Welcome to the Jungle & Link Up!

January 26, 2017

I’ve always loved Kenzo’s whimiscal designs and I’ve had my eye on a couple of tiger sweaters and tees for awhile.  When H&M came out with the Kenzo x H&M collaboration in November, I was all in!

I learned my lesson the hard way trying to buy Balmain X H&M …. don’t lollygag, just pick and pay quickly before everything is gone!  So I went right for this t-shirt and was super excited it wasn’t sold out.

So far I’ve only worn the tee with a fat cozy cardigan, because … well … winter.  With spring just around the corner (it is, right?!) I thought it was time to add a little moto to it for more into-spring look!

    Fabulous fun look on you! Thanks for hosting xx

    Thank you, that is so sweet. I like what you did to your jeans-I don’t think I have ever seen that before. Rather than give some of my old ones away, I may try that. You look like you are ready to hit the art galleries on a first Friday. Again, thank you for the feature and for always being such a good hostess for this linkup.

    Thanks for the link up & have a fantastic weekend!

    You just can’t go wrong with a graphic tee Dawn Lucy – and I love the hem of those jeans, I’m considering getting some step hems for myself… ?

    Thank you for hosting lovely lady!

    I think you pulled off the tee perfect for the colder months (of course, your definition of colder is quite warm compared to mine–ha ha!!)

    What a fabulous look!!! Love it all but REALLY love what you did to those jeans!! XO Susan http://www.themidlifefashionista.com

    I love the bottom of those jeans and H&M can be a real win, win sometimes!!

    Cute tee! I love it paired with the moto jacket! That’s a great look!

  • Reply Monika Faulkner January 27, 2017 at 7:01 am

    You’re the total “cool chick” package in this ensemble, dearest Dawn!! Booties and a moto jacket ALWAYS have my vote…and those raw-hemmed, cropped jeans and the Kenzo X H&M tee?? They’re the most perfect of-the-moment pieces to take this look into spring!! (I’m with you – it’s RIGHT around the corner!!) XOXO

    I loved Terri’s picture too and when I visited her blog I found out she was from my neck of the woods in Missouri. It’s always fun to find new blogs. Great look this week! Peace! Cheryl

    Hi Dawn, I just bought a black moto and love yours with the cute tee and boots! I bet you are dreaming of sunny days and clear waters! I have never been able to shop when those lines first come out at HM. Looking great!

    Great graphic tee and such a fan look! I like the quilting detail on your moto jacket and all the buckles & straps on your booties.

    I so have frayed jeans on my list!! You rock this fun look.

    […] blogger snapped up this tiger print graphic tee from the Kenzo for H&M collection. Here’s she’s wearing it untucked over cropped straight leg jeans with stepped hem (which she added herself). The black moto-style jacket together with the black multi-buckle ankle […]
