This week is brought to you by: “a black t-shirt, a long necklace, a chambray shirt, (patterned) shorts, wedges, or all neutrals”.
For your viewing pleasure, I give you: a black t-shirt, a chambray shirt, and all neutrals.
The extra bits: Let’s just get one thing out of the way first: When I think of New York, I always default to black, and in the spirit of Anne’s theme of the week, I sport another all-black ensemble and successfully complete my first full week of 52 Pick-me-up compliance since gods know when. And I want to thank her for this challenge because it reminded me how profoundly happy I am when I wear black.
Huzzah for the mother of all neutrals!
Now on to the shirt. Yes, it’s got words. But it’s in Japanese. So it doesn’t count. Although, can we just officially call this my surrendering to the concept of wearing words across my chest? After all, I did love this outfit. And I have acquired and am dying to style this. So I concede to my original antipathy, with the stipulation that the words be in another language.
That said, don’t overthink today’s tee. I can’t reveal what it says because I recently found out that a handful of students have discovered my blog and I now feel compelled to keep my posts PG. Suffice to say, it’s a perfect sentiment to sport when you’re feeling particularly feisty.
I do want to give a shout out to Hunter (my current Intrepid TA) for calmly holding my hand and walking me through the process of DIY-ing a tee to fit my specifications. I’ve always eschewed tees because of their unflattering cut then realized the only issue needing fixing was the neckline (most tees being that unflattering crew neck).
I knew of people who cut their tees to give them that flattering boat/scoop neck, but was always apprehensive to do so myself since I’m coordination deficient and I didn’t want to ruin any of my newly-acquired items. But thanks to Hunter, I now understand how to do this mysterious thing. And who knows? I may just do it myself eventually instead of relying on her to wield the scissors.
Vive le vendredi!
