Tunic Top and Distressed White Jeans

It’s still hot out there and for a lunch date I wanted to wear something cool and comfortable.  I purchased this tunic top from J.Crew a couple years ago and it works just great over these white distressed Banana Republic jeans.  The little clutch bag/wristlet was a great buy from the Fossil Outlet.  This bag is one of three that you can switch out merely by taking the wrist strap off and putting it on another bag.  If you wish, you can just use the bag without the strap or put one of the bags in say a larger tote.  Flexibility rules!

Until next time ♥

White Jeans and Off Shoulder Top

It’s now unofficially the start of summer and we are all ready for warmer weather and what better thing to wear with warm weather than an off shoulder top and white jeans.  Off shoulder tops are a great look for the season but they sometimes have a tendency to drift up.  This top stays in place very well unless I raise my arms above shoulder height but let’s be honest, haven’t we all worn an item at one time or another that while wearing it we needed to straighten, adjust, smooth or do something like that to it?

A great thing about this top to me is that it is long; I really like that!  That means it can be worn comfortably over shorts or jeans – be they high rise or not – half tucked or not tucked at all.  I think the tucked look is less casual and a bit sexier.

Until next time ♥

Shift dress with denim jacket

This is an old short sleeved shift dress with pockets (I love all things with pockets! even my wedding dress had pockets) that I wore with a denim jacket.  It is a very comfortable slip over your head style.  At first I was concerned about how short it was but with encouragement from the spouse I wear it with chunky heels, wedges or sandals confidently and comfortably.

Doctor Who Sweater and Flared Jeans

Cooler temperatures and overcast skies meant bring the sweaters back out.  For those not familiar with the wildly famous British sci-fi television series Doctor Who, here is something to catch you up on it.  I have been a loyal fan (aka Whovian) for a very long time now and when they came out with clothing it was a given that I had to have them!  I purchased quite a few things Doctor Who besides this sweater at Hot Topic that day.  On a side note, I’ve actually met five of the stars that have been on the show – happy fangirl 🙂

To compliment the sweater I wore a white button down shirt underneath, threw on a pair of flared jeans, some wedges and finally an umbrella as it started to rain.  That’s spring for you!

Until next time ♥

Spring is confused again!

Last weekend we were in the 80’s and it was glorious!  Today I wake up to upper 40’s and cloudy skies.  So it was back in the closet for my reliable old leather jacket.  To lift my mood from the weather being grey and chilly again, I threw on a pearl necklace and my Tory Burch glitter ballet flats.  These flats always make me feel like I could click my heels together and repeat – there’s no place like a warm beach!

And what’s not to like about a comfy pair of distressed boyfriend jeans with a long shirt on top; casual, comfortable and stylish.  Plus, the jeans were purchased last year on clearance.  Love sales!

Until next time ♥
