How To Rock A Souvenir T-Shirt After Your Vacation

Since coming back from our trip and going through the wardrobe I shipped to my parent’s house when we moved out of our apartment in Korea, I’ve come to realize I have basically no clothes left.

I had this moment of insanity when we were packing up our life into boxes AGAIN earlier this year and I just about donated everything that I owned.

“I don’t need this” I kept saying as I tossed yet another cute shirt/skirt/pair of jeans into a pile to put in the donation boxes.

I felt burdened by all my stuff and I just wanted to get rid of it.

Now that I’m back I’m stuck with a pair of jeans, a few dresses that I bought in Bangkok and the souvenir t-shirts I collected during our trip.

Some are destined for the gym, others may not even be allowed out of the house. But I snagged a few with life in mind and here’s how I’ve styled them.

I feel like I can’t take credit for this look. I stole it from a girl I met while we were in Thailand. She had a cute flowy skirt on and a souvenir t-shirt from some random place I’ve never heard of. Her shirt was cropped and it looked so damn cute I was annoyed I didn’t buy myself some child-sized shirts to pull off the same look (I’m not even joking).

My shirt is a small. I wanted to make sure it was really fitted. If it’s baggy or too big it will be too hard to wear. I tucked it into a simple black cotton skirt and added my green Guess wedges and Zara leather jacket (not similar, but way cuter). Topped it all off with a red lip crayon from Ulta (in Glamour).

Same shirt as above, worse face since I don’t know how to take myself seriously when posing for photos of myself (soooo awkward). This is one of my favorites and one I feel like I would wear a lot more often, especially as we come into the cooler weather.

Nice fitted tshirt with tweed blazer from Jcrew (similar styles are always in store), no brand skinny jeans I bought in Korea and Michael Kors patent leather Oxford heels that I bought about 10 years ago from DSW and have never actually worn (am I the only one that’s done this?). Cheesy sunglasses and an old pink lip from Mary Kay to finish (similar one here).

Is this boho? I don’t know, but someone on Instagram told me it was, so I’m going with it (Instagram is never wrong). It’s been so warm lately, so I tossed on my Cambodia t-shirt – not as tight as the Thailand T, but still a slim fit – with a pair of jean shorts that I made out of a pair of Luke’s old skinny jeans, boots I bought in Vietnam and an old Ralph Lauren sweater found in TJ Maxx.
