Lady-Like Graphic Tee Confessional: I'm a Bond Girl

I wasn't a graphic t-shirts fan until recently. I thought t-shirts were for high-schoolers, going to the gym, or throwing on with jeans and flip-flops. So instead, I would just buy plain basic tees because I thought they looked more grown-up and classier. But I never had the idea of pairing a t-shirt with more feminine pieces! Thank you, Pinterest, for that one. (Below are some of my favorite graphic tee looks.)

So instead of just wearing a black or white t-shirt, I choose my James Bond tee. I still styled my outfit exactly like how I would if it wasn't a graphic tee. But now, it's more personal and adds an interesting detail. A cool t-shirt can also be a conversation-starter. I get a lot of compliments on this shirt so it opens the door to talk their ear off about how I bought it at the International Spy Museum in D.C. during an East coast road trip this summer (shout-out to all my patient and loving listeners! You know who you are...) 

And here's another secret - this skirt technically doesn't fit. It's got a band around the waist that clasps with a button. The button won't go! So I wore a fitted tee over it that still slims my waist and no one is the wiser. I can't give up this skirt no matter how wonky it fits. It's a silky texture and the print is out of this world. I've never seen such bright oranges in a floral print before. And it has pockets! 

I've just started growing a graphic tee collection but luckily between thrift stores and the Korean clothing stores here, there is no end in sight. I know my friends in Korea have got some awesome and hilarious finds. What's your favorite graphic tee look like?

  1. i used to wear graphic tees ALL THE TIME when I was in college! I guess it's time to bust them out once again (pair it with either a blazer or a cardigan) <3 <3

  2. Wow, you're beautiful! And great clothes. I found this site on accident doing a report about clothing drives. Very nice, nonetheless
