Polka dots, horses, and two questions

Scarf: Old Navy via Buffalo Exchange (similar); Shirt: Anthro;
Necklace: J.Crew Factory;  Bracelet: Urban; Pants: Urban; Shoes: c/o Blowfish

Scarves are magical. Really, they are. I got this scarf on a whim at Buffalo Exchange, and boy, am I glad I did. I've been experimenting with ways to wear it, and shawl-style came naturally. And good thing, too, because horses and oversized polka dots are meant to be worn together.

Now two questions:
  1. Who makes the best plain white tee?
  2. Who makes the best chambray shirt?

I'm asking because those are really the only two tops I plan on wearing this summer. Answer away!

  2. Ohh, let me know about the chambray. I have yet to get one myself. But as for white v-neck tees, Joe Fresh. 8 dollars, soft and the perfect cut/fit. I got my first one last week, and I've already gone back to buy more.

  4. My favorite chambray top is from Madewell. Still searching for the plain white T. I've heard Hanes or Mossimo are great...but I'm not convinced :)

  6. I have a chambray top that I nabbed from my sister a few years ago. She bought it at Express and I'm completely in love with it. In general, though, I've always found Express button ups have the best fit.

  7. I too want to know where to get a great chambray shirt. Specifically for a rather tall lady.

    I love this outfit... horses and oversized polka dots where so made for each other!! :) 

    Best White T- The gap employee in me wants to say Gap. BUT I have one from Ann Tayor as gift and I love it. 
    Chambray- GAP right now! http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=34609&vid=1&pid=202386&scid=202386002

  9. I love my Lee chambray top, but my Mudd white tee ripped on a whim basically after I got it.  :-( 

    I love scarves and I love the way that you wear them.  So creative and fun!  Have a great weekend Kristine!

  15. I'd have to say J Crew and J Crew,even though i have one from neither-does that mean i'm disqualified? Madewell has a lot of cute chambray and jean shirts in all the washes you could want. My favorite jean shirt(thats kinda like chambray??) is a miley cyrus walmart top i got for about $3 at a thrift store. No kidding-I am that classy. Really though, it is the best-faded in the right places, just fitted enough and soooo soft and comfy! They probably don't sell it anymore though:/ I love your blog Kristine!

  17. Oh my....those pants look amazing on you!!!!
    And sadly I don't really own the perfect white tee and chambray shirt... I have a purple tee from Bananna Republic that I love so I assume their white would be good too ;)

    I know nothing about the chambray business, but Target has decent basics. Also, my friend swears up and down by Joe Fresh clothes, especially for basics. Gap Body is generally pretty good, too. (:
