i shouldn’t be wearing these pants…but i am

Yay, summer weather is finally here!  Which totally sucks if you’ve been a fatass like me and gained 5, or um 8, pounds over the past few months.  Thanks torn ACL!
Regardless, I decided to flaunt my derriere in my white pants and hopefully distract everyone with a super bright new tank and bubble necklace.  See, it’s like you almost didn’t notice my monster thighs lurking just below this really fun shirt.  Or you didn’t, until I pointed them out to you.  Crap!  I’ll just shut up now.

Am I the only one who has a love hate relationship with white pants?

Today I’m linking up with Dawn for Twitter hop!

business casual: lace skirt and chambray

I’m leaving for my legal conference this morning (right after my eyebrow waxing, priorities yo) so I snapped some quick pics on my deck before you’ll be forced to see OOTD’s from horrible hotel lighting.  I also wanted to catch the last few rays of sunshine that I’ll be seeing for the next three days.  Not only is the conference in a hotel, but it’s in a windowless and smoke filled casino. Woe is me (sarcasm font).

Am I the only one who hates the smell of casinos?

maxi skirt and chambray shirt

Today is one of those beautiful spring days where the birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and I woke up with a renewed sense of vigor and productivity (the strong coffee I made didn’t hurt).  After days of rain, we’re getting up to 80 degrees in New Jersey so I’m wearing the maxi skirt I purchased back in February.  
This is my first maxi skirt.  I have plenty of maxi dresses but find skirts are usually unflattering on my shapely derriere.  The tribal print on this skirt, however, makes it a bit more forgiving.  The chambray that I styled over a plain v-neck tee also hides my hips just the right amount.  See, you almost can’t tell I won the “Most Likely to Be Mistaken for J-Lo from the Back” superlative in high school.

How’s the weather where you are?  Are you finally dressing for Spring yet?

red skinnies

I’m linking up with Fran from Franish today for 5 Days 5 Ways.  I missed yesterday so it’s really 4 Days 5 Ways for me.  
I chose my red skinny jeans because I don’t wear them as often as I should.  I feel like they’re fairly memorable and I’m tempted to only wear them once in a while so that people don’t think I live in them. I did wear them a fair bit over the holiday season though because they’re very fitting with an ugly Christmas sweater and reindeer ears.
Today I paired my red skinny jeans with a striped tunic and motorcycle jacket.  I added these leopard flats (my ultimate neutral shoe) and yellow bubble necklace for an extra splash of color.

Other ways I’ve styled my red skinnies include with a purple tunic (similar), wintery sweater, chambray shirt and printed cardigan (similar) over a white oxford.  
How do you style your red skinnies?
