Statement Tees: The Desert is Calling Tee

Alley and rae Charcoal graphic tee

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

Graphic tees are so fun and I'm all about them this summer. Most of them are loose fitting, which is a must for me. I love that because it means they're comfortable and can breathe in the hot weather.

I got my newest one from a statement graphic tee company called Alley and Rae Apparel. They sell graphic tees, tanks, and long sleeves. They also have other goods, like mugs, water bottles, and pillows.
They have a large selection of graphic tees and believe me, it's way hard to choose just one! After looking over all of them many times I finally decided on The Desert is Calling Tee. The main reason I chose this shirt was because of my slight cactus obsession. Aren't cactus things just the cutest?

The top is $34. I got it in the charcoal black triblend color. It also comes in a clay triblend color which is a great color for summer or fall. It has white printing on it that says "The Desert is Calling and I Must Go". It also has a big cactus and some mountains. The shirt is so soft.

I love how the design takes up most of the shirt and is so bold. This is one of those shirts that you can wear year-round. I've already worn it with jeans and with shorts. It's a unisex tee. I got size small and it has a nice, loose fit, which is exactly what I wanted. I would say that it's true to size. They recommend that women order their normal size for a relaxed fit, or go down a size for a tighter fit. They have sizes XS-XXL.

Alley and Rae's shirts are printed when you order them. Allow up to 7 business days for your order to ship to allow them time to make it. The ink they use is water-based and eco-friendly. They're also made in the US and are sweatshop-free.

They warn you that it can smell a little like vinegar before you wash it, but mine didn't smell at all. Alley and Rae recommends hanging the shirt for it to dry to keep the graphic on there.

Alley and Rae has a lot more cute tees and prodcuts too. My other favorites are the I Donut Care Tee, the Stay Golden Tee, and the Comfy AF Unisex Sweatshirt.

This company cares about giving back, so proceeds from each order go toward fighting hunger. They've already provided 6,890 meals to people in need. They also offer free shipping on orders of $150 or more.
