Red & White All Over

I have about a handful of summer go-to outfits in my wardrobe - just the same 4-5 that I rotate between.  I can buy new clothes, but no matter what (like a good pair of jeans), I resort back to the same few.  Luckily work outfits break up the monotony.  This SUPER CHEAP (and I am talking INEXPENSIVE) outfit is one of my favorites - monochromatic white is something I normally don't do (as someone who constantly has food in my teeth, hair & clothes, I avoid it all costs), but for the past 3 weeks, I think I've worn it at least 4 times.  The men's Fruit of the Loom wifebeater comes in a 3-pack & I simply used household scissors to cut the neckline & this F21 skirt was no more than $30.  Pair it up with a bright-colored bra (this one also from F21 for $5), slip on a pair of sandals & I look way more put together than the actual thought-process behind it.  Easy breezy man!

  1. i love the idea with the DIY neckline on a wifebeater... they probably sell the same thing for 5x the price at other places! :P this is a great look but like you, i try to avoid wearing white especially in the summer... pit stains, food stains, dirt stains, you name it. hahaha!

  2. SMEXY!! i think you should be getting some 'special' formspring questions now.

  3. you look good! Most likely no cabana fail, huh.
    I am too scared to wear a lot of (unflattering) white because someone would try to push me back into the ocean.

  4. I need to find a white shirt like this. I love pairing tanks with brightly colored, borderline obnoxious bras. I think it looks so much more fun than a plain, boring, nude or white bra ... LAME. Let's make life more interesting than that!

  6. yikes!! I was beginning to wonder what had happened to you. I'm glad you're feeling much better and back in the blogging world. LOL as you can tell, I haven't been that great with up keeping my blog either (although no injuries here, just summer break). Can't wait to read your posts =) thanks for the bday wishes!

  7. I like how you cut the neckline of the wifebeater. And this outfit looks so simple and effortless but so cute at the same time.

    I love the necklace. Where is it from?


  8. haha, too funny. i'm the same way and have been taking a pair of scissors to men's hanes tees...literally did one this morning. love the white skirt!


  9. You have such a lovely natural beauty to you. And I really adore your skirt!
