The graphic tee. It's the shirt trend that's having a major moment right now. And while these witty, phrase-lined tops are nothing new, I will say it's easily one of the most versatile pieces in my current closet. There is no right or wrong way to wear it (which is why I love it so much). From ripped skinnies and sneaks to a dressed up blazer and a skirt, these fun tees pair well with just about everything. 

For today's outfit, I wore a ruffled gingham skirt with a comfy graphic tee and bow heels. It's the perfect casual-meets-dressy-ish look! I'm into that combo right now. What about you guys? With so many options to choose from, I think it's important to pick a graphic tee that has a message that actually means something to you. For me, this one feels really fitting. I have always been one to look back for a bit too long, to romanticize the past. And this year, it's been a goal of mine to be more present. It's not always easy, but the big red saying on my shirt is a fun (and fashionable) little reminder.

The metallic midi skirt. I loved it in the winter, I love it for spring and it's pretty safe to say I'll be wearing it with a tank all the way into summer. It's honestly one of the most versatile pieces I own. It is great dressed up or down, it's on every bloggers LOVE LIST and it's easy to see why. Offering a world of shimmer, this pleated midi creates just enough flash to dress up even your most basic tee (like this comfy one I have on here today) and it looks great with sneakers or sky-high stilettos. Yup, the options are truly endless with this skirt. It is insanely versatile skirt and right now, this one from DressLilly is under $30. 

Hope you're all enjoying the long weekend. I am actually working today but I had a great couple of days. I ate Korean BBQ, danced with friends and even caught a few extra zzz's. Doesn't get much better than that, does it?
