Today I want to talk about t-shirts which are a staple in my wardrobe for sure. If you are like me you have your favorite qualities in a tee and when you find one you love you tend to want to purchase it in all your favorite colors.
I like a t-shirt that has some give to it but is thick enough that I don't have to wear a tank top underneath if I don't want to. It needs to be long enough to allow me to raise my arms without baring my mid section but short enough to tuck into my pants without rolling up at the bottom.
I have tried expensive ($15- $20) brands and bargain basement (under $5) as well.
I bought this black and white long sleeve tee from Faded Glory on a whim at Walmart for around $6.00. This stripe was on my list of staples I wanted in my wardrobe and I thought at that price it was worth a try.
And I'm happy to say that I love it. It meets all my favorite T-shirt criteria and has held it's shape well in the wash to boot. I'm looking forward to styling it in all these cute ways that I found on pinterest. And yes, I went back and bought it in a couple of my favorite colors.

My hope for the coming weeks is to start taking a couple of my wardrobe staples and show you how I've styled them in a few different ways.
Since we're talking wardrobe stables ,what are the five things in your closet that you consider the basics of your wardrobe? I think mine would be jeans, t-shirts, cardigan/blazer, white blouse and maybe one versatile dress.
