Another amazing lunch date with Nicole (last seen here & here). After lunch at Misery Loves Company (so good) we talked our friend Brett into playing photog which of course meant it turned into a total laugh-fest which is exactly what I needed. Besides, if it is the end of the world why not go out with a belly full of MLC’s famous fries, in the company of friends, wearing a fabulous pair of heels?
Cheers to the weekend and the final push before the holidays!

Dark wash skinnies, a crisp navy blazer, and classic Frye boots make for a simple, no fuss look for a hectic hump day.
What do you wear when you’re on the go all day?

Yet another modified version of jeans and a tee, my go to outfit. Since this is such a simple look I added texture with the knit hat and leather jacket and a pop of color with my wild print ALDO heels. I was on the fence about buying these heels (the print reminded me of an early 90’s track suit a neighbor used to have) until two little girls shopping with their mom told me they liked my “big girl shoes” and just like that I was sold.
What helps you decide when you’re on the fence about a purchase?

Hat: Gifted, Dollar Store Sunnies, Tee shirt & Pants: H&M, Bag: ALDO, Necklace: Dirt Chic, Ring: SZS Designs, Sandals: PaylessThis weekend was beautiful and we made sure to take advantage of the weather with a trip to the farmers market, lots of lounging in the park, drinks on the deck, and grilling out with friends.
When I bought these paisley print pants (last seen here) I was worried that I would wear them once or twice and then they would find their way into the dark depths that is the back of my closet and never see the light of day again. However after wearing them close to half a dozen times I’m still loving their leisurewear vibe and bold print.
Since the pants make such a statement on their own I kept everything else very minimal and light weight. Harem pants can make your bottom half look bigger so make sure to keep proportions in mind when you plan your outfit and choose accessories. A long or baggy top would add bulk to your frame when paired with these pants but a cropped top or well fitting tee ground the look and help create a more flattering silhouette.
What new silhouettes have you been experimenting with? What pieces would you pair with these paisley pants?
Dollar Store Sunnies, Frock: The Clothes Line, Sandals: UOThe best part about spring/summer is that looking chic is simple. All you need is a great dress, simple accessories, a swipe of cherry red lip butter, and you’re ready to go. Dresses with bold prints/bright colors are essentially complete outfits on their own making getting ready in the morning as easy as throwing on a few bangles, stepping into your shoes, and running out the door.
The last time I wore this dress (almost exactly one year ago) I styled it similarly with brown wedges, chunky earrings, and a messy bun. It’s funny looking back at my old posts, they used to be so photo/text heavy!
What easy summer outfits are you excited to wear?
If you’re a blogger what have you noticed when reviewing your older posts, has your style/voice changed dramatically?
Dollar Store Sunglasses, Tank: H&M (via The Clothes Exchange) Cardigan: TJ Maxx, Paisley Lounge Pants: H&M, Sandals: Payless Gem Ring: Charlotte Russe, Bar Ring: Downtown ThreadsI love these pants. Yes, they’re totally outrageous but they feel like pajamas and the print is perfect. To balance out the voluminous lounge pants I kept everything simple, using lightweight fabrics and a crisp, clean color palette.
While I love the leisurewear vibe these pants have I can’t wait to dress them up. I have a pair of grey suede heels and a perfectly slouchy black tank top I can’t wait to pair with these “high fashion Hammer Pants” as D calls them. It’s the perfect outfit for drinks with the girls or a night out on the town.
What “crazy” pieces have you added to your wardrobe lately?

Saturday D and I spent the day in Montreal and since Burlington is less than 100 miles from this cosmopolitan Canadian city it makes a perfect day trip. While we were there I popped into H&M and this colorful cut-out dress was one of my purchases. I am such a cat lady at heart I couldn’t resist when I saw the dresses print. Some of the cats have different colored heads and tails, giving them a certain Frankenstein vibe.
I wore this with fun feline frock to work and out to lunch with friends. When I was in the office I had a black blazer on but it was such a nice day that I shed it as soon as I stepped outside. I love Burlington this time of year. There’s always something going on: the farmer’s market on the weekends, the annual Church Street Sidewalk Sale, tons of concerts on the waterfront, and of course Brewfest.
what summer fun are you looking forward too?
Sunnies: Dollar Store, Leaf Print Tank: Downtown Threads (last seen here), Belt & Black and Silver Bracelet: Forever 21, Skirt: Thrift Shop in Maine, Heels: Target, Blue Beaded Bracelet: Gifted, Ring: Vending MachineBright and sunny Mondays always make the start of the work week a bit easier (or at least that’s what I keep telling myself.) I’m finally feeling better and after spending close to a week on my couch in my pajamas it felt good to do my hair, put on heels, and bust out a few bright and bold pieces.
I found this skirt at a small charity shop in my hometown for 75 cents and after wearing it half a dozen times I’m considering having it shortened so that is falls just above the knee. I’m hoping taking a few inches off the bottom of the skirt will leave me with a more streamlined, pencil skirt like shape. I love having thrifted pieces altered because not only do I end up with exactly what I want but I still save money, even after having pieces tailored.
How often do you have pieces tailored?
