Let me preface this by saying that when Priya and I first started emailing about this collaboration, I was envisioning this tank tucked into a swingy skirt topped with the denim jacket (kind of like these outfits). But no… Philadelphia was all like, “Remember that heat wave in March? It was a false promise and it’s too cold to go bare legged without tights.” (I am not putting tights on again until the fall. Refuse.)
You can take the girl out of Florida, but you can’t take the Florida out of the girl.
If you don’t already own a Home T for your respective state, get on that. They are so soft and the dark gray is perfect. (They also have v-necks and baseball tees and totes and I want all of them. Did I mention they’re made in the U.S.A. and help support M.S. research?) My tank was actually a really thoughtful bridesmaid gift last year. I loved growing up in South Florida (and I always have to make that distinction), and I miss it constantly. (Yes, even though Floridians are constantly trolls and trolled on. It’s fine.)
Anyway, back to the outfit. Seeing as the temperatures in Philly are not nearly as warm as Florida, an extra layer was a must. I love the pop of color the denim jacket adds (but goodness the color is really starting to fade after a few years — last seen here). The look was still missing something, so I added this floral necklace (remember accessories really elevate basic looks). The blues are an almost perfect match. A tinted lip balm and sunglasses, and you’re good to go.
Some other notes…
I promise I own more than this pair of flats
I did not intend for most of these photos to be so ~smirky~
Yes, I know I need to get my hair fixed up ASAP
Go visit Priya’s blog to see how she styled her California tee!
Two more weeks until our #GraphicTeeTime linkup! Hope you’re enjoying all the inspiration, and don’t forget to join us!
I’m not sure when I became the type of girl who owns two Flyers shirts, but here we are. (I blame my boyfriend.) The Flyers are in the middle of a playoff push, so I figured this tee would be a good choice to kick off my graphic tee collab with Priya. (Hopefully I don’t bring bad luck on them this week!)
When I pick out a tee, I almost always default to jeans. I mean, it’s what I wore nearly everyday to high school for way too long. So you can understand why I wouldn’t want to pair my flares with sneakers, and instead opted for pointed flats. (My first choice really would’ve been black ankle boots, but I still haven’t replaced mine…and now I actually want black clogs for summer. Hello.)
I also think that accessories make a big difference. I’m still obsessed with my earpins (better seen here), though I’ll admit that they slip a bit when I wear headphones. I wish I had a good layering piece, but since this tee is off-black, it doesn’t go with too much. (Also on my shopping list, a gray textured cardigan. At hockey games, I definitely need a layer or two.) I do love the retro-inspired graphic though, so it’s not the end of the world that I can’t cover it up — with the jeans, there’s a bit of a rocker vibe I think.
Don’t forget to check out Priya’s post today too! Super excited for next week, since we’re both styling our Home T’s. (Granted, I actually have a tank but work with me here.)
Since Nick has seasons tickets to the Philadelphia Flyers, I find myself to going to the occasional hockey game right after work. I get to work and the games on public transit, so I don’t usually pack a change of clothes. Instead, I dress up my sports tees with ponte pants, a blazer and ankle boots.
Oh, and in case you were wondering just how casual my workplace is, when I wore this, a manager asked why I was dressed so fancy. I actually don’t like looking too dressed up at sporting events, so I keep the accessories simple (my usual m.o., to be honest). Earrings, a ring and a fun cuff are all I need.
I love, love star accessories, so when I saw this cuff from Wild Lilies Jewelry, I had to have it. The cuff doesn’t seem to be in stock anymore, but if you’re looking for star-shaped jewelry, I love these studs. If you have a cuff on your holiday wish list, I recommend this edgy stone one (it’s on sale!). If you missed Wild Lilies’ Black Friday/Small Business Saturday sale, don’t worry — their prices are affordable all season long.
