Denim Days

18 Mar

Denim is always trendy but even more so this year. I tried the denim on denim look with a dress and boots. 

I like that the dress is not fitted. The tie detail in the front gives it some visual interest so that it doesn’t look like a potato sack. I also like the that it has pockets. 

Dress: American Eagle

Boots: Uggs via Nordstrom

Jewelry: Macy’s 




You Can’t Touch This (and you probably shouldn’t!)

27 Apr

When I was pregnant, about 7-8 months along, I tried on a pair of harem shorts.  They looked ridiculous!!! In fact, my friend and I could not stop laughing!  Her stepdaughter burst into my dressing room to see why we were so amused.  She immediately piped up “What’s wrong? Is your baby tickling you?!” 

With that being said, I don’t think I can do the harem pants trend.  They remind of two things:

1. Cow udders

2.  M.C. Hammer

While they are comfortable it is just too much slouchiness going on in the groin region, lol.  It looks messy and less than feminine.  They really don’t flatter too many body types either.

Now I could possibly work with these.  I definitely wouldn’t spend over $20 for a pair.  What are your thoughts on this summer trend?
