Free People tee (on sale!); Blank nyc ripped jeans; Matisse fringe boots; Baublebar statement necklace; Stella and Dot engravable necklace; Old Navy sunglasses (similar.)
It literally pains me that I couldn’t and the perfect tee at Target and Old Navy. Believe me, I’ve tried! I buy the $5 options about twenty times over and I get rid of them just as fast. They are often too short, too tight, too loose, have a weird neckline, the sleeves fit weird… I could go on and on. I’ve tried sizing up for the loose fit I like, but I compromise fit where I need it and it looks sloppy. I’m the type of person that likes to find exactly what I want at the lowest price point possible. Yet I’m also trying to get more quality items in my closet that stand the test of time. These two goals are obviously the opposite of each other, ha. SO I save with some things and splurge on others. Shoes are often a save for me (Target has the best knock offs), yet my Sam Edelman Petty boots get the most use out of any shoe in my closet. The cost per wear on those things are next to nothing at this point. I digress.
What I’m getting at here (there’s a point!), is that sometimes you have to splurge to get exactly what you are looking for. If I add up the price of all those sub par tee shirts I’ve bought and discarded over the years I could have bought three of these shirts. Seriously. I love the fit of this tee! It is slightly belled at the bottom, with the perfect vee neck (not too low, not too high), and the sleeve are the best length. I will wear this shirt to threads, I know it, and buy another one the second this one wears out. I’m a huge fan of having awesome basics, those go to items that you can turn to quickly and make look good in an instant. Toss on a tee and jeans, a fun statement necklace and cute boots. That’s it, you’re done! I love having easy options to look great in a hurry. I’m a mama of two who has three part time jobs and a life and I like to look nice. This tee is a small, yet easy way to accomplish that. I’m in love.
