My Favorite Graphic Tee

August 17, 2018

Hi friends! 2018 is moving too fast don't you agree?! I have been so busy these past few weeks. Last week I went to D.C. to visit family and take a mini vacation. This is my final week before I start my classes again so I am trying to pack as much as I can into this last weekend while trying to avoid my homework. Here's a few snaps of what I've been up to.
Like I said I went to D.C. last week and it wouldn't be a trip to our nation's capital without going to see a museum or two. I stopped by the Smithsonian Museum of Art and the National Gallery of Art. Back in July I went to Omaha and visited my friend Jessica. She was so sweet and made an itinerary for my trip and suggested possibly the best ice cream I've had in my entire life called Coneflower Creamery. It was so good I went back the next day. Aside from trips I have been busy attending blogger events. I went to Shop Modern Society's opening which you might have seen on my Instagram story, I saw a pre-screening of Crazy Rich Asians thanks to a blogger friend, and I went to a Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen Menu Tasting Event where I got to try so many delicious things! I loved their onion rings, New Orleans pasta, and of course homemade chocolate fudge cake. They also have some great non-alcoholic drinks! Overall, I was amazed at how affordable and tasty their menu is. There are so many options plus they are super friendly with dietary restrictions.

Now onto outfit details. To be honest I only own a few graphic t-shirts and this Mariah one was one I had wanted found it on Urban Outfitters for a relatively good price and snatched it up immediately. Vintage MC shirts are expensive! I had been looking for a vintage Mariah shirt FOREVER. Don't get me wrong 2k Mariah is still great, but 90s Mariah is iconic.
What might be surprising to is that I actually am very hesitant about graphic tees mainly because in middle school (a very traumatic time) I am accumulated so many clothes and graphic tees over the years, and I still need to send them to ThredUp. Crazy how your whole middle school wardrobe is not supposed to last. I hope this trend can change in the future. Now I really think about whether graphic shirts in my closet are going to be durable or fleeting like in middle school. I only have few other shirts like a Molly Ringwald shirt I gave to my friend for a grad gift but she never wore it so now I have it haha.

I think for styling graphic tees you have to keep it simple. For me I chose some plain denim from Urban Outfitters and my new favorite loafers. Which I reviewed on this post, here.
What's your favorite graphic tee? I'll see you next week  folks! It feels sad to say goodbye to summer but we'll be drinking pumpkin spice chais so soon!

  1. Super cute tee! I saw Mariah in Vegas perform. Her voice is magical!!!
    I wear a lot of logo tees!

  2. Omg all hail 90s Mariah. I used to blast her #1s CD - it was such a great sing along soundtrack. All that food sounds amazing. I went to a sushi burrito place I loved so much I went back the next week. So I know what you mean.

  9. The year is sure speeding away,that T-shirt goes so well with your jeans.

  10. I am obsessed with graphic tees right now and I love how fashion is nowadays that no matter your style, there is always a way to wear them. I do agree that we might see the trend leave soon, but like all these trends, it will be back again and you will find yourself wearing that same middle school t-shirt years later. I love how you styled it and all the best preparing to return to school.

  16. I couldn't agree more! 90's Mariah Carey was AMAZING and she was one of the singers who I looked up too! This days she's just...well, a little sad.
