Jeanne says:  This tunic is about five years old; it’s certainly different. It doesn’t turn heads exactly, but it does get a lot of side eye.  And when I wear it, there is no point in combining it with any other interesting apparel because that would just take it over the top! It does qualify as “interesting gray”, right? In case you hadn’t figured it out, this is definitely Friday casual in my world!

Kate has put together a trendy outfit: embellished sweatshirt, skater skirt, neon and cobalt. I like the combo, although I probably would have done a half tuck and pushed up the sleeves on the sweatshirt just to exaggerate the playfulness of the outfit. Kate has gotten lots of wear out of that Anthropologie skirt and we can see why — it is adorable.

Kate says: For this outfit, I was inspired by the many Pinterest photos floating around of super sophisticated all gray outfits. Of course, I couldn’t resist adding some bright pops of color! I really enjoyed the playfulness of this outfit — it very different from the ways I normally wear this skirt!

As Mom points out, she has been wearing this tunic for several years, and I can’t say it’s my favorite… but it’s a perfect example of her quirky style. She used to have (or still has?) a dress with repeating pictures of Mao on it, so we all know she likes to grab some attention! I do like how she keeps it simple with leggings and a low-slung belt, and really lets Twiggy be the star.

    I secretly kind of love when you ladies disagree on how you styled your outfits 🙂 It’s adorable — and also helpful! That way I get 2 ideas on how to wear something (e.g. the half tuck!).
