Here we go....
Paloma's Favorite Karen Look:
the "schoolgirl chic" look in Same Shirt Different Day
Karen was really into collared shirts and preppy looks this month. And I loved it! This outfit is my favorite because I think the buttoned cardigan is really flattering and you can see how teeny her waist is (bitch). :-) And I love the chambray underneath because it's way less expected than basic white. Plus, the heeled loafers, which are a cute neutral shoe, but a with a definitive nod to the preppy. A+!
Paloma's Favorite Paloma Look:
peplum and a pencil skirt in Clothes From Closets Past
Something about this outfit just really did it for me. I think it was partly because it was so unexpectedly cute. I just threw on this old standby comfy pencil skirt and then saw this shirt and these shoes, neither of which I had worn in eons and thought - why not? I was super pleased with the result because it looks polished and professional but its not my usual cardigan/pencil skirt combo. Bonus = its basically all from Target and Forever 21. But what else is new?
Karen's Favorite Paloma Look:
polka dots and hunter green from Channeling Palm Springs
Paloma started out the month with a bang. I love everything about this, down to her Cali casual pose. Plus, did you know this woman has had two babies? (Bitch!) :-) She looks slim and chic, ready to hit Dean Martin's pool party. Hand the girl a martini, she's doing it for the gods, Rat Pack style!
Karen's Favorite Karen Look:
slouchy sweater, skinny roll-ups, a breeze
Ha, loved this "moment" so much I forced it on my Instagram and Facebook friends, and then obsessively monitored how many "likes" I got. I love everything about this picture because it is so hard to get high-strung me to sometimes just relax. And I look relaxed here, exuding something like... confidence? A lovely quote I once heard from a friend: "I want to feel like this, always."
Other notes about this outfit - I covet couture and want more of it in my life, but this is a simple lesson that Forever 21 and H&M, topped off with a good handbag and some solid boots - now that gets the job done.
