Lately, I've been loving the combo of a t-shirt and a fancy skirt. I'm especially loving graphic tees with a fashion related or French saying. Many of the blog popular shirts are crazy expensive. Try $225 for one t-shirt! I know, INSANE. I created a board on Pinterest titled "Style I Should Try". I pin photos there of outfits I love and want to emulate. My love of this fancy casual outfit has made me want to expand my skirt and t-shirt wardrobe. I've been looking for some great skirts and I just made a run to Old Navy for some new tees. These ladies are my inspiration.
All of the ladies above have such great style. Their basic idea was the same, a t-shirt and a fancy skirt but they all have an amazingly different take on the concept. Everything from the fantastic, over the top, feather skirt and cool graphic tee of Blair from Atlantic - Pacific to the sweet, flowy maxi and simple gray tee of Allie from Wardrobe Oxygen. I love that each of them took the same basic idea and gave it her own twist. A couple weeks ago I went to a beauty event at Nordstrom and wore one of my favorite sparkly skirts and my vintage AC/DC t-shirt. I got lots of compliments and it was a chic but comfy outfit for a busy day. My sequin skirt is begging for the same treatment.
Old Navy is the best place for basics, like t-shirts. They're inexpensive and the perfect canvas for a graphic t-shirt DIY. My DIY is in the works. I can't wait to show you the final results.
Over the weekend I visited one of my favorite stores for bargains, Talbots Outlet. The entire store was $17.99 or less! I got an amazing black and bronze, brocade skirt for only $17.99. I can't wait to pair it with my DIY t-shirt.
What do you think of pairing a fancy skirt and t-shirt?
