Excuse Our French but…
As we approach the season finale of The Bachelorette and The RHONY is already set for their reunion, what’s a girl to do? SHOP!!! Now thats a good idea! But everything is a mess, the stores are marked down and yes, “fall is arriving.”
So, I decided the best bang for my buck is to buy something that can work from hot summer days into cool fall nights. I still love that I can hang in my closet and see where my money has gone this week. Decisions, decisions- I went with a Bastille Day type theme. Yes, I know it was earlier in the week but still, why not? I can always celebrate!
And since I am not jetting off to Saint Tropez this weekend, I guess I will pretend I’m there.
I love the graphic tee because I can always express myself without saying a word and others around me can think what they want. It’s fun, it’s creative, and sometimes not even really me. I have always been a basic, black, white, navy, grey girl but I decided that the French really have it right. They step out, so I am following their LEAD.
Unfortunately, shlumpy t-shirts aren’t always an appropriate dress code, which is why SFTL wants to explain how to dress these comfy shirts up.
- Pair your favorite graphic T with a pair of skinny jeans and heels instead of sneakers or flats for a more delicate approach.
- Throw on a flannel
- Tuck in your T to a leather mini skirt and dress up with edgy heels for a look that screams “night out on the town”
- Apply some brightly colored lipstick for a look that stands out
- Sport a jean vest on top
- Wear with a floral maxi skirt for a fun, flirty and summery look
The graphic T is easily one of my favorite pieces of all my wardrobe and with these tips, I can take my T from a casual hangout with friends to an upscale restaurant no problem, or should I say pas de problème.
