I have read on many fashion blogs that no one over forty should wear a graphic tee. Well if that's true, they better tell all the sports fans, proud alumnus, Jesus lovers, support groups, band groupies, and home state lovers, to stop wearing their tee shirts! Nah, not gonna happen. Who makes these rules anyway?
I love tee shirts and I wear all different kinds, with or without words or graphics, because they fit my casual lifestyle. There are no restrictions for age as far as I am concerned. Today's tee shirt I wore on a cool, misty spring day. It was one of those days where one minute it's cool, cloudy, and a bit misty, and the next minute the sun comes out and your hot. So I wore a scarf and jean jacket (old, Express), to keep me warm when the sun hid behind the clouds.
Linen Graphic T-Shirt, a.n.a boyfriend jeans, and a green Liz Clairborne hand bag (similar).
I thought the colors in this shirt was so fun and summer-like. I sent this picture of myself to my daughter and she replied 'Cute! Your looking very Floridian!'.
I love the laid back feel and look to boyfriend jeans, and the light wash denim is perfect for spring. My loafers are old, they are by Dr. Scholls so they are very comfortable.
I always try and buy at least one new hand bag every season, and this year I bought a green one after reading Bridgette's Rae's article "Why You Need a Green Handbag". She says that 'Green has often been called a colored neutral, meaning that it is a color that will work well with just about any color it is paired with.' Bridgette also states: "If you want to buy a pop color in a handbag, but also don’t want to be limited in how you can use it or want to be able to grab it with just about anything you are wearing, you can’t go wrong with green."
I thought Bridgette's logic made sense, and I liked the idea of bringing a pop of color into my spring/summer wardrobe, so I bought the Liz Clairborne bag and put the theory to a test! My results? Yes, the bag went with a majority of my outfits, but there were a couple of times the color clashed and I had to change bags. But that's o.k., who wants to carry the same bag everyday anyway?
