Outfit Post #76: The Cold Shoulder

Cold shoulder and off-the-shoulder tops and dresses are very trendy right now. I have to say, I find the off-the-shoulder style kind of uncomfortable because you have to keep pulling down the shoulders. That said, I’ve only really tried one top, so I should probably do more research before drawing any conclusions. I find the cold shoulder style more comfortable and really like this top.

Outfit Post #75: Fattitude

When you just got your hair done and you have a new dress and the weather is beautiful, you have to do a blog post.

Outfit Post #74: Shapely Hips

I’ve talked about this before, but I like to try out different shapes and silhouettes even though my go-to is the fit and flare. I really liked the shape of this dress when I saw it online. I thought it was interesting, pretty, and oddly flattering, despite adding extra volume to the hips.  The print made me happy too.

Boots – Franco Sarto via… can’t remember – sorry!

Outfit Post #73: Red is for Love

I meant to post this outfit for Valentine’s Day, but didn’t get my shit together. Fortunately, nothing bad has ever happened from someone being over a week late for Valentine’s Day. Am I right? 😉

Speaking of love, this picture looks fake, but it’s a real picture of the real life duck couple that have taken residence in my apartment building’s pool. They’re always together. In the pool. Is anything more adorable?

Outfit Post #72: Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

We rarely get snow in my neck of the woods, but we’ve had a lot more than usual this winter. Fortunately, novel weather makes for new and exciting wardrobe possibilities, like the new toque I bought at a Christmas market (SO comfortable). I’m also sporting my new leggings from which honestly aren’t super warm, but are definitely super cute. I’m into the whole printed leggings thing and these are great.

Btw: I have, on more than one occasion, been confronted by a stranger in the street asking me “Did you really get that in New York??”, referring to my hoodie. For the record to those haters, yes, I surely did get it in NYC – so mind ya business! 😉

Outfit Post #71: Black Sweater Dress

Well, an all black outfit seems appropriate for this week’s events. This dress is super comfortable, and I’ve added a little sass with the leopard print pumps. At least if the world ends, I’ll be going out in style 🙂

Outfit Post #70: These Pants Though

These pants are from Nadia Aboulhosn’s latest collection for Addition Elle. I’ve paired them with a top from her collection from last year. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to find enough occasions to wear them, but I loved them so much I couldn’t not buy them. I’ve actually worn them twice since I bought them a couple of weeks ago. The first time was to the grocery store 🙂
