I'm not sure exactly when my mom bought this lavender long-sleeve tee for me, but I do remember wearing it to an amusement park with the rest of my 8th grade class. It's been a favorite piece throughout the years because it's comfortable, it's purple, and it's a great quality. (Could you imagine anything you bought recently holding up 15 years??)
These shorts, on the other hand, are one of the newest additions to my closet (purchased a few weeks ago also by my mom). I've been wearing them just about every time I've left the house lately. They are so perfect.
So I say when you have two favorite pieces, wear them together! I wore this outfit the other day to the bank, and the teller complimented my shoes. I wore this outfit yesterday to the zoo, and I got to meet a bear cub! By which I mean that I got to watch it play in its pen, but it came up to me for a brief moment, sniffed my finger, and then scampered off to climb the fence. Best day ever.
