When Your Graphic Tees for Adult Women Are Powerful Reminders of Life

Why would graphic tees for adult women be something of interest to you? Because they really can be powerful reminders of what you enjoy about your life.

Quote of the day: “It’s better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.” Sister Elizabeth Kenny

Let me start off by saying this is a sponsored post with Bellelily. I have all of the facts about what that means at the end of the post including why I wanted to work with this company.
As for the quote, it’s one that means more to me the older I get and the more I think about style for all of us. Too many times we fall into the idea that we shouldn’t wear something because of our age. And I keep wanting to rebel against that thought.

This isn’t the first time we’ve explored graphic tees for adult women on this blog. While we might consider the clothing item “too young” for us, I truly think they can be a source of amusement and fun.
Besides you should see some of the fabulous tees that Bellelily has besides the ones we are showcasing. I’ll show them at the bottom of this post.
And make sure to check out the scarves and layering pieces that we showcased also.

Meet Dolly and Lily

To show off our amusing tops, we decided to take Lesley’s pups for a walk around the neighborhood. I am walking Dolly and Lesley is walking Lily. My mom, Charlotte, is sporting her cane from her hip replacement surgery only as a safety measure since these cuties were underfoot.

Yet just because we wore our graphic tees for a casual outing doesn’t mean that’s the only way to wear them. Most of us have many solid colored tees that we wear everywhere. Switching out the solid colored one for a graphic one (especially a graphic one that really speaks to you) gives your outfit a whole different vibe.

AND, graphic tees are the perfect way to add a casual element to any dressier item like a blazer or satin skirt. It’s that yin/yang idea or dichotomy in an outfit that is modern and playful.

Charlotte’s Sunflower Tee

My mom chose this sunflower graphic tee. This could be so perfect for many reasons. If you’ve ever seen some of the quotes about sunflowers, they are quite inspirational. Here are a couple:
“Advice from a sunflower: Be bright, sunny and positive. Spread seeds of happiness. Rise, shine and hold your head high.”
“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It’s what the sunflowers do.”

My mom ordered a medium and said it was true to size for her. She is usually either a small or medium so she went by the measurements given.
She commented that the fabric has a nice feel (they all have some stretch to them which is very nice.)
Because it was a little longer than she prefers, she tied it to shorten it.

Insider tip: My mom used a buckle to tie up her tee. You could either buy a buckle from a crafting store, or remove the buckle from a belt you never wear.

Lesley as a Mom

Lesley is a human mom to two girls, but this t-shirt was super cute since she is also a dog mom. For our outing, she wore it longer as more of a tunic length. (This exact tee is sold out but I’m linking to a grey one or a different one)

She commented that the weight of the tee was great with a good feel and quality. Again, she liked the stretch in it since not all tees have that feature. The color when she ordered it said red, but Lesley thinks it’s more burgundy.

Insider tip: Color is the HUGEST factor that you shouldn’t count on when ordering online. Every computer monitor or phone shows color differently. Yet remember that colors don’t have to MATCH to an outfit. They just have to go together to work.

As for the sizing, Lesley was apprehensive because she would normally get an XL. However, the measurements showed she needed a 3XL. Luckily she went with what the measurements said, and her t-shirt fits wonderfully.

Insider tip: Bellelily does have plus size options up to 3XL (make sure to check the measurements though). You can find them two ways.
1-Under the Clothing tab, you can choose Plus Size.
2-Under the Clothing tab, you can filter by size.

Jodie’s Inspiration Tee

I yearn for more kindness in the world around us, so this graphic tee was exactly what I was looking for.
In case you can’t read the message, it says: “A little more kindness, a little less judgement.”

I ordered a small by the measurements and was happy it was not super tight. Just like my mom, I wanted to shorten it so I used my elastic tie trick.
My only concern is it doesn’t come with washing instructions in it. I see on the website it says polyester but it’s not that shiny, slick polyester. It’s very soft and I think there is some spandex in it for stretch.
I did wash it and put it in the dryer and it didn’t shrink.

BTW, if you think it’s hard to take group photos with the three of us, add in two dogs and see the how it goes, LOL!!

BelleLily Facts

This is a sponsored post with Bellelily meaning the company sent us these graphic tees for adult women and I was paid to write this post. I always appreciate it when small companies support my blog, and they appreciate your support in return. It’s truly a win/win for everyone.

The best part of working with these companies is being able to offer you a discount code.
Use JTSS15 for 15% off your order of $69
or JTSS10 for 10% off your order over $19.
Both of these offers end December 31, 2020 and products are available worldwide.

Personally, I am approached by many companies throughout the year, and am very picky about the ones I work with. I’m always looking for products that fit into our niche and ones I think would be interesting and DIFFERENT (see the quote above) for my readers. I know you already shop at many of the “popular” retail sites, so why not try other ones?
Many times we look at these sites and think the quality isn’t going to be good. Yet after my research and survey about “Does the Cost of Clothing Reflect Quality” and our experience with inexpensive swimsuits, I think it’s good to be more open to some of these sites.

At first glance this company obviously markets to young women. Which is one reason I wanted to work with them. I wanted to prove that if you saw these pieces on women your own age, you might be more prone to try them.
While I was researching this company, there were many reviews good and bad about Bellelily. This fact made me very curious to see how it would be for us. The opinions above are our honest thoughts.

My Goal

Thank you for visiting my space on the internet. I like to showcase how it’s never too late to look great for women of any age, size or working with any budget.
I feel I’m here to help move beyond the fashion rules of yesterday and evolve. Style and clothes are made to give you joy. Not cause us stress because we are worried about what other’s think.

My hope is that you get ideas and inspirations from Charlotte, Lesley and myself. It’s not about copying what we wear, but about using what you already have and updating items along the way.
Most of all it’s getting us to think differently and dare I say, have fun?
