Graphic Tee Time #1: Fly

Flyers tee

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.)

Ohhh and even better? Priya and I are sharing outfits every Thursday in April, and on April 28th anyone and everyone gets to join in on the fun. So get those shirts ready, people!

A Spring Sweater & Some Skulls

LOFT Cardigan and Victoria Emerson bracelet

I know it can be dull to start every outfit post with a weather update, but I’ll defend it — after all, if you’re practical, the weather can play a big part in how you dress. So with this bizarre warm winter we’ve been having, I’ve been wanting to dress for spring. That’s where this cardigan, which was actually part of LOFT’s fall collection, comes in.

I mean… are the colors not perfect? The cardigan is super warm and cozy, so it’s perfect for those warm winter days when I don’t want to rely on a peacoat yet again. Now if only I could keep my chambray from wrinkling. No judgment zone, right?

My mornings get so hectic with the dogs and trying to make breakfast and/or lunch that I’m starting to accessorize with just one or two pieces. I love my wrap bracelet from Victoria Emerson — once I figured out how to put it on (it’s adjustable), it makes a big impact. When they asked me to collaborate, I had the hardest time choosing just one bracelet — I considered this one and this one, but I ended up choosing this cool skull bracelet! (I was obviously in a ~serenity~ type of mood.)

I used to be obsessed with Pirates of the Caribbean, so I just tell myself this is a more grownup way of showing off my fandom. (And maybe adding some edge? Just kidding… I am so not edgy!) I expected the bracelet to be distracting when I’m on the computer at work, so I was pleasantly surprised when this was not the case. It’s definitely less annoying than typing with bangles!

Eterna Primavera

How to Transition for Fall with a Plaid Skirt

You may thinking “hey Sarah, it’s September, why are you talking about spring and not fall?” Well first, I am firmly in the it’s-not-fall-til-it-feels-like-it camp (Philly has another heat wave going right now) and I just came back from my trip to Medellin, known as the city of the eternal spring. My mom says the city is way warmer now than it was when she was growing up, but it was nice to have sunshine without the humidity. I was even shivering at night!

I was spending too much time enjoying my trip to take outfit photos, so this was the only one that was snapped (on my mom’s phone, at that). This swingy, ’70s inspired skirt is proof that what goes around comes around in terms of fashion. My mom and I couldn’t remember when we bought it at Target, but it’s probably ~8 years old. Peasant skirts and similar styles went out of fashion for a bit, but I still held onto this one — the colors and the quality were too good. And what do you know? Similar looks are back in stores (I like this one from Old Navy).

Now that I’m reminiscing, I kind of wish we could skip ahead to spring. In the meantime, I’ll be rewearing and reworking this skirt come fall…whenever that gets here.
