Transitional Outfit & Encouragement

simplefashion6

Ah, Spring is coming and I couldn’t be more excited! I am especially thrilled for all of the pastels hitting the stores soon! However, I wanted to give this time of the year the respect it deserves with some transitional dressing. My husband and I had a brunch date in our neighborhood the other day and didn’t have much planned for the day, except to enjoy a little bit of the down time that seems to be so rare these days.

Color in NYC Fashion ;)

CityMonochrome

Yes, I do love me some color. But, honestly, there is just something so easy and classic about black and grey; it just works so well together (and did I mention it was just so easy?)! I guess that must be why it’s a popular NYC combo- everyone is in a NY minute here, so the easiest thing to do sometimes is just grab that absence of color and run out the house- and that’s OK!

Layers & Brunch

After a crazy blizzard in NYC last week that yielded in about 25″ of snow (*does some elementary school math*), which amounts to just about 2 feet (yay, me!), the ice still hasn’t completely melted here, but the weather did warm up a bit.

I’ll admit, sweater shopping is a little difficult for me sometimes; there are certain, er, assets that just don’t make the process easy at all. For example, due to curvy hips, it’s difficult to find a pull-over sweater that won’t stretch to infinity at the hips and then bulk me up at the waist (extra space for boxes of munchkins on each side, I feel!). So, you can only image my happiness when I found this super cozy “curved” sweater! Read more

crop top & pleats

I can still remember being at Macy’s and holding the crop top in my hand thinking “Nope, still not feeling it,” but something inside said ‘give it a chance’ and so off to the register I went and brought it home. I tried it on and thought ‘boy, I really need to hit the gym,” but reminded myself that things in life are worth trying for and I have to live for the now instead of the future. So I ripped the price tag off and paired the top away. Read more
