T-Shirt Time!

Nov 13, 2012

I have a serious love for taking pieces and either dressing them up or down. I absolutely love white v-neck tees. The top I have on is from Target and it’s called the Boyfriend Tee, which I found for $5 on sale. I can throw on this t-shirt with a pair of my favorite jeans or a pair of sequin shorts.

It can be so hard to find a decent outfit in your closet when you haven’t been shopping since...

I love seeing a baby in something couture, but I just don’t have an extra $100 to spend on a dress. Unfortunately for me, places like “Janie and Jack” and “Baby Gap” are usually out of my...
