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!

Wrap – Great Option!

Sorry Bro …

OOTD 083114

I think this outfit encompassed many blogger biggies. Feeling trendy today I guess! Mules (so can’t believe these are back, but they’re so comfy so I’m cool with it), boyfriend jeans, etc. It is so unbelievably hot and humid in New Jersey. Walking outside is like being in a sauna. I’m so ready for a cool, crisp fall day. I couldn’t possibly deal with an article of clothing that contained sleeves so I wore this awesome Free People camisole which is pretty much as close as you can get to being naked in public. I opted for my gap boyfriend jeans because the looser fit makes them more airy than skinny jeans that just pretty much adhere to you in temperatures like this. Let’s discuss the wide cuff — wide straps on the shoes = wide cuff, narrow straps = narrow cuff. Get it? It’s all about proportions. Funny thing is, my brother can’t stand, goes ballistic even, when he sees that wide cuff. I’m not sure why it annoys him so much, but he freaks! Sorry dude!

May Flowers

My mum was a kindergarten teacher. Of her many sayings, one was “April Showers Bring May Flowers”. I think that needs a revision — April showers bring May showers. At least a drought is not a possibility this year. The incessant rain did encourage these cool purple flowers to pop up in my garden though! I have no idea what they’re called — that’s mum’s job too. We also have a guest puppy today – Milo was visiting and keeping my Lubi company. As far as my outfit… I’m trying to embrace spring. The first time I put this top on my husband said — “It’s too light. It’s not you.” Huh… I guess my black wardrobe really is “who I am” though I’m trying really hard to incorporate some colour! How did I do?

Back In The Burbs

After a whirlwind weekend being back in the suburbs wasn’t such an awful thing. It never is really, but the city is just so exciting by comparison. My mum spotted this dress at Nordstrom and decided I had to have it. It has a laid-back French vibe with a little bit of festival season built in. This dress will definitely take me through a few seasons. Since it’s still chilly here I paired it with black leggings, cardigan and booties. Over the summer it will go wonderfully with flat sandals for day or wedges for night. I piled on some cool jewellery and an amazing pair of Oliver Peoples sunglasses to complete the look. Voila!
