How We Style It: Vintage Tees

I will admit that I have been stealing my mom's style for some time now. From the cigarette pants and loafers I was wearing just yesterday, I'm pretty much a carbon copy. Judging by these pics of Bonni, Allison's mom, I'd say she's in the same boat. So when my mom finally handed down her t-shirt from the bar she worked at in college, you can imagine my joy. See, not only have I been lusting after the t-shirt for years, BUT as my mother also went to Miami and its from a bar that I frequented on many occasions. I may or may not have spent my 21st birthday there.

While I do cherish the t-shirt and rarely wear it as I want to preserve it as long as possible, I can't resist busting it out for special occasions. I can think of no more special occasion than a photoshoot with my long-lost friend PJ Jannuzzi, whose fab photography skills you can see in this post. 

For both looks I paired the t-shirt with bold necklaces and jeans. One more dressy and one more casual, I love the versatility the t-shirt provides. I had hoped Allison would pair hers with a maxi skirt and she did! She looks so cool- especially in the pic on the curb. Check out the full looks below and let us know- how do you style YOUR vintage t-shirts?!
