2 DAys, 2 Gray Tees

Yep, 2 days, 2 gray tees, and can you believe it? Neither is the bf tissue tee (he was in the wash).

Monday - Fun day - volunteered in E's class, quick conference with M's teacher on teacher/class for next year, then home to walk Lucy and do a bit of work before meeting 3-Penny Princess in Rockville for some ice cream. Ice cream at 2:00 on a Monday afternoon, with the sun shining. As 3-PP said, she felt like she was playing hooky. Gifford's ice cream - yum! And it was fun to catch up since she couldn't make our mini-JCA outing Saturday night. Of course, I felt like a shlub in my tee & khakis next to her and her perfectly outfitted cardi, skirt & heels. But what can you do? I hid behind my sunglasses and had the blinding tennis ball-colored bag to distract any onlookers from my not-quite-up-to-par outfit.

Which was...J Crew ringspun silk applique critter tee this past winter, BR khakis, and the Isaac target bronze sandals. I would like to say a HUGE thank you to m&m'sMommy, who found the actual tee on Polyvore after I attempted to rig up a facsimile for PV. Thank you again!

Wearing Today-6/1/09
Wearing Today-6/1/09 by HeidiGblog featuring J Crew

Today - 2nd round! Not just of the gray tees, but of the filling replacements. We are now 4 down, 2 to go (next Thursday is the last). This round was much better since it was lower teeth. I did remember to painkiller-up when I got home, so I'm a little less mental right now than I was the last time.

I am wearing the J Crew Slub Cotton Raw-Edge Tee (#15329, $29.50, Heather Cloud is $19.99 in store) that I got Saturday night with the girls. Thank you to Summerilla, who steered me towards it. Or rather, came back to the dressing rooms saying "I can't believe I just paid full price for one of these and the gray ones are on sale for $19.99." So of course, I said "Go grab me an M and an L, please!!!"

I took an M in this tee - fit is similar to the boyfriend tissue tee. I love the detailing at the neck, it's very pretty. The tee would work well with just about any bottoms, and I would even put it with my black suit the next time I need to wear it. I think it's quite nice for under jackets and cardis, too. The length is on the longer side, but not too long. And it's very soft and cozy. I highly recommend.

With the raw edge tee, I just wore white jeans, my Clarks pink peep toes, and my gray BR merino cardi (like the Michelle) - even though it was 80 degrees outside, because the dentist's office is chilly and I was craving warmth and coziness.

Polyvore set for today:

It was so much fun to see you! I enjoyed our ice cream break. We should do that more often! I thought you looked like your always superfly-mom self! I loved that canvas tote, BTW - I meant to tell you yesterday. Sorry I was so dressed up. Mom and I were out and about taking care of biz and pleasure. Next time, I'll wear something more cazh...

Enjoy the beautiful week!

Kathy said...

You looked great, Heidi! You are always dressed appropriatly for the situation! Cute picture of Lucy!

HeidiG said...

3-PP - thanks, I will try to live up to the superfly-mom label! It was fun!!

mrs.anketell - good luck getting it; I think you'll really enjoy it!

Kathy - thank you! You are so kind! Lucy is pretty cute, huh? She lost 2 baby teeth today.

MMM said...

You're outfits look great! I always love your style because it so much like mine! :)

I missed the tee for $19.99 too but I will definitely check 'em out next time I'm there!

Btw, no need to thank me for *finding* the polyvore tee- I know how frustrating it is to *find* items on there that you KNOW are on there! But you are very welcome! Now you can make lots more sets w/ it (hint) ;-) !

Summerilla said...

You look great in the gray raw edge tee. I need to wear mine soon and it looks fabulous with the white bottoms. I actually pulled my white boot cuts out of the closet on sunday and hope to wear them this week sometime - I just have to stop worrying about getting them dirty.

But seriously I am just so amazed at how quickly things go on sale sometimes at J.Crew. It's always my luck though that it's past the 7 day mark or they just want to be mean and deny me the price adjustment.

Anyways - super cute outfits and like always you look beautiful! And hello cutie-pie Lucy!

HeidiG said...

MMM - thank you! And PV - I know, much as I love PV, it just kills me sometimes! Will definitely make more sets now that I have it. I think I should just start randomly searching through people's items to fill out my closet!

Summerilla - thank you! I am looking forward to pairing the tee with my Esplanade skirt when I get it! Now I just need to track down the weathered stone.

monogramgirl said...

I love both of these looks on you. You are always so put together. I am jealous. Love the ideas.

Lissa said...

So! I just bought the strapless grey dress which fades to cream from Jcrew and I totally feel like I can participate in this conversation. Except! I know that everyone reading this will know what the name of the dress is. But still, I'm coming along, right? :)

Drewablank said...

You always look oh-so-elegant, Heidi. You really do. :) Even if in just a tee and khakis!

Yay for Lucy growing up to be a big girl!

Jemma Ruby said...

heidi, those look fantastic on you!! I always try too hard with tees- simple and elegant is the way to go!

HeidiG said...

monogramgirl, Drewablank & Jemma Ruby - thank you! such kind words, I really appreciate them!

Lissa - oooh, that's the ombre Lorelei dress - I bet it is just gorgeous on you!

Lady Buttons said...

HeidiG, your outfits are divine! I am loving those Clark peep toe flats, so cute! Lucy is adorbs! I am sure she and Della would be fast friends. :)

HeidiG said...

Lady Buttons - thank you! I am quite sure that Lucy & Della would have a lot of fun - there is nothing Lucy likes more than other puppies to play with, and she loves all dogs - big, small, and everything in between.

KatyO. said...

I love the raw-edge tee on you! (It looked like poop on me, so I'm jealous!)

Stephanie said...

Great outfits. I've never noticed either tee- very cute! Your JCA get together sounded so fun!

gigiofca said...

I love the tee w/the flower (pic1). It's so cute w/the khakis!

A Bigger Closet said...

The grey tees look lovely on you Heidi, and perfect for spring with the way you've paired them with light colored pants!

Lucy is adorable! :)

HeidiG said...

KatyO - yeah, but didn't you get the dressy jersey cinched dress? that looks good on pretty much everyone but me. :)

Stephanie - thank you, it was fun - so nice to shop with others who appreciate, you know?

Gigi & A Bigger Closet - thank you!!
