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.
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.
I love the look of white graphic tees with black writing. They’re kinda everywhere right now, and seem incredibly versatile. However, most of the ones I found that didn’t say something that irritated or offended me said something in French or referenced Paris. I don’t speak French and Paris ranks low on my list of dream destinations, so wearing a “bon jour” tee seemed disingenuous.
I turned to Zazzle to make my own, and although I’m satisfied with how they turned out eventually, I strongly recommend choosing a different vendor if you’re interested in trying this yourself. The first batch they sent were ALL on styles of tees I’d never asked for, the second set included some wrong sizes, and the third wasn’t right either but was close enough and I just settled. I’ve used Cafepress in the past and it’s worked MUCH better.
