Red and Navy Striped Tee


Today I’m sharing some of my favorite, most versatile basics for spring and summer.  This navy and red striped tee in particular is a new score from (you guessed it) Everlane.  They call it their “heavyweight tee” which aptly describes the thicker cotton fabric. It can be tough to pull off a true t-shirt at the office, but that little extra heft to the fabric helps hold a beautiful shape, giving a crisper and more substantial work-worthy look.  At the same time, I plan on wearing this tee a ton with white jean shorts and skirts (need this one and this one!) all summer long.


Although these white silk pants are a pair I bought on sale two years ago, their high-waisted silhouette and tapered leg have stood the test of time.  They’re still one of my most heavily worn items during the warmer months, and I highly recommend checking out the pairs I’ve linked to below if you don’t have something similar in your closet.  They’re a really refreshing spring and summer alternative to black pants at the office, and I’ve also worn them a ton casually with the cuff rolled up and sandals to dinner, brunch… you name it.

    I love white jeans and shorts for summer also. I’ve already worn my jeans but I have to check my white shorts to make sure they are still good to go. Love the striped tee as well.

    Such a great ensemble! Just one question– how do you keep white silk pants from looking dinghy or yellowed, especially as much as you have enjoyed wearing them? Frequent dry cleaning doesn’t seem to be the answer!

  7. That striped tee is great! Love that it is a bit thicker and you can wear it to the office.
