When I came back from Barcelona and Stockholm with a whole new wardrobe in my suitcase, I promised to myself to stay away from the discount shopping back in Finland. A couple of days ago temptation won me over when I walked into the Selected store, and found this basic v-neck cotton tee for just 5 Euros. I’m still quite proud of myself managing to avoid all the alluring window displays with the huge discount signs beckoning you in “just to check the selection”, yet you end up buying something you’d never get with the full price.
Therefore I was happy to find something so simple and useful, instead of something you can just wear once or twice. So last night, this great new find transferred into a very comfortable party ensemble, when I paired it with ripped jeans and my dear old platform booties. Even though I danced like a madman, the shirt kept me comfortable and cool in a very hot and sweaty environment. It just might be the simple element I was missing in my wardrobe all along.
