Jeans and t-shirt

I went out for a Japanese lunch today with a friend. I cannot get enough of Japanese food right now, so delicious. Buuut, I really need to break this expensive habit of eating out.

Here's a really casual outfit, but I though the details added to it well. Jeans and a t-shirt are casual outfit staples, I'm not even going to try and pretend I don't wear them.


T-shirt - American Apparel unisex size XL
Jeans - Old Navy size 18
Necklace - Spring
Shoes - Payless size 11
Purse - the Tin Box

After lunch, we popped into Flirt Cupcakes, where I tried their cookies and cream cupcake for the first time. It was incredibly delicious, there was even an Oreo cookie baked in!


Trying to pick out a top today, I realised I don't have a lot of tops that I can wear with jeans. I have mini-dresses to wear with tights or leggings, shirts that are too short to wear tucked into high-waisted skirts, and tees that should probably stay in the house. Because of my long torso and large tummy, I need shirts with at least a 27" length, preferably closer to 29." I feel too old for a lot of graphic tees, and to young for button-up shirts. I guess what I am looking for then is basic, but cute, knit tops. Here a few I’d love to add to my closet, all from Lands’ End.



  1. I was totally thinking about this earlier, how everyone can rock jeans and a tee in their own individual stylish way.
    And how it doean't have to be the outfit you feel guilty or lazy for wearing.

    You look completely awesome and it's a lovely thing to see : )

    also that cupcake looks delish.

  2. hey look its the shoes and necklace from last post, totally hot look

  3. I have the same problems with tops. Ever since I stopped obsessing over American Eagle I've been short on shirts that I can wear with jeans. It's worse now that it's summer because every time I try to buy a shirt from forever 21 I remember that I can get a dress from Forever21 for the same price, lol.
    Love the outfit btw, especially the necklace.

  4. Tops are always a nightmare for me - always too short or too long...maybe that's why I wear so many dresses.

    I love cupcakes and it's very hard to get a decent cupcake in Asia (There's not even an oven in my apartment or room to have an oven!) so I was seriously drooling over that Oreo cupcake!!


  5. @Morgaine, that's so true. There's no shame in jeans and a tee, and it lets the small details of your personal style shine through. Thanks!

    @Katie, thank you! and I couldn't wait to wear them out, I'm always like that with new stuff

    @Michaniya Cunningham, I totally know what you mean. When I go to thrift stores, it's like all of the dresses are cute as heck, and all of the shirts are terrible.

    @Trees, I totally feel you! I don't want to wear shirts that are *too* long, then I feel sloppy, but I worry about my tummy peaking out. Ugh, I hope I can find the perfect shirt soon.
    Oh man, I couldn't imagine living without an oven. Sending tasty cupcake vibes your way. :)

  6. girl, you MUST wear jeans everyday, you look amazing
