Bright Stripes

Right about this time of year, I switch out my wardrobe. The fall and winter items get stored away, and out come the spring and summer clothes. When I saw this dress, I realized I hadn’t worn it in a while. The last time was during spring of 2015. These bright stripes needed some love again. The thing is, the last time I wore this dress, I wore it with the cutest pair of metallic blue pumps. It’s hard not being able to wear high heels; I miss them so! But, my overuse of sneakers wasn’t going to stop me from these bright stripes. This time I pulled out my white Nike Air Force Ones, white frilly socks, and white sunnies. To add some pops of color I styled the dress with my new turqoise ring from Zoko jewellery and flower power turquoise earrings from India. The final touch was my second hand, cute as can be, little purse that was “Made in Mexico.” I love the way the flowers on the bag perfectly match the flowers on my ears. And basically the only thing that will fit in that little bag is my new tabasco lippy. (At Etude House, it’s such fun! You pick out your lip balm and then the perfect case to match. Yes, I’ll be getting more!) So, see! I can wear cute bright stripes with tennis shoes. I have to. It really is the only type of shoe I wear each and every day! So I will wear dresses with tennis shoes, but I will always still add frills, colors, and jewels!

Athleisure: Sparkly Sweater Pants

Athleisure, a style that seems to have become my own, but first… Awwww, this week for spring break I’m away in Bohol, Philippines! I made sure to have all my content for this week uploaded before even arriving to the Philippines because this area, and our resort in particular, are not best known for their Internet service. Rather, the blues of the water and sky with the white sandy beach make for picturesque posts to come…plus some much relished R&R.

For all this week, I’m offering three ways I incorporate an athleisure style. I pretty much only wear tennis shoes now which I’ll expound upon later on Wednesday. But, somehow, I haven’t let tennis shoes cramp my style, nor my flare for bling. Here, I may be in silver brogue runners, but paired with sparkly silver sweater pants I still feel just enough glam. Plus, adding a big ol’ statement necklace adds to my glamorous vibe! For comfort, these sweater pants are pyjama worthy hence I wore an oversized white shirt and sweater too. This outfit with its athleisure style has become my style–especially since I wear some sort of sneaker every single day (unless I’m at the beach where you’ll find me properly barefoot–like right now as I write!).

PS I apologize for no posts on Wednesday and Friday. The week escaped me, and before I knew it I just wasn’t able to hit the publish button on both of these nights. Much of it had to do with my knee and my physical ailments. But like I said; I’ll save that update for Wednesday….
