Grey Tee for the Win and Bringing Basics to Life

If anyone’s been looking for a good grey tee, I’m kind of in love with this one!  Similar to how I’m always open to adding a good striped shirt to my closet, I’m starting to feel that way about grey tees.  I’ve got a couple with graphics, like my Home T and More Love Please tee, and I have a light heather grey one from Everlane (HERE).  But I saw the one above online (HERE) and had to try it!  I loved the heather grey, and it looked soft with a nice loose fit.  When I finally tried it on, I was not disappointed!  

It’s the most expensive plain t-shirt I’ve ever bought, though it’s not too far off from Everlane’s prices.  I used to be willing to only pay like $3 to $8 MAX for a plain tee because I just thought they looked so plain and they only way I knew how to wear them was for working out.  But I’m finally convinced that a good texture like the heather grey on this shirt and a good drape make a freaking fantastic tee that is worth paying more than $8 for.  Took me a while to be convinced–I’m stubborn!

It’s soft and pretty thin, which is nice for relaxed looks in warmer weather.  I’m normally S/M or 6/8 and wearing this in S.  Also, it’s 30% off with free shipping HERE!

Benson and I decided to have a lunch date because with how busy we’ve been, how much I’ve been traveling, and how often we’ve been sick it’s been a while since we went on a date.  I remembered saying in a past post that I needed to wear these blush lace up flats with white jeans and a grey tee next, so I was glad to materialize that for lunch!  I love that though all the pieces are basics, trendy shoes keep them fresh.  I guess there’s the tip of the day: Wear an outfit full of basics and add one trendy and/or statement item.  Be it a pair of shoes, a statement necklace, a patterned scarf, or killer earrings, that one tiny element will bring your basics to life!  
BTW these shoes are BACK IN STOCK (HERE).  I’m normally 8.5-9 and wearing these in 9.
