Lookbook: Boyfriend tee

I’m not a very “casual” dresser. I own very few sweatshirts and t-shirts. I think if you ask any of my friends that have known me for a long time they will probably tell you that they have never seen me in a t-shirt. And if they have it was probably only when required by my sorority during Greek Week. However, I have fallen in love with my tissue boyfriend tee from J. Crew. I had been feeling constricted earlier that day in my work clothes, so decided to change and go casual for the evening.

What I’m Wearing:
Tee: J.Crew
Jeans: Taverniti So
Shoes: Miu Miu
Scarf: Nordstrom
boyfriend tee

I tend to buy lots of basics for layering underneath things but never to wear alone, J commented how he really liked me in this outfit as he’s so used to seeing me in layers. This was the first time that I was just plain and simple. Before we headed out to dinner I grabbed the scarf as I felt too plain with just the tee and the jeans.

This boyfriend tee is the perfect fit as it’s not too baggy, super comfy and I like it a lot because unlike a lot of white tees I buy, this one isn’t sheer so I don’t have to wear a tank underneath it. I already have a black version as well and am going to pick up more colors next time I’m in J. Crew. I’m actually planning on having two sets, one for wearing to bed and one for wearing out, that’s how awesome they are!

    lauren hutton did that look as well but topped it off with a pearl necklace and heels for a jcrew ad. i posted an entry about her look. i like your version by using that scarf, it gives it a nice punch of pink.

    BF tees are quite possibly the comfiest thing you can wear. I've been living in them for the past couple of days. I like this look-it's very chic but laid back at the same time. perfect combo.

    Diane – yes, especially for the summer.

    kelly – i haven't been much of a jcrew lover in the past but now am totally sold on all their stuff!

    little bits of splendor – you're right, heels do always help dress it up!

    mizzj – it is, isn't it? that's why my husband was even a bit shocked to see me in it.

    Hanako – totally, I have now moved over to the tee-shirt wearing crowd. 🙂

    What makes the tee so sexy are the heels. And, of course, the way you carry yourself in them.

    I wear my white tee with big cocktail rings or wide studded leather wristbands (for a rocker chic look).

    My boyfriend likes white tees on me because he says I look playful and super comfy in them.

    I love love this look of yours!
