Remixing a red-striped tee with a blazer + boots

A quick reminder that I am co-hosting THREE holiday giveaways this month:

And don’t forget to enter the Billion Dollar Brows holiday giveaway (ends 12/20, THIS SUNDAY!) for a Best Sellers brow kit, which I reviewed here!

I realized that I had put together an impromptu remixing mini-series this week! Yesterday, I remixed the long green sweater from Tuesday’s post, and today, I remixed my new red-striped tee from J.Crew Factory. I wore this for a casual work day last week, using my “casual Friday” uniform of a blazer + jeans. My red-striped tee, along with my red bubble earrings, made this go-to look a bit more festive and holiday-appropriate.

I am seriously loving this red-striped, boatneck tee. I have this same striped tee from the main J.Crew line in grey and soft pink, so this time, I tried the J.Crew Factory version, which I might like even better! It’s a thicker material and has similar special details of notched sides and a boatneck neckline. The main difference is that the factory version has long sleeves while the main version has three-quarter sleeves.

I’ve had this grey tweed blazer a long time, having bought it at a Smart Set store on a PEI trip in 2006. It comes with a skirt — you can see both pieces together in this post — but I love wearing each piece separately. This blazer still looks and fits great, and I love the seaming details on the front and back. A good blazer is a classic for a reason!
