The Home T




"There is no place like home." California is my home. I can't imagine living anywhere else. My whole Brady Bunch family lives in CA (I have a thousand aunts, uncles, cousins, cross cousins, relatives, etc). And when we get together....it's like a zoo. And I wouldn't have it any other way. I also love the climate in Southern CA (mild winters and hot summers). I love the beaches. I love how everyone is always in a rush (cause I am too lol). I love how we speed walk in the malls (so guilty). I could do without the traffic, road rage, and posh Hollywood scene, but hey....we're not perfect. I can't think of a better way to sport my home pride than with my new Home. T. It's insanely soft and comfortable and has been styled by many fabulous bloggers including Jacey, Caroline, and Samantha. But more importantly, when you buy this t-shirt, a portion of the profits are donated to Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Research. A stylish way to show your state pride and support a good cause....it's a win-win situation, folks! 

I'm also sporting some new arm candy (and I love it) (finally). Anyways, that's all for today! Thanks for stopping by :)!

  7. Can you believe that I have never been to CA? I want to go so badly! It seems like anytime we take a trip, we just go on a cruise. We need to start planning trips around to other states. I love this t-shirt and I love the entire look.

  18. Looooove these tees. The only reason I haven't bought one yet is because I can't decide which one I should get - Illinois is my birthplace and "home" but Wisconsin is my college "home" and I love it! Guess I should get both? haha. Love the pairing of the tee with the white blazer!

  26. Lady, red is such a fantastic color on you! You should sport red lipstick all the time. It pops beautifully against your skin and awesome hair. I love that purse and can't believe it's from Forever and adore that t-shirt. I feel the same way about this crazy kooky awesome state we live in. So, in sum, this outfit is one of my favorites - it's tough and chic and put together with just enough the right amount of girly edginess.

    I've been staying away from white blazers because I'm not sure how to incorporate them into my closet. I love you've styled it.

    Hope you're having a great week!

  31. Your accessories are just perfect! I moved recently, but feel like my current state isn't my home, and my 'home state' isn't my home anymore either. Maybe they should make an alternative print, of some abstract shape (or one of a house, haha).
