Hello all! Happy Sunday! Today is Lefty Living Life’s five year anniversary, can you believe it? It seems like just yesterday I decided to start a blog with no plan, no vision, and absolutely no idea what I was doing. We’ve come a long way in five years and I want to take this time to say thank you. Your support, continued following, and feedback mean the world to me and make this whole process so much more fun! So thank you for sticking with me and here’s to another five years!
With today marking five years, it seemed only fitting that I wear one of the pieces that has been with me for almost the entire time. This New York Times graphic tee is by far one of my favorite pieces in my closet and it is one of those pieces that I keep coming back to time and time again.
Normally, I would say I’m not a t-shirt girl. But if there is any tie between my outfits and my style over the years, it is that there is no such thing as too many sparkles and I love dressing up an outfit. Whether it is dressing up jeans and a t-shirt or a sundress, I love experimenting and finding ways to make my outfits a little nicer and a little more sparkly.
The inspiration for this probably all comes from my high school English class when I was introduced to Oscar Wilde. Wilde has become one of my favorite authors and my favorite quote is from him: “You can never be overdressed or over educated.” I connected immediately with this quote because I always seem to overshoot the mark when it comes to formality whether I am trying to or not.
This t-shirt for example, is perfect for dressing up. The neutral color palette makes it easy to pair with almost anything whether it is a tulle skirt, lots of pink, or big earrings and a suit jacket. Suit jackets are great whether you are wearing them to work or otherwise. I love the look of a t-shirt and big jewels with a jacket. There is something so classic but fun about it, that is right up my alley.
So, thank you again for sticking with me these past five years and have a fabulous Sunday! XO
