So Sunday at work is jeans day. YAY!! I find it so much easier to get dressed when my beloved denim is involved. It’s fun to dress up and oh so nice to mix it up and not wear yet another pair of black pants. Making denim work appropriate isn’t always an easy task though. It definitely requires a nice top and shoes. No sweatshirts and sneakers with ripped jeans in the office. Right?
One of my favourite designers for shirts is Rails. The shirts are a little pricy but the quality and design are both great. They’re known for their plaids, but have some “fancier” options too. Nice shoes? Right up my alley. These are Prada found on sale at Saks and they’re so unbelievably comfortable. The platform gives me height but keeps my foot flat. Bonus! They also opened a new Saks Off 5th close to me where I found these jeans. Probably too close!
I have to mention this necklace and my current obsession with said necklace. Have you seen the show Schitt’s Creek? Hilarious! Watch! Alexis wears this sideways “A”. I found one on the Anthropologie website and the day I got a free shipping email I made it mine!

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!

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!
