Vegan on the Weekend: Miscellaneous Weekend Tees

Where I live, it rained and rained during the week. Miraculously, it cleared for the weekend. So, yesterday, I ventured out for a walk and did a little browsing along the way. Of note, I stopped in Gap and Banana Republic. Gap is offering a 3-day only (June 5 - today) 25% off sale on dresses. No dresses struck me as particularly amazing, but I did really like Gap's cotton summer t-shirts, especially the dip-dyed ones (pictured left in the cocoa). The shirt comes in a variety of faded colors, including gray, blue, and, my favorite, purple. The t-shirts are on sale -- 2 for $30. Find them here and here online, though there is much better selection in-store.

Banana Republic also is holding a summer dress event -- all summer dress $98 and under -- sale ends today. Again, nothing struck me as particularly amazing. Though, I did enjoy the pleated flutter-sleeve top (pictured right in the "nepal green"). The top also comes in a "deep pink." I think the top would look great with jeans for a more dressy-casual look on the weekend; it also might look good under a suit for work. Made from rayon and lyocell; $39.

While on the subject of weekend t-shirts and tops, I've been meaning to highlight Gaiam's "thoughtful tees." Each t-shirt has a "message that makes a difference" and ten percent of net sales from every thoughtful t-shirt goes directly to select nonprofits. The shirts come in a variety of colors with either long ($28) or short ($20) sleeves. They are all made from 100% organic cotton. My favorite is the "have a namaste" short sleeve tee in black (pictured). Find them all here.
