June Challenge: More Travel Week Casual

I didn't get a photo yesterday but wore Paige dark skinnies rolled, leopard drapey top and red flats (very old needing replacement). I had a black short sleeved cardi too but didn't need it. (See first 3 finds and last one)
Today is a return of the EF grey knit pants, rolled a bit higher; and an oversized silk woven tee. I have on the leopard house shoes but will change to black ankle strap flats. I was inspired to get this tee at a consignment store after seeing a similar patterned tee on Shannon.
All comments and suggestions welcomed.

    Oh my goodness, I absolutely LOVE that tee!  It's great, plus it's great on you.

    this is a classic example of why comfort doesn't need to be sacrificed to look great.  Tee and knit pants, I mean how much easier can it get?  Just  need a dressy or interesting aspect to the pieces (hammering that into my head....)

    I really love that tee.

    Elizabeth and Shedev, thank you for commenting. Elizabeth, this outfit is very comfortable and easy. I hope that the tee doesn't look too big or sloppy on me. It is borderline but breezy for a hot day. Shedev, I love this tee too. It's hard to find a pattern that I really like, but I am enjoying this one.

    Those are the Crocs, yes?  I have this exact pattern and style and love them for travel.  They work well for wet days in the farmers market, runs to the wash house when camping, and going to Six Flags with the kids.  Mine are quite worn and in need of replacement.  Love your column of silvery grey!

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    Yes, they are Crocs and very useful, as you said.

    Great look...I love watching the fun you are having with this challenge...Good for you trolling the consignment shops for finds...Enjoy your remaining days of this one...

    Oooh today's outfit looks super Joy! I can picture it with the ankle strap flats. How did the height of the roll play with them? In my mind it seems a bit high, but probably necessary for the weather. Yesterday's outfit sounds good too. I would love to find a few tees like this one you're wearing here.

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    Thank you, Crutcher. This exercise had made me quite content with my closet. I watch for pieces like this tee that are breezy but not bare. Now I am looking for a few sheer tops that can be popped over a tank as a third piece.
    Aida, you are right about the rolled pants, too high for fashion but good for comfort. It is also easy to change the length...shorter for walking the dog, longer for shopping and dinner.

    Love this tee on you Joy. It's rather gorgeous but I assume still comfortable? I really would love to add a few tees like this to my wardrobe. This is a great example of a comfortably dressy outfit that goes beyond mere jeans and tshirt.

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    Maneera, this outfit is very comfortable. The tee is soft but not too thin. The pants are a stretchy blend of viscose, nylon and Lycra and are not tight or clingy. I have found that nylon in a fabric blend makes it strong, light weight and resistant to wrinkles. It is cooler to wear than a polyester.

    Joy, you look great, and that T was a perfect choice!
