A casual spring, summer and fall ensemble made up of two perfectly easy to wear items that are so on point not just from a trend perspective but also on price. A flat buttery soft slide shoe with decorative bow detail and a cold shoulder flow easy tee shirt. If you're not a pink fan, no worries, this tee shirt also comes in six other colors, and the shoes are also available in black.
I'm excited to share this outfit with you because I get so many compliments every time I wear these shoes. They are Nordstrom's BP brand and after I purchased them they were immediately sold out everywhere, but have just been re-stocked in all sizes in both colors. As much as I love high heels, cute flats are a must for when I either have a lot of walking to do, running errands or when my feet feel tired and sore after a hard tennis match, also known as "tennis toes"!
The tee shirt is by Free People and has an asymmetrical hem line, is super soft, feather light and flowy so it doesn't cling which makes it perfect for our hot Arizona summers. I'm a size 4 or 6 and I bought a size small as it runs big. Good news is that it washes beautifully and is immediately ready to wear. The pictures above were taken after I'd washed it. I machine washed it with similar colors on a cold gentle cycle (to be safe), and then put it in the dryer on a low temperature for about 15 minutes or so. I took it out promptly when it was dry and hung it up and it was ready to wear exactly as it was. No ironing, no shrinkage and no fading.
Both the shoes and the tee shirt look great with jeans in almost any color as well as a great pairing with shorts. The Baublebar pastel pink "Crispin" drop earrings match the tee perfectly so I've linked them below as well as the exact same jeans I'm wearing in this look - my favorite ripped white jeans from J Brand. They are slightly cropped so they show off the ankle nicely and they have the let-down hem detail.
Although the tee and the shoes are shown below in different colors, the link takes you directly to where you can shop the item and select your color of choice. I'm sorry I couldn't find my Fendi bag out there in the online shopping galaxy, I've had it for over twenty years, so I guess that's a classified vintage!
Have a wonderful week, and a happy Passover to my Jewish friends around the world
