I went shopping a couple of weeks ago for the first time since I had the baby, and I have to say, it was quite the positive experience. I still have a few pounds to lose, but it was all sorts of liberating to be able to venture back into clothing sections and stores that didn't feature predominantly maternity or oversized, stretchy apparel intended for working out. It was also downright exhilarating to see spring collections on display you guys. After the winter from hell, I can't put into words how ready I am for warm weather clothing, and the racks were gloriously full of lightweight floral dresses, floppy hats, cut-off shorts and fun graphic tees. Graphic tees in particular seemed to be everywhere. They're kind of a long-time staple for spring and summer anyway, but the designs this season really caught my eye. I noticed lots of bold prints, typography, white/black/gray combos (as well as more vivid colors), and soft, worn-in fabrics. I ended up coming home and searching for even more of them online after my shopping adventure. (Admittedly, I may have to put myself in a t-shirt time-out before my entire spring/summer wardrobe for 2014 becomes a graphic tee fest.)
The eight tees above represent some of my favorite finds that I came across during my recent shopping adventure and online search, and I thought I'd share them with you. The styles are different (and so are the price points), but they're all on trend, easy to keep casual (pair with cut-offs, a black slouchy beanie and some worn-in boots) or dress up (try with a tailored jacket or a pencil skirt and some fierce heels), and they all feature fun graphics. I'm especially a fan of #1 from rue21 and #2 from Urban Outfitters. Oh and I'm wearing #5 right now (true story).
Which of these do you like the best? Who else is looking forward to wearing endless graphic tees this spring?
