Outfit Post: The Black T-Shirt

There are very few things I love more than a good t-shirt.

Okay, there are a lot of things I probably love more than t-shirts but when it comes to my wardrobe, my t-shirt drawers (yes, there are multiples) are packed to the brim. I am ALWAYS on the hunt for a great t-shirt. Always. So you can imagine my excitement when Louisville gal Annie St. Clair (you may remember her from her Creative Louisville feature a couple weeks back) dropped me a note about her new knitwear line – A. St. Clair. Even better than a new line of tees, is that you can customize her tees to exactly what you want. So sing a verse of “you can have whatever you like” and then head over to astclair.com and pick the neckline, hem length and sleeve type of your choosing.

This black t-shirt has been my, hands-down, favorite from her line. Long hemline, scoop neck and short sleeves. I’ve worn it under a blazer for work, paired it with jean shorts for a day of shopping and worn it with leggings for a lazy day around the house. Love love love it.

Jumping the gun a little with this fall-ish look that I wore to dinner last week on an unseasonably cool evening. Just shows how a great t-shirt goes from season to season.

Best part of all – Annie is giving Lou What Wear readers 10% off so you can customize your perfect tee. Just enter code ‘louwhatwear‘ at check-out through September 4th. And we’re not done yet, head over to Instagram where I’m giving away a $100 A. St. Clair gift card. Not a bad way to start a Monday, huh?

Outfit Post: To Miami With Love * Hallmark Signature Style

I love snail mail.

Flamingo Card * Hallmark Signature Style

The minute I get home, even when I’m balancing half a million things, I grab the mail. Nine times out of ten it’s a solid mix of bills, credit card offers and junk but every once in a while there’s a handwritten note in there. Cue the feelings of being 10 again and waiting on letters from my pen pal (yes, I had a pen pal). This is probably going to date me big time but when I was younger my friends and I would send each other letters over the summers. See I’d leave Miami and head up here to Kentucky to spend the summers with my dad and grandparents so the only way to keep in touch with my middle school buds was through overly dramatic letters. I would race down the driveway to see if a sticker-covered letter had come addressed to yours truly.

I don’t get many sticker-covered letters these days but I still get a little giddy when a fun card, especially an unexpected one, shows up in my mailbox. So partnering up with Hallmark Signature to share the mailbox happiness was a no-brainer for this letter lover. When I spotted this flamingo card with the sweetest message inside, I knew I had to send those birds south back to Miami where they belong. My mom loves a good letter almost as much as I do and since her mailbox is normally the same sad mix of junk, I knew it would bring a big unexpected smile to her face.

And for this post, I figured I’d channel my inner-Brenda (that’s my mom) and add a pop of tropical color to my normal work wear – although I doubt she’d let her shirt get so wrinkly (my b). Fall may be creeping in (faster than expected judging by the weather lately) but I decided to keep summer going strong with this lime green + white combo.

So next time you swing in to the drugstore for shampoo and toothpaste, take a detour to the card aisle and share a little snail mail love of your own. Trust me your {mom, dad, best friend, sister, brother, cousin, niece, grandma, nephew, grandma} will love it.
