I hope it doesn’t shrink much.
I love this shade of grey with mid-wash blue jeans, but I also love it with white, and I like how the white jeans give the outfit a dressier look for a dinner out.
These are the ones they call “tan” on the website, but they look grey to me! I also think the blush ones would be sooo cute with this outfit.
For accessories, I added a long pendant necklace to add interest and to draw the eye down and in towards my waist, and I wore silver teardrop earrings. Since the outfit is rather plain, I wanted larger earrings to bring attention up to my face. Both are old, so no links, sorry!
I finished with my usual D Yurman link ring and oval link bracelet. It makes accessorizing so easy when you have a few go-to pieces that you can wear with pretty much everything. My Alex and Ani wire bracelets are my gold version of this silver link bracelet, so your go-to pieces certainly don’t have to be super expensive, just pieces you love that are versatile and fit your personal style aesthetic so they work with most of your wardrobe.
I think this outfit shows how jeans and a t-shirt can be a cute outfit when you wear them with a great pair of shoes and add a few accessories.
