The One Item Every Closet Needs


Jeans: Similar (same brand & style)// T-Shirt: Madewell–  via Nordstrom // Shoes: Old; Similar // Bag: Nordstrom  // Watch: Christian Paul c/o

My go-to for casual days is  jeans/shorts and a white t-shirt.  Sure, you may have some colored t-shirts but everyone needs to have AT LEAST one good white tee.  I’m sure you all own one and if you’re like me you wear the heck out of it!  The hard part isn’t knowing you need one, it’s finding the one that fits the best.  I know, I know…how hard could it be to find a basic white tee?  I thought it was quite easy for years.  I bought every white t-shirt I came across (because you can never have too many) but they always shrunk, didn’t lay right, or became ‘pilly’ after a few washes.  Side note: I HATE WHEN CLOTHES/BLANKETS START TO PILL.  I know pilly is not a word, mostly because it took me five attempts to type it without autocorrect changing it to ‘silly’, but I use it frequently because all pilled items MUST GO.

Anyways, it’s with great pride that I announce the debut of the best white tee my closet has ever seen/my body has ever worn. It has the perfect v-neck, not to deep and not too shallow, and the overall fit is just right.  It is a relaxed fit but not at all sloppy-looking.  This is the one item that I’ll willingly do laundry for so that I can wear it again and again and again.  Random fact- growing up my mom did laundry DAILY so I never knew what it felt like to want to wear something but not be able to because it was still in the laundry basket.  Heck, I probably didn’t even need a laundry basket. Thanks, Momma.

Happy Friday!  It’s time for jorts and…you guessed it, my beloved white t-shirt.

    White tees are my FAVORITE! But you’re right, you can’t just wear any white tee – it has to be the perfect fit and I’m always on the lookout! Loved this post!
