Chambray kind of day

Sometimes you just want to be comfortable as well as stylish and this BR chambray shirt and 7 for all Mankind bootcut jean outfit fit the bill for me.  By the way, does anyone know the difference between flare and boot cut?  Curious.  I was going to wear a lighter colored shirt with the jeans but as I was going out to eat I just knew that if I wore a silk shirt or anything lighter in color that I would be a victim of Murphy’s Law and get it messy – never fails.  So I went with this jewel embellished collar chambray shirt instead.

These jeans came ridiculously long and I had to have them hemmed which took away quite a bit of the boot cut but in order to keep some of that I had to leave them a bit long which means heels must be worn so that they don’t drag on the ground.  I actually took these Prada clogs with me to the tailor to wear when they were marking off where to hem the jeans.

Wanting to stay causal I took my little Fendi bag with me.  What I love about this bag is that you can wear it cross body or if you remove the long strap you can wear it as a handbag or even a clutch.  I like multiple usage!

Flared Overalls

Overalls on adult women is a look that you either love or you don’t.  I’ve had a few pair in my time but this style is a first for me.  These Flea Market Flares from Madewell are as their name states – flares!  And unlike the old overalls from the past, these are cut to hug a woman’s curves; not too tight not too loose.  I love the silhouette these overalls create.

The amount of flare is just right for me but even at my average height, I have to wear wedges with these overalls else they will drag the ground.  I could have them hemmed but that would take away part of the flare which kind of defeats the purpose, right?  So with these it’s wedges or platforms for footwear.  We were heading out on a “date” so instead of going casual with a tee shirt, I dressed the look up a bit with a white fitted mans shirt; sleeves rolled up and unbuttoned just so.  And I’m almost never without my Fitbit HR on my wrist.  Steps count no matter where I’m stepping to.
