There are so many amazing local brands popping up everywhere lately, but one in particular has really taken off and we're loving the idea behind their brand. Ocean & Sea is based right in Kansas City and produces clothing, prints, and accessories that are all created on the passion for dreaming. You've probably seen their popular LA, NY, KC t-shirt worn by many already. They carry more graphic tees with nods to the open water that we're loving right now. Everything from their imagery to their designs are really inspiring to us, and you can really feel their passion for what they do. We took a stab at styling their Heart Grey Tee and their Sail Away Tee for fall in the photos below!

There are so many different ways you can style a simple graphic t-shirt for fall. Layering with a cardigan or jacket is always a great option because the weather is cool, and that outer layer can easily add depth to your look. It doesn't matter if the cardigan or jacket has a print or not - especially if you are wearing a neutral colored t-shirt like this one from Ocean & Sea. Elizabeth's black and white tribal fringe cardigan looks effortless layered over her t-shirt.
In our stylish minds fall = flannels so a flannel shirt is always our go-to piece when throwing together a fall outfit. Tying the flannel around my waist is a cool and stylish way to wear your flannels this season. Don't worry if you feel like you're back in the 90's because it's totally in right now, I swear - even Stylecaster says so! I went all out and threw on some edgy ripped black jeans to accompany my grunge vibe. Sometimes I just love dressing with a little edge even if my fiance says I look like I'm trying to be a rocker.

If you guys haven't checked out Ocean & Sea yet (which I'm sure most of you have) you definitely should! There is nothing that makes us happier than seeing successful brands like this one come right out of KC. We can't wait to see what the future holds for them!
