Why I finally added graphic tees to my wardrobe

Casual Friday

When I worked in a business casual office we sort of had an unwritten rule that you shouldn’t wear any shirts with words on them. Unless, of course, it was a shirt from the university bookstore (yes, I used to work at a university). So when I’d see gals online wearing cute graphic tees with fun jewelry and jackets I’d get sad. I didn’t even own any graphic tees that weren’t from some running shoe manufacturer that I got for free in a raffle or from a race.

But now at my current job I can basically wear whatever I want. So, I do. And the first thing I decided was that I wanted to add some graphic tees to my wardrobe.

So I did.

So imagine how excited I was to find it at the One of a Kind show I went to back in December. I’ve since included this top in my Treatment for bv flagyl post and I get excited every time I think of a new way to wear it. Which is why I included it in my Top 10 Remix Challenge.

The tee has a little heart where Chicago is which I think it appropriate. I never EVER thought I would end up loving the city so much. I never thought of myself as a big city gal. But, it turns out, I am. I may not stay in Chicago forever, but I will love it forever for many reasons.

Sharing this Top 10 Remix outfit with Sarah who started this whole thing. This post has TWO of my pieces in it which I think means it has to be shared.
