Tiered Hem Linen Tee Redux

I love it when a company brings a great item of clothing back for a second season.

I had this tiered hem linen tee last year in the pink, and I wore it a ton. This year they’ve brought it back in a bunch of other gorgeous colors, including this dusty periwinkle blue.

I love the split neck, the gently ruffled sleeves, and of course the tiered hemline. It wears like a basic tee but it looks anything but.

I ordered this tee in the black and red in a size small, but I was afraid they would be too snug on me after they’re washed, so I exchanged them for this periwinkle blue in the medium.

I like the loser fit, and now I’m not so worried about shrinkage.

FYI, Nordstrom has almost sold out of this color, but Zappo’s carries it. Some colors are on sale, but this one is full price. Still, at $44, I think it’s a good value.

It also comes in a 3/4-sleeve version, if you’re interested. I have that one in the olive green from last year, and it’s really cute too.

I felt like this periwinklw color was begging to be paired with white jeans, and who am I to resist the call of white jeans in the springtime???

This top would also look nice with darker wash jeans, or white or navy pants. And I suppose you would wear it with a color, but I almost always pair light blue with white in the spring and summer. #plainjane

For accessories, I wore my these white hoop earrings and a gold beaded bracelet. Oh, and hey, this bracelet just went on sale 40% off!

I don’t think this outfit needs a necklace, but I’d like it better with something delicate to fill the neckline. I had my star necklace and small charm pendant with me the day of this shoot, but I forgot to put them on.

My natural inclination was to wear blush or nude shoes with this look, but I decided to take a step outside of my comfort zone (see what I did there?) and try these cheetah print flats.

Even though there’s black in the print, the white background keeps them light enough to work with the muted tones in this outfit.

I carried my taupe Everlane tote, which isn’t necessarily my first choice, but it’s what I had with me, and I actually like how it works with the rest of the outfit.

This is the kind of outfit I live in during the spring and summer. Between the details on the tee and the pattern in the shoes, this outfit looks far more special than a basic jeans-and-tee, but it’s just as easy to throw on and go.
