Chic Happens

I hope I'm not speaking too soon, but I think that spring is here to stay. Even though it officially arrived a few weeks ago, we've had a lot of cold, rainy, and at times snowy weather over the past couple weeks (wah wah wahhhh.) But this weekend has been absolutely "gorg ba-george" (as Nick would say), so it is time to retire my tights and boots and pull out the skirts and straw hats!

This weekend I couldn't resist throwing on a cute spring outfit to enjoy the beautiful weather here in the Burgh. Today was extra special because I finally got to wear my super adorable and equally cozy "Chic Happens" t-shirt from Rosewood Boutique in Sewickley (a suburb of Pittsburgh). When Rosewood Boutique reached out to me about their ChicSeams t-shirt of the month club I was so excited - what's better than a custom-designed, incredibly soft, one of a kind t-shirt delivered to your door each month?

I think we can all agree that one of the best parts about ordering clothes online is the excitement of getting to open up the box when it arrives at your door. Take that excitement and multiply it by 10, because that's how excited I was when I saw how adorably packaged my ChicSeams t-shirt came from boutique owner Kathryn Richardson. Kathryn even sent a pretty, gold bar necklace and a personal thank you note!

The ChicSeams t-shirt club offers a different, custom designed t-shirt every month with cute sayings, stylish graphics, and seasonal designs (like a chic 4th of July shirt!) Signing up is super easy and when you do, you'll receive that pretty gold bar necklace pictured above! In addition, ChicSeams subscribers will receive their shirts for $20 less than the in-store price. That's a pretty good deal if you ask me! In order to receive this Chic Happens shirt, make sure you sign up by April 30th!

I paired my Chic Happens t-shirt with a lightweight, dark green skirt (with pockets!) that's been in my closet for a few years now. My favorite shoes are hands down my Minnetonka moccasins. They're almost on their last leg (they're 7 years old now!), but I don't think I will ever part with them.

The hat, the shades, and the green bag have all been on the blog before, but I just like them all so much that you get to see them again! Wearing this hat makes me long for outdoor concerts, sitting in the grass with a beer in hand... ahhh!
