I get bored sometimes. Not in the way a child does when they have nothing to do, or the way a cubicle worker does when he stares blankly at his computer. Rather, I get bored with my look… Some people pick a signature look and stick with it. (Hello Michael Kors). But for some reason, I can’t seem to do that. This is why I am constantly adding to my closet, changing my hair cut and color, and getting tattoos or piercings… But aside from boredom, I want a haircut because this full head of hair is driving me crazy in the summer heat! If only my bangs could magically disappear… Anyway, here are some styles I am considering/wish I could rock/want your opinion on:
I desperately wish I could pull off a super short hairstyle…
Or should I just suffer through the heat and humidity and keep the look I have? I could always change the color again if my boredom hits a peak… Thoughts in the comments, please!
I spent much of my weekend recovering from a sprained ankle… This is what I get for ignoring my washed-up athlete status and challenging the manfriend to a friendly game of basketball. The rest of the weekend was spent shopping in Soho… It was slow and painful, but I will fight through almost anything if the opportunity for new purchases is involved…
Here is what I took home:
Of course none of these items were on my list, so I will need to hit the stores again soon… muahaha 🙂
Trendy and Tailored. Taking on the jumpsuit trend is not easy. The most flattering shape is one that cinches at the waist, creating that covetable hour-glass figure. Another thing to look for is a straight or slightly tapered leg line, because this is a more modern cut. I chose a jumpsuit in black, because it is a bit easier to pull off and more versatile than the orange jumpsuit Charlize is wearing. I recommend keeping the accessories light and simple, as she has done.
Simple and Streamlined. The Stella McCartney ensemble Charlize is wearing above is also hard to duplicate. Look for a faux wrap tulip skirt, like the one shown. The draping of this skirt is a figure flattering style for those of us who are not 5’10”. Pick a top in a similar or matching hue, and add interest with strong accessories like a black wedge bootie and a silver collar necklace. In both looks, Charlize is sporting jet black nails, which keeps her style perfectly polished.
While perusing my June issue of InStyle magazine yesterday, I commented to my manfriend that I have a girl crush on Charlize Theron. Without hesitation, he came back with “who doesn’t?” Well great, because I will certainly never look like her… Oh well. We can all still dream. Anyway, here are some of my favorite Charlize fashion moments.
Stay tuned for a follow up on how you can get her amazing style!
I made the big move to NYC last week, and I had a great weekend exploring our neighborhoods with the manfriend. Yesterday, we grabbed coffee and unbeatable New York bagels, and we hit a park near my apartment to enjoy the beautiful weather. Now back to reality… Happy Monday!
I’ve been lusting over metallic brogues recently. The dressed up flat is a great option for those who prefer to leave the heels at home. There are about a million ways to wear these metallic gold oxfords, but here are three of my favorites! The first look would make for a cute and casual date night outfit. Silk floral shorts are the modern version of a skirt. Pair them with a blouse and a leather jacket and you are ready for dinner and a movie! For the second look, the gold brogues are a fun accent piece to a basic jeans and sweater ensemble. Wear this on a shopping trip or for lunch with friends. The last look combines a modern shirtdress with the trendy flats. Add a cool, studded belt for shape, and you are ready to hit happy hour. What do you say? Are gold brogues for you?
The highlights of my weekend: beach chairs set up around the pool, delicious scallops from Browns, puppy swimming!, cocktails, puppy sunbathing, me sunbathing, Browns on repeat, bright floral shorts by Tommy Hilfiger.
I spent the weekend at home with my family, my dog Skylar, and my friends, enjoying the beautiful weather. Hope you all also had a nice and relaxing weekend!
These amazing zip-front sandals in taupe leather are my friday fashion find, because they look rich, sturdy, and comfortable. The bonus: Topshop is offering free shipping today on orders of $60 and over! So order some new shoes and have yourself a great weekend!
It’s raining again… big surprise. But in spite of the weather, I am wearing whatever I want. This is my go-to warm weather dress, and I’ve probably worn it three times already this season. Shocking, I know. (For those who don’t know, that is an unheard of statistic for me)… Anyway, my fingers are crossed for nice weather this weekend!
I managed to get outside to take photographs… or so I thought. I only took about three shots before it started to rain again. Anyway, I’ve been obsessed with these new loafers, courtesy of Steve Madden (similar), so here are a couple of ways that I have worn them recently. They are not drastically different looks: I varied the basic formula of jeans, stripes, and a comfy sweater. What better way to dress on rainy days?
