I don’t know about you but I feel so much better in the morning when I get up early and get dressed before the kids get out of bed. Does this happen everyday? NO WAY! I do have some days that my plaid pajamas are my best friend, especially when my sweet little W wakes in the middle of the night. His teething is a whole other story, but man they are all coming in at once! To make my mornings quick and easy, I like to have basics in my closet that I can just throw on. These pieces will go great with anything and transition perfectly into fall.
One basic closet piece that is a must have for easy and quick outfits is the basic tee! I swear I have bought so many different brands, colors, sizes, fabrics over the years to end up being unsatisfied with the quality.
A good basic t-shirt can be hard to find with so many options out there. I look for price, comfort and quality. I stumbled upon this brand of t-shirt during the Nordstrom sale that I will go back to over and over for a basic tee. The Socialite choker t-shirt that I was a little nervous about at first, but it was love at first sight when it arrived. The price point is great as I feel this tee is high quality, super soft and comfortable. This t-shirt comes in so many different colors too. The choker bar at the top is an added bonus. The V-neck picture online makes this top look super low cut. It isn’t at all low cut and fits nicely without exposing too much!
The Socialite t-shirt has endless possibilities. Being a mom, I need something I can throw on for kid carpool, grocery store trips and class parties. This t-shirt is great for fall too. Throw on a cardigan or jacket, like this cute camo jacket I found during the last Loft sale. Keep an eye out, Loft usually runs great sales every month!
Another basic t-shirt that I discovered while shopping the Nordstrom sale is this Caslon pocket t-shirt. It comes in so many different colors that it is hard to choose just one. I couldn’t believe how soft and comfortable it was when I opened it up. For reference, I ordered a small.
Did I tell you how soft this t-shirt is? Think of your favorite bed sheets after a busy day at work. These t-shirts are better than that.
Once you’ve got your basic t-shirt in every color throw on your favorite shorts or jeans and you are set! I linked my favorite jeans here. For reference, I size down one or two sizes in these jeans, so make sure to try all sizes for the best fit. You can then play with different shoes, from flip flops for summer to booties and slip-ons for fall. So many options, I love them all! This pair of slip on shoes are so comfortable, and I love these too!
What other basic tops have you found that are must haves? I am always on the look out and these two from Nordstrom are at the top of my list! Plus I posted other great t-shirt links below. Happy Shopping friends!
