A Modern Red Tee

modern red tee

Lightweight mildly-slouch tees are my go-to warm weather wear. They can get dressed up for work without looking too dressed up, and they are so easy to casual out for after-hours. I wore the tee with a slim skirt for an office day, then changed into shorts for comfort! no heels running around later on.

What are easy transitional office-home summer pieces for you?

  4. Okay, so does this mean I have to invest in some J.Crew tees? Because it's got the perfect amount of slouch to it. Stunning as always, Lisa! In both outfits.

    1. I personally love J.Crew tees - the Vintage style - they sell sim Factory versions too, in a boatload of colors.

  6. I love the Orange-Red Color of that tee. I have a tee in that Color too. I like how you styled it both times. In the first outfit I love the Stripped Skirt & Purse & of course the 2-toned Bubble Necklace. And those Shorts are Sassy. Orange looks awesome with Turquoise. I must give this color combo a try, myself.

    Have a Great Weekend, Lisa, =)

  9. yummy, yummy, yummy orange!! I love this- I can never quite work the simple tee with a pencil skirt- maybe my torso is just wrong for it (or perhaps I just need a perfect tee...)- you look stunning darlin'!

    1. I do the half-tuck with the pencil skirts, kind of cheating when it comes to looking neat.

  10. I love this look! Especially the first one, it's just so perfect - the orange,the purse with one orange stripe, the leopard heels, everything! Orange really suits you, makes you all glowy!

    When it's this hot, it's A-line skirts I reach for. Or my Khaleesi maxi dress, but that one's slightly more of an arsepain since it requires a strapless bra.

  11. Love these no fuss looks. Definitely perfect for summer!

  12. I love this outfit, and you look fantastic in it. The stripes on the skirt click nicely with the stripes on the bag. It's casual but still elegant. Nice!

  13. I am loving the skirt mixed with the animal print pumps!

  18. What a great transition! You rock the one color from head to toe trend.
    I do wear t shirts to work but usually layer them with a jacket.

  19. I LOVE that top with the skirt! Gorgeous!

  20. OH my goooosh I love both of these outfits! J. Crew modern red is my favorite, such a pretty orange-y red. I always love the outfits you put together too, classy and unique.

    After eyeing your Clarks wedges before, I really think I must buy them! How do you think the sizing runs? I'm either a 7 1/2 or an 8 (8 in J. Crew retail shoes, 7 1/2 in a lot of other brands), so I'm not sure which to order...

    1. I'm also a 7.5 in most shoes and 8 in JC shoes. I got the Clarks in 7.5 and they fit TTS for me. Plus they are really really comfy, I wore them around town right out of the box!

  21. Scarves and a cardigan here since we don't ever really get that warm!

  22. Oh my, I love both of these outfits! I couldn't agree with you more about slouchy tees for summer. They are great for transitioning from work to going out just by switching up accessories. Love the leopard heels with the skirt outfit too!

  23. I love the top with both the skirt and shorts! Great pulled together look.

  29. Both these looks are amazing, just loving the burst of colour!

  30. I love the monochromatic element of both outfits! The shoes in the first pic are very lady like but the leopard paired with the stripes is very now.

  31. Very cute outfits and the perfect transition from work to play! I love the one tortoiseshell and turquoise bracelet you're sporting today too. It looks lovely against the red/orange color.

  32. Love the leopard shoes with the red! Very clever chic styling! Wish I had bought that bag ... I waited and it sold out.

    1. The bag fits loads more than it looks like it could, but it's got big ole zippers!

  38. LOVE the striped skirt! It looks great. I just picked up a black and white one ( maternity), but haven't quite figured out how to wear it yet.

  39. I'm trying very hard not to make bad orange jokes here but they're all that my brain is coming up with right now. Haha! I love a simple shirt and skirt ensemble, especially in bright colors like orange! :D

    1. They're kind of slouchy, soft and kind of thin which I like.

  47. I love the statement necklace with the evening outfit! Of course I'm partial to pencil skirts, so I like how you made the casual tee more work appropriate as well! :)

  51. Gosh girl you so got the hang of it. Styling I mean. Great combinations.
    Sometimes I remember a combination of you and think "Oh I have something like that in the closet... perhaps I should combine it with..." Before I have reached my closet... pffff away is the thought. Hopeless. That is what I am. LOL

  52. What a great switch up!! I love both looks so much :) Stylish and beautiful as ever.
