I have a confession to make.  I tried something new on Tuesday and I discovered I like it.  It’s true: I like it knotty.  Real knotty.

Here's my take on the Tuesday Try: J Crew mint tee $3, mustard skirt $8, shoes $3 plus accessories by She Does Create.

I chose a side position for my knot.
I chose a side position for my knot but if my Pinterest research revealed anything, it’s that knots can be in any position with just about any piece – pencil skirts, jeans, shorts, full skirts, over a dress, etc. You can show some midriff if you so desire, or keep some fabric for camouflage purposes like I did!

I have another confession to make.  I didn’t think I was going to like it!  I thought tying a knot in your tee was some trendy fashion bloggery thing that just wouldn’t translate to an older wider audience…  I couldn’t have been more wrong.

It's okay to wrong sometimes.
It’s okay to wrong sometimes IF you’re wearing bright lipstick.  Otherwise, forget it.

Sometimes you just don’t want to deal with a full tuck but if you leave your tee loose, you lose your shape.  The knotty tee is the perfect compromise.

How often can you say being knotty is a perfect compromise? Seize the opportunity, I say. 😉

My colour palette didn’t hurt matters!  Mustard and mint with a touch of coral – swoon!

Now I want to redecorate a room in these colours.

This isn’t the first time I have worn mustard with mint or mustard with coral, but this combo hasn’t been on my mind lately.  Sometimes you can’t run from your instincts.  My instincts told me to wear these earrings…

And then when I was reviewing Pinterest, I found this as a colour palette example:

If you’ve been following my recent thrift hauls, you know I have been collecting t-shirts for this period of post-op life.  This isn’t going to be a season of flat abs or work wear, but I don’t want to look schleppy.  The knotted tee solves that – I can be casual but put together and also comfortable.

Also doesn’t hurt that I happen to have the PERFECT accessories for this look!
I'm probably going to wear a knotty tee of some sort all summer long!

Did YOU give the knotted tee a try?  How did you like it?!
