Heat Wave Romper

The Northeast has been nothing short of brutal when it comes to heat and humidity. Even Lubi couldn’t take it and he loves the heat! What does one wear? Nothing that touches you anywhere! Enter the romper. I found this adorable little number at the #ZaraSale. How can you go wrong for a whopping $13.00? It’s super light weight and how cute are the tassles on the sides? It’s been my go to for these scorching days. This one is sold out online but maybe you’ll get lucky and find one in the store. Also totally obsessed with these rose gold Birkenstocks. Actually, I’m pretty much obsessed with everything rose gold. The soft footbed keeps your feet cool and comfortable too!

Tunic Versatility

Every once in a blue moon we get a nice cool summer evening. Enter the tunic. Offering versatility in seasonal and styling options it’s a must have in my closet. For summer, I chose to wear it with white distressed jeans and slip on loafers for a laid back, chic vibe. I can see it working for fall with perhaps leggings and an awesome pair of boots. (BTW can’t wait for fall!) Oh.. Don’t forget your accessories! Really. They can make an outfit. That age-old rule of taking off one piece before you leave the house. Forget it! An amazing pair of sunglasses will complete the look. Essential!

Coolway and 25% Off!

As of late I have become quite the sneaker girl. Love that the sporty trend is in because it is oh so comfortable! When Coolway asked me to try out some of their styles from their brands Coolway and Musse and Cloud I was really excited. Both brands have fabulous trendy styles including amazing must have spring booties, sandals and sneakers.

This is the first pair I’m going to share with you. These kicks are so incredibly comfortable. The canvas is breathable and the platform makes them so soft to walk around in all day. No breaking in here! Comfy from the get go! I paired them with a casual weekend outfit for a day of running around. I couldn’t resist sharing my smiling little Lubi happily out for a walk with me in my new shoes.

The best part? Not only are they reasonable but if you use code #glassesgrl on the Coolway site or Sole Identity site you can get 25% off your purchase!

I’ve been dying to go to Balthazar Restaurant in SOHO for sooooo long. Finally the hubby and I went for our anniversary. It’s so quintessentially French. If I hadn’t driven there I would have thought I was actually in Paris. It reminded us so much of places we’ve eaten in there. Loved it! If you’re in New York it’s a must!

Anyhoo… NYC outfits are so much fun to come up with. Sophisticated, trendy, edgy. Anything goes. While you can go to almost any restaurant in jeans I like to get a little more creative when I venture in. You would think that living such a short distance from the City we would go more often but it doesn’t happen so much. You can never go wrong with black leather anything. I had kind of envisioned a slip dress over the pants, but I just couldn’t find the perfect one. This tunic, however, jumped out and said “Buy me!”. I adore the blush colour and it added some lightness and femininity to the outfit. Have I ever told you how much I’m obsessed with scarves? They’re taking over the coat cupboard but I can’t help it. It’s that 3rd piece you add to your outfit for ladylike completion and there’s just so much variety and so many ways to wear them! Not sure how many more times this year I’ll get to wear my favourite Prada ankle boots. So sad!

What is it about ripped up jeans that’s so cool? I can’t stop wearing these. Not only are they cool, but they’re so comfortable! Perfect amount of stretch. I know Abercrombie & Fitch isn’t having the moment it did some time ago, but their jeans fit and they look good and they’re reasonable! The rest of the outfit? Free People on top — of course. I’m attempting to incorporate some colour into my spring wardrobe! And the adorable little booties with the fringe are by Ash. Love that brand. Cool styles and comfortable. Don’t forget your accessories people! They can really make an outfit and complete the vibe! Mirrored sunglasses in a complementary colour are a start. They always say not to overdo it on the jewellery. I get it, but don’t necessarily agree. If it works go for it! Layer your necklaces and pile on the bracelets. No worries!

The Uniform

Or shall we call it my signature style? Dress in what feels right and makes you feel good. Embrace your style and work with it. Make it yours. I’m going to call my style edgy boho. Probably not really a thing but it combines my love for flowy and black everything. A syndrome created by living in the Northeast section of the country. Black, black and more black. Extra points if it’s leather, faux or real. I’m completely obsessed with these Free People trapeze slips. I have them in a variety of different colours – not only black. Dress ‘em up. Dress ‘em down. In the summer you can wear them alone and in the winter you can throw a sweater or thermal over them and voila… instant outfit!

Easy Chic

Sometimes simplicity is the way to go. I have a hard time not adding that quintessential 3rd piece so a wrap or scarf just adds completion and finesse. These vegan leather leggings were on such sale that they almost paid me to take them out of the store. They’re Blank NYC and started out relatively expensive. There’s nothing like getting that amazing deal on an item of clothing you know you’ll wear over and over and over. Go me! I paired them with a simple long sleeved tee but I’m sure I’ll wear them with fancier tops as well. It’s all about versatility! Tip – when your pants and boots are the same colour it elongates your legs!
