The word "summer" makes me think of swimming pools and family vacations, sunshine and bubbles, beaches and bathing suits, shorts and flip flops, tank tops and pink cheeks, bare toes and ice cream cones, romance and wonder.
There's something a little bit dramatic about summertime, but also something casual and laidback. That combination describes Tu for Tee, a mom-owned business that specializes in tanks and tees "with just the right amount of frill, modern, and fun."
You can choose between a tank, a short sleeve tee, or a long sleeve tee. Each shirt comes with an embroidered picture (choose between hearts and hawaiian flowers, ice cream cones and puppy dogs, butterflies and birthday cakes, and more!) and a small tutu stitched along the bottom. The tanks sell for $39.99, the short-sleeve tees sell for $44.99, and the long-sleeve tees sell for $49.99. Most shirts are available in size 6-12M all the way up to a kids size 8.
What can I say? These shirts are tutu cute! You can pick one up for yourself on the Tu for Tee website.
WIN IT! One winner will win a Tu for Tee shirt in her choice of style and size.

I'm glad they have size 8 in girls because I think my 7 year old daughter would love the purple butterfly design tee. We recently raised butterflies from caterpillers and she's a real nature lover. It would look so cute on her, and she's a girly girl so the tu-tu part would be perfect.

Tees That are TuTu Cute. My favorite is the Pink Crown Tank. Thanks for the giveaway.
The floppy dog is perfect for my niece who just turned 5. Loves dogs and loves pink!
I'd choose the white watermelon with short sleeves.
The Green Octoput short sleeve shirt is my favorite, but it was hard to choose because they'll all really cute.
I would choose the pink Floppy Dog tank, these are all so cute!
I love these! A practical substitution for the little one that insists on wearing her tutu and other dress up clothes out to the grocery store. These are so cute I may just be inspired to dust off my sewing machine and make something like this for my own little girl! My favorite... shoot they are all so darn cute, but I'll go with either the Octopus Green tank/Blue Tutu... or the Red Heart on Black tank/Red tutu. Can you tell I want them all for my little one! :)
Thanks for a fantastic giveaway!!!

This tee site was sweet,..I'm loving the Long Sleeve Thermal with the bear. I would need the tiniest you have! Thanx.
The pink crown tank.
I love the tee with the fire truck....it would make a cute picture with my daughter and her daddy (since he is a firefighter) I love them all!! I just wish they weren't sooooo expensive, I would buy them online. Thanks for the chance to win such a cute contest.
teal giraffe tee
Blue Owl. ;-) Thanks. For my friends baby boy. Short or long sleeve really doesn't matter but hope to win. They are adorable.
I would choose the spring owl tank, size 4. I've been eyeing these for a while! My daughter wants to wear a tutu e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e...but I can't say I'm a huge fan of the whole tutu as actual clothing thing. These seem like a happy medium as they're cutesy for her, but not too cheesy..and I do love owls!
Thank you so much for this great giveaway. I love the Octopus, Pink Short Sleeve Shirt with blue tutu. Thank you again and please enter me.
How adorable! I really love the light pink Octopus short sleeve tee
great tees. make a wonderful addition to my granddaughters clothes. thanks hope I win.
Ok they made it a very hard decision. I love both the Teal Giraffe and the Green Whale.
Oh my gosh! This is such a tough choice, I love them all. Adorable! If I'm forced to choose one favorite, it would be the strawberry tank tutu shirt. Thanks!!
the purple butterfly is cute
I've seen these before and think they are adorable (and clever). My favorites are the Octopus, Pink Short Sleeve Shirt with Blue Tutu and the Giraffe, Teal Tank with White Tutu. Both are sooo cute!
This is my favorite:
Brown and cream gingham ribbon trims the light pink tulle
I love the Teal Giraffe tank top style. These "shirts" are so much fun, and while every little girl loves a tutu, this might be one my daughter could actually wear out of the house!!
I like the Blue Cake
Blue cake- I think these are much more practical then a seperate skirt- at least for our skinny mini neighbors daughter!
These are brilliant!
I think I'm liking the black tank with the skull on it. It's original, and I plan on making matching bows for outfits like this!!
I would also buy the little boy tank like this, so that my best friends son (who will be 6 months younger than my baby girl) can wear it when they are both out together!
White Bunny, Lavender Shirt, White Tutu
What sweet little tops! Almost makes me wish they had mommy sizes ;) And how cool that its a mom business! I'm diggin' the green octopus (in tank or t. I just love green for a change!) or the icecream cone. You're right theres something about those icons of summer that make me smile. ...Like icecream melting faster than you can eat it :)
What a great idea! If I won, I would get the long-sleeve black dog shirt since my daughter loves dogs (and loves to make messes on her clothes, too!)
Thanks for the giveaway!
what a clever concept for clothes... I have never seen this style before. i love the tank whale, since my daughter madeleine loves the ocean, although she has never seen a real whale, she sure loves going in the whale on the storybook land ride at disneland...
wow, my little girl would love these! I think I like the green octopus best, but they are all so cute! what a great idea :)
I would choose the purple butterfly style. These are just too cute.
Oh my goodness, do these come in my size? I want one for me and one for each girl. If I have to choose, I'd say the Pink Butterfly tank in a size 4. I hate making these decisions (but I love having the opportunity to see the stuff and hopefully win it, don't get me wrong!). Thanks! gumbi1313 at msn dot com
These are so sweet, I think I would pick the Octopus, Pink Short Sleeve Shirt with Blue Tutu, or maybe the blue octopus is long sleeve.
too cute!! ella likes the pink crown!! thanks so much!!
These are adorable! My favorite is the short sleeve Light Pink Octopus.
Love the light blue tank with red heart and red tutu!! cute!!!
