The lightweight long sleeved tee

The things that I've found that I'm lacking in my closet are basic, solid tees. I love my patterns, maybe too much, and sometimes a basic solid is what an outfit needs. I love how they create a blank slate for layers and accessories. When I shop for basics like this, I still look for details that add interest. Basics with a twist. And that pretty much sums up what I love about this easy, lightweight, tissue tee.

I wanted to style it a couple of ways for you, so when I was brainstorming over the weekend, I put together the flat lay above with Jenna's help. She reminded me of my awesome blush colored skinnies that I have, and look how great they work together! I would like to try it with a skirt also or maybe layered over my tank dress - I will have to play around with the silhouette a bit!

What I love about my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases is that they are great on their own or styled with each other. I've been mixing and matching them all week and you can check them out here and here if you've missed those outfits. Today I'm pairing the lightweight tee with these berry colored flats and my new Nadri bangle

Speaking of Nadri bangles, I posted this photo above on Instagram this weekend. You may remember me talking about them during Black Friday last year. I hadn't ever tried them before, but Jenna introduced me to them, and I loved how well they fit my wrists! Ever since then, I try and buy them at the Rack or whenever else I see them on sale. I couldn't resist taking the family photo above. 

Alright well I guess that's enough enabling for one post! :)



  1. The tee looks super comfy! Love it with the blush skinnies.
