Extreme Wide Leg!

Extreme Wide Leg!

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!

A Different Flow

A Different Flow

Love. This. Trend. Flowy pants rock. It feels so fresh to wear something other than my skinny jeans. Not giving them up, but a break is nice and they’re much more light and airy in this awful northeast heat and humidity. The rope belt actually came with the pants. I usually get rid of belts that are attached at purchase because for the most part they’re cheesy, but go Zara ’cause this one’s adorable! Confession… I have to wear heels, platforms, flatforms or something so that I don’t trip on the pants! The high waist is also the only way you’ll ever see me in a crop top. I’m not one to walk around with my midriff saying hello to the world. I admit that it took me a while to embrace the crop. I was having such a hard time with the concept. I’m the flowy top girl. The fact that this one wasn’t too fitted was the selling point and the lace pattern made for a fun mix with those adorable little polka dots. Say hi to Lubi! Enjoy!

PJs

I’ve decided that the pajama dressing fad is very cool. You put on a silky, totally comfortable outfit with nice shoes and some fun accessories and you’re dressed. Easy, breezy, done. I found this outfit on super sale and had to have it. I’ve become a huge fan of the brand WAYF since I first saw it in the Nordstrom Savvy department. Their pieces are always current, fun and well made. More often than not, the piece that catches my eye on a walk through is by them. Since it’s still on the chilly side here and I haven’t yet dug out my open toe shoes, I paired this digital print outfit with my favourite cutout booties. I went with springy, floral jewellery in complementary colours and yet another amazing pair of Italia Independent mirrored sunglasses. Enjoy!

Reflections

One of the hottest trends in sun wear right now is mirrored lenses. Not just the standard mirror that you would see on a C.H.I.P.S show from the 70s. I’m talking about cool mirrors in a rainbow of colours. I recently got these I-Metal Thermic glasses from Italia Independent. They change from black to purple animal print in the heat and the lenses are a fabulous purple mirror. How cool is that? It wasn’t hot enough out for them to change, but even in their black cool state they’re awesome. I wore them with a cool pair of houndstooth silk track pants and an open weave short-sleeved sweater and cutout booties for a trendy fun evening. Enjoy!

OMJ!

That stands for Oh My, Jeans! It’s not often that I go “out” in jeans. I usually reserve them for daytime weekend wear. This Saturday, however, that changed. I finally found a pair of real blue jeans with a super fit and they are so comfortable and soft. Usually the normal jeans aren’t on sale. These ones are Joe’s and they were in fact on sale at Nordstrom this weekend. Mine! I had to hit the mall with all the amazing sales going on. I got this top too at Neiman Marcus on crazy sale. I’ve become a fan of Clover Canyon which is artsy and flowy and fun — right up my alley. We were enjoying a scotch before going out for supper and of course Lubi couldn’t resist getting in on the action. He’s just too cute to resist!

Home Sweet Home

OK. So I don’t actually live at the Mall at Short Hills though my husband sometimes wonders. I do love it though. It’s pretty and they have great stores. Last night we were actually just there for dinner not a shopping spree. Surprise. I couldn’t resist taking pictures in front of this amazing fountain. The fountain has been replaced since I was little but now with the infinity pool effect it’s actually even cooler. The occasion didn’t call for anything too fussy so I actually wore jeans and paired them with a cute top and cute shoes to dress them up a little bit. People were watching me have my pictures taken wondering if I was someone they should know. Um… Probably not!

I’m Back Baby!

I’m Back Baby!

Hi everyone! It’s been so long since my last post. I’m so sorry for my absence. For those of you who missed it, or are just joining me, my last post explained that I had a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction because I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The good news… I’m clean! The cancer is out and I’m going to be fine. After many complications and a second surgery, I am left for now with one temporary implant and one prosthesis. I still have a couple surgeries ahead of me, but in the long run I’ll be healthy. For now, let’s concentrate on the outfit challenges that I am facing.

I’m confined to a sports type bra to hold everything where it needs to be. Sexy? No! I have found that the Genie Bra is the most comfortable thing I can find at the moment. You step into it as opposed to having to lift your arms and pull it over your head. After these surgeries it is impossible for quite some time to lift your arms up over your head. This causes issues with the types of tops one can wear too. Either the neckline has to be loose enough to step into or your top has to button or zipper somewhere.

This top zippers up the back. I kind of need help getting out of it, but at least it is possible and I’m finding ways to look as cute as I can! I love the animal print and the cobalt accents too!
