We finally made it to Friday! I swear, every day this week I woke up thinking it was Friday, and now here we finally are! I don’t even remember the last time we had sun in Philadelphia, so I think the week especially dragged. It didn’t help that I ended up getting sick either. The highlights? A fun and informative PHL Bloggers social media presentation hosted by Amber from Ember + March and a fun dog training session (Zamboni and Arya slept the rest of the night, it was wonderful). Anyway, let’s get to the links!
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.
