Summer Black #OOTD

Really, it’s OK to wear black in the summer. It may not be the brightest (literally and figuratively) choice on a scorching hot day, but for a night out when it’s not too balmy, why not? Black is always chic and black and gold, even better. You know I’m a fan. I couldn’t resist this top when I saw it at Nordstrom on sale in the Savvy Department. Black, shiny, fringes — a perfect trifecta? Those fringes make it not seem cropped too. Yeah! Of course I picked shiny black and gold accessories and my favourite Italia Independent sunglasses. They were the first ones I got from that company and I still absolutely love them! They’re actually flocked velvet and they’re so light and comfortable that you don’t even know they’re on your face! Do you still wear black in the summer?

The New Girl(s)

I know. It’s been a while. Sorry about that. I had to take some time to recover from my most recent surgery. After almost a year since my breast cancer diagnosis I’m ready to introduce you to the new girls. I finally have my permanent implants and after seeing 27 doctors (OK, slight exaggeration) this week, it looks as if I’m healthy! It’s also so much easier to get dressed! While I’m not completely done, I’m hoping the worst is behind me and I can start to get my life back.

This outfit has a couple trends encompassed within. A crop top and boyfriend jeans. I have to admit that the crop top trend sent shivers down my spine. Really? I’m not one to walk around half naked! Done properly, or at least what I deem to be appropriately, I’ve found that it can actually be cute. This top, for example sticks with my whole “flowy” personality and barely shows any midriff unless you catch a breeze. Even then, only the slightest sliver of skin pops out. Perfect! I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect loose, comfy boyfriend jeans for a while. Believe it or not — Gap! Haven’t been in there in ages, but I’m so in love with these. The looseness and the shredding is also a much cooler (literally, as in temperature) option for summer. Buy them a size too big for extra effect.

Petal Pusher

I’m doing a pretty good job of this colour thing! Though this dress was also available in black, I chose to buy it in pink. It was being worn to a communion with a luncheon afterward, so I decided that for daytime it should be something colourful, pretty and soft. I’m not usually a “dress” girl. I don’t find them creative enough. Once you’ve worn it that’s it. No other way to style it really. I do see their place in the world though. Sometimes you just need that look. The Rubik’s Cube bag is from this super fun store in Italy called Carpisa. I’ve had it forever but I still get so many compliments every time I use it. Cute right?

Ooh Shiny!

My anniversary and my in-laws anniversary falls during the same week. Every year we try to plan a special dinner to celebrate. This year we went to the Capital Grille in New York. I wish I could have taken my photos in the City, but the weather, once again was stormy so I didn’t want to lug the camera in and have to run through New York in the rain with said camera. Always happens to me! Our weather truly stinks! One of the fun things about going out in a city is that you can be more adventurous with your outfits. There aren’t so many places out here in the ‘burbs where I would be comfortable wearing gold jeans. I love an opportunity to go a little crazy with my clothes!
