Hi everyone! Today, my post is all about graphic tees! And it’s also about my siblings (I miss laughing with them). Something that you might not know about me, is that I have a very sarcastic, sometimes inappropriate sense of humor. It runs in my family. Growing up, I have many fond memories (and many embarrassing memories… hello teenage years) of hilarious conversations and situations. There was the time when my big brother decided to impersonate a pimple being popped using mashed potatoes when I had my boyfriend at the time over for dinner…hilariously embarrassing. Or the bathroom humor… this one time my sister, a friend and myself decided to make a fake cat poop out of clay and leave it on the floor during one of my parents fancy get togethers. We were in such a state of uproarious laughter that my brother was sent to check on us, he informed us that someone had picked up the “cat poop” in a napkin and left it in the kitchen sink…who does that?!? Cat poop in the sink… inappropriate, maybe, but HILARIOUS!
(My siblings and I, laughing at something as per usual)
My parents also share in our hilarious antics. Often, our whole family gets into laughing fits and we end up collectively unable to breathe. It’s one of my most favorite things about my family (I know they are reading… so more laughter please). But anyways, back to graphic tees. I have a large collection of them. Which is weird, because I didn’t always like graphic tees. Partly because I didn’t know how to style them and partly because I felt silly wearing a silly shirt. However, once I tried it, I was hooked.
(Since this photo, I’ve collected a few more..)
The secret is in how you style it and your confidence in wearing it. So, my favorite way to wear graphic tees is with skirts, specifically pencil skirts. When wearing them this way, though, you have to remember body proportions. I almost always knot my shirts when wearing with a pencil skirt, that way the shirt isn’t too baggy or long in proportion to the skirt. I also LOVE adding edge to my graphic tees outfits. I do this by either adding a jacket
(This one is a caffeine molecule shirt, because …coffee!!!)
Or I do it using accessories, like these leopard heels, or my leopard booties.
If you’re wondering where most (but not all) of these fabulous shirts came from, check Zulily. Often, they have sections dedicated to all kinds of hilarious shirts. It’s a graphic tee wonderland. The caffeine molecule shirt came from my friend, Jessica, at Gia Rose, she’s super talented and you can find her shop on Facebook. For whatever reason, it won’t let me copy her link, but go check her out.
What do you think? Are you a fan of graphic tees? Do you like laughing?!?! If you answer yes then show me or tell me about your favorites! Or tell me a funny joke… either way. Laugh on my stylish friends.
