OOTD :: of graphic tees and no-brainer choices

Today’s Create28 prompt is Graphic Tees and was there even any doubt that I’d take advantage of this to bust out my Whovian gear?

The only question was “which one”?

This was handily answered when I realized this bad boy (pun intended) hadn’t seen the light of day since I purchased it. Other Teeturtle shirts (like this and this) took precedence due to their kawaii factor, and I honestly forgot I owned a 9 graphic tee anyway.

Well, today is a perfect day to rectify all situations. I absolutely love the fairy tale/Whovian mashup of the tee, so its message is accessible to twice as many people. Does it have words? Yes, it does. Does this go against my “no words on my chest” policy? Perhaps. But I’ve been really rethinking that stance recently (more in a later post?) and my hair partially covers the lettering so I think I’m safe for now.

I chose to pair the tee with a button-down because I do appreciate how that extra layer elevates a tee from sloppy to deliberate. I think, weather permitting, I’m gonna wear all my tees like this from now on.

I also like how the red print in the top is picked up by the red plaid of the pant. It’s not the exact shade, but it’ll do.

So I’ve actually done all three of my prompts today, thanks to Whitney’s challenge. I’m British (if you’re like me and associate plaid with punk with British), blue and Doctor Who. And you? Do tell…

  1. Aaaaaggghh! I love everything about this! The tee is so badass. And it looks so smart layered with the button-down! (I’m having a hot flash panic attack, but I’ll get over it). And loving the pattern mix!

    • Ha! I knew you at least would appreciate the awesomesauceness of the shirt. And be prepared to see loads of “button up shirt under tee” outfits from me in the future; I think I’ve found my new fashion niche!

  2. That is one cute t-shirt! Clever as well! I don’t think I have any of my Doctor Who t-shirts any more, they were all too large but I really like the wearing a shirt under one idea.x

    • I have decided to wear ALL my tees this way. I was never a tee person because the cut of a regular tee is so mannish and the cut for a women’s tee is too clingy. Slipping a button-up seems to solve my issues. Be prepared for more looks like this in the future.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
