Ever since Ben and Lauren walked into the sunset together, we’ve been left with a huge hole in our hearts – er, our Monday nights. The next season of The Bachelorette will return soon enough (it’s not too early to start planning a viewing party though, right?), but if you’re itching for some updates from that reality show realm, season 11’s star Kaitlyn Bristowe has just collaborated with graphic designer Chelcey Tate on a fashion + home decor collection that’s all kinds of cute.
The collection (which dropped just yesterday) is comprised of tees, tank tops, mugs, water bottles and a bunch of prints. All the merch features quippy sayings like “The snuggle is real” and “messy bun + get ‘er done.” Bristowe came up with the fun slogans while Tate put her design chops to work to make them beautiful.
What’s the inspiration behind these sayings? Bristowe tells us, “I didn’t think too hard about it. They’re either honest thoughts or just things that pop into my head. It was time to bring them to life! I’m always thinking of ways to make people laugh, so I have to say, this came pretty naturally to me.”
She goes on to say something that we bet all makers out there can relate to, “The best part of the process was seeing my thoughts framed. Sounds simple and a little silly, but that’s honestly what it was. The little things that make me laugh can now be shared with others. I’m all about getting people to crack a smile.”
Whether you’re looking for a gift for your bestie, a housewarming present for your co-worker or a fun addition to your summer wardrobe, this is collection is where it’s at. If you’re having trouble deciding what to snatch up, Kaitlyn says the “Mug Life” mug is her favorite from the collection and Chelcey says she’s partial to the “Messy Bun + Get ‘Er Done” tee.
