Daily Outfits #36: Comfy Tees, Stripes, + My Favorite Travel Jewelry Organizer

Cute Summer Outfits

Well, I guess this is the summer outfit roundup of stripes, blues, and neutrals with a pop of color.  Haha!  I’ll work on wearing some more color, but most of my colorful shirts from last summer aren’t loose enough to pull up and nurse in, and my colored shorts don’t quite fit yet still.  I’d need to cut back on the amount of ice cream I eat to return to pre-pregnancy weight, and I’m just not ready to do that.  ?

Nonetheless, all these tees and tops are commmmmfffffyyyyyy and pretty inexpensive.  So read on!

About Daily Outfits

These are outfits I’ve been showing on Instagram (@puttingmetogether) and Facebook!  I post outfits on both of those channels that never make it to this blog apart from these roundups.  Often by the time I post them here the sales aren’t happening or the items have already sold out.  If you don’t currently follow on Instagram or Facebook, there are two ways you can see these outfits earlier:

  • The “Instagram Outfits” section of this blog – You can see outfits as they’re posted on Instagram.  It the righthand sidebar of this blog if viewing on desktop, or down at the bottom under “Instagram Outfits” if you’re viewing on mobile.  If you click those images, you can shop the outfits!
  • PMT Emails – I send these outfits in PMT Emails along with announcements for a new blog post.  I also share sale alerts and exclusive giveaways!  Subscribe HERE!  (NOTE: PMT Emails are NOT the same as the old RSS email subscription.  If you’re subscribed through RSS, switch your email subscription to PMT Emails because I share exclusive content through those emails.)  


SIZING INFO: I’m 5’6″ with a short torso and normally size S/M or 6/8.  Size 8.5 to 9 in shoes.


Yellow Peplum Top + Skinnies + Slides + White Jewelry

I’ve been a little obsessed with this peplum top lately because it’s sooooo soft! Plus it’s yellow.  If you’re not a fan of yellow, it comes in several solid colors and black/white stripes too!  It’s ON SALE for $23 in this yellow stripe, a solid teal, red, and beige HERE.  But it’s also available in black/white stripes, solid black, white, navy, and heather grey HERE for full price.

Striped Top + Black Jeans + Slides + Green Earrings + Cognac Bag
Neutrals with a pop !  That pop of color makes all the difference!  A striped top and black jeans is one of my fall basic combos, but I tried to make it summer appropriate with accessories like slides, a cutout crossbody bag, and colorful earrings.  Sometimes all you need is to tweak a few details!

Blue Maxi Dress + White Accesories

You’d think a maxi dress wouldn’t be good for chasing kids or running a lot of errands, but I actually love it! Because it’s longer, I never worry about exposing anything when I’m bending down. Plus, this one feels like pajamas! See it ON SALE in multiple colors HERE.  I’ve had this in black and a blue print for 3 years and finally caved and got this blue one–it’s just so pretty!

White Jeans + Ruffle Top + White Jewelry + Cognac Bag

LOVING this top with its cute little ruffled sleeves, hem, and back! The smaller ruffles are perfect–I can’t handle huge ones.  And it’s only $29! It’s sold out in many sizes, but see what you can catch HERE.

Shop for the Look:
Top: c/o Modcloth (exact– wearing size M)

Navy Tank + Striped Skirt + Yellow Slides

This tank is only $15 and is super soft, stretchy, and comfy. It’s got a fitted bust but flowy waist, making it flattering when tucked into a skirt but loosely fitted for a relaxed front tuck or knot.  Caveats: It wrinkles out of the wash, so you have to steam it.  Also, in *some* colors it may show lines of your bra, depending on your bra.  One added plus is that you can pull the neckline down to nurse.  Pulling down v-necks to nurse usually doesn’t work for me, but I can do it in this one.  If I can do it I think most people can also.  See it in tons of colors HERE

Top: c/o ModCloth (exact– wearing size M)
Skirt: J.Crew Factory (exact-wearing size S)

Jewelry Case for Traveling

My travel jewelry organizer is back in stock! (From my Tried & True Favorites Gift Guide.)  I love that it’s fairly large but still flat and somewhat compact. I also love that it has a big panel for earrings so it can hold all of my Nickel & Suede earrings!  And obviously that’s important because #addicted.     Other travel jewelry organizers only have one tiny little strip for earrings.  So 1) you can’t even hold that many, and 2) there isn’t any room for statement earrings–usually only studs or tiny earrings.  This one has a lot of holes for earrings, plus the panel is large!

I shared this in a video recently HERE.  And you can see the jewelry organizer in black, white, or grey HERE.

Jewelry Case: Amazon (exact)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (all size M)
Lip Gloss  // White Cork
London Tan Cutouts
