Mom's Must Have Summer Items Series - Week 2 WHITE TEE.

Hello everyone TGIF. This is my last Friday here in Albania for a long while, well until November at least. Vivian and I will be flying to Michigan through Munich (Germany), in 5 days. So this is the second Friday where I have paired up with Agnes  from Vodka Infused Lemonade to style another Summer item of clothing that we think each Mom should own in her closet. =)

This second week we are doing a Plain White Tee. Of course, every woman should own a Plain White Tee, probably two: a V-neck and either a Scoop-neck or a Crew-neck. I could have styled a More Classic Plain White Tee here, today, like a V-neck, but I took a different approach and styled a Tee I had been neglecting, a Scoop-neck, in a longer/Tunic style with a peek-a-boo back detail tied like a Bow. 
In the Day Outfit, I am faking a Fitted, White Maxi Dress, pairing this Plain White Tee with a Tulle-Chiffon Skirt with a Big Ruffle on the hem. I wanted to be Girly and stay on the Pastel Color Palette so I chose Gold (Thong Sandals & Dainty Necklace) and a Pinkish-Coral (Belt with Flower Pin that I attached to it, Polka Dot Headband & Stud Earrings). In the Evening Outfit, I also belted the Tee but with a Bolder Belt that has its own Rose, added some Bright Blue Pants & Turquoise Peep-Toe Sandals. In this Outfit I went more Colorful with the Jewelry: Neon Bracelets, Coral Drop Earring & Blue Fire Ball Pendant matching the Pants perfectly. Also, when wearing this pair of Cobalt/Electric Blue Pants I thought of Agi since she wears this Color often and has many pieces in it. Once again I am wearing some New things purchased in June of this year. What do you think of these Outfits and the fact that I belted them? The Day or the Evening Look is your Favorite?
