The Perfect T


V-neck T: Victoria's Secret PINK - find HERE
Pants: American Eagle - similar HERE
Shoes: Sperry Bahama's - find HERE or HERE
Necklace: Nordstroms 










It seems like I'm always on the hunt for the perfect v-neck. I've had so many grey v-neck's over the past few years it's not even funny. It doesn't seem like I ever discover the imperfections of one until the 3rd wash, either.

Situation: I purchase the PERFECT fitting v-neck. Take it home, wear it once, all is well. Until...DUN DUN DUN..I wash it. After the first wash, I notice the neck is stretched out weirdly or the t has shrunken completley. The love affair is now shattered.

Situation 2: I purchase the PERFECT fitting v-neck. Take it home, wear it AND wash it once, all is well. Until... DUN DUN DUN...the second wash. After the second wash, I notice the t has stretched out and is ridiculously ill-fitting. The love affair is now shattered. The t is out.

Situation 3: I purchase the PERFECT fitting v-neck. Take it home, wear it, wash it, wear it, wash it, and all is well. Until.... DUN DUN DUN...the third wash. After the third wash, I notice the fabric of the t is balled up and worn looking. The love affair is shattered. Time to buy a new t.


This was my life (I know, I know first world problems), until I happened upon this baby at Victoria's Secret PINK. I wasn't sure it was true love until I wore it after the 3rd wash...and now the 4th and 5th as well and it has proven itself reliable and wonderfully perfect. What's better? At $17.50 (or 2/$28), this essential v-neck comes in a variety of colors.

Am I saying YES to this T? YES. Ah true love 

Do you have 3rd Wash problems? Or have you found the perfect T? Let me know!!


PS Just got a Twitter...SAY WHAT? Girl is way late at jumping on that bandwagon. Oh well...better late than never:]

Polkadots and Peach


Top: Forever21
Pants: Target (sister's :) )
Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita 'Onya' Platforms
Bracelets: Target, gifted, 'Cinema Americano' via Jewelmint
Ring: Old Navy








This peachy/coral color has been my all time favorite this summer (you can see me rocking it HEREHEREHERE and even HERE). You can bet I will definitely be trying to bring it into my fall wardrobe as much as possible. I adored these peach skinnies, borrowed from my little sisters closet, paired with this whimsy, layered polka dot top from forever 21. Of course I would add my favorite shoes (I won't even give you the links to all the posts in which I wear them...it's embarrassingly frequent) and some turquoise and gold arm candy to finish things off.

Tropicana


Skirt: Hollister Dress from 4 years ago
T-shirt: Old Navy - find HERE
Belt: Old Navy
Shoes: Target - find HERE
Bracelet: 'Cinema Americano' via Jewelmint 





 A trend I've been obsessing over this summer? Tropical prints. I'm a little late at jumping on this bandwagon as the blogosphere has been blowing up with Tropical goodness all season, but better late than never!

 I've been getting better at shopping in my own closet and have been bringing out so many oldies but goodies. This tropical print Hollister dress was my favorite 4 years ago, as I adored the print and comfy fit. I haven't worn this dress in probably 2 years and was excited to rediscover it this week. I liked the idea of putting a t over it and belting the ensemble. I decided to mix prints but stick to a similar color so the overall effect wasn't too obnoxious. Conclusion? I've found my new favorite tropical 'skirt'!

Sunburst


T-shirt: American Eagle - similar HERE and HERE
Peplum Skirt: Forever21
Necklace: Gift from boyfriend 
Ring: Forever21
Wedges: Target





I was instantly drawn to pairing this t-shirt with the peplum skirt as there is something about this color combination that I adore. It might sound cheesy, but it totally reminds me of a gorgeous summer sunset when the sky turns that unexpected orangey-pink tone you didn't think possible in nature. I paired it with a more subtle necklace and nude wedges to avoid distracting from the bold colors but added a bright cocktail ring for a finishing touch. Sloppy ponytails are my favorite summer hair style not just because they are easy, but also because I am in dire need of a haircut and my appointment is a ways out :] Thank you, ponytail.

Indian Summer


Top: American Eagle
Skirt: Nordstroms
Sandals: Target
Necklace: Forever21
Earrings: Sheinside - adore THESE
Bracelets: Beaded (gifted) & Turquoise 'Zuni' Bracelet via Jewelmint
Ring: Old Navy










 August is flying by and I'm savoring every minute of the warmth. It's been ridiculously hot for late August, which has me crossing my fingers for an Indian Summer. By now, you all know that I am maxi obsessed and I'm so excited that this skirt is the perfect summer to fall transition piece. I will definitely be wearing this in the fall with boots and a chambray, but decided to pair it with a crisp, white crop top and native inspired jewelry for a sweltering August day.
