Long-sleeve tees in white, black, or navy are a year-round priority in my wardrobe. I wear them often under jackets or with the sleeves pushed up in warm weather. So, I’m always happy to find high-quality white cotton tees with a slight scoop neck.
The tee I am wearing is here; unfortunately, it is not available in white at this time, but may be back in stock soon. Similar white jeans are here. The denim jacket is old from Talbots, but here is a similar style. Similar suede booties are here. A similar bag is here. Before I consider wearing white jeans or suede footwear, I always check the weather. Sunday promised no puddles or slush.
I often reach for my freshwater pearl lariat necklace since it is the perfect choice with smart-casual looks. I found it here. (Use the code SAS10 for $10 off any one item at Beauty in Stone Jewelry.) The beautiful watch is here. I’m also wearing my favorite no-show socks found here. I would never wear a tee without my favorite bra here.
Thankfully, Mr. Mickey agreed to share his photo. He looked so sharp in his navy camelhair blazer that is more than twenty years old. A silk pocket square adds a touch of elegance to any blazer. The look began with a navy long sleeve tee, so he is also a fan of soft, comfortable first layers. Next came a blue and white dress shirt, topped with a blue half-zip sweater vest and a burgundy cashmere scarf. Most items are by Polo Ralph Lauren. We spent Sunday with family and friends and then stopped for takeout vegetarian food.
Your comments and questions lead to some helpful conversations. Thank you to blog follower Prue Batten for asking me to share the best tees.
One short sleeve option is by Everlane here. It has a relaxed fit and is made from 100% organic cotton. It isn’t so long that it hugs the tummy or the backside. Here is another style, and here is another option for short sleeve tees.
I avoid short sleeve tops since they create a line that brings too much attention to the bust. Additionally, if you layer over them, the sleeve always shows through or causes lumps and lines under the jacket’s sleeves.
The best long sleeve tee I have in my collection is here. The fabric is not see-through, and I wear them year round. Here is another option for long sleeve tees. You will find lots of choices for essential wardrobe items here. I am also pleased with the long sleeve tees I purchased here and here.
I have the three-quarter sleeve tees (found here) and I wear them often with ankle jeans in warm weather. Shopping links on this site may allow me to earn a small commission at no additional cost to you.

Food Impromptu found here produces high-quality cooking videos that are easy to follow and a pleasure to watch. I learned more about prepping ingredients for various meals through the week from Lisa here. A recent cookbook purchase is ‘Forks Over Knives’ here.
