Tee Shirts: Simple Pleasures

My favorite casual style is to throw on a simple, V Neck Tee with a fitted jacket and jeans....
If I want to punch it up a bit, I will add a fun piece of jewelry or a great printed scarf.   Today, I decided to go out and find great Tee Shirt options for this type of style.  Especially with so many gorgeous colors on racks this spring, I just wanted to know what is affordable, breathable, and fun!  Here are the ones I liked the best:
MNG by Mango at JCP
Feels great and I love the fit
bought one in black
Joe Fresh Essential V Neck Top at JCP
Great fit
Bought bright pink
Jennifer Lopez Cuffed Tee
at Kohls
Three Colors (white, black, blue)
Silkiest feel of all I looked at
I bought one in white

Target Tee in Many Colors
Great fit
I bought light green and coral
Such an easy look, but you will feel great...especially if you throw on a fun necklace or scarf!

Have an amazing Tuesday everyone!!!

Your "living-like-you-feel-40" tip of the day:  Don't let lack of funds get you down.  Shop...be creative...work with what you have.  It's just as much fun!!


  1. Tee shirts are one of my absolute wardrobe staples. Thanks for all of these suggestions!

  2. Does Chico's have the best jewelry or what!

    You look beautiful in this color and what a great way to anticipate spring. There are so many gorgeous colors to look forward to this year.

    And I like your advice for those of us who are "under-deposited"...I actually think it's more fun because it forces you to be more creative. I've had more fun since I started thrifting and now I need a 12 step program!

  3. I agree - sometimes the best thing is just a tee and some comfy pants and jacket. I need to get some colors, though - I only have black and white short-sleeved tee shirts right now! I didn't know JCP has Joe Fresh. I always like JCP - I can find things that suit me and don't look too old or too young.

  4. You are so right the V neck is much more flattering. Once again you hit it off by making a simple T/shirt look fab. with that great scarf necklace it just adds that extra something. Love the colour of your great short jacket.

  5. You too gorgeous, Pam.

  6. When simple, and stylish, come together it is always a winner...J

  7. This is one of my favorite looks too! I have a really cute casual fitted blazer that I adore. Love that color on you, Pam!! xo

  8. I've been picking up nice T's as i thrift. i love T's by Lands End or Jones New York.

  9. Simple, easy & chic! My fav go-to look for the weekends!
    You look fab! Love the color of the blazer on you!

  10. I am with you Sister Pam! I love a simple tee with jeans and a scarf. You look wonderful. xoxoxo

  11. There's nothing quite so comfy as a t-shirt and jeans. Love the jacket you paired with yours -- what a beautiful color!

  12. Have you found a good white, not too sheer, not too tight,etc? That is what I always struggle with...

    1. Yes, Ellen...I think you will like the Jennifer Lopez one from Kohl's ...just click on the link in my post. It is silky...not tight...and not too sheer...just light enough. It is on sale right now!

  13. Have you found a good white, not too sheer, not too tight,etc? That is what I always struggle with...

  14. That necklace is fantastic! It works really well with this look.
