I enjoy wearing comfortable, functional clothing, but I want to look acceptable and feel like myself even if I don’t have any plans for the day. In addition, I expect my everyday items to be easy to care for and long-lasting. Finally, those pieces should mix and match, so I avoid bright colors, memorable details, prints, patterns, and logos.
Who – Retiree, senior citizen, active woman 65+. What – Neatly dressed for comfort. Where – A look for working at home, going for a walk, the Post Office, and the grocery store. When – I wore this on a sunny Tuesday when it was seventy-four degrees. Why – I was comfortable and felt confident even though I dressed very casually for the day.
The best collared tee I’ve found is here. (I bought a size medium.) I feel more confident in a top with a collar and three-quarter sleeves rather than short sleeves. I don’t enjoy showing my elbows. A round neck and short sleeves draw attention to the bust. Wide necklines show more of the neck area than I find comfortable. The length of this tee is perfect since I don’t want to tuck in tops worn without a third piece. The fabric isn’t see-through, and the quality of the material and construction is excellent.
I waited until I laundered this top to give my opinion in this post. No matter how great the item is when you first wear it, it isn’t a winner if it doesn’t hold up to a trip through the washer. All of my clothing gets washed in cold water. I removed the top from the dryer while still damp and hung it on a felt hanger to air dry. I steam ironed it to remove any wrinkles. There was no shrinkage, and it kept its shape. I’m so happy with it; I bought another white one and two navy ones.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last post. Since you mentioned food several times, I also snapped a photo of my salad. I topped fresh red romaine lettuce with a soft-boiled pasture-raised egg, sliced cherry tomatoes, black olives, celery, cucumbers, diagonally sliced heirloom carrot, avocado, quinoa, and lentils. I cook a cup of lentils and one cup of quinoa (separately) on Monday to top my salads for the next few days. I also sprinkled a pinch of kosher salt, nori, fresh ground black pepper, and hemp seeds. My dressing is always extra virgin olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar. The bowl is nine inches wide. On weekdays I eat two healthy meals and drink lots of water. On the weekend I enjoy small amounts of whatever I want.
The practice of decreasing the quantity and increasing the quality has benefited all areas of my life. I look for clothing that lasts and the freshest organic vegetables. I spend time with positive people, stop to pet dogs, and sit in the sunshine for a few minutes each day after my walk. Gratitude for simple things makes for a happy life.
