Breathing New Life into an Old Favourite!
Growing up, t-shirts were worn casually, often with jeans on weekends.
This has changed considerably in recent times, where t-shirts are worn in many contexts:
I love this classic look of black and red and find it hard to beat.
I picked this t-shirt up when we went to Sydney to see the New Zealand Pop-up Globe production of ‘A Comedy of Errors’, but my favourite Shakespeare tragedy is Macbeth, and as a retired English teacher I’m only too happy to promote it!
I love the way it edges up a very pretty, feminine skirt and gives it further scope of wear:
It teamed very well with the collarless pleather three-quarter sleeve jacket, my dancing dollies necklace and red suedette shoes.
I’ve generally found that I can get more daily wear out of my “dressy skirts”:
So not only does this little t-shirt reflect my personal life philosophy – plant a tree – but it was very easy to team it with this recent fringe trend Joseph Ribkoff skirt for a cheap Tuesday at the movies.
It was a bit chilly but that was easily sorted with tights, booties, a scarf and a cropped leather jacket:
I found that I did not choose this ladder lace skirt to be worn much but by adding a cute t-shirt really made it accessible and wearable.
Too often, I have had beautiful skirts that have hung in my wardrobe and not been worn because they were too dressy for most of the occasions of my life.
But not anymore!!
So Voila! A cute, casual outfit is born!
I hope you’ve been inspired to get more wear out of your dressy skirts paired with your cute t-shirts so that your wardrobe can carry you further!
I would love to hear what you think about this way of dressing in the comments and by leaving a like or follow…

Thank you!! I fear I’ve gone a bit crazy with this t-short trend but they’re ideal for me here in Australia because they’re cool, breathable cotton and they cover the shoulders preventing sunburn in summer! Thank you for commenting and have a great week! Donna
