Hey y’all!

I am so excited because I have finally found the perfect striped t-shirt! Every time I go shopping, I keep my eye out for a flattering striped tee. It sounds so simple, but seems so impossible to find! I happened in COS the other day in River Oaks District. It was my first time in the store, and I am kicking myself for not going in there sooner! They are the only location in Texas, (as of now) and have clothing at such a great price point + quality! Mind you, these are two things that usually don’t go in a sentence together, haha.

I really wanted to keep this store a secret, because we all have our own “hidden gems.” But, I know as a fashion blogger, this was one of the things I was going to have to give up – telling people where I get my clothes. I know that sounds so bad. Honestly, having it typed out in front of me looks pretty selfish. You are also thinking, “isn’t that the point to tell people where to shop and have a blog?” And yes, yes it pretty much is, at least for me. I want to help people find the perfect outfit as much as I can. BUT. I have loved having some of my best kept secrets of stores so I separate myself from the crowd. However, I got to thinking, if I think if something is so great, just like this top, then why not share it with everyone else? So, I promise, that even though it makes me cringe a little, my job is to help you guys make your shopping trip (online or in the store) much, much easier!

So now about this top. Here are several below from their site (because I can’t just choose one). They have several different options – the one I am wearing, a boat neck option, long sleeve, and short sleeve. I am wearing a size small and suggest to wash cold and hang to dry! The fabric is so comfortable, as it is 100% Pima Cotton. Pima Cotton is just about the best quality of cotton you can find. It is durable and the feel of the fabric is so soft!

My shoes are also another exciting find. They were $17! When was the last time you bought a clothing item for that price? They come in a blush color and nude and fit true to size! They are so comfortable and feel like house slippers that I can wear out of the house and not be judged! Shop my outfit details below.
