Love a simple tee

Tee - Old Navy, Skirt - J Crew, Shoes - Steve Madden, Blazer - H&M

One of my absolute favorite outfits is a cute tee, tucked into a pencil skirt with or without a blazer over top depending on the weather. This outfit is just that. I picked up this adorable "love" tee at Old Navy for $9 and its the most comfortable tee ever.

I decided to wear it tucked into my purple J Crew pencil skirt paired with my Steve Madden cobalt blue heels. I always make my outfits work appropriate, so I wore my white linen H&M blazer overtop to give it more of a dressed up look for the office (which I have on in the first pic)

On a side note: I'm also so excited to finally get my hair done in a few days. My roots are screaming at me!!!

Oh, and I totally need a stand for my camera because I tried to use it yesterday and nothing is worse than striking a pose, and the camera falling over countless times. Any recommendations would help!!

Love always
Mel

Love this look, one of my favorite things to do is pair a basic tee with a more dressed up skirt.

Dressed but casual.

This look is great, especially if you're going for an afterwork drink (or two!).

The colour of that skirt really pops!

Hmm maybe...
