It’s been a while. How are you? Life’s been a little crazy to say the least, but here I am. Back with an outfit. It’s been driving me nuts that I haven’t had a chance to blog. Not to mention the early darkness that makes getting home in time for pictures not so easy! Anyway, enough blither. Enjoy my black outfit that I wore out for one of my birthday dinners. People think that all black can be boring but I think not. Mixing textures and hues adds interest and you can’t go wrong for a night out in the sultry shade.
Check out my makeup too. My eyes are courtesy of e.l.f Cosmetics as part of their #elfbeautysquad for their #playbeautifully campaign. I’ve seen e.l.f in the store before but had never indulged. I have to say I’m loving the Everyday Smoky Eyeshadow Palette and the Illuminating Palette is amazing!

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.

There’s something so nonchalant, and dare I say sexy, about wearing a shirt that looks like it’s from your husband’s closet. Unbuttoned as much as possible and not too neat for even more effect. Then pair it with a fab pair of coated skinnies and some amazing flat boots and you’ve got that “model off duty” look down pat. To add even more take an amazing artsy scarf and drape it over your shoulders without even thinking about where it falls. Easy, breezy.

Fringes are huge right now in the trend department. Were they ever out? Boho essential no? I love to spin around and watch them fly around. So silly. Like they weren’t enough fun on their own I wore the cardigan over this super fun Free People slip dress styled as a top over pants. There’s so much going on in this outfit! The florals, lace, fringes… Too much? Nah. Why? Because the consistent colour pallet gives it balance and softness.
