7 Ways to Wear the THRIVING Tee

Happy MONDAY – are you thriving or simply surviving? I sure hope you’re thriving, or at least halfway there with a cuppa coffee to boot – and if not, there’s a tee that might help. 😉 ICYMI, the THRIVING Collection is here – a merch line inspired by the THRIVE podcast! It’s a curation of 7 carefully chosen pieces (six of which were designed by me! Ah!) to help you easily + effortlessly elevate your everyday. From the best tumbler cup on the planet to an embroidered hat for the days you’re too busy running your world to shampoo your hair, I like to think we’ve got a little bit of everything for everybody. 🙂 Of course, an essential in every girl’s closet is a basic white t-shirt. They’re a solid staple to wear solo, to layer, to just live your best life. You probably know I’m big on finding the best white t-shirts since I find myself throwing one on at LEAST once a week, so it was important to me to find a *fabulous* option for the THRIVING Collection.

And…here we are! The THRIVING Tee. A relaxed fit, cotton-polyster blend white t-shirt that’s already getting rave reviews from those of you who have snagged one so far – which makes my heart so, so happy. 🙂 It comes in Sixes S-2XL and fits true to size. And beyond your basic graphic tee, the THRIVING tee text is embroidered for a more chic look. It’s $26 with FREE shipping, so I hope you are able to pick one up if you lovelovelove it, and that it becomes a new frequented favorite in your closet!

Today, I just wanted to share a few ways I’ve worn it so far, in case you’re looking for a little outfit inspiration for how to wear yours.

The THRIVING Tee - the THRIVING Collection on Coming Up Roses

As seen in what is basically the CUR Christmas card – ha! 😉 A totally classic vibe: a white tee with denim. Personally, I think the embroidered text looks that much better paired with an otherwise “basic” look like these since it really elevates the entire thing to the next level.


Wore this last week – an easy, fun summer vibe! My exact shorts are old from Walmart, but I also have these from LOFT that are super similar + feel great!


YES, you can wear your THRIVING tee to work! Or church! This felt very 9-to-5 friendly to me, or a good option for my teacher friends in da house. 🙂 An easy way to dress up your new favorite tee!


The THRIVING Collection - on Coming Up Roses

Very casual, very me. Also pairable with the THRIVING baseball hat, of course! And if you’re in need of new joggers, these are actually in the Nordstrom Sale right now – they’re great! I got mine in last year’s sale and wear them constantly.


Who’s ready for fall?? *raises hand wildly* Layer it with your favorite denim jacket once it starts cooling down outside for an effortless transitional look.


Of course, the THRIVING tee is good for a solid athleisure vibe. Best paired with the baseball hat AND the cup for the best day ever.


And because I’m dreaming of Disney…the THRIVING tee does DISNEY, too! Because who isn’t thriving at the happiest place on Earth?! If only I could just hop on a flight and head down to Main Street…#dreams.


PRO TIP: Your tee comes with a bit of a protective patch behind the embroidered text. It’s a bigger rectangular patch that you can just trim down to be closer to the edge of the text – no worries, you won’t mess up the embroidery or anything! I recommend doing this so that the patch outline is not visible at all through the shirt. The tee is NOT see through at all (that’s a pet peeve of mine!), but you could see the patch edge if it’s pressed right up against your chest when wearing. Here’s how it will look inside out when it arrives (on the right) versus how I recommend trimming down to get that perfect look (on the left)!

How will you wear your THRIVING tee?

I hope you lovelovelove it – can’t wait to see you rocking yours!
