Birthday Black and e.l.f

It’s been a while. How are you? Life’s been a little crazy to say the least, but here I am. Back with an outfit. It’s been driving me nuts that I haven’t had a chance to blog. Not to mention the early darkness that makes getting home in time for pictures not so easy! Anyway, enough blither. Enjoy my black outfit that I wore out for one of my birthday dinners. People think that all black can be boring but I think not. Mixing textures and hues adds interest and you can’t go wrong for a night out in the sultry shade.

Check out my makeup too. My eyes are courtesy of e.l.f Cosmetics as part of their #elfbeautysquad for their #playbeautifully campaign. I’ve seen e.l.f in the store before but had never indulged. I have to say I’m loving the Everyday Smoky Eyeshadow Palette and the Illuminating Palette is amazing!

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!

Workin’ It

This past Sunday was reserved for a special event at work. You get to see me in action. This is what I do — where I do my magic. I sell frames and make people look awesome! (Or at least I try!) Glasses are such an important accessory. Like jewellery for your face. We hope the first thing people notice is our face so let’s make it look good! You can have so much fun playing with colours and shapes that complement you and when it comes to sunglasses — sky’s the limit! There’s a special guest in this post too wearing some pretty awesome specs! Aren’t we adorbs? Hostesses with mostesses!

Blogiversary

Blogiversary

Today my blog turns 3! While I haven’t accomplished everything I wished when I started my blog I look back at some of my old posts and realize how much I’ve grown as a blogger. My main goal now is to blog more frequently and consistently. I hope you all continue to enjoy my posts and are inspired by my outfit choices. Thank you all for following me throughout my challenges with breast cancer and bearing with me. This blog would be nothing without all of you! And now for my French inspired, yet funky in its own way outfit…
