The Garrott Tee: Look #3-Weekend Warrior

We're 3 weeks/3 looks deep into the Garrott Design Tshirt Challenge.
Ok its not a HUGE challenge, just a bit of a riddle of sorts--just how will I wear my tshirt differently this week from last week?  What can I do to keep it out of jeans, tshirt, tennis shoes territory?

This time around, I present to you (my signature clothing item of course-the cutoff shorts) what I call
"Weekend Warrior"
It was only a matter of time till I showed you all how I would pair the Garrott Tshirt up with my favorite bottoms--my white trash denim cut-offs
I once mentioned way back in September that these babies were being retired for the season...yeah right!  Who did I think I was, and whom did I think I was fooling?  Toss on some tights or leggings underneath and they're as good to go anywhere as I thought they were this summer.
(to which I laugh thinking of all the higher-brow establishments, and tons of lowbrow places, I wore them to as if both called for equal dress)

Cut-offs, with leggings in my case, add a little extra spunk and quirkiness to the Garrott Tee, especially great for a Sunday of errands, and dinner, and then a show.
(the dinner=high brow, the show=lowbrow...and I was just fine in both settings-I'm a chameleon like that).
To add to the spunkiness of the shorts with the Garrott Tee,
I though it almost necessary to show you
some color...some pops of interest here and there
The last two looks were pale and mostly tones of grays and black with the exception of the blushy colored skirt of Look #1

Plus, on the weekends, why not get a little punchy with the bright tones?  The weekends are my time, I don't have to impress anyone but myself...therefore I wear what I like, not always what's "appropriate".  Sometimes too much color of different sorts can overwhelm at the office persay,
but weekends-nothing holds me back.

It's still a wee bit chilly considering its only February, so I went with a slouchly long cardigan-lightweight however and a bold shot of juicy goodness in the form of my Poppy/coach bag.  (it always manages to make any outfit pop...heh heh, maybe why its POPPY??? probably not.--but on a side note, I do like that I just said "heh heh" as if my name is Beavis-gah, can't wait for the return of Beavis and Butthead on MTV!)
And on that note, I think I need to exit this blog.  I am all over the place, being spastic, writing whatever gibberish pops into my brain...seriously, why jump from "color" talk to "Beavis and Butthead"?
Adult ADD!

So kids, as always, I challenge you to style up a tshirt in an interesting way, or get the Garrott Tee (only $20) for yourself; show me how you'd do it up right.
