Like everyone else and their sister, I wanted the perfect striped breton tee to round out my wardrobe staples, but I just hadn't found it yet. Lots of the bloggers I read have one, of course, but they hadn't been current styles one could buy. So when I learned that Tania's L.L. Bean tee could still be found in the store (and is in fact a standard item they sell), I decided to give it try. And the $10 coupon and free shipping offers I had (meaning I got it for under $20) helped too...!
The top itself is great. It's not too stiff (like the ones Gap had a few months ago) and is definitely roomy (might even run a tad large), but it's a high quality top that will certainly last. The boatneck is a sweet touch, too (though not always a large-chested girl's friend). The outfit, however, is not my favorite, even though Bob called it "cute" - which in his particular dialect of boy language means he really did like it. Well, okay, Bobby. =) I'm definitely glad I tried this version ala Tania, but I'm gonna keep playing with options to really make it my own. =)
And now for the real gem of this post! We had to completely redo our photo session when I realized our first session was shot with a super crappy setting. (Why we didn't figure this out when we were actually taking the pictures, I don't know.) We might have yelled at each other for a minute, but then we just decided to let it go - and then I just let myself go... =))

Happy weekend, everyone!
