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!

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!

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!

White No More

White No More

The summer has come to an end my friends. At least according to the calendar… someone should inform the weather. It’s hot! It’s actually hotter now that it was all summer. I’m so excited for fall fashion. Could we cool it off a little please? This outfit was my celebratory last white gauzy top, white sandals and white watch day. I know that these days they say it’s ok to ignore the rules and wear your white jeans and such after Labour Day, but I can’t do it. My mother appears like a little devil over my head asking “Are you wearing white pants after Labour Day?” I guess I’ll find other ways to be a fashion rebel! On another note … Have you seen the new Prada Eyewear collection? Amazing!!!!!

CaliMojos

So we all have flip flops right? What could you possibly do to make a flip flop interesting and fun? We’ve all seen them embellished, but wait… how about if they changed colour? Something different! A conversation starter at the beach or the pool! I was excited when CaliMojos asked me to review their new colour changing version. I picked the cutest pair with cheerful butterflies. They’re one colour inside and as soon as you step outside they change to a new bright hue! Even if you just step into the shade they immediately start to change. The design is also adorable with a double strap and a bedazzling jewel. Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you how comfortable they are! BTW… I really need some colour myself! Time to go to the pool in my new flip flops and work on that.

New In NARS

Yesterday I got some much needed “me” time and took a trip to my favourite mall, The Mall at Short Hills. While walking through Saks Fifth Avenue I was stopped by two super nice girls at the NARS counter who offered to do my makeup. Why not? It’s always fun to get pampered a little and look great when you’re done right?

Not only did they do my makeup, they taught me how to do exactly what they were doing! It’s great to leave looking fabulous but it’s even better to be able to duplicate the look at home. Doreen would do one side and then give me the brushes, showing me which sizes to use, and how to use them effectively for each step and I would do the other side. She emphasized the importance of highlighting and bronzing in the proper areas to make you glow and look alive. Perhaps the most important thing I finally learned was how to shape my eyebrows. Eyebrows have always been the most difficult part of my makeup routine. Doreen showed me how to set the points for each end and that perfect little arch in the centre so that I would appear bright-eyed and bushy tailed! They had just come out with a new eyeshadow pallet that gave you five colours to try for a reasonable price. A no brainer. When you first look at this blush in it’s cute little container you think “Holy Cow. That’s bright!”, but applied properly it’s actually amazing! I even got some fun little goodies with my purchase. Thanks NARS and Saks! So much fun!

Swag!

Swag!

These J Brand jeans have some serious swag! As do my Gucci shades! In fact, I just must have been in a swaggy mood today! Black and gold is such a great, rich combination. It makes me feel “dressed”. I found the jeans at the Saks sale and scooped them right up. I knew they’d go with this top or any other black top for that matter. I just wasn’t in a heels kind of mood so I went with flat sandals, but stayed true to the colour scheme. These sunglasses aren’t so dark so they’re perfect for a kind of cloudy day when you still feel like you need some protection but need to see where you’re going. Important no?
