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.

This latest Vlog of yours made me miss Naples and all its loveliness. You look lovely as always.
Hi, Sandy! How wonderful to hear from you! It’s a good thing you are not here right now. Irma has really got everyone concerned. Hope you and your family are safe and peaceful up north. Hugs ~ Janis
I love your videos and your vlogs, there are such an inspiration.
I noticed the white cover for your mobile (iPhone6?). Please let me know the brand and where you got it. I live in Denmark (Europe) and I thought I might be able to buy it online.
Thank you very much and look forward to seeing your next video.
Hi, Ann. I use a Pong phone case. It protects its user from radiation emitted by cell phones. Thank you so much for watching my videos and for leaving your comment!
Thank you for you reply. It sounds like a really good product, I will check the web site.
Have a wonderful day 🙂
Great look as always. With Fall quickly approaching in my part of the world it’s great to see an amazing Summery look. I love everything about it. :))
Hey, Brian! Thank you! I guess you all are starting to get really cool temperatures now, aren’t you? True fall weather. But I bet the changing leaves are gorgeous. Love the sound of them crunching beneath my boots and the smell of someone’s fireplace burning somewhere nearby….Hope you’re having a peaceful, sunny day. Cheers ~ Janis
Oh, I forgot to say, I have to send you a picture of my latest Tory’s flats. I love them but they’d look amazing on you.
I just found you on Youtube and I absolutely adore everything about you and your vlogs and blog!!! I am so happy, it is like I have a new friend!!
Hi, Cristina! I’m so happy you found me on Youtube and then took the time to come here and say hi! That’s so thoughtful of you!!! Hope you’re having a sweet and peaceful day wherever you are. We are facing Hurricane Irma right now. So things are a bit frantic! All the best to you ~ Janis
Does the lip gloss go into the creases around your lips? Just thought I’d ask before I purchased. I have trouble with that and need an honest opinion! Thanks so much!
