Dressed up: pineapple graphic tee

Have seen this tee?? Yes? How ridiculously cool is it that my little sister DESIGNED IT?!?! Yes! Many moons ago I went to visit Colleen in NYC while she was finishing her summer co-op. It turns out, while she was there, she made this. Seriously. She bought the pineapple, spray painted it gold, styled it for a tee and made it. 

So naturally, when it came out in the spring line this year, I bought it. 

Now, as much as they probably should be, pineapples are not usually a staple in my wardrobe. So when I came home to Ohio a few weeks ago to pack up what remained of my wardrobe, I decided I should find a few ways to style it. & so I've got two outfits! Yay! Today I'll share a dressed up version, tomorrow, a dressed out. Is that a term? "Dressed out" like for going out? Let's roll with it.  

About this outfit: I've always loved the graphic tee to work trend. I try to sneak mine into the office whenever I can. Usually I pair with a blazer and call it "business casual," but in the late summer Ohio heat, that was not an option. Luckily, everything looks business-esque in a black pencil skirt ;D

Funny story: I'm writing this post to you from the Caltrain which is on a NINETY MINUTE DELAY. We've been stranded for over an hour on the tracks. Forgive me if I sound a little bit dazed.... I am. Learning this whole Bay Area Public Transit thing is a daily adventure.
