I don’t know about your local climate, but North Carolina is warming up!! And as the weather is shifting, my wardrobe is following suit. Enter in all of the classic and graphic tees! I’ve collected a few favorites over the years, but I think my tried and true is something loose, boxy, and always a crewneck. As far as the cut, I either swing between a crop or oversized. There’s not much of an in-between, which must mean something? Anyway, I wanted to show you some of my favorite classic crewneck tees and graphic tees!
Starting with this Essential Easy Tee that I have in 3 different colors! You can’t beat the price, and I love the casual everyday fit. So comfy and cute.
Here it is in white!
This black tee is another favorite and is a step up in quality (and price), but well worth it. Slightly different shorter sleeve, which I also love!
Here are so many more that I’ve worn and tested, along with some I have my eyes on.

Graphic tees can be dangerous territory. There are people out there who might quiz if you wear a shirt sporting a band, team, or place. I’m in the camp of “let’s not gatekeep what people wear,” so go ahead and buy the cute Nashville shirt, even if it’s not your favorite place on earth. My graphic tee collection is small and growing, and I’m definitely snagging a few more from the round-up below.
1. Mont-Blanc Oversized T-shirt $12

7. Yellowstone Graphic Tee $34 (Have this in a long sleeve. Abercrombie tees all day–so soft!)
8. Nike T-shirt $35
9. Nashville Graphic Tee $44
10. Pittsburgh Steelers Tee $50
11. Cannes Tee $55
12. Cosmic Heart Graphic Tee $68

Love these Graphic Tees! They are one of my favourite things to wear during the summer!
Is the essential easy tee true to size? I’m usually an XS but I’d like it to not be too fitted. Love the fit on you!
So helpful! Would love if you did a round up of favorite crewneck sweatshirts!
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
