White Tee & Jeans

Pickwick & Weller “Roxanne” Tee c/o, Gap Jeans (old, similar here and here), Victoria’s Secret Tshirt Bra c/o (worn but not shown), Bobbi Brown Lipgloss in “Petal”

As much as I love getting dressed up in a pretty dress and my highest heels, I love dressing down in my favorite jeans and white tee just as much. Truth be told, you can usually find me wearing this combination half of the time running around the city. It’s as classic and simple as it gets, but somehow when you find the perfect pair, it’s more pulled together than looks you’ve spent hours perfecting. Now, insert Victoria’s Secret Tshirt bra into the equation. It’s the perfect under pairing for your comfiest tees. While I love my lace bras, I hate when the textured fabric shows through my shirts. The soft cotton on the tshirt bra works perfectly with all of my tees, while still being comfy and sexy. A win win in my book!

It seems kind of strange for Victoria’s Secret to pay you to have your husband take pictures of you rolling around on a bed and then post them on a blog. Could you have maybe even taken one picture of the bra laying on a dresser or something? So we at least know what you’re trying to sell us?

Hi Amanda,

Victoria’s Secret did not pay me for this post, this is just something that I wanted to share. It’s not all about the bra- it’s the overall look :)

Doesn’t “c/o” mean that they gave you the bra for free? I would consider getting free merchandise in exchange for a positive review to be payment.

Hi Amanda,

Sorry, I wasn’t clear. Victoria’s Secret sent me the bra, but it was my choice to write about it and choose how to do so. They did not compensate me with money or “sponsor” the post.

You handled this so well. You’re a rock star in my book for that!

amanda March 20, 2014 at 9:13 pm

I understand what you’re saying. I don’t think you are intentionally trying to mislead readers but this type of thing is the reason that people have “trust issues” with fashion blogs that get tons of c/o items. VS obviously sent you a free bra with the expectation (whether it was explicitly stated or just implied) that you would write about it positively. Knowing that, coupled with the fact that we didn’t even see a picture of the thing (not being worn, duh) just makes it a less than reliable opinion, I think. It’s just an endless parade of free stuff that you just happen to really love. I’m sure you get things for free that you don’t like but we never see any of that to balance it out.

I love the iconic white tee and jeans combo. It never gets old for me. Timeless and effortless!

I am a regular reader of your blog and I usually really enjoy your material. I was disappointed to in this post as it is a knock-off of another fashion blogger that I follow, Happily Grey. While I get that you often receive the same material and that trends are duplicated, I was most disappointed that you even took pictures in the bedroom. It seemed a complete re-make to me and I would have preferred to see your own spin on it.

Julia March 20, 2014 at 5:45 pm

Hi Lynn,

I’m sorry you felt that way, that was not at all my intention. I love Mary and her blog and in no way did I try to “knock off” her. I guess we both just interpreted the “t shirt” bra in the same way :)

I completely agree! When paired with the right jeans, a simple look can always look fabulous! I’m going to have to try those tshirt bras out! They sound wonderful!

Julia,

I love this look but can’t seem to find the exact tee you got as I’ve been looking for a good white tee. Is it sold out?

Thanks,
Beka

Julia March 20, 2014 at 6:46 pm

Hi Beka,

Unfortunately it looks like the Roxanne tee in white (the one I’m wearing) is currently sold out. They have it available in a few other colors. I also really love their classic scoop neck and v neck tees- great alternatives!

Julia March 20, 2014 at 7:22 pm

Hi Julia,

I’ve been looking for classic basics that can be dressed up for quite sometime. I was wondering what size you are wearing in the tee? It’s difficult to tell when they have size 23 models on the website. Thanks!

Julia March 20, 2014 at 7:23 pm

Hi Alex,

I’m wearing a size small in the tee :) They fit pretty true to size (note, they are a little oversized fitting) so I would choose what size you normally wear in tshirts!

I see based on the size chart that I would probably order a medium, as the model is a 32 bust and is wearing the small. I worry the medium or large would be too boxy! Can you share what size your Roxanne tee in the post is? Thanks!!

How do you get that perfect skin coloring, you seriously are glowing! Maybe it’s bronzer, or the blush you use?

Also, I applaud you for even giving some of these comments the time of day, some are so rude!

Newbee to your blog. I adore your style and don’t see anything with getting inspired by other blogs, aren’t we all doing the same by reading fashion blogs anyways!!
About the VS bra, I might be in the minority but I hated the new tshirt bra, after two wears, the cup started to roll outwards and you can see the outline of the cup. I really wanted it to work, because the colors are so pretty.
