Outfit Makeover – Jeans and T-Shirt


One thing that drives me crazy is when people use the excuse of “no time” to justify their lack of style (effort). Sorry folks, you just can’t use that as an excuse! 

Take the average outfit you see out grocery shopping or at the mall.  In fact, I even saw something very similar at a wedding shower once.

tee and jeans

Here you have a baggy t-shirt, ill-fitting pair of “mom” jeans, a pair of sneakers and any random bag. I simply do not understand the appeal of a t-shirt like this. Or most t-shirts in general. Don’t get me wrong, I wear t-shirts: to sleep in, to work out in, and yes, I will put on the OKC Thunder shirts at games that they leave in your chair during playoffs. (I’m not that girl.) I just don’t see how they are acceptable “wear” for most other occasions.

At the very least, wear something a little bit fitted with no logo! Take the same combination of t-shirt, jeans, bag, and shoes and swap for some better fitting and more coordinated items and you have:

Seriously, SAME combination. And this is NOT taking any extra time. In fact, if you throw on flats you are actually saving time by not wearing socks! If you insist on a casual look, this is the way to go! And if you’re feeling extra ambitious go ahead and throw on a blazer!

Just a little something to consider next time you leave the house! We’d all appreciate it. 

** Full Disclosure: About an hour after I finished this post I ran to the store in workout pants and a grey t-shirt. In my defense, it was a fitted tee and no one saw me. :)
