How I Wear a Tee Shirt With Text / Verbiage On It

Sorry for the lack of posts last week. In the winter my only option is to photograph on the weekends because it is dark all the time. Sometimes my weekend life is really full and I can’t get around to photographing any outfits. Like last weekend, when we were out of town. We did leave early on Sunday, but came home to a massive snowstorm. So… Yeah… Didn’t happen.

Things DID work out this weekend though.

I love the whole tee shirt with text on it trend. However, I am incredibly picky about what my tee shirts say. The ones with French sayings aren’t going to fly because I live in a neighborhood with a bunch of French families. (There is a French school nearby for all the expats.) Some others are too snotty, and I’m not snotty enough to wear them. Some are just dumb. The one I’m wearing actually means something to me, because it is lyrics to a great song from one of my favorite bands of all time. When I saw it, I KNEW I needed to have it in my life. Bonus points if you know who the band is.

Where did I wear this? I wore it to work on casual Friday. Pushing the envelope as I always do. You know… Because I’m a bad-ass. I mean, my shirt DOES have a skull on it. So there’s that.

  1. Now I’m going to have that song stuck in my head all day. There are worse things that could happen 🙂

    I recently discovered your blog and love your style! I, too, am on a self-imposed shopping ban. I’ve been shopping my own closet and with the help of blogs, I’ve gotten some great ideas. Thanks!

    I actually work at one of the places you shoot your pictures. In the day to day craziness, it’s easy to overlook it’s beauty. Since finding your blog, I’ve been paying closer attention to my surroundings. Such a pretty and peaceful place, even in the dead of winter. So, thanks for that, too!

    1. Yay! A local! You must be at Cranbrook/Brookside (or The Kirk). I love shooting at all of them. There are SO many interesting nooks and crannies at Cranbrook and Brookside. It’s amazing there.

      1. I’m at the Kirk. I love Cranbrook. We shoot all of our family pictures there. There are so many great places that we never hit the same spot twice.

  2. The Smiths? I remember them. Love this hip casual look. I have a hard time with graphic tees as well. I just don’t feel like I’m cool enough or like you said, snotty enough to pull off some of those graphic tees. ~Cynthia

  3. A little bit of rock and roll never hurts… I sometimes wear T-shirts with text, as long as the text makes sense. I like to mix them with something a bit dressier, to give it an edgier look. Stay warm.

  4. Love this look. I have been searching for some cute T-shirts with text/verbiage/cool graphics. I think I’m going to order a couple from this Society6. Question about sizing: Did you get the women’s fit t-shirt and what size (if I may ask)? I’m normally a small top but have recently started buying more mediums for a more fluid fit that seems to feel more current. I’m thinking of ordering the women’s fit in a large. I have a longish torso and these look to have some length to them (which I like). Any feedback on sizing will be greatly appreciated. I love, love your style and your blog — I am learning from you!

    1. Thank you for you kind comment! I’m wearing a women’s large in the fitted tee. For reference, I typically wear a Med in J. Crew or Gap (except when they are stupidly oversized). If you are generally a small, the medium should work.

  5. I love a rock and roll tee, esp one with personal meaning. I have a Beatles and a Stones tee (I’m old) : > thanks for sharing your cool look with Visible Monday.

  6. Ashley, love your style! Great tee, great lyrics. I only looked at graphic tees this year and have enjoyed incorporating them into my wardrobe.

  7. I agree. It’s important to be picky about what one plasters across her chest. Very cool .. much better than “I’m with Stupid” or most of the other chesty T-shirt memes. You wear it well, of course, and attitude is everything, yes? That and styling it all casually with solid quality. And hanging it all on your great figure beneath your pretty face and your signature red lippy. I’m always in complete admiration when I stop by.
