I've been drawn to graphic tees for as long as I can remember having my own money to shop with. They're comfortable, easy, and allow you to express yourself without having to say a word. My go-to travel outfit is an extra loose graphic tee, black leggings, and comfortable shoes that are easy to slip on and off (becauseee...airport security).
One of my favorite outfits to wear for a night out with friends is a graphic tee with ripped jeans, kitten heels, and statement jewelry. You'll be comfortable and trendy. Throw on a blazer to up your urban chic ante.
Have I mentioned how comfortable they are? Seriously, ya'll. I'm on the other side of 30. I can't be bothered to wear anything that makes me feel bound up or constricted. Here are a few of my faves from my collection & a few on my wishlist:
Go on now, I dare you to treat yo'self this weekend. Welcome to the comfy side of life.
When it comes to fashion, I would consider myself pretty practical. Now that I'm over 30, I refuse to wear anything that isn't comfortable (at least not for any length of time). I don't have time to nurse sunburns and blisters or untangle a wad of necklaces during my vacation. Here are 3 items that I consider summer fashion staples that you probably won't find topping any other fashion blogger lists. #sorrynotsorry
1. Baseball Cap
I picked up this pastel colored ball cap from zumiez and there are two reasons it's my beach go-to: it shields my face from the sun (I don't need help aging at this point) & I can pull my hair back into a bun without worry of my hat blowing away in a gust of wind, or my hair flailing around and sticking to my sunscreened face. I also like that it's light-colored so that it doesn't attract any more heat than necessary.
2. Dainty Necklace
I received this Kendra Scott Elisa Rose Gold Drusy Necklace from my fiancé for my birthday and it's been my staple necklace ever since. It matches everything and it's very comfortable to wear. While statement pieces are fun, it's not always practical to pack a different piece of jewelry for every outfit. I wasted too much time in my younger years untangling necklaces and overthinking what to wear.
3. Converse Chuck Taylors
For a lot of people, summer means sightseeing. And if you're sightseeing, you need a comfortable pair of shoes. If you're headed to the Zoo, outlet malls, aquarium, museum, etc do yourself a favor and pick up a pair of something cute & comfy. Converse Chuck Taylors happen to be my fave and this pair is from their dainty line which is slimmer and has a more "feminine" silhouette. I believe this shade is "purple dusk" but you'll have to go treasure hunting to find this exact pair because I picked mine up at TJ Maxx.
Chuck Taylor Pro Tip: pick up a pair of the Converse Socks that were made to be worn with Chucks. They have an ultra-low silhouette with extra cushioning to prevent any rubbing at the heel. You'll thank me later.
