I love stripes and I love obnoxiously bright colors, so this shirt was pretty much made for me. I got it from StyleMint*, which is a relatively new online store that sells t-shirts designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I'm sure those of you who are my fellow fashion bloggers already know about it, but for those of you who don't, here's a quick rundown: They offer a new selection of shirts every month that you can choose from, but as far as I can tell they also keep a lot of the old shirts around for several months at a time. Each shirt costs $29.99 (though they're always emailing me coupon codes for 10-25% off, so I'm not sure you'd ever have to pay that much), and they have a few things like cardigans that cost a bit more. I really love that they provide such a wide variety of t-shirts that are both functional and trendy, but what I don't like is that after you make your first purchase, your credit card is charged every month for $29.99, and they give you one "credit" on your account to use towards any shirt. You can opt out of that charge, but only if you do it within the first five days of the month. They send you an email reminder about opting out - but I don't love the idea of, say, being on vacation and having my credit card charged just because I didn't check my email for a few days. Still, I love the striped shirt I got, and they have enough interesting styles that I think I'll continue to be a member and just opt out of purchasing on the months that I don't want (or more importantly, need) a new shirt.
*If you sign up via that link, I will get credit for it - which of course I would love! But I just thought you should know :)
