2018 Graduation Day

 
TO THE KID AT HEART 1x1 - REV_02.jpg

Dear Kid At Heart,

You find yourself at the edge of the seat at graduation. You are handed your ever-longed diploma and you feel the gut-wrenching mixture of pure joy and terror for what’s about to come: The World of Adulting.

What job are you going to take? What’s going to happen to you? Are you even ready for this?

All these questions come crashing to your head even before you could sit back down to your seat. Take a chill pill and look at these problems in proportion:

What job are you going to take? Whatever you set your heart into, you made it this far and the next chapter is just another adventure for you to set out. Don’t worry about taking the time to clear your head and steer towards your own direction.

What’s going to happen? That’s for the future you to worry about. The thing about stressing over the unknown is that’s all it’s ever going to be – the unknown. Let the tide roll in when it does come.

Are you ready for this? Ready as you’ll ever be. There’s a fine line between fear and excitement. Dive headfirst into your future and the fun will set in.

Dear Inner Kid,

Okay, maybe you didn’t really think this through. I mean, let’s face it: your interviewer isn’t going to be impressed with that limited edition rock band tee – even if it did cost you your entire life savings.

Let’s clean up the wardrobe real quick. What do you need?

A clean and crisp white button-down. It’s obviously essential.

A smart blazer to suit things up.

A pair of nicely-trimmed trousers.

A bag to keep things handy and on check.

Looking at you up and down, you look ready to ace that interview, kid.

Dear Little Kid,

You check the time on your watch. You throw on your sleekest bomber jacket. You look the part, but still… walking into an office like this really does make you feel small, huh? There are so many people to look up to, so many experiences you’re going to encounter, and so many things that are going to happen… you’re in for a big ride.

Even though you technically are an adult, you can’t help feel like that new kid on the block. At least, it’s all uphill from here.

Dear Kid,

You wonder why you still call yourself ‘kid’ and write all these letters in your head. Then again, you realize age doesn’t really strip away the sense of wonder.

You still enjoy a pair of colorful socks now and then.

Or a striped tee to keep up with the fun on a typical Wednesday.

Or sport that cap from last Friday night’s game night.

Guess there’s not much difference in being an adult than being a kid. There’s no need for goodbyes after all.

‘Til the next entry, kid!

We Found the Top That Can Take You From Monday to Saturday in a Breeze

Proven by writer and former magazine editor Marla Miniano.

A day in the life of a magazine editor calls for a lot of activities—from attending shoots to proofing the book’s pages. Let’s not forget the long list of events she would have to show up for, too! Now, imagine a top that’s comfy, versatile, and doesn’t scrimp on style either—a top that can keep up with the girl boss’s schedule with total ease. Wouldn’t that be perfect? Luckily, The Ribbed Tee is here to save every busy woman’s day (Magazine editor or not)!

To put the tee to the test, we asked writer and former magazine editor Marla Miniano to create five looks to fit her usual Monday to Friday schedule with the ribbed tee as her key piece. While she’s at it, Marla shared a couple of interesting tidbits about style and her fascinating life as a writer, too! Read on and get inspired.

“Having projects as a writer and editor entails producing a lot of shoots. I need to be able to go around. Sometimes it gets cold during shoots, too,” Marla shared. For busy shoot days, a comfortable light green tee paired with classic black jeans is the way to go. For extra style points, “A blazer might be too heavy so I’ll go with a striped button-down [as a layering piece] and knot the shirt to keep my outfit fun.”

Putting together fashionable and fresh looks may be challenging, especially when you’re in a rush to get to work. So how would Marla do it for days when she has to attend events? “I would layer a white shirt under a ruffled printed dress. It still looks polished, but there’s still a lot of movement at the bottom.” The takeaway: layering is indeed key.

“I love wide-legged pants because they’re so comfortable,” Marla gushed. Plus, wear them with a pair of heels and you’d look taller in a snap, she added. Go bold and go for color with a rich burgundy pant paired with an equally bold terra cotta tee.

“As a writer, I do a lot of interviews.

For that, I’d like something casual but still professional.”

When she’s not busy at her desk, Marla loves traveling and exploring different beaches with her friends and her husband. For that, a pair of comfortable shorts is an instant must-have. “But it’s good to pick a tailored pair in a neutral color so [your outfit] still looks polished,” Marla suggested. Team a powder blue shirt with a pair of white city shorts and add a blush blazer in case the weather gets chilly. Quick style advice from Marla: “Just throw it over!”

“For weekends, hang-outs with my friends, or if I need to do errands, I would go with a blush shirt and shorts style pairing,” Marla shared. Opt for a pair of shorts that still looks professional just in case you meet someone you work with.
