Katamari tee: Hot Topic
scuba skirt: Forever 21
You guys, I am a miserable, miserable mess. The temps here in St. Louis have been hovering between the mid to high 80s each day, and though I've lived in the Midwest for the past 8 years, I am still not used to the humidity that makes me feel like I am perpetually living in a sauna. My best solution to this dilemma is simple: T-shirts!
Over the years, I've collected quite a few (mostly comics related) tees. I've almost always chosen women's shirts for their slim cut silhouette even though men's tees always seem to have better graphics. Lately, though, I've been gravitating towards looser, boxier shapes, which along with other merits, provide ultimate coverage for weekend food babies. It's a fact. On a recent (and very unexpected) trip to Hot Topic, I manged to snag a couple of men's tees for $11.00. Total. Frealz.
However, the problem with boxy tees is just that-- they're boxy. The easiest way to soften boxiness, I find, is to pair it with something ultra feminine, like skirts. Now ya'llz know that the bodycon mini is my mainstay, but I've longed to try scuba skirts especially since they exude a sort of Morticia Addams feel! With a little bit of sleeve and hem folding, the addition of the skirt and some strappy sandals, my Katamari tee looks less boxy, no?
