outfit post: The Boyfriend Tee

K.I.S.S: Keep It Simple, Sweetheart. Bella wears a basic black boyfriend T.
After spending a lovely vacation time with the boyfriend, I found it hard to see him go. To keep me from bursting into sentimental tears, said boyfriend gave me one of his T-shirts so I could think of him fondly when he was gone. With just the right amount of broken in, the Tee is super soft and comfy, and I've been wearing it for days on end, so I can feel close to the dude. While I'm not normally a T-shirt and jeans kinda girl, I thought I'd take a few pics on how I wore it yesterday. Simply paired with


Gold is in the Details: This magnificent textured metallic vintage belt adds shine and polish to any look.
with ear-rings, belted grey jeans, and some black boots, the Calvin Klein men's T-shirt made the best out of being a great wardrobe staple. To add a little "oomph" to what could easily be a plain jane look, I added my newest score from This & That Thrift: a textured gold-tone pair of ear-rings, made of heart and crosses (how '80's!) and my golden belt of goodness, a vintage stretch metallic belt consisting of metal scales + a big textured belt buckle. 

What do you think of the look? Is it me? The boyfriend Tee has got me rethinking my lack of a steady supply of wardrobe basics- simple functional pieces that can be worn in a variety of ways without overthinking the process. And it's got me definitely thinking sweetly about the boy. Now, if I can only get a few boyfriend Fred Perry cardigans out of it. 
Cat Lover not a Fighter: Georgie the Cat runs up for the picture and a petting.
Now Wearing: 
  • Calvin Klein, boyfriend's T-shirt c/o the boyfriend
  • Vintage '80's heart and cross ear-rings, This & That Thrift
  • Not-So-Skinny skinny jeans, Citizen's own
  • Vintage gold stretch metallic belt w/scales, thrifted
  • (not shown) Ahnu Embarcadero rain boots, c/o Ahnu

You look fantastic and I love how you spiced it up a bit! It would be interesting to know what your basics would consist of because your outfits are always so unique and different.

I think you look fantastic in jeans and a t-shirt - but then it is my uniform, I live in denim and jersey!

Kitty said...

Cardigans, LOL!!!!
the lipstick looks awesome with this combo Bella :)

M.J said...

I would've never thought you weren't a Tee and jeans kinda girl because you wear it so well! I always have basics in my closet for those lazy days! :)

Lissy said...

Some days a T and jeans is all you need. You wear it well!

Bella, you've never looked more radiant! When a woman looks like a STAH in jeans and her boyfriend's t-shirt....it's LOVE! Hugs to you! ~Serene

Beautiful! Isn't it amazing how some people just wear jeans and a T-shirt, while others WEAR jeans and a T-shirt? It's all in the details, and you nailed it.

I have one guy's t-shirt in my closet also, it belongs to my "friendboy"..;) I miss him so when he's not around!

DeniseAngela said...

I think it is you & looks great....sometimes simple is made more special by a garment that has meaning!

Zee said...

This is a good look on you. It screams K.I.S.S with an edge. Your haircut just tops it off. Tomboy Chic!

The Closet Shopper said...

Here's what I think. You look incredible. I absolutely love this look on you. Those jeans are so great. I need them. The gold vintage belt is perfect to spice it up.

I'm sorry your dude left and you're sad. Sending you a big hug!

xo,
Tracy

Jenmarie said...

Yes, it's totally you! Basic t-shirts like these work on so many ladies especially when you have great sparkly accessories!

My ShinyBlackShoes said...

Mik said...

You make the shirt and jeans look good.. that's what matters.

This is a great look on you. I only WISH I could pull this off 1/2 as well as you.

Sasha said...

Definitely a casual but awesome look. And there's definitely still some Bella Q in it, what with the always fab accessories. The tee also looks incredibly soft!

Heather Fonseca said...

Bella you look fantastic in a t-shirt and jeans! I love the gold belt and earrings. They make a simple outfit sparkle.

Makes me want to wear a t-shirt and jeans on my blog too. (Seriously it's what I wear most of the time anyway!)

Polka Princess said...

Awwwwwwww.....that's so sweet of your boy to leave you the tee! I bet you don't want to take it off! ;)

I think you've worn the denim & tee look perfectly....LOVE the gold belt...that's such a Bella touch! <3

Kirstin Marie said...

Ife' said...

Oh boy! this look is pretty magnificent. It's so 90's minimalist chic. (in a non-fashion-blogger-cliche kinda way) LOL!!!

The earrings are fantastic, and I kinda wanna steal your belt!

(p.s. I know what I'll be buying on my next trip to Target. A black crew neck tee from the men's section)

THE-LOUDMOUTH said...

Wish I could look this great in a tee! And your hair is amazing...

Terri said...

Of all the things I've swiped out of my husbands closet (tights, trousers, shirts, sweaters), he would absolutely KNOW if I took a black tee. That is a staple and knowing my luck, I'd make off with his "best" one. What a great reminder of the fella.

Miss Peregrin said...

You look perfect in jeans & a tee! I love the styling. Your jeans & tee look casual, but elegant rather than sloppy.

jesse.anne.o said...

I really like this - it's not *just* a t-shirt and jeans so while it's a wardrobe basic, you've made it not so basic (which is something I struggle with).

Kimberlee Van Der Wall said...

I like this look on you! I think you can still be chic and casual.

Susan Tiner said...

Sorry to hear you're missing your beau, but you look great in his tee and your jeans and belt.

I see that your furry friend likes some camera action :).

any2ndnow.com said...

I always love your adventures in pattern mixing and the unexpected, but I also love how stripped down this looks, but still with touches of you mixed right in. Lovely!
