saturday style mix – graphic tee + collared shirt

Hey friends and welcome to my new Saturday Style Mix series! This isn’t going to be a weekly series, just more of an every now and again deal. You all know I’m no fashionista. If I was lucky enough to find an extra $50 in my couch cushions (wishful thinking much?), I’d definitely spend it on something for my home to wear over something for me to wear – no question. That being said, I do wear clothes every day. My goal as a mom who blogs from home is to only wear yoga pants on days when I’m actually going to a yoga class, even though my work dress code is pretty lenient. 😉 Because I’d rather put my money into house projects and home decor instead of my wardrobe I try to mix things up creating new looks with articles of clothing I already own. I believe in good basics and a good bargain. And I think if you’re willing to play around a bit, maybe take a fashion risk or two, you can create countless different looks with just a few pieces.
These Saturday Style Mix posts aren’t intended to make you feel like you need to go out and buy something new, but rather to hopefully inspire you to try something new with the clothes you already have. And if you’re only visiting Our Fifth House for the home stuff, no worries, like I said this is not turning into a fashion blog. This is just a fun new every-now-and-again on a Saturday series. Sound good? Okay, let’s dive in then shall we?
I love a good t-shirt, especially a good graphic tee. Casual, comfy go-with-everything t’s are my jam. However, I also love a traditional buttoned down collared shirt. I dig classics. Since winter here in Kentucky won’t allow me to wear a short sleeve tee alone, I layer pairing my two favs together. What do you think? Would you layer a graphic short sleeve tee over a classic collared shirt?

I think it’s a fun combo that helps to keep my t-shirts in the rotation even during the colder months. It’s especially fun when paired with a patterned shirt as the short sleeves really show off the pattern.
Do you like graphic tees? Here are a few favs.
