Sal’s Tee Shirt Challenge #3. ETA today’s tee

Can you stand some more tee shirts? I found out I, who thought I had very few tees, have way more than I thought. Surprise to me, most are woven, not knit. Most are thrifted. Sal, thank you for this challenge. I needed to edit some of these tees out. I see I need to edit photos so will add them soon.
1/2: Silk animal print tee with EF black silk pants and EF espadrilles , Consignment small bag, horn and bead bracelets.
3/4: pink silk woven tee and navy EF pants. Consignment bag and Ugg suede loafers. Gifted summer scarf.
5/6: Lucky yeiiow floral tee, cut to make a tie at hem and EF grey pants, consignment bag.
ETA: Navy and white narrow stripe worn here with grey crepe EF pants, a cheap navy bandana and a navy print fabric bag from a local craftsman.
The photos are not loading. I will try from my phone later. Shoes are Munroe slip-on sneakers from Nordstrom Rack

    These are some great tees! The animal print one is fun and I like the idea of cutting the hem on the third one so you can tie it. Seems like I have some that would work better that way.

    You have great collection of tees! Love silk animal print tee - so dramatic! 

  • torontogirl replied 2 months ago

    Fabulous - love the detail and structure that the tie adds in the last one.

    Love seeing you have fun with this challenge :)

    The first outfit is KILLER fab Joy, and the items fit really well. Summer Animal Print and Black Chic!

    Thank you, Robin, slim cat, torontogirl and Angie. I have learned that I should not get cotton knit tees. I do have the classic white tee and black tee just because I kept reading that every woman should have them. They are hardly ever worn because I dislike the fabric. Before moving to Colorado, the sleeves were too warm. I no longer have that excuse.

    1 is fabulous. It’s not ‘just a tee.’ I like number three tremendously as well. 2 looks like a good essential.

  • shevia replied 2 months ago

    All three outfits (and tees) look excellent! Nothing to edit here.

    Thank you Rachylou and Shevia. You give me confidence. The silk tees have been washed many times and have not faded. I hang them to dry and iron if needed. I also have a couple of blue ones that I wore with black silk pants but did not get a photo.

    These are lovely summer looks. I love the animal print but they are all good. I like a woven tee too- I do have a couple of knit cotton jersey type ones.

    You look great in these challenging times.

    Thank you, Sal. I consider this high praise in these difficult times. Does anyone have any ideas of what can be done to celebrate a 50th anniversary during these times? DH asked me today but I have no ideas. We can’t go anywhere or even eat out unless things change and even that may not be safe, our family and friends, or what is left, are scattered and in poor health themselves. I feel strongly that we need to do something to celebrate this milestone...but what?

    Bake yourselves a beautiful cake? (Diabetic friendly, is that possible?) Ice it wishing yourselves a happy 50th wedding anniversary, photograph or video yourselves cutting it and if possible find old photos of yourselves from the wedding and maybe each decade in between, and of any of the gifts you may have previously got for anniversaries. (For example, I got pearl earrings for our 30th.) Then make some sort of a photo montage that you can share electronically.
    Congratulations and good luck!

    Thank you, Jenni, those are some good ideas.
