Possibly the last cool spring evening. So sad. I wish I could wear outfits like this in the summer but I just get way too overheated. I’m always hot. On another note — my pin straight hair seems to have decided that it would like to be wavy. Beachy cool or messy? What do you think?

Of course being the shopping diva that I am I hit the Memorial Day sales, like all weekend — #bloggerproblems! This tunic was on such super sale at Free People that I couldn’t leave it there. It just wouldn’t have been right! And it’s so soft and pretty. The new store that opened near me is amazing and the staff is awesome. I had a great time shopping and trying things on! The brand and the store create such a great vibe. I can’t get enough. Too bad it’s not actually free! More to come — must space out my exciting new finds!

Feeling a Vibe

This past Sunday was reserved for a special event at work. You get to see me in action. This is what I do — where I do my magic. I sell frames and make people look awesome! (Or at least I try!) Glasses are such an important accessory. Like jewellery for your face. We hope the first thing people notice is our face so let’s make it look good! You can have so much fun playing with colours and shapes that complement you and when it comes to sunglasses — sky’s the limit! There’s a special guest in this post too wearing some pretty awesome specs! Aren’t we adorbs? Hostesses with mostesses!

Workin’ It

Today my blog turns 3! While I haven’t accomplished everything I wished when I started my blog I look back at some of my old posts and realize how much I’ve grown as a blogger. My main goal now is to blog more frequently and consistently. I hope you all continue to enjoy my posts and are inspired by my outfit choices. Thank you all for following me throughout my challenges with breast cancer and bearing with me. This blog would be nothing without all of you! And now for my French inspired, yet funky in its own way outfit…

Blogiversary

OK. They’re suede but Suede and Lace didn’t have as nice a ring to it. Close enough! We ventured into New York City for our anniversary on Saturday night. I was hoping to be able to take more pictures when we got there but traffic didn’t allow us to do that. By the time we got into the City we were just in time for our reservation and it was dark. Oh well. I wanted something pretty but not fussy. Have you noticed I’m not much of a dress girl? I got this amazing Free People lace tunic and wore it over my Rag & Bone suede pants. I love how the sleeves gently cascade over my hands. A plus to having short arms? How could I pass up an opportunity to wear the Louboutin? They go with everything!

Leather & Lace

I think I’ve had this jacket for a million years. It’s been safely tucked away in the back of the coat cupboard forever. Who would have thought that I’d be seeing ones just like it all over the place. Suede, suede and more suede in the fashion world at the moment so hey, suede booties with fringes too. The round sunnies just lent too well to the vibe not to go for it. I kept everything else pretty simple — black pants, white button down. As I sit here listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd I feel like I actually could have existed in the era. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Whatevs.

That 70s Show

Is there such thing as too much leather? Nope. Don’t think so. I actually didn’t even realize that I was mixing so many leathers. Luckily it worked. Leather pants, leather jacket, leather shoes… Huh. I’ve seen the dress over pants thing done so many ways but they always tend to come off looking a little conservative for me. This pairing included J Brand stretch leather pants and an amazing animal print Elizabeth and James shirtdress. The chilly Northeast made me throw a leather jacket over my shoulders for nighttime warmth. Sleeve use — optional.

Leathering

We all know that spring isn’t exactly my favourite time of year. Despite it’s airy, lacy qualities I felt like I was giving spring the middle finger with my dark grey and black attire. Love Free People camis that can be worn under things or on their own. So versatile for different occasions and seasons. Though I almost bought dusty pink jeans to go with the top — nope. True Northeaster. Black, black, black. And I must have switched from open toe to closed toe shoes 100 times. The weather was unseasonably warm, but I didn’t feel ready for my toes to greet the world quite yet. Truth? I switched to cutout booties before I left the house. Couldn’t do it.
