I recently updated my basic t-shirt wardrobe with these editorial favorites by Everlane and am in love with their soft, relaxed feel. Sometimes you need a change of staples to really refresh your look.

Anyone else feel anxious at the prospect of photos? My sister is a photographer and always reminds me of tips to make myself look more flattering on camera, but even so I always feel a little awkward.

Though the anxiety never goes away, ensuring that my makeup looks good helps me feel a little better. When I know that I’ll be taking photos, nothing helps face makeup look its best than a layer of foundation primer.
