Holiday Cas’

Not every night during holiday season calls for full blown cocktail attire. For dinner with friends I wanted something fun and holiday”ish” but we weren’t going anywhere fancy. Layers are key for me. Even when it’s chilly out I’m always way too hot when  I’m inside. While most of my outfit was in accordance with my standard black uniform, the top added shine and fun fringes. People make fun of us Northeasters for all of our black clothing, but there are so many pluses to the colour. Black is chic, slimming and elongating. When black pants are paired with black shoes or boots with one seamlessly fading into the other they trick the eye seeing long thin legs. Not so bad huh?

Fall For It

The second the temperature drops the tiniest little bit I get completely psyched for fall. I feel more like myself in dark colours and boots. I started out getting dressed this evening in much lighter coloured garb. I couldn’t do it. I kept looking in the mirror and wondering who was staring back at me. I’ve realized that you should stay true to who you are — doesn’t only apply to outfits. If you’re not comfortable in an outfit don’t wear it out. More importantly, don’t buy it. Only spend your money on pieces that call to you and make you feel awesome!

Grey & Grommets

Such a hot day — not a fan! I really don’t like anything about this weather. It’s hot and sticky and there are way too many bugs. If I could, I would hibernate from June through October. I’m the opposite of a bear! My chihuahua on the other hand quite enjoys this heat. Anyhoo, I found something nice and cool to wear so I wouldn’t melt!
