It’s not really a question that I like to wear my heart on my sleeve. (Or, I suppose, on my chest.) I’ve always been tremendously vocal about things that are important to me and I think clothes are one of the most obvious ways we express ourselves. If your wardrobe consists of nothing but black, you’re perceived as serious and grounded – or that you invest so much of your creativity in the things you design and craft that there’s not much left over to put thought into what you wear. If you wear a lot of pink, people might think you’re trying to send a message of femininity and softness. If you wear a shirt that says “we should all be feminists,” well… I think that message is pretty self-explanatory.
This shirt is one of my faaaaavorites. It’s soft and fits well in all the right places, though not like some of those awful “women’s fit” t-shirts that were obviously not designed with large-chested women in mind. The slogan comes from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TEDx-talk-turned-essay-turned-book, We Should All Be Feminists. (Which I highly recommend, by the way. Especially if you enjoy reading other people’s perspectives on intersectional feminism and related concepts!) This shirt was actually one of the ones that inspired me to dip into the world of sassy graphic tees and make some of my very own! It especially reminds me of this one and this one.
This skirt is one of my current faves as well. It has kind of a sweet-yet-sassy down-home-country kind of feel (picture it with red gingham… do you see it, too?) and we all know chambray pairs well with just about everything. My favorite part is that it hits me right where I’m narrowest and creates a super-flattering hourglass shape. The length makes this skirt pretty universal in my opinion – it would look great with any height heel or boot or flat/sandal.
I chose to pair this skirt/shirt combo with these black peep-toe booties because I’ve been itching to break out my fall wardrobe… baby steps, right? I threw on these bright pink tassel earrings because I was not lying in my recent post about statement earrings. I’m obsessed!
Do you own any clothes that make you feel particularly sassy? Do you have any sassy statement tees that you like to break out every now and then? Leave a comment and let me know!
