College Tee

Cupcakes and Cashmere is one of my daily reads - I always look forward to my morning cup of coffee with a side of inspiration. Earlier this year, Emily had a post about sentimental articles of clothing and it got me thinking about which piece of my wardrobe I would choose. I landed on my first Florida State t-shirt.

I was anxiously awaiting to find out if I had been accepted into my dream university and the results were revealed online at midnight. My parents and I were huddled around the computer waiting for the clock to strike 12. As soon as I read the word "accepted" the three of us began screaming in celebration! My mom came in with a gift bag full of goodies including a mini coffee pot for my future dorm room, a Seminole mug, and this FSU tee.

It has since faded and the logo has cracked, but every time I wear it I am reminded of that exciting night, which was a pivotal moment in the path of my life. Those four years in Tallahassee not only gave me an amazing education, but it's where I gained my independence, met some of my closest friends, fell in love with Greg, and led me to my career.

I usually wear this t-shirt lounging around the house, so for this outfit post I wanted to add a little edge. Paired with a leather mini skirt & leopard ankle booties, my college tee is far from tom-boy casual.
