      Happy Thursday Gang!

      Hope your summer has been filled with tons of fun and that you're living your best life everrrrrr! It’s been a fun summer and the shop is full of fresh apparel, fabulous accessories and the best mugs! To all the new subscribers, welcome to the GUGHD Time Gang, you’re going to like it here! To the loyal GTG subscribers, heyyyy y’all!

      Six months ago the tone of the TGT newsletters changed and I thought we would take a look back at a few guest post highlights and tips from those newsletters. To read the full posts, peep the blog. I pulled out one tip each and have those below.  I also have shop updates including the latest Spotify GUGHD Playlist August and new arrivals. The shop is literally bursting with fresh inventory and it’s the best time ever to have a totally good time. Save $5 on a future order with code “IGotFiveBucks” (expires Sunday)!

      Thank you to those who have contributed to the newsletter and to you reading this now! Until next time, be you, do you and have the best night ever!

      Yours in a good time,

      Kyle, TGT Shop Owner

      Tip 1, Cut It Up: Don’t be afraid to make it your own and take the scissors to it. It can be risky but go slow and you’ll be fine. With this shirt, first I cut the waistband off, then put it on and decided I wanted to take a few more inches off. That’s the key - cut a tiny bit off, try it on, and then cut more. Don’t go too fast! If you want to wear your sweatshirt with low rise jeans and don’t want your stomach to show, put those jeans on to see how it fits before you chop too much. I also cut the bands off the wrists (plus a few inches) since the sleeves were way too long for me.

      Tip 2, Try New Things: Even if you think those new ideas will fail, you never know until you try! That is huge when figuring out your own style when taking photos. This always happens to me, thinking outside the box and I end up liking the end result.  I have visual inspiration, locations that I want to shoot at, and poses I want to try and do. Now, having a plan is always good, but in my experience the best photos were surprisingly not planned.

      Tip 3, Dressed‐up Diva: Bet you never thought of dressing up your graphic tee for a night out on the town, hmm? But it can be done! When I do this, I always choose a bottom that mirrors the “fanciness” of the event that I’m going to. For example, this look I would wear out to dinner and drinks with my girlfriends. For something dressier, I would pair this top with a sequin skirt and a leather jacket for an event like a New Year’s Eve cocktail party. Accessories are also a fun way to dress up a graphic tee. My black and white clutch was the perfect fit for this outfit (and this backdrop!)

      xo,

      GUGHD Newsletter 017 July 2017 - Nickel City Pretty

      Hey hey hey Good Time Gang!

      Summer is moving along and the vibes are going strong! Our #GUGHDsummer photo contest is in full swing and I am loving all your Instagram pictures of good times. La Croix dripping with condensation, friends dripping with chlorine and bodies dripping with angst and excitement. It’s all happening! The contest ends July 27th, so keep tagging your good times with #GUGHDsummer! For more deets, click here.

      This issue we have special guest Nickel City Pretty in the house! Nickel City Pretty has been a friend of the shop for years. We’re talking TGT Etsy days. We reached out to collab with Lindsay of NCP to see how she would style a top for summer. We didn’t get just one look, we got three! What I love about the looks Lindsay pulled together is that she really tschuzed up her TGT top. When I think TGT, I think casual. Lindsay demonstrates that casual can be perfect at the start of your day or making it work at the very end of your day. Lindsay also demonstrates that I shouldn’t put a limit on the capabilities of a TGT top. Dear Lindsay, thank you for serving validation in a guest post. Xo, Kyle

      Our tank top section is 20% off with code “NCP20” until Sunday to celebrate Lindsay’s guest contribution. Hooray! Take a look below at Nickel City Pretty style tips and we’ll see you in two weeks for the #GUGHDsummer winner!

      Yours in a Good Time,

      How To Style Your Favorite Top This Summer

       

      Hello and happy summer, all!

      My name is Lindsay and I run the life & style blog Nickel City Pretty. If you like my style and want to see more about my life, follow me on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter! I’m based out of Buffalo, NY (the birthplace of the chicken wing) and while we are famous for our snowy winters, summer is where we really thrive. My absolute favorite thing about summer is finally getting the chance to wear CUTE CLOTHING!

      There’s nothing better than a trusty graphic tee to show off those tanned arms, but there’s pretty much only one way to wear it, right? Wrong! Tees can look great in so many situations, whether it’s dressing up or dressing down. While I love a good classic tee, I opted to grab this guy in the tank style, as I love the hint of sexiness when I pair it with a lace bralette.

      The ways that I’ve styled this Totally Good Time tank can also work for a regular shirt. Here’s three of my favorite looks:

      1. Darling Denim: The first, and pretty much only way that most of us wear our tees is with a pair of jeans. I opt for a pair of denim with some character, though, as to not look like a complete basic bitch. Here I went with a skinny jean in a dark wash with some distressing. I personally think that every outfit has to have something “special” in it as to not be totally boring. The distressing on the denim and gladiator sandals give an elevated feel to the normal jeans and flip flops of days past.

      2. Cutoff Cutie: Cutoff shorts are all the rage, especially during summer music festivals and fun outdoor events. For this look, I’ve tucked my Riverdale tee into my favorite pair of cutoff black shorts. Distressing is so hot right now and the rips add a bit of fun to the outfit and keep it casual.

      Whenever I wear shorter shorts, I like to keep my shoe color neutral, to make sure that my legs look as long as possible. Also, PRO TIP: if you are posing in front of a rusty metal structure, make sure that you are up to date on your tetanus shots.

      3. Dressed‐up Diva: Bet you never thought of dressing up your graphic tee for a night out on the town, hmm? But it can be done! When I do this, I always choose a bottom that mirrors the “fanciness” of the event that I’m going to. For example, this look I would wear out to dinner and drinks with my girlfriends.

      For something dressier, I would pair this top with a sequin skirt and a leather jacket for an event like a New Year’s Eve cocktail party. Accessories are also a fun way to dress up a graphic tee. My black and white clutch was the perfect fit for this outfit (and this backdrop!)

      Have fun with your clothing and experiment! There’s no wrong way to wear something. If you feel good in it, rock that outfit, boo! Tag me in your tee selfies…I’d love to see how you style your Totally Good Time swag!

      Shop News! The Girls sweatshirt from the shop was one of the items listed from Lena Dunham's closet auction last week! The auction supported women's health and I decided that this week the shop would match that sale. The first four Girls sweatshirts sold will go to the same charity. Hooray!
