There are times when I gaze into my closet like it’s the great abyss. Just like there are times when I stare blankly at my computer screen with my fingers poised on the keyboard, but not a thing to type. The fact of the matter is, I tend to over complicate things. Overthink them. And so when I start to feel the sweat prickling on my skin as the stress sets in, I take a deep breath, and murmur to myself, “Keep it simple, stupid.” You see, when a women has a few staple pieces in her wardrobe, she can count on them like she can count on the rain after a blowout and her monthly visit from auntie Flo. By having a perfectly fitting pair of jeans, a fresh white t-shirt, crisp white blouse, and a gently destroyed pair of denim shorts, there is no occasion (except for black tie) that she cannot concur. Depending on the woman, event, and accessories, the most simple pieces, American classics, can take you from daytime down time to dinner, drinks, and possibly dancing.

Sealed with a K.I.S.S.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I could basically live my life in a t-shirt… a sexy t-shirt, of course. The more slouchy and see through the better. There’s something so basic and easy about putting on a t-shirt. It would almost be difficult to get it wrong. But alas, many of you have. Here’s a collection of some great t’s to sprinkle into your wardrobe. Perfect for lazy Saturday brunches or sexy Thursday nights out.
Kain Silk and Modal T-Shirt, $90
Rebel Yell Unruly V-Neck T, $36
Chaser LA Nirvana Raglan Slouch T-shirt, $65
Junk Food Vintage NFL Triblend Varsity T-shirt, $36
Torn by Ronny Kobo For the Mountain Mystical Horses V-neck, $88
Nation LTD Mississippi Burnout T, $102
So get comfy, and get sexy. You’re just t-ing yourself up for some serious attention.
I am a t-shirt junkie. I don’t mean like actual “t-shirts” I mean the kind of t-shirts that look “really cool” and you paid way too much money for. (I sometimes secretly believe I was a rocker in a past life).
One of my favorite brands of these overpriced t-shirts is Kain. They make really great loose fitting tees and tanks that are sheer and have a great drapey pocket. They only come in a few colors, but somehow, when you put on this oversized t-shirt, you still look incredibly sexy without trying too hard. Oh- and they’re really soft. Sounds perfect, right? Here’s the kicker: they are $85 a pop. Ouch!
So, brilliant discovery!!! Express makes nearly the exact same t-shirt and guess how much it costs? $24.50!!
Can you tell the difference?
And as usual… you’re welcome.
