This past weekend was chill central - I hibernated Saturday night while all my friends partied, and came out of the cave on Sunday to hang with one of my best partners in crime, Izzy. We stopped in one of the parks by Yankee Stadium to snap some flicks. It's so beautiful around there, especially with the transition in seasons (okay seriously? from Hurricane Sandy to snow to torrential downpour to 60 degrees all in a week? tell me you don't believe in our warming planet!)
During the summer, I'm not one for shorts - the one time I did wear them this year was hanging with Jasifer Lions Club. I was crazy excited when I realized I could get away with throwing them on with a pair of tights. No thigh rubbing, yay! (c'mon, don't act like your thighs don't rub girl lol). I got this pair from No nonsense in black and I LIVE for them.
Styling tip: Tights are a very easy way to transition spring and summer pieces. Shorts and miniskirts get a face-lift with hosiery in a bevy of colors and textures. Easy outfit transformation with a simple fix.
Can we quickly, for one second, talk about how much I adore 17 Sundays? This Australian powerhouse is taking the plus-size industry by storm, see The Iconic and Mamamia. Their high-quality, comfortable, city chic pieces have been incorporated into my wardrobe heavily since I've gotten it in my hands. My favorite are the razor shirts that I almost always pair with a statement necklace, but this knit cardigan slipped its way into my heart.
I have a knack for turning things backwards and upside down and really not even caring. I love this cardigan but wanted to funk it up with a gold chain connector. Done!
