PINSTRIPES AND FLARES

HOW TO LAYER YOUR SPRING CLOTHING FOR INCONSISTENT WEATHER


pinstripes

pinstriped tunic

 

As of lately, I’ve had an obsession with pinstripes especially in this blue color.  With spring well on its way, and an attempt to lighten up my wardrobe, I felt it was time to start by incorporating some of the pinstriped pieces I had.  Little did I know that the weather would disagree with me that day.

Early spring fashion can be kind of tricky when it comes to the weather.   In Florida, we can have 80-degree weather one day and 50-degree weather the next.  When I originally purchased this pinstriped tunic, I was planning on wearing it as a dress with booties for a cute and comfy spring look and then roll it into my summer wardrobe with some lace-up leather sandals.  Then the weather changed and I was forced to think outside the box.

I decided to pair my tunic with these flared jeans and my vintage Jeffery Cambell clogs (similar here) for a more boho look, but you could easily pair it with skinny jeans and booties too.

The wristlet pictured here is such a great staple piece (I also have it in gray).  I usually keep it in a bigger bag with my essentials (lip gloss, money, keys) so it’s ready to go when I’m on the way to dinner or drinks and don’t want to carry around a bulky bag.  The company that designed it is called Satchel and they are located in Savannah, GA.  They make custom handbags and each piece is unique due to the imperfections in the leather.  

The hat I’m wearing is by Brixton.  It comes in this amazing burgundy color that surprisingly goes with just about anything.  Did I mention I have a thing for hats?  I have a few of their hats and it has to be said how well they hold their shape which is rare in my case as I am a little rough on them.  I am a huge fan of their hats, can’t say it enough!

It was a little chilly out so I decided that I needed a scarf.  I like this skinny scarf because it’s the perfect amount of material when it’s not freezing out.   I got mine from Free People which is no longer available, however, I found a similar style for you here.  

The final touch to any outfit when you live in Florida is a pair of sunglasses.  I custom made these Ray-Ban sunnies on their website with my initials and a silver mirrored tint.

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
