Basic me up baby!

On the clear out of my wardrobe I've noticed my curious lack of basic, everyday clothes. Apparently all my basics and shorts have been lost in a sea of cocktail dresses, plunging tunic tops and high waisted dress skirts. Hmmmmm.......So on a spot of  late night shopping, we headed out (spending a soon-to-expire gift card) and picked me up some groovy basic tees.

 The best bit about these tops, is that they were $15 each from BigW's new range 'Avella', I'm loving it's cute and casual,chic look!

These are great tees for the transition from Winter to Spring, perfect for layering or cute on their own! I like the grey zebra print scoop neck the best. The zebra pattern is slightly sheer and it adds to the already funky look of the top; plus there is a super cute little pocket on the left breast. Ben favours the purple stripe top (it is pretty spiffy). Once upon of a time I loved the trusty old v-neck, but I think I've grown to like a deeper neckline better. Either way, I'm really digging all these cute styles, they scream 'adventures at the beach' or 'lazy dog walks on Sunday avo'.Come on Summer!!! Siiigghhhhhhh


  1. I too lately discovered my lack of basic clothing !
    so i purchased some t shirts too :)
    its nice to just dress casual sometimes especially lazy days in or out


  2. Nice all of them. I couldn't live with out a red TS, I wear with casual to casual elegant and I've never paid more than $10 for them so I wonder if people can tell but no. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine.


  3. The zebra print is definitely my fav as well! :)

  4. I love the purple stripey one, I just picked up loads of basic tshirts in the summer sale x

  5. Cute! I love the top two. They look really comfy.

  7. You can never go wrong with the basic look. I love dressing up plain basics with amazing jewelry and accessories!

  11. What lovely finds! You look absolutely gorgeous!

  12. Basics are staples in my closet... Love them all! How cute are you?!! =}

  13. I am loving Big W's new range at the moment - some really nice classic pieces that don't cost the world. The other day Target had a 20% off women's clothing sale so I went and bought 7 basic white tshirts - 3 long sleeved and 4 tank tops. It cost me about $50 and now I have one for every day of the week!

  14. Oh my goodness ladies! Thank you for all the amazing comments! I'd love to see you all 'done down' in your basics too!
