New York Effing City

by Jessica Sturdy on March 27, 2013

New York Friggen City. I wanted to get Hallie a cheeky little “Welcome to New York” gift and stumbled across this tee. Obviously had to get one for myself, too! 😉

A bit more R-rated than my last New York City tee, no?

PS – How shocked are you that I’m wearing black & white?! This classic combo has been on repeat lately — one / two / three / four

Graphic Tee / gifted Karen Kane Jacket / AG White Denim / Zara Sandals (last year, updated version here) / gifted Milly Clutch (on sale!) / Marc By Marc Jacobs Watch (similar options here & here) / Sequin Leopard Bangle / Zara Necklace (best $30 I’ve spent in a long time!)

PS – Linked up this look to BDIB!

Now, head over to corals + cognacs to see how Hallie styled her tee! It’s kind of like we switched styles.. She’s in sequins and I’m rocking a more edgy look!

I love this – you look so cute in the first photo! Haha, I like that you have it obscured by the blazer. … gotta have a way to cover it when you walk past kids I guess 😉


Rachel March 27, 2013 at 8:12 am

haha what a fun shirt! Love the striped blazer, too!


Ashley March 27, 2013 at 8:37 am

Ha! I love this! You always look so prim and proper but little did we know 😉


Emily March 27, 2013 at 9:34 am

I looove that black Marc Jacobs watch!! Too bad it’s sold out on the website. And that NYC shirt looks awesome tied into the whole outfit. Love it!


Jessica Sturdy March 27, 2013 at 9:43 am

Just updated the links above! :)


Alissa March 27, 2013 at 9:35 am

Oh my god that top is freaking fantastic! I LOVE the contrast of the top with the super classic outfit. Totally ladylike with a surprise!


Preppy Panache March 27, 2013 at 9:36 am

Hahaha LOVE the tee :)


Olivia March 27, 2013 at 9:48 am

I’m OBSESSED with your NY tee! I have a pair of AG white jeans too, and they might be the most comfortable things ever!


Alison March 27, 2013 at 10:08 am

This is too cute…I love that first photo!!

XO, Alison


Amber - Real Girl Glam March 27, 2013 at 10:13 am

This tee- LOVE IT! It’s perfection paired with the white jeans & jacket!


Kodi March 27, 2013 at 10:19 am

I so love this t shirt — though I don’t think I’d ever have an appropriate place to wear it! I spend too much time in places where children could see me. Pajama shirt perhaps?

Rachel March 27, 2013 at 10:24 am

Haha, I love it! Great striped blazer too :)


Lauren March 27, 2013 at 10:27 am

Hahaha this made me laugh out loud. Anyone who has lived in NYC knows that you either say the effing with admiration or disdain! Either way, it’s a cool city and a really cool tshirt! Great find!

Marissa March 27, 2013 at 10:36 am

Haha, you two just crack me up! A visit to the city for me is in order soon so we can have some major girl play time :) I love the B+W combos as of late — thank goodness it’s a huge trend since half of closet is this classic combo!!


christin March 27, 2013 at 10:46 am

We must be sharing a brain – I blogged my favorite graphic t-shirts today too!

So bummed we weren’t able to meet up yesterday. Let’s hang out soon!


Nicole Chiarella March 27, 2013 at 12:18 pm

I love this top! This is actually the second time I saw this phrase on a t-shirt this week – talk about a coincidence!

xo Nicole


Chelsea March 27, 2013 at 12:36 pm

OBSESSED with this cute NY tee. So much edgier than the classic “I heart NY” version! You look adorable and I’m loving that pretty striped blazer. Hope you’re having a blast!

Alyssa March 27, 2013 at 2:05 pm

First of all, I’m pretty sure I need that tee–it will cement my status as a newly-minted New Yorker, right? Second: OBSESSING over that Karen Kane jacket. Love, love, love.


Erika March 27, 2013 at 3:04 pm

Loved the fact that you both wore the same t-shirt but pulled off very different looks with it! It’s great!

Your hair always looks fantastic, btw!


Stephanie (Glam Slam!) March 27, 2013 at 8:59 pm

That tee is ridiculously awesome!! I love how you’ve styled it! And…no shame in wearing black and white so much; not only is it a chic combo and waaaay on trend, but it’s also just freakin’ awesome! <3 it!

xo, Stephanie :)


Alexa March 27, 2013 at 11:38 pm

In loveeee with this top and the rest of the outfit! I need to get myself one!



Leanne March 28, 2013 at 1:06 am

Super cute. I love how you’ve styled a t-shirt!! It still looks so polished on you.

Love from South Africa

I couldn’t wear the tee with the kids but love it.

That blazer and necklace! One of our favourite looks by far


Brittany March 31, 2013 at 3:47 pm

This tee is too cute! I definitely want to order one :) Do they run true to size?

Brittany – The Subtle Statement


Jessica Sturdy March 31, 2013 at 10:16 pm

I bought a medium because I didn’t want it to be tight! I’d say they run a tad bit small. :)


sarah April 2, 2013 at 1:05 pm



Terry Kim April 3, 2013 at 12:16 am

I’ve been debating on whether or not I need a black and white striped blazer for a while now…I definitely need one!! T-shirt and blazer combo is perfect. Great outfit!

Love Me to Pieces


Bree April 4, 2013 at 1:17 am

Love that blazer with the white pants, plus that shirt is super cute!


Kristina April 5, 2013 at 4:06 pm

I’m DYING over that tee. Hilarious!! Great look, girl.


TRENDSURVIVOR April 14, 2013 at 3:53 pm

You both rocked the t-shirt. I love both looks!
See you in my blog, maybe.


Lisa October 2, 2013 at 10:28 am
