City, family, ice cream. These are a few of my favorite things! And I’m thrilled when I add something to my closet that I can wear experiencing all the things I love. As I become increasingly selective about what I add to my wardrobe, it’s imperative that each piece of clothing works for more than one scope of my life.
Last week I walked you guys through my selection process for finding my color with Jamie + the Jones, using their awesome swatch process. Today, I’m taking the shirt I selected for a spin with the family and for a little night out.
I’ve long-admired the stunning line of tactile garments created by the duo behind Jamie + the Jones. But their recently unveiled Staple Basic collection took my obsession to a new level! Elevated basics are basically my jam. I love a shirt that can be simple and practical, or dressed up to make a gorgeous statement. These are the kind of pieces that make getting dressed easy because I can wear them almost anywhere.
This is probably the most photo-heavy post I’ve every published, but I am excited to show you how I made this top work for me, so here goes!
I love it when I can wear my ‘me’ clothes to the park rather than having to settle for ‘mom’ clothes. Raw silk is durable and washable, so I can play with my favorite threesome and not have to worry too much about snags or stains.

Sometimes, I step out of the ‘mom role’ for a night out and get to revel in the pure bliss of feeling young and carefree again! When we can snag a sitter, my husband and I love to go out for drinks or dessert. And I’m never one to pass on the opportunity for a happy hour with my lady friends, chatting, relaxing, sharing wine or IPA’s.
I love how this umber top kicks my neutrals up a notch, bringing whole new color palette possibilities to my wardrobe. Whether I’m in, out, and mommin’ or not, easy outfits are the name of my game.
How would you you style a Staple Basic Tee? And what color lipstick should I wear with this top? Spice? Brown? Neutral?
