Grey V Neck Tee, Frayed Hem Jeans

I hope you all had a good week! I am hoping mine was filled with a lot of fun visiting and memory-making with my mom in town but since I'm preparing this in advance I suppose I can't say for sure! But that was the plan at least! I had a lot of rushed mornings prior to my mom's visit, and that meant I went for easy, basic outfits like this...with a hefty dose of jewelry to make me feel like I tried!

Outfit Notes:

This t-shirt is one of my favorites for wearing on its own (as opposed to layering with a jacket or sweater) and I just recently wore the striped version of this style (see it here) in the same simple manner. As much as t-shirts are an easy basic, the right fit makes all the difference in the styling and the overall look of the outfit, and for me, these are just perfect on their own.

These jeans are also a favorite! I love the dark wash with slight distressing but no visible skin. (I try to stay away from too much distressing on my jeans because it embarrasses one of my kids. True story.) They're comfortable (like most Express jean leggings) but I also feel like they're extra slimming and give some nice shaping, which gives them about ten bonus points if we're keeping score.

Friday Favorites: Blush Pink Bags for Spring
My blush pink satchel bag is probably my very favorite bag. Just a quick glance at my Instagram feed will show how often I use it. It just works well with a lot of my clothes, and of course I'm reaching for it even more often now that Spring is officially here. Just changing my bag and shoes makes it easy for me to make my basic outfits feel seasonally appropriate.

Since the exact color of my bag has been sold out for over a year, I'm always looking for similar options to share every time I show my bag on the blog. Right now there are quite a few options that would serve the same function as my bag at the same price point. I believe my bag was $40 originally, so all of the options below are $40 or less! Exact prices and retailers are listed for your convenience.

This week was all about simplicity and basics in everything from my outfits to my posts! Next week should be a little more diverse so I hope to see you back then!
