If you’re gonna do it, do it. These pants are definitely extreme and I adore them. It’s like wearing pyjamas and they’re perfect for a hot day because they don’t cling and have plenty of room for air circulation! I’m not usually a “red” girl but that very well may change based on my love for these pants. Since the bottom half of my outfit was such a statement I paired it with a very simple top and did the famous half tuck so that I didn’t look like a balloon. I also chose jewellery and sunglasses that complemented the boho vibe. Even my hair was in the mood. Hope you love these pants as much as I do!

We all know that spring isn’t exactly my favourite time of year. Despite it’s airy, lacy qualities I felt like I was giving spring the middle finger with my dark grey and black attire. Love Free People camis that can be worn under things or on their own. So versatile for different occasions and seasons. Though I almost bought dusty pink jeans to go with the top — nope. True Northeaster. Black, black, black. And I must have switched from open toe to closed toe shoes 100 times. The weather was unseasonably warm, but I didn’t feel ready for my toes to greet the world quite yet. Truth? I switched to cutout booties before I left the house. Couldn’t do it.

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.

I think this outfit encompassed many blogger biggies. Feeling trendy today I guess! Mules (so can’t believe these are back, but they’re so comfy so I’m cool with it), boyfriend jeans, etc. It is so unbelievably hot and humid in New Jersey. Walking outside is like being in a sauna. I’m so ready for a cool, crisp fall day. I couldn’t possibly deal with an article of clothing that contained sleeves so I wore this awesome Free People camisole which is pretty much as close as you can get to being naked in public. I opted for my gap boyfriend jeans because the looser fit makes them more airy than skinny jeans that just pretty much adhere to you in temperatures like this. Let’s discuss the wide cuff — wide straps on the shoes = wide cuff, narrow straps = narrow cuff. Get it? It’s all about proportions. Funny thing is, my brother can’t stand, goes ballistic even, when he sees that wide cuff. I’m not sure why it annoys him so much, but he freaks! Sorry dude!

OK, not me… the shirt. Another find from my love, the Savvy Department at Nordstrom. I do find it glamorous when at least part of your outfit is oversized and leaves something to the imagination. I’ve never been a big fan of body conscious or “body con” dressing. Putting it all out there from the get go is so not me. I do believe, however, that when you are wearing something oversized it has to be styled properly so that you don’t look like a frump. Since the shirt was the focal point of the outfit I paired it with simple rolled up jeans and nude wedges. Of course I piled on the jewellery though. Like my new watch?

I’m so sorry I haven’t been around in a bit. You know, sometimes life just gets too busy! Now that I’m back from my mini vacation I’m hoping to get it together again! I wore this outfit to a casual dinner one night. In general, I’m not a huge Macy’s shopper, but they carry Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply and I’m a little obsessed. I’m also probably the only style blogger on the face of the earth who has never worn anything Zara — until now. I put these jeans on and I was hooked! Can’t wait to go back! The blazer — I’ve had it forever. My daddy bought it for me in France years ago, but it’s a really good one and will remain a closet staple probably forever. Lubi was also stylin’ that evening. It was time for a bath and a new spring outfit. How cute is this bow tie?

My mum was a kindergarten teacher. Of her many sayings, one was “April Showers Bring May Flowers”. I think that needs a revision — April showers bring May showers. At least a drought is not a possibility this year. The incessant rain did encourage these cool purple flowers to pop up in my garden though! I have no idea what they’re called — that’s mum’s job too. We also have a guest puppy today – Milo was visiting and keeping my Lubi company. As far as my outfit… I’m trying to embrace spring. The first time I put this top on my husband said — “It’s too light. It’s not you.” Huh… I guess my black wardrobe really is “who I am” though I’m trying really hard to incorporate some colour! How did I do?
