Fashionistas and friends,
My fashion haus is open today to share a quickie post and a few photos of a fav tee shirt. The gals at The Blended Blog showcased some of their favorite tees. Also linking up with my buds Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom for Thursday Fashion Files and Jennie at Pocketful of Polka Dots for Fabulous Friday and Laura at I do deClaire for Confidant Twosday!
Question: can something new instantly become a favorite? Upon trying it on, this cactus cutie instantly became my new fav tee. So decided to hop into my fashion haus real quick to share it with you. Almost seems unfair to all my other tees that as soon as I slipped this shirt over my head it became a fav. Until now, I’ve felt that favorites are something time-honored, faded and broken in. But this tee changed my mind. Just don’t let these guys know.
A Fav Tee
You know what? I can’t remember where I saw this tee first. Online somewhere. Maybe in an Insta post, on Facebook or my favorite social media outlet…Pinterest. You have probably picked up my love for cactuses in recent posts featuring them in crafts I’ve made, here, here and here (had forgotten there were so many…apparently, I DO like cactuses). Or in my review of the beautiful silk cactus from Commerical Silk. Wherever I saw this tee first, I knew I had to make it mine. This is the image that called my name.
Doesn’t that bold, Tex-Mex graphic speak to you, too? Followed the image to the Heel N Spurs online shop at Shopify. Oh, the goodies they have!
My cactus cutie arrived promptly, wrapped in pretty pink tissue paper.
It was love at first sight. The colors in this tee are so vibrant. And the images made me smile and remember childhood Friday evenings at the drive-in. All 3 of us kids piled up with blankets and pillows in the ‘waaaaay’ back seat of the station wagon, eating stove popped popcorn from large brown grocery bags. Good times, great memories.
Me in My Tee
Slipped on my size 6 (check me out!!) Loft relaxed crops and beaded aqua tassel earrings to wear with my new fav tee. Forced my (healing) broken foot into my pale green Converse tennies (think Cinderella’s step-sisters) and voilà! The moment you’ve all been waiting for…me in my tee.
Next time I wear it, which might be today, I am going to go a little crazy and knot the tee at my hip. Whoa, Nellie!!
Really enjoying my LipSense colors. Have started using them almost exclusively. This is plumeria.
Thinking this would be cute with a denim skirt. And guess what? I just happen to have two. Even better, they fit! Maybe I could throw on my cowboy boots for kicks? Some of my great grandmother’s turquoise accessories. Yee haw!
Starring off into the wild, blue yonder in this pic. Have to quit being so dad-gum lazy and set up my light kit and good camera on the tripod. Someday.
Whatcha think? Can a brand new item become a favorite? Or does it have to prove itself with the test of time? What does your fav tee look like? Would love to know.
I tell you, girls, we are hemorrhaging money over here. PC used to say that if it wasn’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. Afraid I’ve rubbed off on him. Things are going out and breaking like nobody’s business here at the castle. Our ‘faux’ Sleep Number bed is going out. We replaced the springs on the garage door this morning for $600. You have heard me whine about my oven for months. Still turns off whenever it wants to. Our sprinklers stopped working last week. And the electricity in the garage stopped doing whatever it does 2 weeks ago. I feel a Little Letters post coming on, tomorrow.
So grateful that we have a home, and that PC is such a good provider that we can get these things repaired. But it is still terribly frustrating.
We were going to go out to eat tonight but when we saw the bill for the garage door, I got out the crock pot.
Thank you for putting up with me, loves.
Hugs and kisses,
