Peace

If I didn't have this thing I go to sometimes called "work" I would pretty much live in t-shirts every single day. (Business casual environment there). My designated "t-shirt drawer" in my dresser is crammed full, but I can always make room for more, because there's no such thing as enough t-shirts, right?

So of course I jumped on it when the folks at Skip N' Whistle offered me an opp to try a tee from their collection. Skip N' Whistle is a New Orleans-based company who designs and screen prints their own tees - and they've got a plethora of quirky designs to pick from.

And when wearing a quirky tee, I figure everything else would need to have a bit more personality to make it all work - so I added a lippy necklace with bling, a mirrored purse, and some bold colors.

  3. Because only you, my fashion hero, can make tees look so elegant and sophisticated! Funny, coz I was just thinking to Google "how to bind your breasts" because my girls always make me look dumpy when I try to rock the tee, and here you are, making it work regardless. Fashion on, my friend!

    1. It's probably because I don't have much in the way of "girls." Haha.

  4. I can live in tees. I hate ironing and tees are so comfy. These days, there are so many varieties of tees that I can dress up and how cute it is for you to pair the necklace with the tee.

  7. Love, love, love this look! I absolutely LOVE seeing tees paired with pencil skirts or something a little dressier. Love the color of your heels with the coral skirt.

    They have a lot of really cute choices!

  8. I love the way you jazzed up this t-shirt. It looks awesome with your coral skirt, and it the fabulous jewelry!

  9. Very cute - i think you rock the t shirt look.
    I dont own many t shirts to be honest, i've always thought they're not dressy enough and the high neckline does not do me any favors.

  13. I adore pairing t shirts with skirts. In fact, I just bought some more plain basic tees this weekend to do so. :) You look great here! And yes- Peace!

  14. Too cute! What a great, casual vibe the tee lends to the outfit. I am definitely more of a "casual-wearer" and love sporty chic clothes, though admittedly, I do not own many tees!

  15. Love the lippy necklace above the peace sign! It's perfect! I just checked them out and they have some great cat t-shirts. Which I love of course!

    1. I considered a cat tee but then I wondered if I'd be thought of as a "cat poser" then since I have no cats and I'm actually really allergic to them (which is a shame, such cuties). ;o)

  16. So loving those blue suede shoes ! :)

  17. I'm so with you on the tee shirt thing, there's no such thing as too many! This is such a great look! How is the shirt with jeans? Is it long enough? Is the material soft? I love a good tee shirt, but I'm a stickler on quality. What do you think?

    1. The tee itself is Gildan brand, 100% cotton. It hits me about mid-hip is a nice mid-weight material. I don't think I'll have a problem with random holes developing or anything. However, I believe SNW offers other tee options as well, if you're looking for more fitted, softer tees. I can't speak to those, but I'm happy with what I've got. Hope this helps!

  18. If I didn't have to work, I would never get dressed. I would be wearing pyjamas and yoga gear all. the. time. So it's probably for the best that the odds of winning the lottery are against me.
    I struggle with incorporating more casual pieces into my work wear. I find I end up looking sloppy. Yours totally works though!

    1. Yeah but if you won the lottery, think of all the pimped out PJs and exercise gear you could get! ;o)

  19. I love the accessories you chose for this outfit, particularly the bracelets. Such a pretty combination!

  20. You look great Lisa! I love the idea of dressing up a T shirt with a pencil skirt and accessories. It's the perfect happy medium of being casual, yet a little dressed up. Your accessories as always are awesome too!

  21. I never would have thought to do a patterned tee with a blazer and pencil skirt! Love! You look great. I love the sass you added with the fun jewelry. You look so pulled together and cute. Well done! : )

  23. I love a good tee - I agree that you can never own too many. The pencil skirt, blazer, and great accessories really elevate the tee - it's funky and fun. :)

  24. I dont own too many tees since I like to spend my clothing money more on clothes I wear more often. This is such a fun tee and your necklace - need in my closet :)

    1. You sold me on the shoes! They were the best-looking option, IMO, and the price was pretty good. Plus, they are actually comfy!

  29. I couldn't agree more about t-shirts. I have one drawer full.

    I love the colours you've chosen again. They really pop.

    1. I picked this one just because it looks like the original - but the original was too expensive for my taste.

  33. Lovely tee! I really like the tee and pencil skirt combination. Like you, I love tees, but don't wear them as much as I'd like as some days I have to dress up more for the office.

    1. I'm the same way - though I've "snuck" in tees before as shells under a blazer and trousers. Something plain and clean.

  35. Lisa,
    I love this quirky outfit, it really works! All of the elements, and colors are unusual. It takes real talent to put this together, I just love it.

  40. I'm a sucker for a good logo tee and I love the way you added a sparkle necklace to glam it up. I'm going to try this on my Barbie and Blondie shirts.

  42. I love T-Shirts too and lately I love dressing them up with Pencil Skirts or other Skirts like I did a couple of weeks ago. This is an outfit after my heart. Loving all the Cobalt pieces. Again, I need some Cobalt or Royal Blue Pumps. As always your jewelry is the perfect icing to an already super gorgeous outfit cake! =)
