Going out

I've been waiting to wear this other stories dress for months-it caugh my eye during the winter sale with its crazy red and purple zebra pattern-but then it was too damn cold to wear it. Dressed it down with sneakers. I'm slowly embracing the fact that i'm 40 going on 15...

Hello spring

Switching to a jacket today and to lighter denim-a true breakthrough.
I also put my faux-furs and winter coats away. Wish me luck!

The unfairness of it all

It only took me a couple of years of changing room horrors to find a pair of mom jeans that fit. Not sure what kind of mom you had in mind, my dear zara, mango and gap, but finally someone got it right (at least for me). These are the monki kimomo mom jeans and they're a little bit more retro than mom, which i like.

Red like my boots

I'm happy red shoes are having a moment. My newish mango red boots give me a much needed pick me up as i descend into my own personal idea of hell aka writing my third exam paper for university. Can you spot the cat in the background?

Right now i'm kind of stuck between seasons: spring on top, winter on the bottom...

If you're going to be cute, why fight it?

I thought of this line from an old post of vice's do's and don'ts column after i got dressed today. Even at 40, when you're 5'3 and have tiny feet you might as well just get the job done and go for cute. Someone's gotta do it.

Style grabbing

One of the things i missed the most about living in the city was going out and making a mental note of an outfit to copy. yesterday i saw a girl wearing these vagabond grace boots i also have with a simple all black outfit. So today i knew what i wanted to wear, although i'm wearing navy and my boots are taupe instead of black. It reminded me i used to do this all the time when i was a girl. I guess one doesn't change that much after all...

life is short, wear whatever

One thing i found about turning 40 is not giving a damn. Pastels with neons, check. Stars, check. The list goes on.

going out

i'm so excited today because a. i finished all my university work for the first week back and b. our babysitter is back in town!

that means it's date night-after we haven't been alone for almost a month and a half (those christmas vacations are a double edged sword i tell ya).

i was so happy i was getting ready at about 10:00 am and i even took the rare selfie. 

looking forward to my favorite kind of date: book shopping, drinks & dinner. and it's a balmy +2 degrees which means i can wear a skirt/dress (with over the knees and fleece lined tights obvs).

only a couple hours to go now...
