Frozen

This past Saturday was my niece’s 6th birthday party. The Frozen theme turned out to be a huge success and she was very happy to have Elsa and Anna attend her special day. After all she is a princess herself and princesses get together and do princess things. My sister and I thought it would be a very cute idea for all the ladies in the family to wear frozen t-shirts and style it in our own way. First we found one at Forever 21, then JCPenny had more of a selection, but not many in our sizes, Kohl’s had everything we were looking for. When I think of a graphic tee I automatically think jeans and sneakers,  but I totally went against the norm pairing my tee with a leather mini skirt and a black blazer. As much as would have liked to be in heels in my sister’s backyard, I probably wasn’t going to be able to move around as much so instead I added my Prabal Gurung for Target sandals that I haven’t worn at all and a bunch of my favorite bracelets to my outfit, keeping it young and fresh for a kid’s party.

How do you wear your graphic tees?

Standing Tall

I’ve been so busy lately, but finally here is the last of last week’s outfit. I love a crisp white t-shirt to use as a blank canvas, dressing it up or down in many ways. I tucked the shirt into the maxi pencil skirt, wrapped a plated belt around my waist and added lace up heels for this sultry look. A black high waist skirt makes you look and feel taller. The belt accentuates the waist, while the shoes added some sassiness to the outfit and extra height.

How do you dress (up or down) your white tee?
