Bananas for the Annalise Tee

This is a fun little tee from Banana Republic - per my receipt, it's the Annalise ??? tee, but I can't find it online. So maybe it's store only? And that "???" is there because I actually can't find the receipt right now - but it was, I believe, about $45. I got it with the Gap/ON/BR F&F 30%, so I actually paid about $33 or so.

Apologies for the *total* lack of details, but I still wanted to share. I got this tee less than 2 weeks ago at BR so it should still be around (and I've already worn it twice, so yes - love it). I wore it to JC last Friday and when my fave SA saw it, she swore to go get one at her break. ("What? I can wear it on the weekends.")

Size-wise, I got an M. As you can see, there is still some room in it and it's not supertight, so size down. The fabric is thin, but not sheer. (a nice change from so many super sheer JC tees, to be honest.) I love love love the necklace design on the tee - so fun - and the necklaces themselves would be so me, so it really fits. In case you couldn't tell since the pic isn't front on, the design is printed - there's no texture. That could be good or bad, but I'll take it as good because (a) less expensive (b) totally machine washable *and* dryable, and (c) fits under any top layer, even just another tee.

I realize you can't see so well from the pic, but the neckline is very pretty; it has an inlay of chiffon just inside the crewneck. And it's a crewneck, but not a super-tight crewneck. And can we go back to the design? One less accessory to add to your look!

This is a perfect tee for layering a jacket or cardi on top. I wore it both times with a black cashmere cardi and then a black scarf. Of course, in the pic here, you can't see the design at all since the scarf is tight because I was chilly, but when I wore it, you could see the desing on the tee just tine.

And then jeans and black flats. The first time I wore this was on the way home from the wedding weekend and let me just share - definitely pack the "boyfriend" jeans for the trip home vs. the skinnies - even if it's only an hour car ride. Obviously from the photo above, I wore the tee with skinnies the second time.

And here's my Polyvore from when I wore it the first time. Since the tee isn't online, I found a perfect sub for PV in the JC slub cotton crystal necklace tee.

Cute!!!

And, yeah...skinnies aren't so comfy for sitting at desks, in cars etc. for long periods of time. I agree!

cute tee and outfit. loveth the pic of you wearing the shawl. it's my favorite thing to toss on when it's not cold enough for a heavy coat. i love how it adds instant glamour to an outfit.

my word verification is unchair. guess it just confirms what you said about sitting for long periods of time in your minnies (smile)

Cute tee! I was out at my BR today and I didn't see it, but I did get the black silk version with the prentend necklace on it - I think it's a fun option for work :). I'll be sure to check in with my br for this tee...it's darling!!!

How chic! I have a similar wrap in grey- it's instant pick-er up-er.:)

Oops, I just realized it's not a wrap, it's a cardi with scarf.Was hard to tell from the pic, sorry!:)) Cute nevertheless.

OT: regarding the v-neck jeweled tee in your polyvore shot, has anyone who tried this on had the strange feeling that two of the screened "jewels" give the impression of oh, how do I say this...busom headlights? That is to say, at least two of the tees I tried had the two screened jewels right over the girls almost precisely over the ahem n part of the gals. Can't ask DH. He'll just roll his eyes and ask why I'm getting another tee. Thx.
