Aged Awesomeness & One Shirt Three Ways

I will be back with Part 3 of the Teacher Wardrobe Staples series (Part 1 and Part 2) tomorrow. Why, you ask? Well, first of all, today is my 29th birthday. Second of all, today, Momma dukes is actually taking pictures of me for Part 3! With a real camera, not my iPhone. Hot jeebus. I.have.arrived.

Instead of the series today, I do have one shirt worn three ways for you. Because my awesomeness just added another year to itself.

Every time I buy an item I'm a smidge unsure of, I physically try it on with at least three outfits in order to determine its lifespan in my closet. Sometimes, I'm on fire and can't stop trying it on with things. Aaaand, sometimes, it's a big, fat flop that I have to return. Luckily, this shirt is a winner.

I bought an army green shirt at Kohl's the other day, hoping it would work well in my closet. I'd say it does. I came up with these three looks:

It's not much, and the pictures are, um, awful. HOWEVER, you might find inspiration from them. If nothing else, you'll take your iPhone photos in a full-length mirror in better lighting. 
(The color is "true" in the middle picture.) 
I'd love to know how you would style this shirt. Tell me in the comments! :)

I had every intent of writing you a list of "29 Things of Awesomeness," but I lost steam after #7. 
I need a shower because I do not smell awesome.
So, I will leave you with this thought: I am not 29-years-old; I am 29 years of awesome. 
 Aged awesomeness, if you will.

That is all.

P.S. Be sure to enter the Target giveaway over at Sam's hilarious blog
She's one of those makes-you-pee-a-little-she's-so-funny kind of girls. 


  1. Happy Birthday! I have a similar shirt, and have worn it tucked into white shorts and tied over a striped maxi skirt.

  2. Happy Birthday! Love the shirt over the lace dress. I would have only thought to style it with khaki pants or skirt

  3. Happy birthday!! I love the neutral ways you've style this shirt! I also really like olive/army green with pink or purple.

  4. I hope you win! And then we can go to Target and get you some Depends! :P Army/olive green is myyyy faaaavvooorrriiittteee. My mom called me out last weekend - "do you reeeeeally need more green?" YES MOM. I DO.
