i’m wearing: zara faux leather sleeve t-shirt (this metallic sleeve tee is super cute too), old navy black maxi, sexi flip sandal c/o crocs (i LOVE these sandals), shopbop necklace, tag watch, DVF cat eye sunnies c/o sunglassesshop.com. my nail polish is “plum seduction” by revlon.

i get a lot of requests for casual ootd posts so i thought i would share one of my fave comfy go-to outfits. i LOVE me a good grey t-shirt. no really…i own like 10 of them. i wear them to work out in, to casual playdates and even on date night. i recently added this faux leather sleeved tee to my rotation and i really like it although i kinda wish i would have went up a size. and you can never go wrong with a maxi skirt. this is my toddler proof outfit…you can’t see stains from sticky little hands and it doesn’t wrinkle either. mom approved. =)

    How funny. I have started learning a little recently about the need to be “kid proof” in your wardrobe. Only a little though. Hee Hee

    Cute t-shirt. I see why you like it.

    I love grey too! It doesn’t match anything, therefore it goes with anything (at least, that’s what I always say haha). Love seeing these casual outfits, but I am always inspired by you being able to dress up even after becoming a mom!

    I just love the faux leather sleeves. They are the perfect touch to a basic grey tee.

    What a fun tee! I am always looking for kid friendly clothes since my 4 year old thinks he has clean hands all the time.

    Love this outfit – it looks so cute & comfy! I ordered this shirt online too and send it back for a bigger size because it was cut pretty small…can’t wait to get mine in the mail! πŸ™‚

    Love this – I agree about the grey tops, I have several, at the weekends you can often find me in my Gap skinnies and a grey tee. I’ve seen quite a few of these contrasting tees, usually with leather, but I haven’t seen one styled with a skirt like this yet. I’m a huge fan!

    Hi! I am buying this on eBay (possibly). I know this is an older post but hopefully you can help me. I am a small typically but love my t shirts to fit like a medium. The listing is a large, but seller says the large fits like a medium. Do you mind telling me how you think it fits? Thanks!

      Hi Kristine! I agree with the seller…mine runs small. I have a small and it fits more like an XS. Hope that helps!
