Literally and figuratively. Ha. Anyhow… let’s just say I was skeptical of pulling off this trendy flare thing. First of all, I’m short. Second of all, just not sure. Flares are typically made for people who must be 7 feet 2 inches tall because most of the ones I’ve tried on are just ridiculously long. My favourite sales person at Free People assured me that I could pull it off and that she had a pair that would work. These are made with a raw hem so that you can cut them to any length. I tried them on with the highest heel I figured I would ever wear with them and cut them to fit those. Past that, let ‘em drag on the ground and fray a little more. What do you think? Did I pull it off?

Back with Flare

Is it true? Is fall really around the corner? Am I the only one looking forward to rich hues and cozy wraps? I certainly hope not. While I wish it was actually a cool enough evening to need this wrap it so wasn’t. I still have a hard time posting “normal” casual outfits. Real people wear tanks and jeans though so why not? My latest saga? Fibromyalgia. I’m in pain and there’s no way I can even think about a heel or a wedge or anything of the sort right now. If you have to wear flats they may as well be Gucci right? The drivers are so comfortable and soft. Highly recommend!

Casual Transition

Every once in a while a product comes along and you wonder why you weren’t the one to think of it. When Wrapurse contacted me and asked me to share this product with you I was glad to do so. How many times have you been at a restaurant or a concert and thought, “Eww! I’m not putting my purse down on that nasty floor!” Or how about in the cart at the grocery store? Yuk! This is the solution! Please see the story below.


This is my purse safely wrapped in a size medium Wrapurse. I take it everywhere now and it will remain permanently in my purse!

Wrapurse – Genius!

Versatility. That’s what came to mind when I spied this fun little cardigan. It’s light enough and short sleeved so you can definitely don it over a tank in the summer yet a dark enough tone that it will make a great finishing piece over a long sleeved top of some sort in the fall or winter. Besides, who could pass up these awesome huge pockets? Since it is still summer (I say begrudgingly), I paired it with all white and added some edginess with destroyed skinnies. While I’m loving some of the wider leg pants that are out there these days I still love my skinnies and they allow me to wear those flowy tops I love so much!
