Hi! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. :)
This week is going to be fun! Each day, we’ll be looking at a new way to style this silk tee by Elizabeth Suzann.
(I’m probably going to end up gushing about Elizabeth Suzann a few times, so before we jump in, I want you to know this week’s posts are not sponsored. I just really love this tee and want to share it with you.)
ES has a cult following for good reason — she runs a fully transparent, responsible clothing company in Nashville, TN. Her pieces look amazing paired together and that’s how lots of people wear them — think flowy tops paired with silky wide leg pants, like this.
But … that style that doesn’t feel entirely me. So I’ve been having fun coming up with different ways to style my ES top with more mainstream pieces.
First up, overalls!
I’m not going to lie — I was a bit skeptical of pairing overalls with this voluminous tee. But, safe to say it worked! Color me surprised. :)
CREATE A NEW SHAPE WITH OVERALLS | This tee usually has a boxy shape but, tucked into overalls, it takes on a whole new silhouette. The overalls defines my waist a little more and emphasizes the loose sleeves.
DRESS FOR COMFORT | We’re in ultimate comfort territory here, because of two things. First, silk feels delicious on the skin. Second, overalls have zero pinching at the waist because there’s no button-fly situation.
KEEP IT CASUAL | I like wearing overalls with a casual vibe, instead of trying to dress them up with fancier shoes. So here, I paired them with simple flip flops — perfect for running errands during the daytime. But, if I wanted a different vibe, clog sandals would work like a charm, too.

There you have it!
Because this voluminous top worked so well with overalls, it’s got me itching to try this proportion again — perhaps with my Madewell central shirt? I think it could work.
So tell me, what do you think of the overalls + voluminous tee thing? Are you as surprised as I was or have you already worn something like this?
See you tomorrow for part 2!
