I’m bracing for a swelteringly hot September. Seriously. It was in the low 70s and even some 60s much of last week, and although I was delighted to be able to dress accordingly, there’s GOT to be some hot weather in store for us eventually. I mean, right?
I haven’t found tons of wordy graphic tees that appeal to me – I even made my own – but this Redbubble ampersand tee is right up my alley. I don’t qualify as a font nerd by any stretch, but I do love the look of elegant typography. Plus in a world full of polarized either/ors, I like embracing the ands.
Pretty sure I bought both this sweater and these pants long before Christmas, so I’m slightly stunned to see they’re both still available. Both are comfy, casual favorites in my closet. Though I’ll admit that something about the pants makes them a little less easy to style and wear than these. Could be that moto-inspired knee patches are certainly interesting, but a little incongruous on a pair of fancy sweatpants. Just a theory.
Just a few more snowy outfits … hang in there. Of course, by the time I use them all up it might have snowed again.
My favorite and most-used outfit-building cheat is to grab a multi-colored scarf and pull out a few colors from its pattern. Here, that just meant burgundy and black, but the scarf unifies those two beautifully and adds a bit more color overall. This is a great practice for color pairing inspiration, too: Look at an existing pattern to see colors that a professional designer has grouped, and then re-create the grouping with your own garments!
