Temperature's rising, and with that I go for easy pieces that can take me from day to night. When it's 80+ degrees in NYC and the humidity is high, being cool is necessity. I have really been looking for pieces that look good and keep me cool, because what's the point of wearing a great outfit that makes you miserable because you are hot.
I have been gravitating towards a lot of matching sets- whether its suits, matching tops & skirt, or like in this case, a kimono-short set. Now I have been waiting for the perfect time to wear this set from Eloquii. Ok, full disclosure I have been waiting for the weather to cooperate so I can wear this set. The past month has been nothing but rain or chilly days which called for a hoodie.
For the kimono style robe, I went with my normal size of a 18/20. I wasn't worried about the arms being too tight since kimono's usually have a little more room in the sleeves. Since it was hot, I decided not to wear a top underneath and just rocked a cute bra. The kimono provides enough coverage so you don't feel exposed. The shorts, I decided to go with a 18. Even though I wear a 16 in bottoms, I tend to size up in shorts because I don't want them too tight, especially when no stretch is involved. These are the perfect length if you are average height. For my tall gals these will definitely show off more thigh (cause the more the merrier).
My shoes, yes, let's get into the shoes, cause these are some bangers. I was on the hunt for a cute pink shoe, and these Steve Madden's popped up in my search. Clear details are back again, but what I love is that this heel is a lucite pink. I know at times with lucite people automatically think stripper shoes, but with it being pink it completely takes it from naughty to nice. Now this shoe is on sale, so hurry up and get it before it's gone.
For those that know me, they know I carry my whole entire life in a tote bag. These days, I am trying to streamline, and just carry what I need. That's when you need a great shoulder bag. I have been eyeing this Fossil bag for a while now, so when I finally saw it for a good price, I hurried up and purchased it. It's a great shoulder bag with tons of room for all my stuff. If you are not a fan of pink it does come in black and brown.
I have been loving me some statement earrings, so when my booski SkaKera saw these at Charming Charlie she got me a pair. Unfortunately the Charming Charlie store in NYC closed and their website is under construction, so getting your hands on a pair is quite tough these days. Definitely head to their website to see which stores are in your area, because these were only $8 and its a great earring to have in your collection.
