I’ve reached a point in my life where the grandiose apologies for certain personality quirks have stopped. I don’t know exactly when this shift occurred, but there’s not a lot of shame in my game anymore and I’m finding that self-acceptance makes for a really happy heart and a much better sleep pattern.

Like most people in New York, I tend to find myself stretched between opportunities/meetings/obligations that require me to be in two places at once, which means that I am inevitably late for something by a few minutes. And like all busy people, I make a quick apology. About 90% of the time, I’m early but there are times when the whole time-space continuum doesn’t work out in my favor. Which is where this shirt comes in handy.

I figure now I can just arrive, smile and point to the shirt. Because, really, what is the purpose of a slogan tee if it doesn’t do a little bit of the work for you? I paired mine with some super-amazing flowing pants (nothing more chic and freaking comfortable in the summer, if you ask me), plus strappy sandals and a great bag. I’d normally wear a jacket with the look, but a great leather biker vest would also work.

Forgive yourself for not being able to be everywhere at once. Sometimes, like this look, it’s more about the effort than the delivery.

What I’m Wearing: Sorry I’m Late t-shirt from Print Liberation, Lauren Ralph Lauren Wide-Leg Floral Pant, Nylo Saffiano-Patent Sandal and   Leather Belted Satchel. Polish on toes: Jin Soon Nail Lacquer in Blue Iris.
