T-shirts to a T

The most basic and essential thing every woman needs is a white T-shirt. So, why are good ones so hard to find? I’ve been a Target girl on this for so long, but those just seem to be getting worse and worse in quality. So, I found two Madewell white T-shirts recently at Nordstrom Rack, and for $30 each, they better be amazing! I’d love to know your picks on where to buy the best white T-shirts?!

Lou & Grey Leisure World

I really thought I was done with Ann Taylor LOFT. I think I’d been to too many outlets of shapeless bland clothing until I found Lou & Grey, the store’s super soft leisure line. From rompers to cardigans to dresses, this line feels so good to travel in, wear to the beach in and generally do nothing in. Plus, it’s really nice to have something forgiving to wear in the desert oven that is summer in Tucson. Looks like I can’t quit you yet, AT!

How to Do a LWD for Summer

One of the best things about a hot desert summer is getting to break out the white dresses. No matter the dust, the dirt, the newly laid blacktops and roads (um, everywhere right now!), wearing white in summer is a basic human right. Here are some of my fave LWDs…

A Gem of a Facial Roller


I first read about Gemstone Facial RollersĀ in a recent issue of Town & Country magazine, and they looked so appealing, I had to order one. While you can find them at Nordstrom and Anthropologie, I ordered mine from Amazon. Because….Prime.

I chose the Rose Quartz roller (about $29) only because it looked sturdy and had better reviews than some of the Jade rollers. So, this is how it works: after you cleanse, you apply your favorite serum onto your face, then use the gemstone roller to rub it in. The roller is supposed to help fight wrinkles, smooth your face and make it look more youthful.

I’ve noticed none of that so far, but it sure does feel cooling on my skin, and in this 100-degree season we’re in, I’ll take it.
