can't wear the same shirt all the time

...or can you? I live in my Everlane tees - I have at least 4 white ones, several blue and blacks, and a few of the other colors they have in their rotation. They just fit so nicely, hold up really well, and are always comfortable (Everlane is also currently offering free shipping if you want to give even just one a shot here)

But also boring. Lately I've been really anxious about feeling overdressed when I go anywhere, so even though the plain v-necks are a great way to not feel overdressed, I also think it's time to just add a few more detailed tops into my closet that are still comfortable and not too dressy. I prefer them to have sleeves though, and that always seems to be a little difficult because all the pretty things seem to either be completely sleeveless, or have the dreaded cap sleeves (who thought those were a good idea?! seriously). 

This pretty eyelet shirt though is something I hope to try on next weekend when I'm back home for the weekend - it's cotton and not too detailed, but still interesting in it's own right. Fingers crossed it is as pretty in real life as it is online! Someone was just raving about this shirt (who was it??), and it's currently under $10 - if only they had the navy left in tall sizes, it would be on it's way to me immediately. And lately it seems that I can't get enough of Madewell - even though many of their pieces are boxy and for the skinny minnies out there, I want nothing more than for this shirt to look good on me. Why can't you have a v-neck, pretty shirt? 

And I know I said short-sleeved shirts, but can you blame me for wanting this blouse? It just looks so comfortable! Damn you online shopping.
