Ever buy one of those items that just proves to be awesome even if you didn’t spend a lot of money on it? Every time I wear this dress I get so many compliments! It’s crazy. I found this dress at Forever 21 and though I don’t buy a lot there, I couldn’t resist. I fell in love with the shape. It’s like someone turned a huge scarf into a dress. It’s light and flowy and perfect for those hot summer days. Those of you who have been following me for a while know that I’m not such a fan of summer months and therefore don’t spend so much money on my spring and summer wardrobe. I really don’t like to be hot so lightweight, breezy clothing is essential in my book. A maxi is such a great way to keep cool and still look chic. I paired the dress with flat metallic sandals by Kate Spade and sparkly jewellery making it appropriate to wear out for supper. Enjoy!

The Best $25 I’ve Ever Spent

You know it’s summer when I step out in white jeans. OK. I’m old school. I cannot wear white pants or shoes before Memorial Day. Everyone says it’s a fashion rule to be broken. I disagree. That said once Memorial Day does hit I can’t stop rocking the white jeans. I have “nice” ones that are work appropriate and destroyed ones that are weekend appropriate. The key to white jeans? Don’t pair them with anything that will make you look like a nurse! Unless you are one of course. Here I paired my first foray with a breezy Free People dress and my new rose gold Birkenstock sandals. Love them! Oh… you know those sunglasses with flat lenses that are so hot now? Check out these Kate Spade!

It’s Official

As of late I have become quite the sneaker girl. Love that the sporty trend is in because it is oh so comfortable! When Coolway asked me to try out some of their styles from their brands Coolway and Musse and Cloud I was really excited. Both brands have fabulous trendy styles including amazing must have spring booties, sandals and sneakers.

This is the first pair I’m going to share with you. These kicks are so incredibly comfortable. The canvas is breathable and the platform makes them so soft to walk around in all day. No breaking in here! Comfy from the get go! I paired them with a casual weekend outfit for a day of running around. I couldn’t resist sharing my smiling little Lubi happily out for a walk with me in my new shoes.

The best part? Not only are they reasonable but if you use code #glassesgrl on the Coolway site or Sole Identity site you can get 25% off your purchase!

Coolway and 25% Off!

I’ve been dying to go to Balthazar Restaurant in SOHO for sooooo long. Finally the hubby and I went for our anniversary. It’s so quintessentially French. If I hadn’t driven there I would have thought I was actually in Paris. It reminded us so much of places we’ve eaten in there. Loved it! If you’re in New York it’s a must!

Anyhoo… NYC outfits are so much fun to come up with. Sophisticated, trendy, edgy. Anything goes. While you can go to almost any restaurant in jeans I like to get a little more creative when I venture in. You would think that living such a short distance from the City we would go more often but it doesn’t happen so much. You can never go wrong with black leather anything. I had kind of envisioned a slip dress over the pants, but I just couldn’t find the perfect one. This tunic, however, jumped out and said “Buy me!”. I adore the blush colour and it added some lightness and femininity to the outfit. Have I ever told you how much I’m obsessed with scarves? They’re taking over the coat cupboard but I can’t help it. It’s that 3rd piece you add to your outfit for ladylike completion and there’s just so much variety and so many ways to wear them! Not sure how many more times this year I’ll get to wear my favourite Prada ankle boots. So sad!
