I know I wear a lot of “classics” here on the blog. While that might seem incredibly boring to some people, it’s honestly just what my style centres around. For the most part, I reach for that soft, worn-in white tee and those perfectly fitting jeans. To me these are one of a kind. Any woman can tell you that shopping for jeans is a nightmare and I agree. I also feel that way about shopping for the “classics.” There are so many versions out there and many of them are poorly cut, with cheap fabric and unforgiving shapes.

So when Plenty asked me to style their Best Basics, I jumped at the chance. I have literally worn this tee every day since receiving it. I will be purchasing it in black and grey as well (TIP: buy in bulk when you find a basic you love). Classic ≠ boring.

P.S. As I mentioned before, I would like to offer you, my faithful readers, a special 20% discount off Plenty’s Best Basics when purchasing online. Use code JILLIAN20 and shop until March 23!

Happy Friday!!

      It’s an XS. They fit a little bigger but shrink a teeny bit in the wash 🙂

    Basics are the best! I feel my best in a white tee, black denim and flats! Loving those orange pumps – they get me every time!

    These are some great classics; they fit you so well. I’m having such a tough time finding a good loose tee. Either the fit is funny, or the fabric is cheap . . . I might be a little picky..

      I am the PICKIEST person ever.. it annoys the hell out of whoever I go shopping with! I love a loose tee as well.. PS the 20% promo for Plenty basics is extended to the end of the week if you want to grab that tee! Use JILLIAN20 🙂
