Playing with new trends is a love/hate relationship for me! Sometimes I really LOVE it and there are other times that I really hate it. Well, I particularly hate all trends involving pants, because I have the longest legs known to mankind and the shortest torso ever. So naturally, pant shopping is problematic and when you throw a couple extra variables into the mix, it makes the process even more cumbersome. Ugh. Earlier this year I made a “Fashion Goals List” and one of the goals included pants exploration. And as PAINFUL as it has been, I am proud to say that I’m pushing thru. So far, I have successfully purchased and worn various prints and pant shapes this year! My most recent pant adventure concluded with a pair of high waisted, bell-bottom jeans from American Eagle aka the Hi-Rise Artist Jeans. And since bell-bottom anything screams 70s, I felt that “Flower Child” was an appropriate title for this week’s #GTLT.
Black and white. It’s simple, classic, chic and timeless. Back when I was kiddo, I used to watch my mom get ready and she ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS wore some form of black and white. I remember thinking to myself, “Why does she always wear black?” Well, little did I know at the time, but she was abiding by the fashion law of the land. It is without a doubt, that you can never go wrong with a little black and white. As my love for fashion intensified, I realized that my mom had been a key influence in teaching me that long time fashion rule. So, mom this post is for you! Thank you for teaching me how to KILL IT in black and white 🙂
