Little White Tee and Striped Skirt on Kendi Everyday

I’ve said before that sometimes simple outfits can be my favorite, especially ones that start with a simple tee. I think sometimes basics get a bad rap as being boring or plain. In fact most of my white tees have requested I leave ‘plain’ off when referring to their full name, now just white tee instead of the former. Or we use basic pieces as just that — basic, not thinking to pair them with elevated pieces in our closet when sometimes that’s exactly what that piece needed. Take this skirt for example, of course it handle a myriad of top choices but it just looks so classic with a simple scoop neck.

Basic doesn’t have to be boring. But they can be inexpensive. This top is $5 right now from Old Navy. Their knits are very much improved and the fit is spot on. I’m kind of all over the place with t-shirt sizes and this one fits true to size and actually feels luxe. Luxe for $5? Too good to be true. Kind of like drinking coffee and not getting it said white shirt.  You’d think by now I’m good with bleach. I’m not, but I am good at replacing little white shirts.

(PS: I also stocked up on all of my tanks with this sale going on. I picked up these in every neutral color possible to wear on the weekends while I…well, weekend. True to size and perfect pairing to my yoga pants. I’d fist bump you but again, mug full of coffee…white tee…let’s just have a silent nod towards the joy of weekend tanks and yoga pants.)

    Good to hear that their t-shirt quality has improved! Half my closet is Old Navy but I usually steer clear of the t-shirts because mine never held up well. Going to check them out now!

    Love a good white tee! Especially ones that are a little loose to move around in or tuck into a skirt or shorts. Glad that Old Navy is improving their tee quality!

    That’s awesome that it’s $5 🙂 I’ve tried getting expensive designer white tees, and they’re never any better than the cheap old navy or target tees!

    I want that necklace! My name happens to begin with K, too…. 😉

  18. That skirt is just darling! I wish it came as cheaply as the tee. I generally skip Old Navy because I find their clothes are too flimsy to flatter me, but I’m willing to give them another look.

  20. I love my “basics” I think it’s the basis of a good wardrobe. Like you said, when you pair it with an elevated piece it transforms!

    Perfect look!

    I agree that a basic tee can go with so much – they may be plain but certainly aren’t boring! 🙂

    I really like your tee with the dtriped skirt, lovely outfit combination.

    I love that necklace. Unfortunately there is not a single K anywhere in my name. Maybe I’ll change my name so I can justify having a cool K necklace. No? Too much?

    I totally agree that a basic white tee can be so stylish. It’s how you style it and you styled it so well. I’ve found some unexpected gems at Old Navy over the years and I’ve personally never tried them but people seem to also love their jeans. Any thoughts on Old Navy jeans?
