Happy Monday and happy October! It’s officially cooling down here in California (finally) and I am so excited to share so many fun events happening this month! The hubby and I have three trips planned (Hawaii, San Diego and Disneyland), and I’m celebrating Uniquely Julz’s one year anniversary on the 16th as well! Talk about a jammed packed month! Woohoo!

One of the most exciting parts of starting a blog has been meeting fellow bloggers who share your same passion and creative mind. I have been truly blown away by the blogging community and support I’ve received from so many readers. It really means the world.
Today, I am so excited to team up with my girl, Brittani Friedman of By Brittani Lauren to show you two ways to style a basic tee. This was a super fun project I couldn’t wait to share with you! Brittani and I actually attended the University of Arizona together, and were in the same recruitment group when we went through rush back in 2008 (OMG we’re so old). We were grouped by last name (her’s starts with F and mine G) so we were naturally placed in the same group. Fast forward almost 10 years, and here we are! Having that commonality has made this huge, overwhelming blogging world feel a little more like home. If you haven’t checked out her style, you MUST!! She makes modern trends look so effortless. Check our her Instagram here.

Graphic tees are a huge trend right now, and we are seeing them styled in so many different ways. Brittani and I decided to both purchase the same ‘basic’ tee and style it with our own personal flare. Firstly, this tee is SO COMFY! You know how some tees can be stiff and itchy? This one is made of a high-quality cotton that I could seriously wear all day and night!
I love how Brittani styled it with black pants and black booties. Talk about making it look easy! These booties have been a favorite of mine and never go out of style! I love the peep toe and you could easily style them with pants or a dress with tights. Brittani seriously rocks the must-have basic trends and even wore a great bomber jacket with this look as well! To see more on how she styled it, visit her blog here.
I decided to style this tee a little differently. You know I love me some sparkle, so I paired it with a beautiful satin gold midi skirt. AND it’s only $45!!! Yassss #addtocart!! You will definitely see this skirt make an appearance during the holidays. And stawwwwp, can we chat about these shoes? Originally, I wanted them in black but the minute I saw they came in red… well that just made the decision super easy. I love the pointed toe and kitten heel. They make the legs look soooo good, am I right ladies?! I generally wear a size 5.5, but bought a size 6. I would definitely recommend sizing a half size up. Pair them with a sassy red lip and you have the perfect look for any holiday event/party this season!
As always, I super appreciate your continued support and love! Comment with any questions! ((xoxo))
