Things I Love: The Madewell Universal Tee (and also Doomsday Preppers)


So I have a shopping problem.

If you know me, you know that this is the case. I have more clothes than I know what to do with. When I was in first or second grade I remember thinking “I never want to wear the same outfit twice,” and honestly, for the most part I’ve stuck to that credo. I mean, I’ll wear a variation on an outfit, change the hair, make up, etc., but there’s something satisfying about creating a new look every day, and by now it’s second nature.

ANYWAY. I love Madewell. I can’t typically afford it, of course, but their clean lines and perfectly slouchy I-stole-this-from-my-boyfriend look is my lazy saturday (or, ok, tuesday. or wednesday. or thursday…) inspiration. I can’t usually walk by one without going in, and running errands in Soho earlier this weekend was no exception.

However this day, THIS DAY, I was to take home a treat-yo’ self prize: the Universal Tee in Olive. 

Guys: this shirt? The softest.  And the color? I mean, as a redhead, I have my share of green shirts, but none make me feel quite like I could survive a zombie apocalypse and still look put together. As they say on Doomsday Preppers (which I may or may not have been marathoning since I found it on Netflix) “When the S*&t hits the fan at least I’ll look like I know what I’m doing.” Ok, so maybe not that last part. But that first part…they sure do say it a lot. But I digress.


Don’t you want to invite me to your bunker for a little bit of hunting and gathering?

Now for the important info: all t-shirts are 25-30% off right now…and with an added student discount this shirt clocked in at around $15. Totally worth a Treat Yo’ Self buy.


yours in end-of-the-world splurges,
