ISO: The perfect fall T
This diva is dreaming of a perfect T-shirt for our blast of cool air. I want something warmer than my summer tanks, but lightweight and layer-able. Ideally, it will have three-quarter length sleeve, be machine washable and have modicum of style.
Turns out, it's nearly impossible to find.
Before a recent leaf-stomping trip to North Carolina, I went on a hunt. At my first stop, Ann Taylor Loft (aka LOFT), I found the lightweight, stripe tee with a stylish boat neck pictured at left, only to choke on the price -- $39.50!!!
Stop two: Target, where shockingly the fall tee's were boring beyond tears. And the sweaters on sale belonged someplace where people are already living in fur trim.
I finally scored a lightweight sweater at the new Nordstrom Rack. (I'll confess, it was in the junior's section, the only place where I could find basic and affordable.) But I can already tell it's a pain to wash.
Fellow bargainstas, help a girl out! Where are you finding your lightweight, fall T's? You know what I want... the perfect weekend shirt that can go from a crisp, morning walk to a late night beer run without breaking a sweat. Does it exist? Can dreams really come true?
