Happy Friday, Ladies! Friday really means something after my the first week of school. Frankly, I’m exhausted! (If you’re wondering what I wore, see here.)
One thing I definitely did not wear it this funky tee I bought on our trip to LA last month!
Isn’t it fun? A guy onsite at a little boutique on Melrose takes old concert tees and adds the laces and distressed look.
I styled it in a weekend look with cropped jeans, Vans, and my new fav sunglasses, Illesteva Leonard 2
Thank God the first week of school is (almost) over!
Time for the weekend, downtime, and dog time! And of course, fashion link up fun!

Very cool tee! I've enjoyed having practically no concept of time whatsoever this summer, so as you mentioned it will be weird in a week when Fridays and weekends actually mean something! Thanks for hosting and enjoy your well deserved weekend!
That's right you're a fellow teacher so you know how exhausting the first week back is. 🙂
What a fun tee! Love it!
Hope you'll have a relaxing weekend!
