How To Look Put Together When Wearing a T-Shirt








White T-Shirt (comes in several colors)// Jeans

The older I get, the more casual I become. It's not that I have become lazy, I just find myself going out to run errands in an outfit like in the photos above rather than in a skirt or a dress because of comfort. Don't get me wrong, I love getting dressed up, but there is something so refreshing about just throwing on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. 

I've always equated 'jeans and t-shirt' with sloppiness. But, as I have gotten more comfortable in my own style and tastes, I've taken that often-made-sloppy look and made it my own.

The key to a non-sloppy version is to keep things clean and simple. The t-shirt was wrinkly before I put it on but I made sure to steam it so it looked crisp and fresh. I chose non-ripped denim which gives a little more of a ladylike vibe. I love distressed denim, but I find that wearing a t-shirt and distressed denim makes me feel a little too underdressed and in turn I feel uncomfortable. The pair I am wearing are SUPER comfortable. They have very little stretch to them, so they are a true denim material. They run true to size.

I think the key to looking very put together when just wearing jeans and a tee is that your hair and makeup should be done how you would normally wear it. There are so many times I run out of the house with my hair up in a top knot and no makeup, and I have no problem doing so. But, I definitely think that when I'm wearing a super casual outfit, it looks ten times more 'together' when I have done something to my hair and put a little bit of makeup on. 

The t-shirt is kind of random, but as soon as I felt the material, I knew I was going to love it. Sure enough, I went back and ordered 3 more. At under $10 (the promo codes change daily, but check out the top of the site for the right one) this shirt is a must-have. 

I also made sure to choose classic accessories that don't take away from simpleness of the outfit and don't try to over dress up the outfit.
