What I Wore Wednesday {The V-Neck Tee}

 -I could wear a white v-neck tee every day of my life. To me, they are a definite staple to any closet and also super versatile.
-I love that you can play with fun accessories to change up the look of one.
-I wear them to sleep, to work out, with skinny jeans, boyfriends jeans, shorts, long skirts...
 -You can wear one with a cute scarf, or a chunky statement necklace. Wear a cardigan over it, or a blazer..
So many options. 

Get yourself a good v-neck white t-shirt if you don't already have one. You will thank me. Oh and then tell me where you got yours cause I'm always in search of the perfect one. In fact I have probably collected too many in search, but it has to be just right...The right length, the right sleeves. Not too fitted, not too loose. One that will keep it's shape all day and not get all stretched out and raggedy looking.

This Old Navy one has come pretty close to my crazy stipulations, but it's had it's fair share of wear so I need a new one. Do you have a go-to place for a good v-neck tee? Am I the only one with this obsession? Surely not....

 Scarf: F21 {9$ recent}
White V-Neck Tee: Old Navy {major clearance last year}
Boyfriend Jeans: Old Navy about 2 years ago!
Sandals: F21 {8ish bucks or so? recent}

P to the S. One of these days I will move away from the safety of my front door entry to take some of these pictures. But I can't promise anything.....what if the neighbors see me? Heaven Forbid ;)
also, these jeans? not sure they are the most flattering on me, but they are super comfortable so that tidbit won over flattery this time. My mom always taught us that beauty is pain, but sometimes you just gotta go with comfort, amen? Amen.

  1. I have a Vneck obsession, I have some from Old Navy, JC Penny, Kmart, Sears...and where did I find my favorite? Wal-Mart. For 3.88! And even though they carry them year round, they change the patterns at the end of winter/summer and then you can get them for 1.88 :)

    I just counted, I have 26 V-necks...18 are from Wal-Mart! hehe

    Oh, and your jeans look fine! Love the scarf idea, I've never done that :D

  2. jeans and a v-neck. always a go to. always perfect.
    you look beautiful as always.

  3. a white v-neck or scoop neck is on my current "need to find" list! target has one that is pre-shrunk and so soft-and only $8! may have to get that one. also jcrew factory has some great ones!

  4. This just seals the deal that we were meant to be best friends.
    My sister makes fun of me and says I have an addiction to v-neck t's. SO with you... they're so versatile! Bedtime, day time, night name it. :)
    Oh and just counted and I have 8 white v-necks in my closet.
    My favorite is one from walmart years ago... haven't found one that compares yet. But as you can imagine it's kind of gross. It's kept for bedtime only now.
    Let me know if you find a good fitting one any time soon... I'm needing to invest in a few more for my collection ;)

  5. Oh and I love the jeans by the way. I'm needing to find a pair that looks like that... something casual.
    And also side note: I feel our bodies are quite similar...long torsos and a booty :) *high-five*

  6. LOVE your look! Thank you for reminding me....time for a new white T. Maybe I will check out Ann Taylor Loft or Gap...TJ Maxx... And, I do love those jeans. I'm prob more your mom's age. Comfort wins :)Thanks for sharing...enjoy your day!

  7. American Eagle always has a nice selection of v-neck tshirts! Ann Taylor is also a good choice :)

  8. Simple and yet sooo cute.. I actually like to wear the worn look jeans at times. Super cute chica

  9. a little on the pricey side, but J.Crew. Soft, washes well, good length, not too tight, not too loose. I've found that sometimes paying a little more for the quality and fit is worth it. I wear them out.
    You look great!

  10. I love the loose boyfriend cropped look - it looks cute even though they're not fitted. Sometimes you just need to be comfortable. :)

  11. Love this look! It looks so comfy and adorable! That scarf is darling, and so are the sandals! You are a doll, as always!

  12. I am obsessed with white and block tees! And of course,I need new ones as we speak. The jeans are perfect and the scarf is gorgeous. Also,my 4 year old just pointed to the screen and said "who's that?"
    me- "my friend Laura"
    him - "she's pretty"

    Can't argue with that! xoxo

  13. love it, as usual. your style is so cute!

    btw - i sent you a personal email about a week and a half ago about guest posting for me during my event MAYspiration next month on my blog. I'd like you to share Project Hope with my readers, if you are willing. :) Did the email ever come through?

  14. adorable!
    Jcrew and GAP! I have the same obsession!

  15. not gonna lie. I am wearing this outfit today because you look so cute =)

  16. I just realized! I have the same welcome mat. Love it. =) You look adorable.

  17. Um, I totally share the obsession! Which is actually a little sad considering I don't actually own one, haha, but a girl can dream :) Also, those jeans are so cute! #totaldenimenvy

  18. Oh my goodness. I have never found someone that shares the same obsession with white tee shirts! I am always searching for the perfect one..I think I own about 6 at the moment. My favorite one is from Nordstrom Rack for like $14 bucks!

  19. I love a white tee too, I like it with the scarf. :)

    I am a new follower, you have a cute blog. Great job on the running. I started running last year, but have had trouble with my knee and hip, so we will see how long I keep it up.

    Have a great weekend!


  20. You are so ADORABLE!! You look chic and effortless! I have THE HARDEST time sporting a white tee!

  21. Wouldn't it be nice to have a therapy method that could relieve your neck pain completely and stabilize your neck in anywhere from one hour to one week? The Feldenkrais Method can show you how to rid yourself of neck pain for good, without drugs, surgery or to use an inversion table for neck pain
