Do you want to know what makes it really hard to be a blogger? Not shopping for clothes.
I haven’t bought anything new in over two months. Why? Because I like the clothes I already have, wear them all the time and don’t need to buy things just for the sake of having something new.
The big issue is I’m left styling the same stuff over and over again on the blog. And that triggers all kinds of insecurities about being a style blogger (which I don’t actually consider myself, btw).
So thanks for bearing with me and not only coming back every week, but also appreciating the fact that I really do shop my closet, live the capsule wardrobe philosophy and practice “less is more” in real life.
This week I’m styling some closet staples that are so basic I almost feel guilty – a white tee and jeans.
Never underestimate the power of a plain white tee and jeans. Pull your favorite white tee out of the back of your closet! I’m going to show you exactly how to wear a t-shirt fashionably. (Make sure to check out how I made this look date night ready with only a few tweaks.)
Continuing with my stream of consciousness, answer me this – whatever happened to belts?
I almost never see them anymore but love how finished they make an outfit feel.
It’s official, you heard it here, I’m bringing belts back! It’s like bringing sexy back…but belts.
On that note, let’s just move on to this week’s SAHMonday outfit, ok? If you’re new around here SAHMonday is a weekly series where I share what I’m really wearing. It’s for the stay at home and work from home moms of the world (like me) who aren’t leaving the house on Monday morning but still want to look cute and put together.
How to Wear a T-Shirt Fashionably
If you’re looking for an awesome basic white tee, look no further than this one. It’s just slouchy enough, not see through and holds up wash after wash! You’re going to want all the colors.
This bracelet set can be worn all together or just one or two at a time. I love the druzy piece!
My patent belt is a few years old and no longer available, but this one is a nice alternative that will stay in style forever.
