Summer Graphic Tees that are Actually Cool

For this Wishlist Wednesday, I wanted to talk about a California style essential... 

the graphic tee.

Now, I see a lot of stuff on Pinterest talking about "California girl style" that references boho maxi dresses and crocheted tops or peasant blouses. 

While those are certainly lovely, and I definitely wear them myself, one of the absolute must-have wardrobe staples of a true Cali girl is the graphic tee (or tank). Wear it over a swimsuit to the beach, or under a relaxed flannel when the weather starts to cool down. 

Either way, they are one of the most versatile items in any chick's wardrobe. That being said, there are a lot of ways that you can get cheesy really quick with a graphic tee. Rosé all day? Suuuuper basic (don't get me wrong, I love rosé, but the shirts are so cheesy - at least now that they've already been done). Vintage band tee? If you didn't get it at the concert or a thrift shop, I don't want to hear it.

My favorite graphic tees are from surf and skate brands, because I feel like they make the most sense. Billabong and Vans always have cool-looking graphics, and the Santa Cruz screaming hand is essential if you want to look like an authentically, effortlessly cool Cali girl.

I also love these pizza shirts, because they speak to my inner fat girl, which I am totally not ashamed of.

Friday's Outfit of the Day: A Jumpsuit for Tall Girls

It's Friday! We made it to San Diego yesterday, and if all goes as planned (since I'm writing this in advance), I am currently either sleeping in or doing some morning yoga, and will have my toes in the sand in approximately two hours.

If you'd like to see my actual OOTD today, head on over to Instagram later on, as I will likely be posting it either on my feed or in my stories. In the meantime, I wanted to share my favorite new jumpsuit with you!

Anti-Trendy Sunglasses

My primary focus in fashion is to wear things that make me feel great while still being comfortable and functional (which I feel is most women's goal). So if a trend doesn't make sense to me, I'm not going to go along with it, much less invest money into it, no matter how popular it is. I feel that this sentiment is particularly relevant to this season's sunglasses.
