in my white tee

for the longest time i've been on the hunt for the perfect short sleeve crew neck t-shirt.
not too thick, not too sheer. not a cap sleeve, or rolled up, or oversized. not boat neck or v neck. not cropped, not long. no pockets, no logos, no embellishments. not heather white, not textured white, not off white or cream. just a plain, white t-shirt.

recently, the olsen sisters started stylemint - a tshirt revolution, where the twins would design and style a new tshirt each month, retailing at $29.99. it's a great deal compared to their tees at The Row, but as i was perusing the site, i still didn't see anything close to the most basic of all basic tshirt i was looking for.

one day, i walked into Target and it dawned on me: THE BOYS SECTION. back in the day, sophia and i used to buy those packs of hanes/fruit of the loom t shirt packs and wore them with our CK jeans. they were cheap and fit so well. so i darted straight to the t shirt shelves and found me a Cherokee shirt (size medium). for $4.99. (right now they're on sale online for $2.48!!!) i tried it on and fell in love.

every girl needs a white t-shirt in her wardrobe. yes, it's simple. simple, and classic. pair it with some washed denim, a maxi skirt, leather leggings, or in my case today -- tucked into silk wide leg trousers, with the sleeves rolled up.
