i hope you had a wonderful and restful Easter! did you get a chance to connect with those that you love? did you make brunch? what did you make? (hopefully you had a chance try our baked eggs and popovers!) now that i’m spending so much time at home, it’s amazing how the little things i used to take for granted have become, well, highlights of my day. take my daily trip to the mailbox. simple and totally forgettable a few months ago. now, it’s something i look forward to. not only is it a forcing function to get up and out of my house, but it often leads to an impromptu walk around the neighborhood. and that’s really perfect, because we’ve got a few more weeks of absolute perfect weather here in Athens. with that in mind, i thought we’d do a fun OOTD: how to wear a graphic tee.
if you caught my 10 classic essentials that transition to spring yesterday, you’ll know that the classic tee made my list. and what’s more fun in spring and summer than a graphic tee? i would say that the graphic tee made a come back a decade ago, but that’s not really true: they’ve never really went away. i’ve featuring a fun California-themed shirt from J.Crew in honor of my days past, but the best thing about graphic tees, there’s one out there just for you; and just for the mood you’re in.
graphic tees go with anything, literally. i’ve paired mine today with a pair of girlfriend jeans and an equally fun sweater also from J.Crew. it’s transition weather here, so layering is important. but depending on where you are, you may go sans sweater and, say, a pair of ankle jeans. or bootcut. or shorts. or whatever really. in a moment when fun can be hard to come by, remember, it’s the little things in life. and that’s what a good graphic tee is really.
it’s sweater weather—my favorite. so many fun options this year. i’m featuring a cardigan with muted pastels, and it contrasts nicely with the my tee. we’ve featured many cardigans on the blog over the years. dress them up; dress them down; they’re just so flexible. and this one is putting a smile on my face today. i hope it is yours too.
