Carrie Bradshaw did it first, and all these years later, a Mickey Mouse t-shirt is still so much more than a souvenir... it's become a fashion symbol! One popular way to wear it is with a pencil skirt, like my inspiration photos above. I realize this may not be the everyday woman's first choice for the office, however, it's a clever way to incorporate a team shirt for spirit day (or the like) - by adding a pencil skirt, heels and layering statement necklaces to dress it up.

Another idea for wearing a Mickey tee (or really any graphic tee) is by pairing it with patch denim and studded leather - two of the biggest trends for fall. This look is totally over the top and yet totally laid back and casual. Will be wearing this one for a travel day when the weather cools off!

How would you wear this trend? Which outfit do you like better?

Over the weekend I was inspired to pair my favorite halter sweater with denim shorts for a simple look. So far I've worn this top with a colorful kimono and ankle boots in Cinque Terre, and with a leather jacket and slides at Nascar. It's been super hot in Orlando lately, so my third look with this top is a better fit for the warmer weather, but arguably still packs just as much panache!

We snapped these photos after church yesterday! It's a pretty chill place, so I usually try to strike a balance of "looking nice" but also keeping it casual. I'm perpetually slow moving in the morning and no good at coming up with outfit ideas under those conditions, but I've learned from my mistakes and now refer back to brainstorming sessions I had when I was in my right mind. (I save ideas on my phone and then scroll through them when I need to get dressed.) After my first outfit with this pineapple print top last month, I challenged myself to find a way to wear it with a skirt and wound up really liking this color/print combination, especially with the denim jacket!
