Let’s Talk Tees – (I always) Rise + Shine

Yesterday I launched my 5th collection of tees + tanks. This line of tees has been (by far) the best selling and I'm not going to lie - I'm pretty stoked about that. 

I decided I wanted to share the details + inspiration behind the Summer '17 Collection with you. Let’s get started.

I always Rise + Shine

The inspiration behind this tee comes from the belief that we are not our circumstances. We are not defined by our hardships or shortcomings. We are ultimately the product of pushing through the most difficult and trying moments, hours, days and weeks of our lives. We are not only surviving but we are thriving. Kind of like that saying..."You have survived 100% of your worst days". Humans are incredibly resilient. Take a minute and think about it...to this date, there is nothing you have NOT survived. 

I was then drawn to polish this tee off with a wolf howling to the moon. I find this to be very symbolic of strength, communication and determination. Wolves are dedicated survivors, quite like most of us.  

This tee was also inspired by my mom. Growing up she would always wake me by singing ‘risssse and shinnnnnnne”.  I can still hear her bubbly voice happily chirping away and the smell of her French vanilla coffee like it was yesterday. 

I really can’t express to you how thankful and gracious I am to hear all of your kind + generous words. Your enthusiasm and kindness does not go unrecognized or unappreciated. Be sure to check back to get the scoop on the other Summer 2017 tees!
