Transformers + dip-dye

top: Target long time ago, gift // skirt: c/o Persunmall // belt: mom's old belt // shoes: thrifted // earrings: thrifted

My sister gave me this Transformers shirt when I was going through a BIG Transformers kick.
As in: I quoted it all the time, painted Optimus Prime on a bag, started my first blog with multiple posts referencing it, watched it in theaters multiple times, people gave me Transformers gifts cause I talked about it all the time... Oh sophomore year...

{Actually it lasted for way longer than that. I got this shirt after Elijah was born.}

So needless to say, this

I wore it a lot after Elijah was born because it was only the fun thing I could think to throw on when I was feeling ugly and frumpy. After I started to feel better about myself, though, and get my groove back, I kind of put this shirt aside because it brought up all these self-image hating memories.

I pulled it out again recently because I really do love it and thought it would be a fun graphic tee to try and dress up and play with. So when I received this skirt from Persunmall I thought maybe it would be a fun pairing.

And yep, now this is one of my all-time favorite outfits!

I love both of these pieces and they are soooo comfortable!
This skirt has become one of my favorite go-to items and I wear it often.
Which is kind of scary honestly since it's white and I have a toddler... but so far so good.
It's worth the risk.

Elijah does like my Transformers "robot" shirt though so at least I'm winning that way. :)

This post is a bunch of rambling.

Love this outfit! It's so fun. I really like when people mix one dress piece and one casual. Gives the outfit a unique edge.

That's a great t-shirt too by the way.

How much do I love this? I love it. I suddenly feel the need to pair my Karate Kid tshirt with something feminine. Also that skirt rocks.
