Most of the stuff went to my little brother, but there was a shirt I had to have.

Black shirt, white print. It said, “Baker/Ride or Die” and I just loved wearing it. Baker is (or was?) a skateboard company, and I don’t skateboard. But I’ve always wished I could.

The shirt made for great conversation — “what’s Baker?” from non-skaters and “you skateboard?!?” from skaters. It gave me a chance to talk about how I wished I could skateboard, and somehow made me feel like I was very hardcore (even though I was a total wannabe and did not “ride or die”). :)

Have you checked out Everlane yet? They have very high quality yet dare we say cheap t-shirts – no branding to be seen but the tag.

Crew, Carter’s and Circo/Target. Yesterday at Target I got him a bright blue one with five different kinds of mustaches to honor Movember ;)

I’d love to find fun t-shirts in adult sizes too! Anyone know where I could start looking?

If Old Navy wants me to advertise for them they’ll have to pay ME.

(that said, my kids have several “branded” shirts they got as hand me downs, and I don’t have a problem with them wearing them…because I didn’t pay for them. :))

I just don’t get it. Although working in a junior high I see this with kids all the time, and I get it at that age…but the kids with flair, that stand out are the “artsy” ones who dress their own way, and look confident while doing so. Too bad we as a culture don’t have this acceptance and inner strength projecting to the world. ♥

I guess I enjoy reading others’ shirts. HOWEVER, I cannot stand brands being advertised for free, especially on my children’s clothing. I try to get creative and cover up the brand name, which is usually a hand-me-down or thrift buy anyhow.

Especially with my children’s clothes. I go to great lengths to find sweatshirts that don’t scream “I BOUGHT THIS AT . . . ” for my 3 boys. Just give me good, fleecy, navy comfort with a zipper and hood. That’s all I need.

In case you haven’t seen Game of Thrones, “Khaleesi” means queen in Dothraki (google it…would take too long to explain). I LOVE that shirt and want to wear it all the time even though I feel like I’m promoting a show.
