You know I couldn’t let summer go by without sneaking in my all-time favorite Canadian tux. This version is an ode to the denim skirt trend sprinkled with turquoise and silver resulting in a modern Southwestern look. In other words, denim on denim isn’t as boring and as basic as it sounds.
Hope you’re all soaking in these last few glorious days of summer!
Some things never go out of style. Black heels, Chanel bags, white shirts paired with denim bottoms….Ah, the white and denim combo. I love this classic look and rely on it for all the times I “have nothing to wear” (so basically 6 days a week). When I’m at home writing you’ll find me in pajamas a loose white tee and some baggy boyfriend jeans. On weekends, it’s a white tank and denim cut-offs. When I want to get dressed up, I’ll reach for a white button down with more fitted denim bottoms, gold accessories and a pop of red. The equation may be a simple one, but the outcomes are many.
I’m on the fringe as to whether or not I like Mondays. The planning (grown-up) side of me loves a new week because it means a fresh new list and a fresh new start to tackle it. The other part of me (the part that is lazy and could spend all day daydreaming about ice cream and faraway lands) is like “Oh H to the no! I am not getting out of bed for this!” In case that didn’t clearly explain my feelings about Monday, this outfit is here to better help demonstrate. It’s mostly black for the black hole that is known as Monday, with a pop of hot pink for the hope that a new week brings, and of course some fringe, because well, we already covered that one.
Minus this, I’ve been pretty much black and white (pun intended) with the pieces I’ve wanted to wear lately. Well, black and white, and of course stripes (but you already knew that). For someone whose world used to revolve around hot pink, thrive on patterns, and be sprinkled with glitter, it’s certainly a huge change. Maybe it means I’m getting older (nooooo!!!) and wiser (Ha!) about purchasing clothes that last multiple outfits as opposed to one. Maybe I’m bored with the been-there-done-that patterns and colors available. Or maybe, just maybe New York has creeped its way into my closet, one piece at a time, slowly but surely, making me a real New Yorker….
I’m not going to kid you. If I could get away with wearing pajamas all day long, every where I went, I most definitely would. I’d also stay in bed all day if I could, but that’s besides the point. Sadly, bed days and all-day pajamas are a fantasy of my imagine. Rompers, however, are real life and about as close as you can get to pajamas without being actual pajamas. If you want, you can even throw on a necklace and a pair of heels and make them “fancy pajamas” (you fancy, huh). In fact, rompers are so versatile and comfortable, that I’m starting to think maybe I should just replace my pajamas with rompers. After all, waking up already dressed would solve that issue of staying in bed longer, and lets be real, who doesn’t want to stay in bed longer on a Monday?!
