Glamorous

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?

Time, Time, Time

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?

May Flowers

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?

Boho

While I’m the furthest thing possible from a hippie, I do love a good boho chic outfit. Free people always makes the best flowy tops. I have to be careful not to buy too many! I paired my boho top with not so boho coated skinny jeans but did play up the vibe with some cool beaded jewellery and fringed booties. I like taking things to a new level, mixing and matching styles to make them my own. Creativity goes a long way and can make your outfit really stand out from the crowd.
