This sweater was a birthday purchase back in January, but it’s been a little tough to style. It’s made from a lovely, soft cashmere but is also super thin and tricky to layer due to it’s shape. Luckily, we’re having some actual spring weather instead of moving directly from -30 degrees to 85+ degrees, so now’s the perfect time to trot it out! I’m a sucker for skull prints, but love that this one includes roses as well.
Ahhh, two of my favorites in one outfit: Mixed neutrals and mixed metals. Throw in a little asymmetry, and I’m happy as can be. This tunic is sold out in black on the Karen Kane site, but there are still a few left at Zappos and the plus size version at 6pm. It’s a mid-weight knit that’s ideal for transitional weather, which is what we’re still having these days. Not complaining, though: 50 degrees is my temperature sweet spot.
You’ve probably heard people describe soft, supple leather as being “buttery.” Ever wondered where that colloquialism came from? I just imagine someone lovingly petting a stick of butter and, suddenly struck by its texture, exclaiming, “By jove, this butter feels JUST LIKE REALLY SOFT LEATHER TO ME.” I mean, I use that phrase myself on occasion, but my literal mind has been tripping over it lately.
This jacket falls into the buttery category, and although the tee and pants might be more in the well-refrigerated cream cheese realm, they too are quite soft. Nothing like an outfit that’s entirely free of starchy stiffness to help a gal relax.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go eat some toast, corn on the cob, and lobster …
