The Home T

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on The Home TΒ for quite some time! Not only does this tee shirt remind me of the place where I grew up, but a portion of the proceeds benefit MS Research. (For more on why that hits close to home (no pun intended), refer back to this post.) This insanely soft tee was the perfect base for a layered look for traveling back to Chicago last weekend!

I took a cue from Rose, and paired my Illinois tee with my Illinois necklace.

My new Dunks. Leopard, of course.

The Home T / J.Crew Chambray Shirt / Old Navy Jacket (on sale for $32!) / Kris Nations State Pendant / J Brand Jeans / Nike Dunks / Dorothy Perkins Aviators / Michael Kors Watch

Yep, I’m home… Can’t even manage to get through photos without fits of laughter! #besties

Photos taken by Ellen when I was in Chicago last weekend!

      For the life of me, I cannot remember the color name!! It’s Essie. More of a fuchsia than it shows up in the pictures.

    This is such a cute look! I love the jacket over top, and those shoes are so cute. I was really happy to see that the shirt helps benefit MS research; it is a great cause!

      I’m wearing an XS and I’m usually a 2 on top. It’s form fitting, but not too tight!
