New Lauren James Sweet Tees Are “One in a Melon”

Hey y’all-it’s hard to believe that we are just one week away from Labor Day! Although fall doesn’t officially begin until the third week of September, and the weather in the South often doesn’t follow suit until October, I still consider Labor Day the end of summer. Once September rolls around, something in the air shifts. Anyways, today I’m super excited to share my favorite designs from the new Lauren James Sweet Tee collection. Lauren James kindly sent me a t-shirt from their latest Sweet Tee collection in exchange for an Instagram post. However, I’m such a big fan of my new shirt that I wanted to feature it on the blog as well. These soft and comfortable shirts are the perfect for lounging in during this final week of summer. They would also be great to throw in your suitcase if you’re traveling for Labor Day weekend.

Also, please note that although Lauren James provided me with this particular shirt as part of a collaboration, I have bought plenty of Lauren James Sweet Tees in the past. So when Lauren James reached out to me about doing an Instagram collaboration, it was a natural fit. Authenticity is a huge component of my mission with Palmettos & Pineapples. Therefore, y’all can trust that I only accept collaborations from brands whose aesthetic or mission aligns with my style and values.

One in a Melon

When I was browsing the new Lauren James Sweet Tees to pick out my complimentary shirt, there were so many cute designs to choose from. However, I ultimately decided upon “One in a Melon,” because I love watermelon, and it’s the quintessential summer fruit. Also, I think it’s so cute that the watermelon’s seeds spell out “Lauren James.”

In addition, the “One in a Melon” slogan is a precious play on words of “One in a Million.” Wearing this saying reminds me that I am a unique child of God. Love that this bright and cheerful design has such a sweet meaning to me as well.

Note that I’m wearing a size medium. Lauren James Sweet Tees are loose, but I like to size up in pocket t-shirts for an ever looser fit. I’m loving the aqua color (called Ocean Palm) of the One in a Melon tee as well. It matches the pool water perfectly.

The front of the Lauren James Sweet Tees have a pocket with a script “LJ Co.” logo as well.

More New Lauren James Sweet Tee Designs

Although the One in a Melondesign was my top choice for this collaboration, there are multiple other adorable designs from the recent Lauren James Sweet Tee release. Here are some more designs that I love. Click on the links to view on the Lauren James website. Also, you can save 15% on any of these Sweet Tees with code PINEAPPLE15.

Home Is Where the Heart Is. This design features a pineapple, which I obviously love. And the raspberry color will transition nicely into fall.

Pearls Are Always Appropriate. This design is making a comeback from one of Lauren James’ earlier Sweet Tee collections. It comes in hot pink and lilac, and would also be perfect for wearing in early fall when it’s still short sleeve weather in the South.

No Grit, No Pearl. The elephant in this design is so cute. He’s holding a pearl in his trunk! It comes in a bold coral, and would also be appropriate for warm fall days.

As Southern As Possible. This is another classic Lauren James Sweet Tee design making a comeback. A long-sleeved shirt in this exact design was one of the first Lauren James Sweet Tees I purchased over four years ago!

Southern Roots. This sweet dandelion design comes in Ocean Palm (same color as my “One in a Melon” tee) and navy, and is suitable for all seasons.

Hope you enjoyed this peek at the latest release of Lauren James Sweet Tees. You can view all the designs here. Classic preppy pocket tees are my go-to for lounging, running errands, and other casual outings. Although the One in a Melon design I have is summery, many of the new designs will easily transition into those days when the calendar says “fall” but the weather still feels like summer. You can bet I will be soaking up the end of summer in my new Lauren James Sweet Tee, and I am definitely packing it for my Labor Day weekend beach getaway!
