The Tee-Shirt With Attitude

Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully

We’re all about “the basics” over here at Sometimes Gracefully. Blue jeans and a comfy tee-shirt kind of basic. Old Navy has an awesome collection of soft and breezy tee-shirts for the summer, and this “Paris” tee was impossible to pass up. Can tee-shirts have attitudes? I feel like this tee-shirt has a too-cool-for-school, lean against a brick wall like James Dean, raise one eyebrow with a serious face and say “Duh. Paris.” kind of attitude.

Maybe it’s the bold print? The simple detail?

It’s basic. It’s Paris. It’s duh.

Speaking of attitudes, Darrin and I got to play with a five month old baby the other day who had the cutest amount of baby pudge and the giggliest little attitude. He’d roll on his back and giggle. Bounce in his bouncer and giggle. Spit up on his dad and giggle. He had a little bit of trouble interpreting Darrin’s bright red hair…he’d stare at me {and giggle}, then stare at Darrin and raise one questioning eyebrow. He just didn’t know what to do with it. And I was melting. I had my “Ohmygosh Darrin can we get one pleaseohpleaseohplease?!” face on. Whenever Darrin sees that face, he just shakes his head at me and smiles. I’ll be honest. Pudgy, giggling babies that make inquisitive faces at Darrin are my weakness, you guys. The kind of weakness that would get me “to talk” if I was a cartoon spy being tortured by an evil villain. “You leave us no choice, Gracie…Henchman! Bring out the cute and pudgy baby!”


Well, I suppose that when you start imagining yourself in cartoon situations it’s probably best to end your blog post. Here’s the moral: Basics and babies are the best.

Three cheers for alliteration.

Have a great Wednesday! More awesome tees from Old Navy below!
