One Element of Personal Style that I've come to classify as important is the ability to create fool-proof, easy, comfortable, stylish, and personal outfits that are easy to put on in the morning. A while back I discussed what to do when you have nothing to wear, and as a continuation of that philosophy, I present another outfit recipe I use regularly: the graphic tee + skirt + boots.

This weekend, my dance company and I performed at a jazz and tap "festival," if you will, and this particular festival always has great tee shirts that are more than your average throw-on-the-closet-floor-and-collect-dust-tees. I sometimes find myself gravitating to graphic tees, (generally of the rock concert, old-worn-out-vintage-wash, or Eiffel Tower printed sort...) probably because I'm obsessed with a style created around styling the low with the high-in. (Gap jeans and Tiffany diamonds. Or Rocker tee and smart pencil skirt.) The fact is I wanted to wear my cool new tee shirt featuring eminent tappers without succumbing to the denim-and-tee-shirt look. I paired my tee with a high-waisted skirt, my favorite boots, and created interest with a scarf tied around my wrist.
