Those Sleeves!

I know. The same checked blazer has been everywhere, on everyone. “Me too” clothes. I didn’t even want one until I saw these amazing sleeves. OK. So they’re not practical for work because they’re kinda huge and get in the way, but so much fun for going out! I went with a velvet tank underneath because I’m notoriously hot in restaurants and paired with boyfriend jeans and loafers for an upscale casual vibe.

The new jewellery is my anniversary gift from my hubby and I love it! Swarovski crystal for our crystal anniversary. It’s so beautiful and I can see wearing it with really dressy outfits too! Enjoy!

Red Bottoms

Shoes, shoes, shoes. A blessing and a curse. I can no longer wear heels. Fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis have rendered that impossible so I’ve found myself living in sneakers. Fortunately the athleisure trend is holding strong, but there are times when you have to look like human and need “real” shoes. I’ve termed them fancy flats. Of course being the princess that I am I always want something amazing that never usually goes on sale, but lucky for me (and not so lucky for hubby) the Saks a block from my hotel in NYC was having a 70% off sale. I kinda bought two pairs. Hey… I saved money right? 😉 Here’s the first. Enjoy!

Leather & Lace

Leather & Lace

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!

Holiday Time

Office holiday parties require a certain amount of etiquette and panache. I actually bought this dress for another event and ended up wearing it to my husband’s holiday party as well. I love it when you get more than one use out of a dress. They cost a lot of money to just hang in a closet forever. Everyone agreed that this dress is just “so me”. Flowy. Of course. I searched and tried on, rinse and repeat. This gem was hunted down at BCBG and much to my surprise when I arrived at the register it was half off. Go me! It is an LBD but in this case the “B” stands for blue. It’s this fabulous steel shade and looks great paired with black tights and shoes and silver jewellery. It could also totally be worn in multiple seasons. In the summer skip the tights and pair with sky high, strappy sandals. Voila.
