Pole Dancing

So this top made me feel part ballerina, part Madonna circa 1980 something. Either way — so much fun! I styled it with uneven hem, ripped knee jeans. Both are trends that are very on point (pun kind of intended) and somehow work together perfectly. Mixing too many trends in one outfit can completely backfire. You never want to look like you’re trying too hard to accomplish it all at once and trends should only be considered if they actually work for you. Trying to pull off a trend that’s out of your comfort zone will just leave you with buyer’s remorse as you gaze at a closet full of “why did I buy this?” items. It’s better to leave the house feeling confident than in an outfit that makes you self-conscious and fidgety. For me it’s edgy BOHO. (Closet full of Free People anyone?) Skinny bottoms and oversized tops are basics in my world styled in different ways to fit the mood or occasion. People ask me why I don’t show off how small I am with form-fitting clothes. The answer? It’s just not me. What are your go to outfits?

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!

The Best $25 I’ve Ever Spent

The Best $25 I’ve Ever Spent

Ever buy one of those items that just proves to be awesome even if you didn’t spend a lot of money on it? Every time I wear this dress I get so many compliments! It’s crazy. I found this dress at Forever 21 and though I don’t buy a lot there, I couldn’t resist. I fell in love with the shape. It’s like someone turned a huge scarf into a dress. It’s light and flowy and perfect for those hot summer days. Those of you who have been following me for a while know that I’m not such a fan of summer months and therefore don’t spend so much money on my spring and summer wardrobe. I really don’t like to be hot so lightweight, breezy clothing is essential in my book. A maxi is such a great way to keep cool and still look chic. I paired the dress with flat metallic sandals by Kate Spade and sparkly jewellery making it appropriate to wear out for supper. Enjoy!

It’s Official

It’s Official

You know it’s summer when I step out in white jeans. OK. I’m old school. I cannot wear white pants or shoes before Memorial Day. Everyone says it’s a fashion rule to be broken. I disagree. That said once Memorial Day does hit I can’t stop rocking the white jeans. I have “nice” ones that are work appropriate and destroyed ones that are weekend appropriate. The key to white jeans? Don’t pair them with anything that will make you look like a nurse! Unless you are one of course. Here I paired my first foray with a breezy Free People dress and my new rose gold Birkenstock sandals. Love them! Oh… you know those sunglasses with flat lenses that are so hot now? Check out these Kate Spade!

Just Jeans and a Tank

Just Jeans and a Tank

That “blogworthy” word came up when we were going out to take pictures today. My favourite stylist at the Free People store liked it and told me to definitely blog this one so here it is! The tank is, of course, Free People and the jeans are old distressed boyfriend jeans that seemed to stand the test of time. So simple yet put together. Pairings can turn jeans and a tank into an outfit. The fancy racerback bralette that shows in the back, a belt, animal print Betula sandals and jewellery which is always key to adding interest to simplicity.

Shorts or Pants?

I believe I’ve mentioned previously that I’m really not a shorts person. I own a couple pair but hardly ever wear them. It’s so hot here though! When I found these…. ports (can’t decide if they’re pants or shorts) I was in love. Shorts with an eyelet overlay to turn them into pants. Perfection! They’re even breezier than a skirt and you can’t really tell that I have absolutely no tan whatsoever. I wore shorts the other night and was ridiculed by my nephew for my ghostly gams. Geez! Working girl problems!

Lubi and Lace

Lubi and Lace

Obsessed with this maxi-tee. The see-through lace is summery and pretty while the length and cutouts add edginess. I have also worn it with a white tank underneath, but I thought that for an evening look I would wear a black tank to really accent the amazing detailing of the shirt. I wore black destroyed skinny jeans under though I can also see this really working over a pair of cutoff shorts or even as a fancy bathing suit coverup. I’m really not much of a shorts person; especially not out to supper. Oh…have I mentioned that flatforms are the best thing ever? Height without pain equals genius!
