Nobody’s Perfect

I found this shirt at J.Crew the other day when my Christmas money was burning a hole in my pocket. (It lasted 5 days. That might be a new record.) I think this tee was made for me. Perfection is a burden that I try not to carry. What is that saying? Perfection is boring. That is a very true statement, although currently I’m rocking some very well-hidden adult acne and I’d really like if my skin could strive to be boring. That would be great.


The next tee J.Crew needs to make is “yes, these heels do hurt” and “but coffee first” I will be able to wear all of my motto’s in t-shirt form. Also remember when I said that bold earrings are in this year in my last post? Is this actually true or did I just want you to think I was cool? You may never know.


tee: J.Crew

blazer: bloom

pants: J.Crew

heels: Similar

bag: Kelly Wynne

earrings: similar

sunnies: old Coach / Similar

  6. The earrings pop the outfit and ties it together very nicely! I'm guilty of the same perfection burden so my motto is 'no such thing as perfect'! You're other two mottos are mine too! I hope JCrew's reading this and going to print ASAP!!

  28. Ha! It worked. I think you are cool and I feel better about myself for my love of statement earrings. My aunt and I have been rocking them for years. The bigger, the better – she calls them "ear trash."

    That's a fun tee and the way you've styled it is even better! I'm so happy bold earrings are going to have a big come back, cause I'm a fan of those! J Crew should be definitely making those tees soon, they'd be a hit!

  43. I want a series of t-shirts with things I constantly say in my classroom, but I'm pretty sure my students would be sick of that. Love the earrings! My lobes would have rebelled against me the second I put those on. They're wimps when it comes to big earrings. My t-shirt right now says, "Jealous of your earrings."
