Graphic Tees

Everyone, everywhere on the planet can find something as basic as a graphic tee these days. They’re everywhere, in all colors, patterns and styles. Some have jewels, some have flowers, the point is, there’s one for everybody. Below are a few fun ways to incorporate something as simple as a graphic tee into your wardrobe without making it feel like you’re wearing a plain ol’ t-shirt and jeans!

Black and White GraphicTee

Have a little fun and go a little punk rock.

Multicolored Graphic Tee

Create an eye-catching ensemble with a splash of color.
(ok, ok, this is more like a tidal wave of color than a splash but you get what I mean)

Screw the LBD

Okay, okay… so everyone COULD use a Little Black Dress in their closet from time to time, but wouldn’t it be much more fun to step out in one of these little numbers?! Patterns, geometric shapes, cutouts and fun colors seems to be gracing the pages of magazines like crazy these days, and not just in clothing, jewelry too!  Paying attention to the details can help set your look out from the rest. So next time you’ve got a hot date or a fun night out on the town, step out in something bold and leave your little black dress at home (it could use a break).

Salwar Kameez2 and a half years ago I had the pleasure of attending a good friends Indian wedding celebration. That meant I got to go shopping for an amazing, sparkly Indian dress or Salwar Kameez. I found this … and did back flips. For someone who loves sparkle AND color … I was in heaven 🙂

Soft and Sweet

I love the “J. Crew” look of a belt over a sweater but I just can’t ever seem to pull it off… until now! I love the combination of these colors together and the belt helps to pull the look together.

You Style The Day – Kristen’s Pop of Pink

Kristen (Blogger at kcattaraugus.blogspot.com and thisuglybeautiful.blogspot.com ) is showing us how a pop of pink mixed with a neutral can make a statement … in more ways than one. Thanks for sharing your look with us Kristen!
Kristen Says: I have been really inspired by your blog to look at my closet differently. Mixing classic pieces with patterns and sparkly, blingy things. Today’s look is inspired by Style the Day, although a little Fashion Playtes style with top coming from one post-nudes, and the bottom-brights and color block.
 
I usually think about what I am going to wear in the shower every morning. Most of what I wear is a silent expression of what I am thinking at the moment or who I am. I wore this nude top as a commentary about that poor girl who got suspended this week from school because she wore leggings the same color as her skin. I was thinking while washing my hair how stupid that was. Hence the top.
 
The bottom and shoes were about mixing hues that don’t seem like they go together, like hots and cools, and I was inspired by the color blocking posts. I would usually pair this top with my standby black or a pair of jeans. Thank you for giving me a new perspective.

You Style The Day – Bubble Gum Babe

Move along little black dress … step aside khakis … this post is reserved for COLOR ONLY!  I gotta admit, I am a little color crazy lately and apparently Trish is too! This is neon-tastic. I LOVE IT! Thanks for sharing!

Trish, pretty in pink

Trish Says: This outfit is just so FUN . . . I love the bright pink skirt with the pastel colours of the tee. The belt? It was a ribbon wrapped around a gift from my husband. It was too pretty to throw away, so now it’s a belt!!

You Style The Day – Jennipher: Pretty in Purple

When the “long in the back, short in the front” dresses first started making an appearance on the streets I wasn’t sure I liked them, until this one…

Today, Jennipher ( with a “PH” ) is showing off a piece that is so sheer, light and loose-fitting, perfect for those hot summer days (which we’ve all been experiencing in excess lately)! This piece could be used so many different ways. Here it’s show with a similar colored longer tank underneath, but I would also love to see it as a sheer bathing suit cover up! I love the combination of Jennipher’s red hair and the purple of the dress. The gold sparkly belt ties the entire look together and the shoes give it a little extra umph! Beautiful!

You Style The Day – Trish’s Sparkle & Shine

What’s even better than a cold drink on a hot day? How about a cute outfit (with matching straw) to lounge about in!

If there’s one thing my mom loves it’s sparkle, and today she is sharing a look that I just LOVE! Color and sparkles all rolled into one … along with a pina colada accessory, YUM! What a fun way to dress up a pair of shorts. Thanks for sharing!

I’m starting a new category called “This Outfit 3 Ways”. I’ll take one piece from my closet and show you 3 different, simple ways to change it up!

Over the weekend I was inspired by a striped dress I saw with a yellow belt. I headed into my closet to see what I could find and voila! I had all the right pieces all along and never thought to put them together. Here’s the final outcome along with 2 other fun ways to change-up a striped dress.
