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.
