Never underestimate the power of a perfect white tee. I have worn this one for years (literally, years), and it makes me wish I had bought ten of them. Ideal for those roll out of bed days — we all have them — or to tone down a pair of cRazYpants like the ones you see above. It’s all about the basics, baby!

    At first glance, I thought it was a coral dress! I love the cut and the color. Best to wear during sunset. :)

    I have a pair of nearly identical pants, and I love seeing how you’ve styled these. Mine are completely sheer, so i think a pair of bike shorts or something is in order though. I love the coral color though!

    on another note we’re doing a clothing swap sponsored by in your area at the end of June and I would love to see you there!

    wow, those pants really are incredible, but so is that neon bra peaking out. Love that touch! And you just reminded me that I’m still on the hunt for a neon yellow & hot pink bra myself.

    Are you freakin’ kidding me?! Those pants are ridic and a great find. It’s a beautiful alternative to the current trend in sheer pleated midi skirts. I love the look you’ve created here with the basic tee.
