My closet and the fashion side of my brain are in that awkward phase where I want to wear a flannel with a vest and jeans topped off with a blanket scarf and riding boots- but it’s still a little too warm outside. It happens to me every year and every time the seasons change- PLEASE tell me I’m not the only one!?
And this year to get me through this transition period I’m pretty sure I’ve found the greatest shirt ever. It’s the perfect basic tee! And it’s budget friendly at only $19, comes in multiple fall-friendly colors AND is super duper soft! If you’ve been following me on Instagram you know that I’m a huge fan of a good striped shirt and this one is no exception! But the biggest perk is that it also comes in solid colors!
So the fit on this baby is amazing. It’s long enough to wear with your favorite leggings and is a bit oversized to help hide any food baby. And it’s comfortable. And soft. Those are seriously all the things I need in a t-shirt!
When I bought mine I sized up and decided to go with a small instead of an extra small. I didn’t know how it would be after washing (shrinking t-shirts are the WORST) and I wanted to play it safe. But I could have worn the XS for sure for a less roomy fit. This top has amazing side slits that are great for a front tuck or to tie, so the added room give you plenty of room to play around with. The material is light and is amazing for layering and doesn’t cause you to overheat (I wore it with a vest here). I wore them on our looooong drive from Texas to Maine and they were absolutely perfect for travel!
As you can see I’m clearly obsessed with this top (and for good reason!). I have two so far- but I’m pretty sure I need at least one in every color! Buy a few and witness the goodness for yourself!
