Okay first things first, I know these shoes are so not mom-friendly. I’m sorry to have deviated from my normal momma friendly ways, but SOMETIMES I do love to wear ridiculously tall and pretty shoes. These sandals I actually thrifted last fall and I didn’t realize how tall or uncomfortable they were until I pulled them out this month. I love, love, love the high wedge, but I don’t last long in them. This outfit would work great with a much less angled wedge sandal – or even a flat – so don’t be afraid to modify it to make it work for you.
I have to say that as I was looking for similar graphic tee options out there to link up for you – and I was more than a little shocked at how negative, lazy, and dumb so many of them were! I typically make my own graphic tees so I haven’t really browsed what is out there. Why do girls or women want to walk around with tees that say such degrading or foolish things on them? I mean, I realize that my tee isn’t exactly a confidence booster or even casting me in a positive light, but it’s honest. Its clever-ish and I identify with it. But these tees?
I just don’t agree with them. Some of them are worse than others, but I’d rather see clever positive graphic tees that celebrates good things about women or even just life, not the negatives. Not the classic put downs or the concepts that make girls appear flighty or dumb or even rebellious. I really love graphic tees and I’m not saying all of the funny or silly ones are bad, but I do wish there were more positive and empowered options out there. You can find a tutorial to make the one I’m wearing today here.
Thoughts? Have you seen any particularly bad graphic tees? Any really great ones?
