Coolway and 25% Off!

Coolway and 25% Off!

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!

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!

What is it about ripped up jeans that’s so cool? I can’t stop wearing these. Not only are they cool, but they’re so comfortable! Perfect amount of stretch. I know Abercrombie & Fitch isn’t having the moment it did some time ago, but their jeans fit and they look good and they’re reasonable! The rest of the outfit? Free People on top — of course. I’m attempting to incorporate some colour into my spring wardrobe! And the adorable little booties with the fringe are by Ash. Love that brand. Cool styles and comfortable. Don’t forget your accessories people! They can really make an outfit and complete the vibe! Mirrored sunglasses in a complementary colour are a start. They always say not to overdo it on the jewellery. I get it, but don’t necessarily agree. If it works go for it! Layer your necklaces and pile on the bracelets. No worries!

I guess I just haven’t been in the mood lately. Haven’t been able to motivate myself. Sometimes it’s just too much pressure to get up every day and be “blogworthy”. It’s hard feeling like you can never repeat an outfit or feeling like you have to look great every single day. Of course you have to get up and put on something but sometimes you just look in the mirror and don’t feel it. Hence, #bloggerburnout. Alas, I miss all of you and I miss posting my outfits. It took a hiatus to realise this! Therefore I will be back at you with outfits galore. I hope! Since spring hasn’t actually sprung here in the northeast this outfit embraces some springier items while still being 50 degree farenheit temperature appropriate. Over-the-knee boots can still be springy if they’re the right material and colour and are worn with maybe something floral or light. First time embracing the “cold shoulder” look. You like?

The Uniform

Or shall we call it my signature style? Dress in what feels right and makes you feel good. Embrace your style and work with it. Make it yours. I’m going to call my style edgy boho. Probably not really a thing but it combines my love for flowy and black everything. A syndrome created by living in the Northeast section of the country. Black, black and more black. Extra points if it’s leather, faux or real. I’m completely obsessed with these Free People trapeze slips. I have them in a variety of different colours – not only black. Dress ‘em up. Dress ‘em down. In the summer you can wear them alone and in the winter you can throw a sweater or thermal over them and voila… instant outfit!

So the calendar says spring. The thermometer says otherwise. Until the two reach an agreement I’m sticking with my boots and sweaters. I’m one of the few people who actually doesn’t look forward to spring and warm weather. Boots, sweaters, faux fur coats, scarves, layers — these are a few of my favourite things. Sorry everyone but I’m holding out as long as I can. I added the smallest touch of the new season with this amazing flower necklace my mum and dad brought back from France. Otherwise, in true Northeast spirit I’m in all black. All black doesn’t have to be boring if you mix up textures and prints as I did here with knits, lace and leather. The slightly edgier over-the-knee boots with my otherwise boho outfit added a little twist. Enjoy!
