Favorite Item of the Week - Sonoma life + style T-Shirts From Kohls

I love Kohls. Perhaps not as much as my mother, who seems to be obsessed with their sales racks. However, I fully admit that I am equally obsessed with their Sonama life + style t-shirts. It's not just any t-shirt mind you- it is the softest, best-fitting, non-fading t-shirt available to mankind! Well that could be a slight exaggeration considering I haven't actually tried on every t-shirt available to mankind, but I do know it is the best t-shirt I have ever owned. Every season (be it fall or spring) I invest in my new line of Sonoma tees and buy one in every color. A bit over the top I know, but well worth it. They are my staple buy of the season!

They are amazingly affordable (regular price around $12, but always available on sale or with a coupon. they are normally well under $10) Last week I bought all the new summer colors for $6.99 and in the fall I usually buy the long sleeved ones for $8.99.

Why am I in love with these specific t-shirts? Well...
1- they don't cling (I hate clingy clothes!!!)
2- they don't fade.
3- they don't stretch.
4- they are the perfect length! (they work great with skirts, pants, or whatever you like wearing)
5 - they are versatile
6 - they wash well
7 - they're really flattering
8- they're available in v-neck, round neck, etc
9 - they're also available in really adorable colors for summer and have a variety of prints as well (beach scenes, etc)
10- they're really comfy!

So, are you convinced yet? If not, buy just one and you will soon find out... Sonoma life + style t-shirts from Kohls are the best t-shirts you will find this summer.

One of the best things about a nice t-shirt is that you can wear it so many different ways. Here I've put together a 5 examples all using the basic black tee from Sonama.

This outfit shows how a basic black tee can be dressed up with a cute, flouncy skirt and summery accessories!

If you like more of an athletic look, try pairing your tee with some knee length, cuffed shorts and gray hooded vest. The flowy vest and pink accessories keep the outift from being too boyish and add a playful touch.

You can't go wrong with black and white. It's summery, classy and chic! For a splash of color and style, add accesories in a bold, summer color- red, yellow, fuschia, orange, green, etc. I love these red accessories... especially this tangle of gorgeous necklaces inspired by Alice in Wonderland!

You can throw together a quick outfit with a long skirt and a few metallic accessories. It's boho but chic!

The t-shirts are also great for layering as they are the type of cotton that doesn't cling to other fabrics. They lay very smoothly and don't bunch up underneath jackets or other layers. For summer, I love bright pops of color! Actually I love bright colors all year long. :) These lime colored accessories looks so beautiful against this rich blue jacket. The peacock feather earrings serve to tie it all in together.
