summer uniform

Have you seen those chic (probably Parisian) ladies that make simple white jeans paired with a gray tee so darn fabulous?
Everyone (ok, maybe just here & here) are talking about this new summer uniform... and I am recently obsessed! (add it to the list, right!?)
After finding a selection of near-perfect v-neck tees on sale for $5 at Old Navy over the 4th of July weekend, I decided I am ready to start wearing this combo every. single. day. Don't judge me... it has been in triple digits for over a week straight now, and my brain is fried... and sweaty! 
{What I Wore: Old Navy tee // J.Crew denim // Michael Kors sandals // Ray Ban sunnies }
{Get the Look}
gray tee {$8.50} + white jeans {$25} + python sandals {$79} + unique necklace {$15) + classic sunnies {$12}
Minimal make-up, easy top knot, and light basics are my summer uniform for work (unfortunately, dresses/skirts, shorts, and anything flowy is a hazard for the research lab and strictly off limits)
What is yours?

  1. I love how you accesorized this, that necklace and sandals? Perfect!

    I'm afraid of white jeans, but you might have inspired me to try them!

  3. You make it look chic, too! It's effortlessly cool. I love it!  I tend to reach for flowy skirts or shorts and tees during the summer.

  8. A gray t-shirt is one of my favorite accessories.  It goes with everything.  I definitely need to check out Old Navy.

  9. I personally love this look because I am already obsessed with white jeans!!  V neck t's are simple, but so flattering.  They had neon ones at Target a couple weeks ago.. I scooped them right up!! :)

    AW I love this outfit! :) Perfect. Damn research labs not allowing you to wear dresses. I work for a manufacturing company which also if I worked on the floor I would be limited in my selection. BUT lucky for me I work in the office and never have been on the floor! SO I am normally all about the dresses. :)

    You are also making me REALLY want to buy some white jeans! I know I know... I dont have them already!? What I am insane!? I guess I am! Sarahttp://seventwentysomethings.blogspot.com

  13. Definitely a simple yet chic outfit! You look fabulous as usual. I just can't even wear jeans right now in this heat... if I even look at them, I start to sweat. :)

  14. So simple and yet so chic! I'd probably swap out the white jeans for white shorts in this heat but it's a look I'd def wear!

  27. It's all about carrying the Tide-to-go pen around with you! I stash them at work, in the car, and in my purse... the only way I trust myself to wear white!

  33. You need to get on the white jean hunt ASAP! now that it is "acceptable" to wear them all year long, it is just crazy to even try and live without them ;)

  36. I love wearing outfits of basic colors.  I really like this one!  It's amazing how a pair of white jeans and just a basic gray tee can feel and look so put together.  Love this!! (I'm pulling my gray tee out of my dresser as I type... kind of, haha!)

  37. What a great summer look! I love your necklace. 

    I tend to stick with blue jeans..I'm too messy to risk white - I know I'd spill something on them right away haha

    ReplyDelete
  38. Haha the sad part is that I know exactly what kind of people (aka parisians) you're talking about! You look fabulously chic and casual!

  40. i totally love grey v necks. i find them perfect. i have one just like this. i love how you paired it with the white - it looks great! and it's very simple, but summery and nice

    ReplyDelete
  41. AHHH, SAME. I can't wear skirts/dresses/open shoes. Sometimes its so annoying getting dressed for work in pants and long sleeves when its 90 degrees out. Safety first?    Those jeans look great on you though. I've been looking for a pair of white jeans but none that have looked good :(

  42. Such a chic outfit for a great price! Hmm I haven't started work yet, but we have to wear the a set uniform :(
