Fall Capsule #1: Home Sweet Home


The story of this tee in my collection? I saw another style blogger wear it and instantly wanted it for myself.

I love Indiana. I’m not Hoosier (aka the name for a persona who lives in Indiana) born, but I’m certainly Hoosier-bred. I grew up in northeast Indiana, went to school in southern Indiana (go Indiana University!), and ended up smack dab in the middle of the state (Indianapolis for those unfamiliar).

A lot of you might consider Indiana a flyover state, but we’re actually a lot more than that. We’re a blast of Midwestern hospitality (we got mad props for hosting the Super Bowl a few years ago), a landing point for all those letters to Santa Claus (more than 500,000 letters are sent to Santa Claus, IN, per year), and a home to a fine sport (basketball, specifically the movie Hoosiers…so good if you haven’t seen it)!

And yes, there’s corn. We produce 20% of the US’s popcorn! You’re welcome!

What’s your home state famous for?!

    Midwest is best! I’m from Iowa, and while I live on the West Coast now, I am OBSESSED with my home state and try to spread Midwest love everywhere I go. Also, have you seen this tee? Cracks me up! http://raygunsite.com/collections/girls/products/midwest-map

    I know this is old but first I loved this Fall capsule you did. Secondly I love these home tees and need one myself. I wasn’t Michigan-born but it is what I call home for almost 20 years now. Michigan is known for the largest production of cars in US, Motown, the UP which is gorgeous, thousands of lakes, the best apples in the nation and a gorgeous Fall season.
