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!

Me in Monochrome

Yet again, black and white. At least the rain stopped for long enough to pop out and take some pictures! And the sun peeked out just long enough to wear these amazing sunglasses. So French no?

I’m so excited for fall. I’m getting out the booties and incorporating them whenever I can. This is a new Dolce Vita pair with nice silver accents on the toe and heel. At a first glance this is a cool pair of animal print coated jeans. Guess what? Flip them inside out and they’re coated black jeans. Great for travelling! Bluelab does a whole line of reversible jeans. Check them out! BTW… I can’t wait to get my bangs trimmed!
