This striped tee was a must-have when I saw it on the shelf at Target. All my other striped clothing is more dressy, so having a navy and white striped casual tee was just what my closet was wanting. Then, the second time I wore it, I got a nice orange stain two or three stripes below the neckline. I tried stain remover and bleaching over and over, but to no avail. Finally I bought a white fabric marker and went at the stain with that last night, but because the shirt is actually slightly off-white, the white paint was too obvious.
I was bound and determined to not throw this shirt away (I know what you’re thinking — why not run to Target and buy another for $8? I tried. They were gone. Sad story), so this morning, on a whim, I tried it on backward. And just like that, it’s a boatneck beauty. And I love it.
Welcome back to my closet, striped tee. Welcome back.
