In the spirit of branching out in the pants department I went for these cropped jeans with a slight bell at the bottom. I’m into trying some new things lately. It’s fun to give different trends a shot and see how it works for you. Breaking wardrobe monotony can make getting dressed fun and exciting again. We all have our comfort zones though. Mine — Free People anything. Yeah. The outfit is all by them once again. #sorrynotsorry How could I pass up this amazing free flowing poncho? Such excitement about a summer day cool enough to wear it! The fabric is light so it’s not too warm when the sun comes out and you can ignore the hole at the top and wear it as a fabulous oversized scarf too. Boho chic is just my thing. What can I say?

Love. This. Trend. Flowy pants rock. It feels so fresh to wear something other than my skinny jeans. Not giving them up, but a break is nice and they’re much more light and airy in this awful northeast heat and humidity. The rope belt actually came with the pants. I usually get rid of belts that are attached at purchase because for the most part they’re cheesy, but go Zara ’cause this one’s adorable! Confession… I have to wear heels, platforms, flatforms or something so that I don’t trip on the pants! The high waist is also the only way you’ll ever see me in a crop top. I’m not one to walk around with my midriff saying hello to the world. I admit that it took me a while to embrace the crop. I was having such a hard time with the concept. I’m the flowy top girl. The fact that this one wasn’t too fitted was the selling point and the lace pattern made for a fun mix with those adorable little polka dots. Say hi to Lubi! Enjoy!

OK. This is getting ridiculous. I sound like a broken record. Today’s #OOTD is from none other than… Free People! Sorry. I really have to stop. Their clothes are just so cool, and comfy, and well made. Can’t help it! I am the queen of the “flowy” top and they make so many awesome ones, not to mention their perfect distressed denim. White jeans in the summer just give such a fresh look to an outfit but the distressing on these makes them more fun and not so buttoned up or nurse like. Confession — I have them in three colours.

I feel like I sound like an advertisement for Free People. It’s bordering on obsession. I can’t help how much I love everything by them! This tank is a new and super reasonable addition to their lineup. I restrained myself and bought only one colour. See… I can do it. They also have the best pretty, seamless and comfortable intimates. I had no idea! How neat is this showing out the back of the tank? It also doesn’t hurt after all of the breast cancer surgeries. And for a chilly spring evening this cocoon wrap does the trick without overheating. Perfect.

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!

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!

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…
