For those of you that have just tuned in, this fab collab is exactly how it sounds… a chic chick in her 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s shows you how to style a piece in their own way. I’m working with some of my FAVORITE gals in Dallas!!

Y’all already know I’m a fan from this post! So, I couldn’t wait to see what the gals were going to wear! Meeting for the photo shoots is always one of my favorite things because it’s a suprise!

To switch it up a bit, I wore my graphic tee with a skirt (since I had a feeling that one of the gals would show in jeans and tee). I love dressing up tees with skirts or under blazers. It’s so fun! I know it’s technically Pre-Fall, but Texas doesn’t get cooler until closer to February so we get more wear from our Spring/Summer pieces!

When I saw this graphic tee at Tarjay, I laughed out loud and knew I had to get it! It IMMEDIATELY made me think of Mean Girls! I’ve worn it countless other times already! Since it’s black and white, it goes with everything. Since we are on the subject of Target, my skirt is also a past season find from there too! I love wrap or ruffle skirts since they create such beautiful movement.

THE STYLE Rx: Instread of a regular shirt, reach for a graphic tee! Find your favorite message and wear it happily!

Here is where my outfit could have gone casual or dressy  – with the accessories. I chose dressy and wore pearl hair clips, statement earrings, and clear sandals! If I wanted to be casual, then I could have worn my sneakers instead!

Hop on over to my previous blog post to see other examples of how I wear graphic tees!

Let’s chat about what the gals wore…

I love Cathy’s casual chic look with an army jacket, jeans, and sandals. Heather and I are both wearing the same sandals (no surprise)! Natalie and Heather are both rocking the tee and jeans look!

Happy Friday Y’all! This week has been short but long at the same time! We’ve had the plumber over TWICE to install a valve and then fix a pipe that busted into our garage and master bathroom! Sometimes house stuff can be so frustrating!! Also, I can’t seem to catch up on sleep this week! I don’t know what’s going on but I’m SO TIRED!!!  We’ve got swim lessons this weekend. They are both making great progress! What are you up to this weekend?

    That tee is the coolest Sam! I love it and it looks great with the skirt! I like wearing my graphic tees with maxi skirts, I need to mix it up a little more and try it with some of my other skirts!

    Hope that you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you and you get some good rest!

    I’ve really become a fan of graphic tees this year, breaking out some older ones and wearing them “out in public” and picking up a new one. Yep, here in texas we’ll be wearing them until mid-october. i love the look of wearing them with a skirt and dressing them up a bit and i’m also a fan of those sandals you’re wearing – love them! i wear mine with jeans, both colored and blue, and with my denim skirt but haven’t really ventured much beyond that. i do have just the skirt i need to try it with. thanks so much for the inspiration!


    • Sam says:

      Thank YOU so much Ruth! Love the idea of wearing it with a denim skirt too! I love graphic tees, and that was a great reminder to bust out my “I heart NY” tee too!

    I am sorry to bother you here but I came across a photo of you wearing an outfit from the first missoni x target colab. you were wearing the sheer blue mixed media shirt with co-ordinating skirt. I have that shirt that I want to sell on ebay. (I am disabled & this is how I supplement my income… such as it is) you make this shirt look so fabulous ! it otherwise looks hard to pull off but you do it so well. do you mind if I use your photo? I would appreciate it so very much. love your blog. and I saw your pics on Rachel zoe’s box of style also. well done ! thank you for your time, Pat
