Two Teens And Their Mama: Jeans, A Tshirt, And The Met Ball

Jeans, A Tshirt, And The Met Ball


There's nothing more comfortable than a tshirt and a broken in pair of jeans, and it's an outfit formula I wear a lot.

During the Spring Style Me Challenge, one of the participants introduced us to the Express Knot Front Tee.  I ordered one, and then quickly purchased two more once it arrived.

It's the perfect weight and so soft.  The best part is the knot detail on the front, which makes it look a little more fun than your average tshirt.  

And on a completely unrelated subject...

The Met Ball, also called the Costume Institute Gala, was held in NYC a few weeks ago, and the theme this year was China: Through The Looking Glass

Apparently Beyonce and Kim Kardashian read their invitations wrong, and showed up wearing through the looking dress instead.



Not sure how either of these represent China.  I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be allowed into China in those dresses.

On the other hand, Helen Mirren got it exactly right.  Stunning.



And while there's not a lot of Chinese culture represented here either, Katy Perry's Moschino dress and matching handbag were really fun.



Do you suppose she was actually carrying anything inside that spray paint can?

  1. I was a big fan of Helen Mirren's dress too - maybe because there was WAY too much on display from a lot of other attendees (let's leave something to the imagination!) BTW that's a great T-shirt :)

  4. As always, you crack me up, girl! I have seen these great tees on a couple of other bloggers and really like how they look. You look so cute in your tee, jeans and sandals! Love your pretty necklace, too. I've been admiring that style quite a bit lately.

    Helen Mirren has a great stylist working for her. She rarely makes a misstep.

  7. What the heck about the spray can? I do know that cans can double as other things. In San Francisco, they sold soda cans that were actually.. hiding places for other things. So I wonder if it's hollow and she put her wallet and lipstick in it!

  9. I love the feel of wearing a cute t-shirt. They are hard to find, though. I love the way this one ties. So cute and fresh. And you wear this look well, Lana! I found a cute one the other day and bought all they had in my size. Of course, I love it and wear it all the time, so it looks like I never change clothes. Ha ha. I can live with that. I love it that much. lol
