13 Great T-Shirts for Summer

July 17, 2018

Does anything really beat a good t-shirt in the summer? I mean, isn’t that the most prevalent go-to during these hot months? Especially when we’re looking for something to pair with our favorite denim shorts or skirt? That’s why I thought it might be a good idea to gather some of the cute tees I’ve noticed here and there into one blog post. This list of 13 t-shirts includes some that are colorful and ladylike, some that say cute or poignant things and some that feature embroidery or even beading. I like them for a variety of reasons, and I think you might, too.

These t-shirts span the full range of prices, too. And some may be on sale when this post goes up. Or, quite honestly, some may be gone. Hmm. That’s because I’m scheduling this post ahead of time so that it will go up while I’m on vacation. But my bet is that at least some of these t-shirts are still available for the picking and even discounted. Check them out and see.

Pineapples are huge this summer. And I especially like that this Malibu punch t-shirt from Chico’s features the symbol of hospitality in gold print. And the pineapples are all over the shirt, too. Front and back, whereas many similar shirts are decorated only on the front. When I wrote this post, this shirt was marked down considerably. You can check to see if it still is here.

This embroidered cactus tee may look white, but it is in fact more of an oatmeal color. It’s a little pricier option from Anthropologie, but when I scheduled this post it was marked down 50%. You can check it out here.

I came across this t-shirt from Crazy Cool Threads one day as I was browsing Instagram. I absolutely love the Christian pop song by Zach Williams by the same title as is on the shirt, “Fear is a Liar.” I kind of think we all need a shirt that reminds us of the paralyzing grip of fear. And we need to be reminded, too, that God’s love cast out all fear. Hmm.

Pretty poppies. I love poppies. This simple graphic v-neck t-shirt is available at Kohl’s for just $6.79 right now. Wowza!

One of my favorite things to do each summer is stand over my kitchen sink and pit fresh cherries and pop them in my mouth, juice running down my arm, one after another. How’s that for a visual!? Ha! Do you do anything like that? Well, this simple but pretty embroidered t-shirt from J.Crew has me longing for those cherries. And I just may be eating some in Oregon about now. *grin*

Okay. It’s true. I’ve fallen in love with pink flamingos. Y’all! That reminds me. One of the funniest lines I heard in the movie Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again! (which releases July 20th) was “you have the wisdom of a flamingo.” LOL! Followed by perplexed expressions of course! Well, I don’t know if flamingos are wise, but they are popular. And I love this pink flamingo t-shirt, also available at Kohl’s for just $6.79 right now.

I’ve shown this bicycle for two t-shirt a couple of times already. But I just think it has a lovely feminine silhouette, and who doesn’t like a double seat bicycle? And this t-shirt is marked down, too.

I just love the vibrant red in this floral t-shirt from Loft. It’s called Island Party. Don’t you just love that?

Also from Loft, this striped tank t-shirt just looks fresh and charming to me.

Ah, this shirt reminds me of that summer in Santorini, Greece. No, not really. I’ve never been there. But we all dream of going there, right? You know. Santorini is the frequently photographed little village in Greece famous for all the white buildings with blue roofs. Well, even if we don’t have memories of Santorini, we can wear the t-shirt.

Well, don’t you know this Arizona girl snatched up this embellished flowering cactus t-shirt with her Talbots gift card! The photo doesn’t really do it justice. The beading is charming. Oh, and that reminds me. We’re moving onto our second blooming season here in Arizona now that the monsoon rains have arrived. Indeed, flowering cactus!

Yep. More of those wise flamingos. Isn’t this khaki and pink flamingo t-shirt a cute variation on the theme? It’s another great embroidered tee from J.Crew.

Let’s see. We’ve had pineapples, a couple of flamingos and now palm trees. I think we’ve got all the tropical trends covered. But the reason I love this tee is because it would look great peeking out of a jacket or cardigan. It’s simple, but charming. You’ll find this embroidered palm tree t-shirt at Loft.

Blessed for My Day

Today may you abide in the center of God’s love. Jesus told His disciples that when we keep His commandments we abide in His love. I pray that as you walk through your day you consistently choose His way. May you be able to discern “what would Jesus do,” and may you always choose to follow His lead. And at the end of the day, despite the fact that you have drifted occasionally into doing your own thing – because we all do – may you know that you are still in the center of His love. Why? Because Jesus obeyed all the way to the cross. God bless you.

If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. ~ John 15:10 

Spread the love
xoxo, Kay
