My mom said I looked like a pretty ballerina in this skirt and top knot. Um hello, did you not see my aviators and my snakeskin accessories and my fang earrings? I don’t look like a pretty ballerina, I look like an edgy rebellious ballerina. The kind that doesn’t point her toes because she’s just too cool for that…and because I physically can’t point my toes due to being born with messed up feet. But mostly it’s because I’m rebel ballerina who’s too cool for ballerina school.

I’m so excited for the opening of the online shop, Stripes & Polka Dots! That’s where my pretty skirt came from. Sara, the gal behind the shop, is super nice and so talented. These skirts come in several different colors, are amazing quality, and even have pockets.  For today only, Stripes & Polka Dots is offering FREE SHIPPING on all the gorgeous skirts with code: referredbykc

Karen Kane Outfit + Giveaway

By | Fashion, Giveaway, Style | 52 Comments

Taking pictures with a stubborn and excited bulldog is quite a difficult task. But when he complements your outfit so well, you don’t give up. Luckily bulldogs get tired easily and about 5 minutes and 70 bulldog butt pictures in, Tugg decided to cooperate. (We also have a chocolate lab but he’s more interested in hunting for lizards than modeling for pictures with us).

First of all, can I tell you again how excited I am about my new little niece, Stevie Rae?! She’s the cutest little thing and she’s even named after me (my middle name is Rae). I’m in love. And my sister is doing amazing too, even after an emergency c-section. She is doing so great that she has even threatened to steal these Sseko sandals from me. I told her I’d trade for Stevie Rae but she’s not accepting that offer yet.
What I love most about these sandals is their cuteness obviously, but also that with each purchase, you provide employment and scholarship opportunities to women in Uganda who are pursuing their dreams and overcoming poverty. There’s nothing better than giving back while looking stylish. And these sandals can be tied over 15 different ways so it’s like you’re getting 15 sandals in one. They’re the perfect summer sandal to purchase to benefit an amazing cause! You can learn more about Sseko and all it is they do here
*I am half way falling asleep as I type this because I have been staying up way too late and getting up way to early these past few days with all the baby excitement. If I made no sense in this post, that is why. I don’t know how you moms do it. I’m already exhausted and I’m not even the one who just birthed a baby! Kuttos to all you mommies!

What do you do when you are in possession of the most gorgeous dress you have ever seen? Aaand your friend is a professional photographer?  You have a mini photoshoot, of course. Duh!
Can someone please invite me to their summer wedding? I have this perfect dress that I really want to wear to a wedding but have no weddings to go to. Where was this dress two summers ago when I had nearly ten weddings to go to?

P.S. I want to give a special thanks to my friend, Emily for taking these pictures. She’s amazing! Be sure to like her Facebook Page to see some of the gorgeous pictures she takes.

In case you didn’t read my super cute and awesome tee, it says “I’m Addicted To Lipstick”. If I was thinking ahead, I would have worn and posted this outfit on Tuesday because apparently Tuesday was National Lipstick Day. Of course, I didn’t realized that until I got on Instagram and saw all the lipstick pictures. And like any good Instagramer, I jumped on that bandwagon and shared my own lipstick picture. It was the right thing to do.

Feel Good Classics

By | Fashion, Style | 46 Comments

Picture this: Me, lying on the floor of my closet, a mess of clothes scattered around the closet and bedroom, whining, “I have nothing to wear!” (first world problems, I know but it happens to the best of us. And it happened to me last week and last month and more often than I care to admit). I don’t know about you, but when I have nothing to wear, I just don’t feel great and I throw myself a pity party. Sometimes my chocolate lab, Skip, attends the pity party and lays on the floor with me, but usually it’s a pity party of one. Luckily, I have my go-to look that fits just about any occasion and always makes me feel great. And that my friends is a trusty white blouse and my favorite blue jeans. Paired with strappy sandals and a snakeskin purse, it’s perfect for a dinner date. Or I can go daytime casual with flats and a tote bag. Or add a blazer and classic pumps for the office. Oh a white blouse and jeans; no matter how long you’ve been lying on the floor crying that you have nothing to wear, they are there for you. Thank you white blouse and jeans for getting me through those tough days of nothing to wear and helping me to feel my best. I owe ya one.

DSW Shoe Hookup- Back to Class: Bright Sneakers

Ever since watching the movie Endless Love (I watched it like 3 times. It’s true, I’m a sucker for movies about young love) and seeing all her cute outfits with dresses and sneakers, I have been loving the combo! I mean, what’s better to pair with a white, shift dress than bright sneakers? Nothing is. And my orthotics fit in these shoes, so I have happy feet too. Happy feet, happy outfit…can’t ask for much more. Oh wait, yes you can! How about getting rewards for buying cute shoes, such bright sneakers or heels or any shoes your little heart desires? Yes, that would be great!

Well, say hello to DSW and their rewards program. I am so excited to team up with DSW for a Back-to-Class #DSWShoeHookup. Hint: a major trend for back-to-class style is sneakers, such as bright sneakers like I’m wearing. Another trend that I’m excited about is running shoes. Yup, they’re making their way from the gym to the real world, and comfort has never been so stylish. I plan to wear my running shoes with a cute blazer and jeans this Fall. And now you can get rewarded for staying on trend with the DSW rewards program. My favorite part about the rewards program is that they celebrate your birthday by giving you a special birthday certificate. It’s no secret how much I love birthdays, especially my own, so this just makes me one happy gal. I do have one little secret to share with you though…next week there will be an amazing DSW giveaway! Woot! Woot!

Hate Turned Love for Red

By | Fashion, Style | 50 Comments

When I was a kid, I hated wearing red. Ok, hate is a strong word. I just didn’t really love it. I had to be in the right mood to wear red and I was rarely in that mood. Fast forward to now and my favorite “real” color (as in not a neutral) to wear is red. Throw on a bold red piece and you instantly feel fabulous. Maybe now I’m always in that “mood”. Or maybe as a kid, I wasn’t prepared for the fabulousness that is red and now I’m ready for all the fabulousness I can get. Whatever the reason is, I’m loving me some red. And this red top is no exception.

Can it be Fall already?! I know there are lots of people who live for summer but I am not one of those people. Plus, I have a really cute outfit idea for this top and it includes boots. So obviously it needs to be Fall soon so I can wear that outfit. Shockingly, Mother Nature doesn’t really care what kind of weather I need for my outfits and it will be close to 100 degrees tomorrow. 
While we’re on the subject of my top, can we just talk about how much I love it?! I think my favorite part is the zippers. They serve no purpose other than cuteness and that is just how I like my zippers…cute. Seriously, French Connection can do no wrong.
