Plain White Tees / Shopping in the Women's Section



 Hi everybody!
Hope your week is going great!
The past couple days have been spent running to doctor's appts., lots of sofa bonding, 
plus stupid errands, like the grocery. I hate going to the market. Hate. 

Now that the Temps have reached the upper 80's this week, I have seen more tank tops in the past two days than in all of last summer! I do not like to be hOT. Ever. Even though I love my scarves and hats sooo very much, even I have to limit them for a couple months a year (usually;). 
I do still want to try to look a bit fresh this time of year, yet with covered upper arms or a light summer scarf. It's a thing...
So, instead of the usual summer tee, I visited the women's section at a store that shall not be named (the only store for miles in rural areas - where I was recently). I found a great tee to wear as a short dress thingy! I LOVE to wear oversized tops as dresses or tunics during the summer, and during the winter with tights and layers. I love the fullness of women's tops! I always head for the women's section at thrift shops. I've snagged many great pieces where other women may forget to look. I wonder if some people think that a number sewn onto the neck of their clothes really define their size?  Size labels never matter to those who are stylish, just the look they are going for.
PS - In the summer, I sometimes have to put a short skirt underneath - no freebies ;)


 Also, when wearing a plain white tee, it's always 
advantageous to wear your newest favorite summer shoes ;)
Tunic, $5.oo // Shoes, Dot's 30%off // Peter Grimm hat Scarf,Skirt,Rosary, thrifted // Vintage bracelet, Goodwill

Is it really such a big, bad world???
bonus points for matching undies ;)
 The shoes, Dot's....

My most favorite thrifted summer scarf (this year;)

Oh,Yeah, and...
I LOVE cowboy hats! (It's a thing).
We are all basically plain white t's...  
How are you gonna paint yourself today?
I choose to paint myself bubblegum happy...
Hugs and Peace,
Reva

Love the shoes! I've shopped for nightgowns in the women's sizes! The bigger the better!

And, after I was done having children, I wore my maternity smocks for ages afterwards. I understand!

I've been lurking for a while but had to say how great you look in this outfit and I love your joyful spirit. I love the little notes here too. xx

There is nothing plain about you, Reva. I love oversized things, too. One of my favorite tops is a maternity top. No kidding! I get tons of compliments when I wear it without all the annoying child birth stuff pending. Just roomy airiness. I'm now going to shop the women's section. Good advice.
