boyfriends and v-necks

TWELFTH AVENUE TWELFTH AVENUE TWELFTH AVENUE TWELFTH AVENUET-shirt: Everlane. Jeans: Joe’s. Scarf: Roffe (similar here and here). Sneakers: Converse. Sunnies: Ray-Ban (similar). Bag: Cole Haan. Belt: American Eagle. Watch: Burberry.

Everlane makes the most wonderful $15 tees. I remember when their website first launched many months ago, all they offered were soft, basic v-neck tees in just a couple of colors. At $15 a piece, I snatched up two right away, one in white, one in black, and quickly acquired a second white v-neck in a larger size that I like to tie into a knot at the bottom a la Kristen Stewart. When they started offering tank tops, I got one of those, too. Now they boast a broad range of products including belts, weekender bags, blouses, sweatshirts, etc. – always simple, always well-made, always in line with their business model of super hands-on production and transparent pricing. I really want to get my hands on a pair of their summer sandals in cognac, but hesitate because I’m convinced that the second I “proceed to check out”, the weather will turn and I won’t be able to wear them. #Portlandgirlproblemz.

Obviously, the v-neck Everlane tee is a staple in my “lazy look” – y’know, the outfit made up of your favorite basics that you can throw on in two seconds and still feel somewhat put together – along with my leopard scarf, boyfriend jeans and old as sh*t studded belt and Converse sneaks (so busted, but I love ’em!). Accessories like my favorite aviators and Cole Haan crossbody bag “finish” the look for summer, but come fall/winter, I’m thinking a cute knit beanie hat and mini duffel will do the trick.

    I keep meaning to use my Everlane account and I just haven’t taken the plunge yet! That shirt looks great though! Have you tried any of their silk blouses? I’m totally curious about them…
