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!

Coolway and 25% Off!

As of late I have become quite the sneaker girl. Love that the sporty trend is in because it is oh so comfortable! When Coolway asked me to try out some of their styles from their brands Coolway and Musse and Cloud I was really excited. Both brands have fabulous trendy styles including amazing must have spring booties, sandals and sneakers.

This is the first pair I’m going to share with you. These kicks are so incredibly comfortable. The canvas is breathable and the platform makes them so soft to walk around in all day. No breaking in here! Comfy from the get go! I paired them with a casual weekend outfit for a day of running around. I couldn’t resist sharing my smiling little Lubi happily out for a walk with me in my new shoes.

The best part? Not only are they reasonable but if you use code #glassesgrl on the Coolway site or Sole Identity site you can get 25% off your purchase!

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!

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!

Feeling a Vibe

Possibly the last cool spring evening. So sad. I wish I could wear outfits like this in the summer but I just get way too overheated. I’m always hot. On another note — my pin straight hair seems to have decided that it would like to be wavy. Beachy cool or messy? What do you think?

Of course being the shopping diva that I am I hit the Memorial Day sales, like all weekend — #bloggerproblems! This tunic was on such super sale at Free People that I couldn’t leave it there. It just wouldn’t have been right! And it’s so soft and pretty. The new store that opened near me is amazing and the staff is awesome. I had a great time shopping and trying things on! The brand and the store create such a great vibe. I can’t get enough. Too bad it’s not actually free! More to come — must space out my exciting new finds!

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

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…
