• 4 Ways to Style a Spring Tee


    With spring here, it’s time to pack up the jackets and break out the spring tees! The ‘jeans and tee’ routine is one we’re all familiar with so I thought I’d mix things up a bit by showing 4 different ways to style those tee shirts you’re pulling out of storage right now.

    Look #1: Layered with a chambray shirt and colored jeans

    As much as we want warm weather to be here to stay, sometimes mother nature has its own plans and we’re looking to layer our tee for warmth. Choose a lightweight chambray shirt to wear over your striped tee and pair it with some bright spring pants (love the perfect color of these green ones!)

    Look #2: Half tucked with a tube skirt and blazer


    Tube skirts are very in right now (if you dare), but they’re so form fitting it’s nice to add a slouchy tee and blazer so you don’t feel like you’re heading to a night club in the 1980s. It makes the outfit a bit more sophisticated. oldnavyblazer8

    Look #3: Knotted over a dress

    I love knotting slouchy tees over a dress. It’s a fun way to casual down your spring dresses when you’re just having a picnic at the park. I also knot my tees over high waisted jeans and tube skirts. So summery!

    Look #4: Toning down patterned jeans


    Patterned jeans, and acid wash jeans like I’m wearing here, are in fashion right now but they can be a little overwhelming to style. I love pairing mine with a simple tee like this gray v-neck. Perfect spring outfit!

      I know this is a sponsored post, but thank you for posting on this. I have the striped tee in the first look, as well as the cropped jeans. It’s really nice to find affordable fashion that I actually have hope of putting together for myself.
