Happy Tuesday, ladies! You may remember a few weeks ago I ran a mega-post: My Favorite Graphic Tees and How To Wear Them. In that post, I picked my top 10 graphic tees for 2022. One of my personal favorites---as a mother---was Mother's Day Is Every Day. So, I'm featuring it today.
Although a bit early, it's worth saying today: Happy (early) Mother's Day. To all of the mothers and grandmothers, today's post is a fun celebration of you. All of the love, joy, and tears you've invested in your children---it was and continues to be worth it.
Today's featured item is a graphic tee from J.Crew
The shirt is modeled, and I pulled together 2 alternates

I love, love, love graphic tees. They're such an easy way to imbue our personalities into our wardrobe. Plus, they go with just about everything. Pair them with pants, jeans, shorts, even a skirt. You really cannot go wrong.
Graphic tees are an easy way to add color to your outfit. But as I showed you this weekend in 5 Ways To Subtly Add Color To Your Outfit, so are accessories like a belt.
We just launched our new, quarterly e-Magazine for Spring. Here are the details on how to order your copy.
Happy Wednesday, ladies! I've received a lot of requests over the past few months for a post on graphic tees. Well, here it is: my 2022 Spring best graphic tees edition.
You can't get much more fun and expressive than graphic tees. From bands to animals to words and phrases, there are just about as many graphic tees as there are personality types. More, even.
I've done two things today: First, I've gone through the archives and pulled 5 old outfits featuring a graphic tee. I've used those outfits as a model to pull together outfits with currently available items.
Second, I"m trying something: for each outfit, I've put together a budget alternative of similars.
Finally, at the very end of the post, I've rounded up my 10 favorite graphic tees this Spring presented in no particular order. So, make sure to check them out!
Today's featured item is the graphic tee, styled 5 ways
The outfits I've modeled are all old, but I've put together similars for each
For each outfit, I've put together budget alternatives, a new feature we're trying out
My top 10 graphic tees for Spring 2022 are at the end of the post, so don't miss them!
One of the easiest ways to wear a graphic tee is by pairing it with a denim/chambray jacket. Any wash will work with just about any, if not every graphic tee. Give it a try.
Board: Relaxed-Fit Chambray Shirt (J.Crew) | Houndstooth High-Ankle Pant (Ann Taylor) | Izzy Quilted Nappa Espadrilles (Talbots) | Wicker Small Top Handle Crossbody (Kate Spade) Budget Alternatives: Chambray Shirt (J.Crew Factory) | High-Rise Utility Ankle Pants (Target) | Wicker Dome Crossbody (Walmart) | Canvas Pam Espadrille (Target)
Linen pants are an essential Summer item for me and they work perfect with graphic tees.
Banana Republic generally has a great stock of linen pants in a variety of fits and colors, so I always start there when looking for a new pair.
Board: Garment-Dyed Chore Jacket (J.Crew) | Heritage Explorer Pant (Banana Republic) | Ella Canvas Tote (Tory Burch) | Padded Slingback Sandals in Leather (J.Crew) Budget Alternatives: Utility Jacket (Walmart) | High-Rise Wide Leg Pants (Target) | Slingback Sandal (Amazon) | Canvas & Leather Tote (Target)
The not so secret secret about Tweed jackets is that they come in an assortment of beautiful and bright colors---often multi-colors.
And that's why they pair so perfectly with graphic tees---they easily highlight the graphics.
Board: Fringe Tweed Cardigan Jacket (Ann Taylor) | High-Rise Skinny Jeans (Madewell) | Zala Block Heel Pump (Marc Fisher LTD) | Nylon Shoulder Tote (Longchamp) Budget Alternatives: Tweed Jacket (Walmart) | High-Rise Light Wash Destructed Jeans (Banana Republic Factory)| Lacey D'orsay Heel Pumps (Target) | Work Tote Handbag (Target)
Last but not least, pair a graphic tee with a cardigan.
Just like tweed jackets, cardigans come in all varieties of colors and patterns, making them perfect to wear with your graphic tee.
(And I could not resist putting together a retro outfit today.)
Happy Friday, ladies! We made it through another week, and we're heading straight into the weekend. Today, we're talking what to wear with a denim jacket---one if, if not the most essential Spring jacket. In addition, we're trying something new. And I'm really excited about it.
We've partnered with local Kentucky business owner M.K. Hennigan from In the Curious Kitchen for our menu. We met M.K. earlier this year at The Southern C(oterie) Conference, and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to collaborate. M.K runs an online cocktail kit and gourmet shop---and I think you're gonna love what's on her menu.
Today's outfit is a casual classic: a denim jacket (available at Nordstrom and Liverpool Los Angeles) with a graphic tee (old, similar here, here, and here). A light wash jean jacket pairs perfectly with a pair of white pants like these white chinos from Talbots.
I love a good graphic tee, and they're the perfect way to add some levity and tailor your wardrobe. Because bright bold colors are in this year, I couldn't pass up another opportunity to wear pink---my favorite color this Spring.
Today's cocktail is an Old Fashioned---one of my personal favorites. Everything but the bourbon was provided by In The Curious Kitchen. And by "everything but", I mean everything but. The kit includes two glasses, cherry bitters, boozy cherries, and a lot more. You can order the Old Fashioned Drink Kit directly through M.K.'s store.
In The Curious Kitchen also sells made-to-order pimento and beer cheese, because no Southern evening would be complete without. And if you want to make your own, M.K. was kind enough to provide her recipe below.
In the spirit of keeping things super simple, I made my "homemade" baked ham & cheese sandwich to complement M.K.'s pimento appetizer. I went with swiss, but go with your favorite cheese! The secret sauce is M.K.'s Bourbon Honey Mustard---a perfect addition to an old favorite.
Over here at SAACA, we love to platform women entrepreneurs of all ages who take a chance to pursue their passion. What makes MK's story so interesting is that she left her day job and started In The Curious Kitchen later in life---a time when many of us are thinking of taking it a bit easier. A huge risk, but a huge inspiration.
Make sure to take a look at M.K.'s shop for everything from cocktail kits to assorted cheeses; say "hello" in the comments below; and follow MK on Instagram.
I'm MK Hennigan - Welcome to my kitchen! I love spending time in the kitchen, and my curiosity drives constant experiment. Inspired by my deep Southern roots and the women in my family, I turned my passion for all things culinary into In the Curious Kitchen. This is the place where comfort food takes innovative twists and turns. Where generations-old recipes are updated into creative small bites, family meals, and delectable desserts, this is a place where the family's traditional entertaining ideas evolve into today's fast-paced lifestyle.
