Fashion Friday: Styling Your Favorite Graphic Tee

I was given these products in return for a post, however all of the opinions states are entirely my own. I do not work with brands that I don’t believe in and love. 

We’re moms, so when in doubt we all put on a T-shirt when getting dressed. Plus let’s all face it we always have that one favorite one that is washed to soft perfection, it fits just right, and in our own opinion is super cute. Chances are your favorite go-to is no ordinary t-shirt but instead a graphic tee (I know mine is). Besides the obvious jeans and t-shirt combination (which by the way never fails). There are so many fun ways to style this closet staple.

My favorite graphic tee happens to be from the fabulous Tara Lynn’s Boutique. You know how I said that our favorite is washed to perfectly soft wonderful-ness, well this one comes that way brand new. Um, score! Plus I’m a new mom so I love proudly stating my new #mamabear  (click on link for this exact tee) status.

Here are my favorite ways to style my tee.

Anyway for me to wear my most favorite jean shorts (thred up find) and still look relatively stylish is a serious win in my book.

This gorgeous midi skirt (it comes in black and white too) is also another piece from Tara Lynn’s Boutique and I am in LOVE. Basically any pattern, color scheme or length would work with this basic concept. It’s a fun way to dress up this casual tee.


There are countless options and these are just for spring/summer. Stay tuned in a few weeks and I’ll show how to take this basic tee into fall.

Here are a couple other fun outfit ideas to get your creative, style juices flowin.

How to Avoid Looking Frumpy in Skirts

We all know that it is incredibly easy to look frumpy and well “blah” in a skirt, especially as moms. Skirts, however, should make you feel pretty and girly. Here are my favorite 3 styling methods to avoid the most common missteps when wearing a skirt.

The High Waist-ed Skirt:


A lot of times women have a “problem area” right in their midsection, so to avoid attracting attention to it I often see shirts worn over a high waist-ed skirt. This actually just makes you look wider, as well as a little frumpy and dumpy (I say this out of love, of course). By doing this I promise you are actually drawing even more attention to that area you’re trying to hide.



Tuck the shirt in! That’s it. You will instantly have a smaller waist and will look like a professional fashion blogger. A little trick I use to keep my shirts tucked in is to wear some spandex or tight little shorts underneath my skirt which I tuck my shirt into; this way my shirt isn’t constantly coming up.


The Maxi Skirt:


Alright that this is super comfortable and therefore very tempting but don’t wear an over-sized cardigan with a maxi skirt. It is not flattering on even the tallest and thinnest supermodel. It’s just too much flow for one outfit. You know what I mean?



Instead wear a jacket or sweater that hits right at the top of your waist. A flowing skirt needs some structure in the jacket. This will be much more slimming and I promise equally as comfortable.


The Fitted Skirt:


I totally realize that the fitted, stretchy skirt can be intimidating after having a baby (nothing ever looks the same), but they can be super cute and incredibly comfy. Wearing them with a loose, long top is not the way to pull them off, however. This makes anyone look awkwardly top-heavy. We have enough insecurities with our bodies after having kids, so I like to avoid making them worse by what I wear.



Take that loose, long, and ever so comfortable shirt and simply front-tuck it. Problem solved! It’s still a little blouse-y, you don’t have skin-tight clothes on from head to toe, but its super flattering!
