Striped shorts

I was at the mall with Frank in search for a pair of red pants…for him.   Yes, he’s not only amazing, but stylish too 🙂   As soon as we walked into J Crew, I spotted these beauties.  Frank’s pants took a back seat for a second.   As much as I swore I wouldn’t buy anything full price anymore, I just couldn’t resist taking these striped beauties home.   To “even” things out, I bought a few other items on sale…that counts, right?

I LOVE anything in stripes.  Tell me, is there any specific pattern that makes you break your shopping rules?

Cancun Attire

I totally forgot I didn’t post my outfits while in Cancun.  We were only there for a short time, so I only have a couple to share with you.   While I love the short-with-heels trend, sometimes I feel like I’m too old to wear them.  (May just be the uber conservative in me, I need to step outside my comfort zone)  I decided to try them out while on vacay.  Afterall, no one really knows me or my age there 🙂

Tell me, how do you feel about shorts with heels?

Pink and Yellow

This dress is an oldie but goodie.  I purchased it on a whim while having drinks at a W hotel.  I think the drinks helped the decision 🙂  I love it because I can dress it up or down.  I decided to keep it casual to go for ice cream with Frank.

Wear to the Office – Bright pants

Bright pants are a bit tricky for the office.  I wouldn’t recommend them for a very strict business environment.  If you’re office is a bit laid back, here are my tips for wearing bright pants.  

First, I would stay away from prints.   Stick to a solid color, blue, green or red (I own them all).  Pair them with a tailored blazer.  I picked a dark blue to add some contrast and to tone down the bright green.  I was considering wearing a white or tan blouse, however I found this top in the back of my closet and loved the monochromatic look it created.   Finish the look with a pair of neutral shoes.   I didn’t wear the necklace or bracelet to the office, a bit too much for me.  I added it later in the day for dinner with friends.

Tell me, would you wear bright pants to the office?
