Shabby Apple’s Amazing Super Soft T-Shirt

Check out the t-shirt and earrings I just got from Shabby Apple.

T-shirt: Shabby Apple

Earrings: Shabby Apple

Necklace: Homemade by an aunt

Shorts: LOFT Outlet (Only available in store)

Shoes: TOMS Ballet Flats (This style seems to be taking a vacation.

A few are left in the last chance section)

I have never had a t-shirt this soft. It feels like silk against my skin. This is the Chatham Tee from Shabby Apple. Basics are a very important piece of my wardrobe. I tend to be warm all the time (even during the winter) so I like to layer with cardigans or accessories. It is a nice summer day today so I opted for accessories.

My earrings are also a pick from Shabby Apple. They are called the Pompeii Earrings. I love the intricate design. It reminds me of little leaves that have dried up after fall.

I discovered Shabby Apple through the blogosphere. So many bloggers were talking about them so I had to see what the hype was about. Now that I’ve got some of their items I can completely understand why they are such a beloved company. When my items arrived they were packaged very carefully. The earrings came in this cute little bag with the logo stamped on. When I opened the bag I saw they were also protected in a box with the logo stamped on it. When a company packs their items with so much care I know that they are truly aiming to deliver the best products to their customers.

For all of my readers who have sewing skills or are DIYer’s you should know Shabby Apple also has a “Practically Perfect” section with their sale items. They sell items that may be missing a button or have some other small imperfection at a discounted price. I am totally willing to sew on a button if it means saving money on an item.

Have you bought anything from Shabby Apple? What are your favorite items?

Beach Cover-up

This lovely beach cover-up is a gift from my mom.

Dress: My local Hallmark Store

Believe it or not she bought this dress at our local Hallmark Store for only $15! Our Hallmark has a corner of the store that looks like a little boutique. They sell dresses, handbags, sandals, tops, and more along with the usually cards and gifts.

The other interesting thing about this dress is that it is labeled “One size fits all”. The fabric is stretchy and the elastic waist has quite a bit of give. The fabric is incredibly soft and breathable.

I love this dress for any beach or lake trips. It is easy enough to throw on but also looks quite nice. I wouldn’t hesitate to stop at a casual restaurant for a meal after a day at the beach in this dress.The fabric won’t wrinkle if I toss it in a beach bag while I’m out in the sun. When I pull it out of the bag it looks just as good. I think it’s a great summer piece!

How do you cover up at the beach? Do you wear sundresses? Shorts?

Enjoy your afternoon!
