Hello and happy Friday! …We made it! 😉 I don’t know about y’all, but nothing says “WEEKEND!” like ultra comfy basics you can wear all year long. If you were to open up the closet in my office, you’ll see lots of pretty blouses to wear out and about (…that mostly get worn when I am taking photos in them, ha!), but if you were to open up the closet in our bedroom, you’d find a row of cotton v-necks in every neutral color imaginable (…I am 100% being serious!). The thing is, I am a jeans and tee girl through and through (…as if y’all didn’t already catch that about me…!) – and as much as I love getting dolled up, when it comes to staple pieces I wear time and time again, a tie-front tee and adorable pair of white cutoffs are no brainers because I know I’ll be wearing these all. the. time. (Ps. I styled this tee a different way on my IG feed, you can check it out here. See what I mean? One tee, so many ways).
Last week I took a break from my computer and enjoyed some in-person shopping at the mall…and it was heavenly. I am such a big online shopper (as y’all know…!), that to grab a coffee and actually stroll through stores felt like such a special treat…therapeutic in a way. I ventured into Express and as I loaded up my hands with denim shorts and spring dresses, I turned my head to see a wall of THE softest everyday basics: tees, leggings, sweatshirts…Immediately I knew I’d hit the jackpot. Express has a line of “everyday essentials” called One Eleven – and trust me, this line is GOOD. They really do carry those fabulous essentials to take you from a coffee date downtown, to a quick weekly grocery store run (…#realreality ). What I am getting at is that One Eleven is the line you’ll be wearing everyday and feeling SO good in! Comfy, effortless, sexy (those slouchier tees I am linking to below are pretty darn fabulous) and above all, pieces you’ll actually wear (all the time!).
My tee is One Eleven and y’all…it’s $25!! Might as well stock up in all the colors because this things is sooo cute. I love a good tie-front (adds such a playful touch!) and this mauve color looks amazing with denim shorts. Aaand on the subject of these shorts – they are super flattering (high rise), have some stretch to them and I’m a big fan of the longer, more relaxed length. These shorts run big, so order a size down! I am usually a 0 or a 2 and the 00 actually was the perfect fit.
If you’re searching for some cozy, cute and casual essentials to add to your spring wardrobe, take a look at the One Eleven line at Express! Aaand good news: take $25 off your purchase of $100+ in-store only, using the ring code: 3410 *Valid through May 15th, read the terms & conditions here.
Wishing you a lovely Friday!! XO
