In my White Tee

shirt- Target
cardigan- J.Crew, thrifted
skirt, tights- Marshall's
boots- Dolce Vita via Gilt Group
necklace- vintage

There are basically a BILLION ways to style a basic white t-shirt. Every girl should have one in her closet. Actually, if you find one you like, you might as well buy a bunch because you'll end up staining them after a couple of wears. Or you'll be like me and wash it with something red and end up with a pink tee (you can't tell in the pictures...but it's definitely tinted).

So Margaret and I got together to do our little outfit post pictures, and low and behold we were both wearing white t-shirts styled completely differently. She's got a very sweet style inspired by vintage cuts and patterns, while I go for basics with subtle details (like gold buttons on a black skirt, side zipper on a cardi, etc). I love that you can get such different looks with the base of a white tee. It's one of the most versatile things you can have in your closet, for sure.

A couple of other things I want to point out in this post:
  1. My Dolce Vita boots! I snagged those from Gilt Group one day. I got really lucky because DV stuff goes quick. Luckily they fit perfectly! My last pair of brown-ish boots were cheapo Rack Room boots, so hopefully these will last a lot longer.
  2. My camera bag! I wanted something I could wear on my shoulder and easily get to my lenses during portrait and wedding shoots. I was using a satchel purse, but the lenses were loose in there and it made me nervous. My 50mm is super cheap and made of plastic, so I didn't want it to get crushed. I found the bag from Monocled Lop on Etsy, who appears to be closed now.  They added fabric inserts to a vintage bag, which was just perfect!

You and your outfit are so cute! I love the bag and the boots. You are right that a white t-shirt can look about a million different ways depending on what you do with it.
