Summer Uniform to Office Style: The Graphic Tee


And just like that summer vacay has come to an end.  Of course, I am sad but I am also ready to get back to trying to figure out our new normal for the fall.  Yes, my kids are going back to school, and I am heading back into the classroom.  I am trying to stay calm, positive, and unattached to any one way of doing things.  This year is about flexibility, change and choosing to be open to new opportunities and ways of doing things.  I know it’s not going to be probably my best year of teaching.  I know I will stumble, feel exhausted, frustrated, and scared.  I also know that I am going to SHOW UP.  I am going to show up for my staff, community, families, and students.  I am going to try to keep us healthy, while also maintaining best practice in the parameters that this pandemic has placed around our way of life.  I am going to try to preserver, while also leaning on my staff and family for support.  I want to set a good example for my girls to be open to new ways of doing things and trying to lean into the uncomfortable of the unknown.  I am choosing to be respectful of other people’s decisions regarding schooling and parenting.  We are trying to do what we feel is best in a time where there are few conclusive answers and many uncertainties.


Now, on to my outfit.  The graphic tee this summer has been so popular with many age groups.  I borrow this one frequently from my teens closet and it seems appropriate since she knows nothing of the Rolling Stones or the Beetles for that matter, and I do.  An oversize graphic tee paired with jean cut offs is just the easiest summer combo out there.  Beach.  Food truck.  Outdoor concert (socially distanced).  Farmers market.  Walk with the pups.  Works all around!  But this can also work as a casual Friday office look.  Pair it up with a blazer, pair of heels, small stud earrings and a coffee to go and your office look is complete.

    1. Thanks Jodie. I love a good blazer but really need to add and switch out a few of the really old ones that show their age.

  5. What a fun graphic tee! Mine are more subdued but I love seeing these on others! School started this week and I am trying to adapt to the hybrid schedule. I need to make list and keep track of things!

  6. I love how you made the casual outfit look a little more formal with the blazer! I love blazer and jeans combo, but my poor blazers have been pretty neglected with working from home, I need to try wear them in my more casual outfits! :)

    Thank you for joining the #weekdaywearlinkup! Hope that you had a lovely weekend :) We managed to attend two birthday parties, even though the new restrictions made things a little different!

  7. I love to own a Rolling Stone tee, I think they would work for all seasons. I am loving how you transitioned it for work. Perfect as a teacher, counselor or office worker at a school, complete with a coffee tumbler.
