IT’S MUST HAVE TIME!!!!!
It’s been WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY too long since I’ve named one, so I’m EXTRA excited!
I named a statement pendant necklace a MUST HAVE in November of 2015.
I will be naming it a MUST HAVE.
This is my pledge to you. 😉
So…about the new MUST HAVE…
MUST HAVE of 2016.
Here I am wearing it in the new olive (with white jeans) and the legion blue (with leggings).
So to be perfectly honest, when I ordered the olive a couple of weeks ago, I still wasn’t quite sure about it. It just seemed kind of “eh” to me.
When it arrived, I tried it on immediately and took the below pictures the week of Christmas.
I fell in love on the spot.
Even though I wasn’t wearing make-up and my hair hadn’t seen a brush in 2 days.
Now THAT’S a good shirt.
One more thing, I’m not wearing a cami in the picture, but I will (my favorite cami here..and it’s only $12) just because the slit is kind of low. I ordered up in the cami and wear a medium.
So I took the above pics, and then I hopped online and promptly ordered the black, the legion blue (turquoise) , and the tawny port (wine) color.
It took me all of 2.3 seconds to know I wanted more.
I MEAN $25.80 a shirt!!!!!!!! I couldn’t resist.
GO BIG OR GO HOME.
I put the above picture on a blog post as well, and I had a reader comment that she wore her olive tee with white jeans, cognac boots, and gold jewelry.
I thought that sounded so cute, so I did too!
Here I am wearing it out and long and all tunic-ish! 😉

leather watch / drusy bracelet / pyrite bracelet
But as you can see, it also looks great with a half tuck!

I also love how it looks with flares, as you can see in the next picture.
I’m looking forward to pairing my black top with my flare jeans and my turquoise pendant necklace.
And here’s another huge pro for this top:
it looks great with leggings too!

Sooooooooooooo many of you RAVED about it (including Nikki) :), that I finally caved.
Some say they ordered a size down, and I guess it’s possible that an x-small would have fit me as well, but I liked how the small fit me…especially because I wanted to be able to wear it with leggings.
I have it in 4 colors & I’ve washed & dried all of them with no problems. – Amy Fox
I have the olive and teal. And a four year old. Cold wash, shout spray, and hang dry several times, still look great. – Bethany D.
And in the interest of full disclosure, I ordered THIS one last night when I was finishing this post up.
BECAUSE WHY THE HECK NOT.
Click HERE for all of the solids and prints available.
When I initially put the shirt on facebook, lots of you went on and on about it, and several of you sent in pictures of yourselves in the top!
It really does look great on everybody styled lots of different ways!
I’m telling you, THIS TOP is without a doubt a PTMT MUST HAVE.
Even if you are unsure about it (just like I was!), I strongly suggest you just give it a try.
I’m pretty confident that you will love it.
And if you don’t, with free shipping and free returns, there is ZERO risk.
If you don’t like it, just attach the free return shipping label (that will be included in your package), and send it back.
And totally worth the “risk”.
And a HUGE thank you to Nikki for letting me share “her” shirt with the world. 🙂
Take as long as you need to soak in the adorableness (it’s a word) of her family.
So here we are starting 2016 with a new MUST HAVE!
I’m hoping this year brings several new ones!
See y’all back here on Wednesday…for a BACHELOR RECAP!
I bought the black shirt during the anniversary sale. When you posted other colors marked down recently, I ordered the olive and wine which should arrive today. Great shirt at a great price. I like it best with boyfriend jeans and the front just tucked in at the waist (like the gal in the flare jeans is wearing it). Tempted by the black/white print…
Mix and Match Mama says
I have this shirt in three colors. It is PERFECT! I am so excited that you're going to do more Must Haves in 2016! They're my favorite!!
Erika Slaughter says
When you told me to, a few days ago I ordered two. Because I trust you like that. :). The box is in my closet with the goods. I just haven't tried them on yet. Excited to rip it open after this post!! Wahoo for Must Haves!!!
cookies and cups says
Ok, I am buying it…it wouldn't have been one I would have ordered without a little nudge, but I'm doing it! In olive green!! Hope more colors get restocked 🙂
Yes ma'am!! Love this shirt!! It is so comfy and cute!!
I ordered the black yesterday. It's back ordered and I was thinking about canceling but after this post I'll give it a chance! I do think it looks really cute! I hope more colors come unstock. I'm thinking maybe I should order another color while they have my size.
Love, love, love this shirt! Have it in 3 colors and the wine is on its way to me this week! Is it crazy that I have every single must have that you list at the end of your post except the KS necklace?! Love your recs girl!!!!
I love this kind of shirts! I bought several from the brand named Camaieu.
Blake G says
Ordered it in black after your FB post last night. So excited to get it in!
What size is Rusty wearing? She looks more my size.
I'm not sure. Rusti, if you see this, please answer! 🙂
Rusti Pitts says
I'm wearing a medium. I'm 5'7 and usually wear an 8/10. Hope that helps 🙂
Thanks! I usually wear an 8 if it's loose enough and am 5'3".
How does this compare size-wise to the similar Pleione shirts from the anniversary sale? Does this run smaller (hopefully!)??
This shirt is definitely longer. Is that what you mean? I have an x-small in the pleione shirt…..and I ordered a small in this one to make sure it would be long enough and blousy enough for leggings. Hope this helps! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
The Pleione shirt was HUGE on me and looked awful (I ordered an xs) I ordered this must have shirt in olive green (size small) and LOVE it! Its a little big but doesn't look boxy like the Pleione did. I've worn it 3x already. Love love love it!
Seasoned with Grace says
I might order after seeing Rusti and it looks like Nikki wearing the shirt with a cami under it. Thanks for sharing their pictures too!
I have this shirt in 3 colors and just ordered the olive. It's definitely a must have! Loving the way you styled the olive with white jeans!
Love, love, LOVE this shirt! I have the teal and just ordered the ivory last week!
I ordered last week and it is coming today! I ordered my sister one too, I got the teal, she got the olive. Love it with white jeans!
Melanie Smith says
I was hoping this came in plus size, as it looks super cute! Unfortunately, I'm out of luck! Boo!
Funny in My Mind says
It IS tight in the arms
It was on me. I'm a 12 top and got the large and it's too tight in the arms.
I got this shirt for Christmas and am having to send it back because I had the arms-too-small problem as well as a boobs-too-small problem (I always have to size up for the chest) 🙁 BUT I have it on the way in another color (the one my husband bought me was out of stock) and I can't WAIT to get it! I have the other Must Have shirt in an emerald color (I can't remember the exact one) and I'm wearing it today – I LOVE it!! I also got the Must Have leggings and the BP leggings that you'd recommended before for Christmas.. So glad Pinterest Told Me To told me to and I told my husband to! 🙂
I'm confused – your shirt does not have a pocket on the front and the ones in the link do? I just prefer the no-pocket version because I think it looks dressier but I can't find it. Do you have a link to the exact (no pocket) one you have? Thanks!
My shirts have pockets too! If you look at the picture, the pocket is on the left hand side of the picture. Lots of people have asked this question today, but mine does in fact have pockets as well! Hope this helps! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Mya Heston says
I'm sure you've done this already but can you do a half tuck tutorial? I can't seem to get it right!
I'll see if I can throw something together! Thanks for the suggestion Mya! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
I have a couple of the non tunic style and LOVE THEM. But are the tunic length ones leggings appropriate for the tall girls?? I'm 5'9". Help me fellow tall PTMT followers!!
Hi Kristin! I guess it depends on the length of your legs and torso, but a couple of readers that are also 5'9" commented on different facebook posts saying they are able to wear it with leggings!
Amy in PA says
Got mine today and at 5'8" I would say that it's definitely long enough for leggings on taller girls.
Unfortunately for me by the time I clicked on the link for the black and white pattern lush blouse it was all sold out 🙁
I love the wine color, it's so versatile definitely a must have! I always look forward to your bachelor recaps, I just love Ben already!
Laura J says
I'm trying not to buy too many clothes now, but when you say something is a Must Have and on sale…I'm getting it! I ordered the black (back ordered) and the blue and white patterned one. I'm so glad I found this blog! I'm finally dressing like a grown woman! ;).
colleen @ 50 days of no grey says
Nordstrom is now in Vancouver, so I am going to check out all your must haves – starting with the jeans and that tunic! Thanks for all the great advice & wish me luck!
M&M FASHION BITES says
Cute photos 🙂

Bought these tops on the anniversary sale…Forgive me if I've said this already, but have Nordstrom sew up the slit in the front a bit (it's free!) so you don't need to wear a cami (is anyone with me that having to wear a cami under everything gets old?!?). You're welcome alterations ladies at Nordies.
I just have to thank you for telling us about this shirt. I now have it in 4 colors and it makes my life so much easier! I do early intervention with kids with special needs and spend a lot of time playing with them in the floor. I've always had a hard time finding things that look professional but still make it easy to move around. This shirt, leggings, and boots have proven to be the perfect combination to look both professional and child friendly. Thank you so so so much!
Dee S says
My husband just caught me ordering this shirt & I told him that you told me to LOL!! Looks super cute and easy to wear. Definitely right up my alley. Thank you so much for sharing. Your site is A-maz-ing 🙂
First of all, if that's what you look like w/o makeup, then I'd encourage you never to spend another penny on the makeup industry! great coloring! You have gorgeous hair too.
Ok! So thank you for sharing the tunic! Just bought olive and the Legion blue but alot of them are sold out (in case anyone is interested, they better buy quickly). The price is right! Woohoo! I only hope it looks as good on me as it does on you!
Hi Sheaffer! I started following your blog a few months ago and I love it!!!! I ordered the tassle necklace that you're wearing with the olive shirt. It's really long on me but doesn't look that long on you. Did you shorten it? Thanks!!
Hi Cathy! I didn't do anything to it, so I'm not sure?!? I also have a pretty short torso (and longer legs) for my height. I wish I was more help! xoxo, Sheaffer
