Never Say Never

Happy Monday all!

Never in a billion years would I think I could wear sequin pants.  Never.  I had completely ruled them out because I didn’t think they would look good on my full hips.  Also the majority of PS sequin “pants” I’ve seen have been mostly leggings. I am not a fan of leggings  so that was a definite no-no for me.  But like all things fashion, the PS sequin pant has evolved from leggings.  When I came across these wide leg sequin pants from Boohoo Plus I was like “WOW! This is so me!”.  I knew I could comfortably wear them because I like how wide leg pants look on me.  It felt good finding a  pair of sequin pants that fit my style and comfort level.  While I’m a huge advocate of stepping outside your comfort zone, sometimes it’s good to stay within it and feel good about what you’re wearing.

Have a wonderful day!

No Sequins Necessary

TGIF all!

Now that the holiday season is upon us, I’m sure you’ve been bombarded with all things shiny & bright. While shiny and bright is fine not everyone is comfortable wearing a sequin skirt or metallic pants.  You can get glammed up  for your holiday festivities without sacrificing your personal style. There so many PS party wear options out now that fit all taste and comfort levels.   If shiny skirts aren’t your thing, that is completely fine! You have the right to feel wonderful and comfortable in your clothes. Remember you make the clothes, not the other way around! So today (with the help of some of my gorgeous blogger boos)  I’m highlighting  holiday looks that show you dont need shiny and bright to be glam!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Cyber Monday Picks

Happy Monday all!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!  I spent the holiday stuffing my face (as usual) and spending time with my  family in NYC.  I did very little shopping this Black Friday because I only wanted a pair of earrings but these Cyber Monday deals have me rethinking things!  While Black Friday will always be the the number one shopping event,  Cyber Monday is definitely giving it a run for its money.  In some cases you can find better deals on Cyber Monday than on Black Friday.  Another plus to Cyber Monday is that almost all the participating retailers offer free shipping during the event. Yay!!!

I wish I could include all of my favorite Cyber Monday picks but this post would be super long!  So here are a few of my favorites along with  some Cyber Monday deals you can’t miss.  And don’t forget to sign up for Ebates to get cash back on your Cyber Monday purchases!

Fall Staycation: Denim Crush

Happy Hump Day all!

On the last day of my weekend staycation , Jami and I headed into the Fairmount section of Philadelphia for brunch and to visit the Philadelphia Art Museum.  On the weekend you can usually  find me in jeans and sneakers but for my staycation I wanted to elevate my weekend uniform. To achieve this I decided to wear a denim on denim outfit.   I wore a cute denim shirt with a pair of wide leg jeans and my blue velvet booties (you can’t really see them but they are AWESOME!).   Denim on denim will always be a classic because it’s a cool, casual look that looks good on everyone regardless of size.

Jami and had such a good time exploring Philadelphia during my staycation. I’m planning on doing another one next Spring when Philly really comes alive.  If you haven’t done a staycation  yet I totally recommend you do so!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everybody!

Fall Staycation: Smart Layers

Happy Monday all!

During my staycation last weekend Jami and I went on the Mural Mile Walking Tour on Saturday morning.  While I was excited to go on the tour the forecast called for below average temps that morning. Eloquii  gifted me this wonderful military style double-breasted coat to wear during my staycation.  At first I didn’t think I would need the coat because the last few Novembers have been unseasonably warm. Something in my gut told me to get it and I’m glad I did.  I wore a sweater and my trusty denim jacket underneath the coat to ward off the chill.  I added a scarf because I hate cold air on my neck. The coat and my layers kept me warm and comfy throughout the two hour walking tour.  Not once did I  feel constricted or bulky with the extra layers under the coat.   Since late Fall weather see saws  (cold in the AM, warm in the PM) I wear layers that I can peel off as the day goes on.  My the time we finished the tour,  brunch and did more sightseeing it had warmed up enough for me to take off my denim jacket and scarf. Needless to say this coat is my new favorite and I wear it practically everywhere. If you’re in the market for a coat, I highly recommend this one.

Have a wonderful day!
