If you were to browse through my laundry basket, you’d find a handful of grey shirts that I wear on a regular basis. I don’t know why but it’s my favorite color/non-color to wear. I guess it’s easy? It can be casual but still look nice? Who could ever know.
I did buy this sweater from J.Crew Factory in fresh BERRY but ultimately returned it because it’s a little on the short side for me. But the color was refreshing! Perhaps a change is on the horizon.
The *perfect* grey tee is pretty hard to find believe it or not.
My wardrobe these days is pretty relaxed, but I wouldn’t call it overly-casual. I still put effort into what I’m wearing for the day so I don’t feel like a total bum. As I transition from maternity clothes to non-maternity clothes (that perhaps are nursing friendly too), loose, forgiving tops that are a little bit versatile are key.
I’d love to be able to wear a casual grey tee with black leggings and a vest for running around during the day, but then easily throw on jeans and flats to make it a little bit more “intentional” of an outfit.
I rounded up a few of my favorite grey tee’s that I found online. I bought the linen v-neck from Banana Republic on sale somewhat recently and have a few of the classic Madewell slub v-neck tee’s as well. I’m pretty modest in my clothing choices, so I hate a v-neck that goes too low and shows a bit of my camisole. I’ve found the Madewell tee’s to be the highest neckline, in case you look for that sort of thing too.
Target’s boyfriend v-necks are cheap ($9.00!) and if laundered with care could retain their shape nicely and be a staple in anyone’s wardrobe. Gap’s grey tee is going to be the most fitted, and the longest of the bunch is the tunic from ModCloth.
