the not so basic tee


It’s snowing and I’m currently bundled up in my pajamas binge watching Reign on Netflix. (I’m on season 2 and currently the Queen of France and Scotland is making me sick. I really can’t stand her character). Any who, not so long ago we had 70 degree weather in February, when one could wear a basic tee and a leather jacket. Oh wow the weather has changed. I spent the better part of this snow day planning vacations to Los Angeles, Joshua Tree and Oaxaca Mexico.

Hopefully this weather will break soon and I can rock basic tees and denim all spring long. I’ve somehow started a mini collection of vintage rocker tee shirts and can’t wait to wear them with silk skirts and the perfect embellished boots right into summer.


In the hopes of Spring coming sooner rather than later check out this little giveaway for gift certificate to shop at Mixology, a great online retailer with many awesome options to choose from. I have a $25 gift certificate for one lucky reader to use. To enter leave a comment on this post and let me know what you’d get from their site. They have free shipping on orders over $75 too.


Good Luck

    Hey Boo! Love the Mixology site. Considering I’m a collector of vintage tees and cute hoodies/tees with a inspirational and/or classy smart assy saying I would SO GET the Good hYOUman “Better Than Yesterday” Tee and the Decker Luxe “Wonderful” hoodie, both of which are on sale. I’m allergic to full price retail so this would be a #WIN for ya girl. Keep doing great work. Proud of you!

    Hi! I am a blue jeans and tee kinda girl. For something different, I would get matching sweaters for me any my daughter ( and I would get this cold shoulder top (

    btw, I love the Reign series and hoped they would continue the show. Yes the Queen of France is crazy and devious but the mix of characters is what makes the show so fantastic. Not to mention the fashions and edgy music — it’s current, it’s sexy, and yet it fits the era!!
