This post may be one of the longest and most detailed I have ever done. I mean, this thing has taken me 5 days to finish. I hope somebody finds something they like from the links I added. Even if it’s just one! 🙂
1. Graphic Tee
I few weeks ago, I bought this graphic tee from J Crew Factory (obvi):
Their sizes run so big, that I bought smaller than I usually wear. Sadly, it ended up being too small 😦
I saw this quote on the Pin’, and it’s so, so true…
So, now, all I do is think about it. And how I wish they had my size. And all the pins I see, depict fab graphic tees with ripped jeans and blazers and summer hats and handsome men and exotic places. I could have a handsome, mysterious man on a deserted, Mediterranean beach…he would notice me by the “Ciao” on my shirt…if I only had my J. Crew tee…
The thing I like most about the Ciao tee is that it’s not overly In-Yo-Face, it’s just effortlessly cool. OK, I’ll stop now and just post some similar ones that aren’t as good and make me wish I just bought the right size in the first place.
The one above is by Nordstrom, who awesomely offers their TrueSize feature. You put in sizes of other brands of clothes you like, and it will tell you which size you would need in whatever clothes you are looking at. Anyway, to rub salt in the wound, this is what came up when I clocked on the “Dream” T-Shirt:
But to end on a happy note, there was this ridiculously fab graphic tee…source
2. Crystal Statement Necklace
This is not a new trend. And if anything, it might be on it’s way out. But, when I was at the Clover Market, this past weekend, a cute vintage shop had a really pretty crystal necklace, which means that maybe this classic beauty isn’t going anywhere.
I already have this lovely colorful one from J Crew Factory, majorly on sale.
And I love it’s fun vibe, but I am looking for a classy neutral one to go with everything else I own. Maybe I’ll wear one like this everyday and be known as “The Girl with the Crystal Statement Necklace”…*daydream mode*
Btw, after I put this into the post, I saw Jillian Harris post this exact same necklace on her “Must Have” Valentine’s Gift List…just sayin’…
This one from Charming Charlie is cute too, but I am not really a fan of matching sets.
This delicate Crystal Shatter Collar from Bauble Bar makes a statement, even on it’s thin chain 🙂
I’m still wanting something a little more dramatic (surprise), so the Pearl Orwell Bib from Bauble Bar seems a little more like what I am looking for:
And this last Bauble Bar gem is pretty dramatic too:
The only thing that would make this better, is if the Graphic Tee and Necklace were worn together…
5 thoughts on “On The Hunt: Graphic Tee and Crystal Statement Necklace”
I think a graphic tee paired with a statement necklace is a super cute look. I don’t think I’ve found the perfect tee yet, though, because I don’t feel like I could pull it off. I really like that first t-shirt about New York, Paris and Milano.
Thanks, Paige! Keep checking the J Crew and J Crew factory sites. That’s where I get all of my best graphic tees! My Ciao Tee is one of my faves 🙂
