SIXTY-SEVEN/ it's t-shirt tiiiiimeeee

Oh look, it's an actual outfit post! I haven't done one of these in what seems like years. And unlike the what the above picture suggests, it has nothing to do with Christmas. (It's just impossible to find a spot in my house to take pictures that isn't completely decked out in decorations)

Confession: I have an obscene amount of t-shirts. Some may call me a hoarder but I prefer the term collector. I have various band tees, t-shirts with ironic sayings and a drawer chalk-full of shirts that have origins unknown. I don't know why I have so many; I hardly wear them and when I do it's usually just to go to bed. I ordered this "FELINE / MEOW" t-shirt a few weeks back and although it is so overdone- I just had to have it. I'm a self proclaimed crazy cat person and beyond obsessed with brand names so I loved how it kind of mixes those two worlds.

Wearing t-shirts without looking lazy is somewhat of a challenge, but I like to think of myself as a risk taker. To avoid the whole "just rolled out of bed" look, I paired the tee with a few of my go to pieces. For starters, I chose a pair of cigarette cut black skinny jeans. I currently have ten pairs of black skinny jeans in my closet and they are my number one go to item. In my eyes they make casual looks a little bit more polished. I threw on a ton of my favourite gold tone accessories for a little bit of glitz and glam and I wore a pair of classic black pointed toe heels to show that I really mean business.

My favourite part of this look though is of course the sweater. This is one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe right now and I can't stop wearing it. It is so cozy and just so totally me that I fell in love with the second I saw it. I try to wear it as often as I can and I truly believe that it adds a bit of interest even to the most bland of looks.

I can tell that I'm going to get a lot of wear out of this ensemble so I apologize in advance to everyone sees me on a fairly regular basis. You will see me wear this, and you will see me wear this often.
