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.

Love the look! Did you find the t-shirt to be at all see through? It's so hard to find in white!!
