Oh my goodness guys I’m so stoked for this week’s feature. As you all know I really enjoy rocking the pinup/rockabilly look, but unfortunately that style can be a bit too dressy. Now I’ve actually come to the point where I no longer care about people thinking I’m too dressy, but some day’s I’d prefer to be a little more chill, and what is more chill than a t-shirt? Well I’ll tell you, a t-shirt from Atomic Swag Apparel. I’m not sure I’ve ever worn a more delightfully soft shirt, seriously it’s like wrapping yourself in your favorite cozy blanket…except these bad boys are way more stylish than walking around wearing a blanket.
Atomic swag’s shirt designs are just fabulous and could fit anyone’s taste, men included, this post isn’t just for the ladies. The different styles offered range from rockabilly, motorcycle, state, to hotrod racing t-shirts and all these designs are printed on 100% cotton t-shirts using waterbased inks so they won’t chip, peel, or fade. Huzzah for excellent quality! Looking good isn’t enough, I need style and quality and Atomic Swag certainly delivers on both accounts.
Shirt: Atomic Swag Apparel I just love how delightfully cheeky the design on this shirt is don’t you? I’m just so pleased with this soon to be “overworn” piece. Since I’m a pinup and a Texan I’ve always had a bit of a softspot for pinup cowgirls and this shirt could not combine those two styles more perfectly.
and of course I had to do the pistol hands dance
Seemed like an appropriate sign to stand under 😉
Shirt: Atomic Swag Apparel Oh my word, I didn’t even know it was possible to love a shirt this much you guys. I have a ridiculous amount of state pride and if you’re a fellow Texan you know what I’m talking about, this shirt could not be more perfect! The cream colored background, the vintage soft feel, and the Texas design just combine so beautifully and I am not even a little sorry about how much I am going to wear this shirt. It’s a Texas thing Ya’ll 😉
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you get yourself some Atomic Swag gear…In fact both the lovely people at Atomic Swag and myself so badly want you to experience their brilliant combo of style and comfort that we have a 20% off discount code for you to use, its sarahforshaw20. So what are you waiting for? You’ve got a discount code and everything, this could be the smartest decision you make all weekend.
Happy Friday my loves!
Let me clarify that this is a “Texas fall look” we’re not as lucky as you people who are getting to wear tights, cardigans, and the like. It’s still in the 80’s here but after 100+ this feels pretty darn nice. So here’s the look.
Ermagerd Permpkins! You guys pumpkins mean it’s fall! Clearly that makes me outrageously happy!
Basically this entire look is from older items in my closet so just assume the links you are getting are not the exact thing.
White Blouse: Cotton On. http://www.charlotterusse.com/product/entity/229487.uts
Black Undershirt: Stole it from my sister but H&M has inexpensive undershirts http://www.hm.com/us/product/13795?article=13795-E#article=13795-A
Belt: Not sure where I got it. Here are two options one being H&M http://www.hm.com/us/product/14881?article=14881-A or the cheaper alternative Forever 21 http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=acc_belts&ProductID=2020523428&VariantID=

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a wonderful weekend.
As many of you may have noticed a good deal of my wardrobe is from Cotton On. But can you really blame me? Their clothes are always beautiful, they constantly have sales, and not the trickster kind of sales where you actually aren’t saving money but honest to goodness sales, and they are an awesome company that has a true sense of responsibility, you can find out all about the Cotton On Foundation here to learn all about the way they are improving the world and helping others http://www.cottononfoundation.org/ but what I think is really great they make it incredibly easy for customers to make donations right at the checkout! No fussy paperwork to fill out no lifetime commitments have to be made, you can just make a donation then and there.
Headwrap: Its just a ribbon I pulled out of my ribbon box but Top Shop has a cute alternative http://us.topshop.com/en/tsus/product/bags-accessories-1702229/hair-accessories-70519/headbands-70691/polka-dot-wire-headband-136848?refinements=category~%5b210046%7c208709%5d&bi=1&ps=20 and so does claires http://www.claires.com/store/us/goods/hair/cat1260198/headbands/p54519/polka+dot+knotted+fabric+headband/
Umbrella: Target http://www.target.com/p/totes-clear-bubble-umbrella-silver-trim/-/A-10780081#prodSlot=medium_1_6&term=clear+umbrella
Blouse: Cotton On I bought mine on clearance so I couldn’t find the link to the exact one I am wearing so you can check your local Cotton On’s sales rack or buy this similar blouse http://shop.cottonon.com/shop/product/katja-s/l-shirt-white/
Midi rings: Forever 21 http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?Br=F21&Category=ACC&ProductID=1040665778&VariantID=
Swing skirt: Cotton On http://us.cottonon.com/shop/product/jeanie-flippy-skirt-black/ They’re currently having a sale on these and you can get 2 for $20! This is one of my favorite cuts for a skirt, they’re slightly longer in the back which is great for modesty’s sake and the have shape that gives a nod to the 50’s which I adore. I could honestly buy one in every color!
Boots: Atwoods. Now Atwoods is a country supply store so they don’t have a website to order from, so you can either see if one is near you, or buy some similar ones from Sheplers http://www.sheplers.com/Old-West-Jama-Basic-Western-Cowgirl-Boots-Medium-Toe/21879.pro?parentCategoryId=448&categoryId=459&subCategoryId=460 these are one sale for $54.99 which is practically unheard of when talking about cowboy boots. I’ve seen some boots that cost more than an actual horse! So these are quite the bargain 😉
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a happy Friday!
So I may or may not keep up with another outfit post but it’s worth a shot. This outfit I wore on Sunday for a quiet girls night out. Me and some of my lovely friends went to dinner then onto see Star Trek Into Darkness, which is a crazy awesome movie! Benedict Cumberbatch is incredible as Khan. I decided to go with a fresh faced not too fussy outfit and I think this was the perfect balance of style and comfort.
My absolute favorite thing about this dress has got to be the opening in the back!
Earrings: Cracker barrel, you can find just about everything there!
Flower: I bought it at the dollar store.
Dress: Cotton On http://us.cottonon.com/search/?q=raven+vintage+dress couldn’t find the print I’m wearing, but the other prints are gorgeous and this baby is on sale for only $10!
Hope you all enjoyed the post! Have a happy Wednesday.
