WHY I LOVE COTTON, LONGER-SLEEVE STRIPED TEES
It’s fairly certain that if something is striped (with a color stripe and white stripe), I will probably like it, and I don’t just mean clothing. I love striped walls, pillows, sofas, umbrellas, chairs, bed sheets, frames, mugs, pens, binders, desk accessories, and more.
I especially love cotton, longer-sleeve, color-and-white striped tees. Because they’re cotton, they work year round in most weather (just add layers in the winter); and because of the sleeve length, they make me look just a little bit more put together than a short-sleeve tee.
I’ve had this cotton three-quarter sleeve tee for about two years and am still crazy about it. So much so, actually, that I’ve been known to wear it for hours outside on even a hot day–which was the case when I met CSG* for lunch at The French Brasserie Rustique on Fifth Avenue South.
Now, it wasn’t the weather we’re having right now–the 90s with steam-shower humidity–but it was in the upper 80s and very humid. Because of the cotton, I was comfortable; and it was striped, so I was happy.
We were under umbrellas, surrounded by climbing bougainvillea and sunny flower beds. The patio was so pretty!
Not to be outshined, our salads, too, were beautiful–and delicious. (See their current menu.)
To view the restaurant and our meals (as well as my nerve-wracking modeling stint in the middle of the patio), see my video at the bottom of this page.
If you’re interested in finding a longer-sleeve striped tee yourself—even an adorable turtle neck–I uncovered quite a few on line. Scroll down the page to see them.
