Ya’ll, if you don’t take advantage now with the code, you are going to be kicking yourself when you see this necklace on me ALL THE TIME and start wishing you had one of your own!
For those of you that missed yesterday’s post (you can click HERE to see it), the above necklace isn’t just my name, it’s my signature.
Seriously. Give me a little credit. 😉
Okay. Enough about the necklace. For now anyway. 😉
Let’s talk t-shirts.
I’ve received an astonishing amount of e-mails in the last 2-3 weeks about my favorite t-shirt.
I have two NEW v-neck t-shirts from EVERLANE,
and I am SO EXCITED to share them with you today!
Haven’t heard of them? That’s okay, neither had I until about a month ago!
I feel like all of us are always on the quest for a perfect t-shirt, and I just might just have found it!
Last year I was in love with the J Crew Factory t-shirt (found HERE). And I still love the Factory t-shirt , but it’s pretty much a 1 season t-shirt. The v-neck starts fraying after lots of washes, but they are inexpensive, so they are still a good go to t-shirt, and there are lots of bright and fun colors to choose from!
HOWEVER, I wouldn’t say it’s the perfect shirt.
But the v-neck I’ve found from Everlane is pretty close to perfection.
The only sad thing is that the shirt only comes in 6 colors.
If it came in more, I’m pretty sure I would own a minimum of 10.
For now, 4 will have to do. They are SO affordable!
Click HERE for the white v-neck c/o Everlane.
Here’s what the Everlane site says about their t-shirts:
*100% Supima Cotton
*Made in Los Angeles
Constructed from the softest lightweight cotton we could find. This v-neck for ladies fits close to the body but still relaxed.
And it’s soft!
I’ve washed d both of the t-shirts a couple of times each, and they hold up great in the wash!
And they didn’t shrink at all!
And by the way, I AM WEARING THE HECK OUT OF MK MANDARIN MOCCASINS.
THEY ADD THE PERFECT POP OF COLOR TO REGULAR OL’ OUTFITS, THEY ARE SOOOOOOOOOO COMFY, AND I GET COMPLIMENTS ON THEM EVERYWHERE I GO!
similar watch HERE, orange sequin bracelet HERE, spiky renegade bracelet HERE, eden bracelet HERE, similar cuffed jeans HERE (sorry, can’t find a similar version that’s cheaper, but these have 5 star reviews), Michael Kors mandarin moccasins HERE (look how cute they are!)
On another day, I wore the basic white v-neck with a green cardigan.
white v-neck HERE, blingy hoops HERE, similar white ceramic watch HERE,
pink sequin bracelet HERE, nude patent flats HERE
The nude patent flats are also a staple for me. They are so simple, they are neutral for crying out loud, but they still add such a nice touch to outfits. I guess it’s the patent!
And now the white again with the military jacket this time.
AND YES. I AM WEARING THE MILITARY JACKET. AGAIN.
It’s about to get embarrassing. :0
BUT DON’T YOU LOVE THE BELOW LOOK?
Soooo simple yet really put together and cute!

Vigoss light colored jeans HERE, white sequin bracelet HERE, spiky bracelet HERE,

I am love LOVE LOVING these EVERLANE v-necks.
For the record, I tried the scoop neck version too, and I didn’t love it nearly as much. I found it to be quite a bit bigger and the fit was to roomy for me. I really liked the fitted (but not at all tight) v-neck version. Plus, I just prefer a v-neck.
And not only do I love the t-shirts, I also love what Everlane stands for.
Click HERE to read about their vision of Radical Transparency for their brand. It’s so good!
Anyway, in response to your e-mails about the quest for the perfect t-shirt, I think you should give the EVERLANE v-necks a try.
fitted, but not tight
AND SERIOUSLY, I PROMISE YOU THAT IF YOU DON’T OWN A MILITARY JACKET, YOU NEED 1. AND IF YOU OWN 1, YOU NEED ANOTHER. AND IF YOU OWN 2…
YEP, you still need another.
I’m not crazy.
Click HERE for this one. My friend Andrea got it and can’t stop raving about it!
And you can’t beat the $54 price tag!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the jacket
AND GUESS WHAT! THAT’S THE EVERLANE WHITE V-NECK UNDER IT (HERE)!
Again, wearing a medium in the t-shirt, but think I could pull off a small if it’ weren’t for the boobs.
Story of my life.
And I’m showing you THIS one for the first time today. It’s another great one if you are wanting a long length. The hood rolls up and fits in the collar if you don’t want the hood out.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
Are you interested in what I’m wearing under the jacket? THIS tank, and it’s fabulous. I’m wearing a small. I’ll be talking about them more in a couple of weeks on my accessories post!
I’m wearing a medium above (because they didn’t have a small in store), but I wear smalls in this tank when I’m layering them under things.
And I’ve got one more thing to highlight!
My FABULOUS new tote!
Click HERE for my bag c/o Barrington.
(Use the code BLOGON for a free shipping code that lasts just through the end of this weekend.)
It’s called the Nantucket Tote, and I cannot wait to start using this bad boy constantly!
It can fit my laptop as well as lots of file folders! AND LOOK HOW DARLING IT IS!
I will be taking it to conferences for sure. It will also be going with me on weekend trips.
It would also be PERFECT to carry on a plane. I could fill it with magazines, a couple of water bottles, an ipad, and some snacks.
And I could do it all in style. 😉
the Nantucket Tote HERE
And that little leather square in the middle? It has my initials.
From the Barrington Site:
A fan favorite over the last decade, The Nantucket Tote is made of
durable Ballistic Nylon and trimmed with the highest grade Florentine
leather. This everyday style features a roomy, natural cotton canvas
lined interior with plenty of pockets that easily accommodate all of
your essentials, whether you’re headed to the office, running around
town or packing for a weekend getaway. We can deboss your initials into
the leather to make it unmistakably yours.
If you’ve been looking for a PERFECT tote bag, LOOK NO FURTHER!
I wanted to give you a close up of the leather detailing (it’s gorgeous leather) and my initials on the center square. Such a nice little personal touch!
There are 7 different colors and 9 different patterns to choose from and it’s SO MUCH FUN designing your own!
