At Home in a White Tee

I like to think of basics as fundamentals.
A white tee is a MUST in your closet.
And not just one! 
You have to invest in a couple of different cuts from oversized, to v-neck to cropped.
I purchased about three white tees this weekend because ironically...I had none!
You can find great affordable choices at Forever21 and Urban Outfitters
Just remember to replenish them frequently, they can get raggedy fast.

Emin and I spent our Labor Day weekend at home...
Shooting, planning, shopping and playing.
This denim and white All-Americana look was shot on the porch before heading out for some errands.
I love the effortless look of denim and white.
My white Shoemint Teo's and Zara sunnies were the perfect details for the "last day of summer".

Hope everyone had an amazing three day holiday!

"Never trust a woman who can't wear flats"...
I stumbled upon this quote from the 1990's TV show The Nanny...
(A personal favorite of mine might I add.)
The funny little meme kind of hit home because I for one was a woman who never wore flats.
I was known to wear heels EVERYWHERE...
and wearing heels had a lot to do with my insecurity about my height.
I'm petite and barely hit 5'2...in the fashion world almost every one towers over me.
I felt I had to wear heels to compensate for height and presence in a room.
Ironically, in the last year I've gained a confidence I never had before.
I'm comfortable in my skin and am grateful for everything I have...
Big booty...short legs...skinny arms and more!

A year ago I would have never worn a pair of oxfords...
But the Candance from Shoemint is now my absolute favorite shoe! 
Can't wait to wear them out in New York for Fashion Week.

I've never been much of a designer name kinda gal.
I just wear what I like and rarely hunt down items because of the label.
That's not to say I never buy nice things...especially when I find them on sale.
Case in point this fitted black and white Helmut Lang blazer.
It was just calling my name and I absolutely LOVE the fit.
Paired it with these super soft boyfriend jeans from Eileen Fisher...
And decided to hike them up for more of a mom jean fit.
Never, ever taking these off!
