In my need for new basic tees I discovered Mary Kate and Ashley Olsens new line of "affordable" tee shirts, Stylemint. I had a discount coupon to try them and I was pleasantly surprised. They are really soft and a little more dressy than my usual Target and American Apparel tees. The fit is really good I just wish they were a little longer to cover my old butt.

This is my favorite graphic tee of the bunch. The color is a good athletic grey and the crew neck is not too high, just low enough to see some collar bone. And the logo " Almost not crazy" well my kids will tell you is almost true.

It works well with the usual day/casual look but also to funk up a dinner with the hubby look.

This is the low v-neck Abbot Kinney in white. Nice and slouchy but really low.

The Prince tee is a basic crew neck but they did the neck just low enough to give it a more feminine feel.

I'm also showing off my new favorite pants. I was looking for a Audrey Hepburn type black pant and found a perfect one at the Gap. Its the skinny crop pant. It feels like a big bandage of heavy spandex just holding everything in. soo comfortable! Anyway back to the tee review....

This is a longer scoop neck called the Michigan tee. It's cut longer on the sides and is a heavier cotton.

And if you are wondering about fit, I think they run small, at least around the chest area. I am wearing a 2 in all but the Michigan, above. If you are small chested then they will be more slouchy on you but I am a D cup.

This is the Abbot Kinney tee again but in a Cabernet color. I am loving this for fall.
