The Slogan Tee

Slogan tees have been trending for awhile. I like to choose a slogan that represent me. Usually something artsy or things that I like. A slogan tee should be about you not just a brand. Here are some styling tips for almost every occasion.

WORKWEAR

My workplace recently went jeans-everyday which makes it so easy in the morning but heading into summer I like to wear more dresses – stay tuned for my summer picks! Slogan tees are great and unexpected under suits and with pencil skirts.

 

These tees are both JCrew. The Champagne tee lists different types of sparkling wine -which I love. I paired it with a light pink skirt and ballet flats. I like the retro look of flats with a pencil skirt and it’s comfortable when you’re running to meetings all day. This cream & black tee looks sharp under this black suit and adds some fun – making it look less rigid. Below is a closer look at the slogans.

 

French fries & Italian guys – stuff I love or stuff I should avoid?

For a casual look I like this monochrome look of all bordeaux. This tee has a catch phrase I live by in my work – “creativity has no borders” and has great ruffle and lace details. I could also dress it up with pencil skirt and heels. This Georgia Okeefe quote is also special to me. I saw her show at the AGO a couple of years ago and was so inspired by her work and the way she lived & worked on her own terms. This grey tee I’ve styled with dark denim and tropical print Converse sneakers.

 

Night out or brunch? Here are a couple of options. Chic is the word with this black ruffle sweatshirt. I’ve paired it with this fringe pencil skirt. Texture on texture and a pop of colour with the teal kitten heels. Flower power is a top I snagged on the Joe Fresh clearance rack for $5. I love it with dark denim – especially this Paige denim skirt. I’ve kept the espadrilles in line with the dark denim so the top becomes the show piece.

 

Another important tip about slogan tees – if it seems offensive it probably is so consider another option before wearing it to work or out with friends.

Teal Fashion Week – Wrap up

It’s a wrap on my first ever fundraising campaign. I’m super excited to report that I raised just over $1700. I’m sure my doc and his team the Ovarian Blitzers will be overjoyed to receive this. I enjoyed the creative challenge of combining road hockey with fashion. I know i killed it!!!

Here are some highlights:

A mention and a feature from Ovarian Cancer Canada on World Ovarian Cancer Day. Honoured to stand with other fabulous women bringing awareness and raising funds for this disease.

I love how this before and after story turned out. Incorporating the hockey theme really stretched my creativity and imagination. Teal heels with hockey gear visually summed up the whole story.

If I make this a yearly thing (I totally want too!!!) I will be keeping my eye out for all things teal.

THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who supported this campaign!

World Ovarian Cancer Day

1 year ago I started radiation treatment for Endo-Ovarian cancer. I also started #25days25looks to document my journey and put a positive spin on going to cancer treatment everyday. I wore this teal dress from Anthropologie to one of last appointments Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. I met so many great people there including my doc Marcus Bernardini and this collaboration between fashion and Road Hockey was born. On World Ovarian Cancer Day I’m fundraising for Marcus’ Ovarian Blitzers Road Hockey to conquer cancer team. Please help me reach my goal here.

Day 1 – Teal Fashion Week

It was 1 year ago when I started radiation treatment for Endo-ovarian cancer at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. I also started an awareness campaign 25 Days 25 Looks to show women that cancer diagnosis and treatment does not mean give up.
This year, to support World Ovarian Cancer Day (May 8) I’ve joined forces with the Ovarian Blitzers Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer Team to raise funds all week during TEAL FASHION WEEK.

Please help me reach my goal of $1200 so more women can overcome ovarian cancer. Donate here today.
