Wardrobe Diaries: Plain White Tee























This weekend has been such a scorcher that all I've wanted to do is wear loose fitting cotton clothing. My trusty Paul and Joe white tee dress seemed the perfect solution, but for the sake of my blog proved a challenge to style. It's so much easier to create interesting pieces when the weather is cooler (notice the numerous celeb bloggers based in San Francisco?).

I decided to keep things simple and threw on my string of pearls layered with my lariat pearl necklace. I love fine jewelry and always try to incorporate them into my daily looks. Costume jewelry will only get you so far before it starts to tarnish and look outdated. Interesting story behind these two necklaces, the string of pearls I received as a wedding present from my aunt and the lariat necklace my mum designed herself and had specially made up for me. 

I love this tee dress, it's so comfortable and the delicate lace sleeves are a beautiful touch. I have one in heather grey along with this white one. Since it has such a boyish shape, I often have problems with it looking like I'm wearing my PJs. I threw on a black slip underneath the white tee and some chunky wedges to edge things up a bit. What do you think? Does this tee dress still look pyjama-ish after all my accessorising?

Your dress is amazing! I love the lace sleeves teamed up with pearl accessories! And thank you so much for your kind words on my newest post! The color orchid of the equipment blouse is prettier outside, however, their blouses tend to aim
for a loose fit so I think it is better to size down :)

Seeing that I'm a Francophile, I naturally gravitate towards French brands including your Paul & Joe (love them!). The French certainly knows how to do easy and chic pieces.
