Fringe Benefits

Fringe Benefits

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.

Holiday Cas’

Not every night during holiday season calls for full blown cocktail attire. For dinner with friends I wanted something fun and holiday”ish” but we weren’t going anywhere fancy. Layers are key for me. Even when it’s chilly out I’m always way too hot when  I’m inside. While most of my outfit was in accordance with my standard black uniform, the top added shine and fun fringes. People make fun of us Northeasters for all of our black clothing, but there are so many pluses to the colour. Black is chic, slimming and elongating. When black pants are paired with black shoes or boots with one seamlessly fading into the other they trick the eye seeing long thin legs. Not so bad huh?

#OOTD

#OOTD

Casual Sunday doesn’t have to mean boring. If look good, you feel good. This outfit was completely casual and comfortable but cute and put together at the same time. It is possible! On my way through Nordstrom, which is the best place to park at the mall, I walked by this #OOTD tee shirt and couldn’t resist. Hey, it’s what I do right? I made a mental note to pick it up on the way back after I accomplished what I had really gone to the mall for in the first place. I now don’t even remember what that was. Then I walked by the sweater. Uh oh… Loved that too. It was bright and happy and fluffy. Mental note number two. When I walked back into Nordstrom said sweater was missing. Where had it gone? It was there an hour ago! I walked through in a panic that I’d missed it only to find it on… the clearance rack! Score! Less than half price! That said, I did buy it in two colours, but it was still less than the price of one just an hour prior!

Happy Birthday!

So it’s taken me a week, but this is what I wore to supper the night of my birthday. What number you ask? I’ll never tell. I have recently become a little obsessed with Urban Outfitters. They have an amazing selection of oversized, asymmetrical sweaters and tops and I want one of each! I snatched this baby up a couple of weeks ago and saved it to wear on my birthday with these beyond awesome Rag & Bone teal suede pants that I’ve been saving for a super long time! It’s kind of a personal tradition of mine to wear something new and special on my birthday. Do any of you do things like this?
