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.

Ever walk through a store and something just catches your eye and you know you have to have it? This shaggy sweater vest which reminds me of a sheep had my name written all over it! Of course the tunic I’m wearing underneath was hanging next to it and it went too perfectly to just leave hanging there. Story of my life — shopaholic blogger problems. I decided to stick with a neutral grey palate throughout which included these amazing coated/waxed AG pants (if I ever see them in the store again I will buy an extra!), and my grey suede Prada wedge boots which give you height but are totally comfortable for walking. Important today because in a moment of grace earlier on I drove my knee straight into the corner of the coffee table and it’s not moving so well at the moment. I figured wedges were a safer bet than heels. Good thing it’s not summer or you may have all had to see the pretty bruise! I’m thinking of replacing all of our square furniture with round items so as not to have dangerous corners!

Cherry Blossoms

It’s that time of year. Everything is in bloom. I have to admit — it’s pretty. My allergies, however, not so pretty. I’ll try to admire the flora from afar. Per usual I paired everything with black. Northeastern girl — can’t help it even in spring. Black, black, black. I even consciously tell myself not to buy black when I go to the store, but I can’t help it! It’s classy and goes with everything and there’s just so much of it! I dug this blazer out of my closet after quite a long time. Unlike the usual suspect it’s soft and flowy and shiny. My new watch and my Chuck Chucks bracelet went perfectly with my new blouse. Actually, my velvet sunglasses went too. Go me! It’s almost warm enough that I’ll have to give up my booties soon so I have to get every single use out of them that I can. I so miss them in summer. I was in quite the Marc by Marc Jacobs mood today. You’ll see.
