Striped tee collaboration & link up

May 31, 2016


Happy Tuesday! Todays link up and post is a treat as I am joining my longtime blogging buddy Becky for a styling collaboration. Becky and I both discovered we owned the same striped tee from our “$10 at Target” posts (see mine and hers) and so I knew right away that a collaboration was in store.



I choose to style my tee with cognac accessories and linen pants.  Since linen pants are making a comeback I pulled these out of storage and wore them in full force. This outfit felt like wearing pajamas as the pants have an elastic and drawstring and this tee is just the right fit, making for a relaxed casual look to wear to dinner with my family and an evening at church.

This striped tee is going to get years of wear and use as I just love how versatile it is for the small price I paid for it ($3) and you can’t beat that.



Now I hope you can visit Becky’s post and link up to “Tuesday Talk” as well as see how she styled her striped tee:
