Don’t Sugarcoat It


While I had been shopping my wish-listed items for the upcoming fall season to my hearts content, Mother Nature decided it was time for a heat wave. Heat waves only mean two things to me: sunburns and sweat. Those two things happen to not look good in outfit photos, so that explains my absence from my blog and social media last week. I was also feeling a little under the weather (that’s punny) due to a little sickness, nervousness about new tasks at work and stress about a big decision we had to make which I’ll share more about soon.

On Sunday it finally cooled down a little and my sunburned shoulders were back to their normal pale and freckled self, so we headed out to shoot pictures of a favorite outfit of mine. These coated jeans and I have been inseparable since I bought them a few weeks ago. I like their toughness and the edge they give to an otherwise plain outfit. I owned a pair of coated denim way back in High School, because Lindsay Lohan was all the rage and she wore leather pants all the time, and I regret throwing those out once the trend had passed. Over the years I’ve learned that I have a thing for tougher wardrobe staples, such as boyfriend jeans and blazers, but I wasn’t aware of that back then. Safe to say that I’ve wised up and am planning on wearing my new jeans a ton!

I’ve also finally found a Bardot top that I really liked and that works well with key pieces in my wardrobe. It’s from River Island and it’s also available in about ten other colors. I went with white because I wanted to have something to give my early fall looks a summer-y touch. It’s flow-y, double layered and has gorgeous wide sleeves, how much better could it get? I’ve spotted many other must-haves at River Island, so keep your eyes on the blog to see my favorite picks from their fall collection soon!

    That is a lovely off the shoulder top! 🙂 I have always liked coated denim but never found a pair that looked and fit well and didn’t attract fluff, haha! So many times I’ve tried pairs on in the change room and they’ve attracted fluff before I’ve even stepped out to look at the mirror, ha!
