Pop of Pink


As much as I’m not a fan of pink (I can count on one hand using only 3 fingers the amount of pink pieces I own), I’m so in love with these pink suede heels. I think it’s the metal heel that drew me to them to begin with. That, and the hubby chose them out ;)

Last night we had a family supper, and to compliment the overall neutralness of my outfit, I paired together these heels. As I was sitting there debating between these pink heels and my red ankle strap heels (here & here) I obviously went with the pink. A pointy toed heel elongates your legs, and I was in the mood for some “elongating” ;)

Friday has come again! The weekend is here! Hope you all have a great Friday and weekend. Stay classy!

Grey & Red


Good morning/afternoon/evening, Realists!! Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are [somewhat] happy to be starting a new week!

This past Friday, after just finishing my 3-day juice cleanse, a friend had asked me to join her for lunch, which I immediately answered “Yes!” to! We decided on going to a Greek restaurant named Milos that serves an amazing lunch menu. I was so happy to be eating solids again, but maybe a little too happy. Word of advice?? Do not stuff food down your throat too quickly after not eating for 3 days…I was on the verge of throwing everything I ate up…luckily I didn’t!

Now, about the outfit. I find red and black a hit-and-miss color combo. Some people love it, some people hate it. I’m cool with the pair, depending on what the items are. For myself, I actually find that grey and black are a nicer contrast. This shade and color combo has to be one of my favorites of the sort. There are certain colors I am fond of together (i.e. purple & yellow), or shades (i.e. white & black), but when it comes to one of each, I adore the red and grey marriage. Reason is that grey isn’t as harsh as black, so I find that the colors have a more uniformed relationship.

Just a quick note about these heels. I just recently ordered them online off of the huge Zara sale going on (along with many other pieces! Like this top here), and am absolutely infatuated with them. I can literally pair these shoes with anything and everything in my closet, and they’re so comfy!! Realists, I’ll try not to, but be prepared to see them pretty often ;)

I’m off! Have a lovely Monday, and stay classy!

P.s. Is it just me, but I find I have this Janis Joplin look going on with the natural hair and round sunnies, don’t you find? Unintentional, I just noticed it after looking at the pictures!

Not Your Typical Denim Shorts


When it comes to heat, I LOVE a great pair of shorts. Gym shorts, suit shorts, denim shorts, I absolutely am infatuated (I know that’s a strong word, but it’s true!) with shorts! So when I came across this pair, with the stand-out of the splatted colors, I knew I had to own them! It also helps that I found them on special ;)

When I think of denim shorts, first instinct; blue. Then, I guess you would say white. After that, colored, but these are on a whole other level. I adore the fact that the colors are not super bright, but you do still have those hints of yellow and pink thrown in there.

Now, at first thought, I was heading for a white tank, and then stopped myself mid-track when I then caught, at the corner of my eye, my striped, neon yellow tank I first wore here. I mean, why not?? Adds more character to an outfit (and love mixing prints). And to not over-do it, I threw on my black blazer and some black ankle-strap heels.

It’s Thursday!! And you know what that means? Ladies night at so many restaurants!!! Oh, and the weekend’s a day away ;) Stay Classy, Realists!

Family Fun


Yesterday night, we all went to check out an annual family fun fundraiser going on close to our home. It was held in a school yard with many fun activities such as bouncy castles, pony rides, and a few local restaurants with food stands.

Once again, just like my La Ronde outfit, I didn’t want to end up wearing yoga pants & running shoes, so I chose to put together a loose tank, paired with these super comfy, high-waist trousers.

I love these pants because I’ve really worn them every way possible. With heels, boots, sandals, sneakers. You name it, I’ve already paired them together. They’re such a versatile pair of pants, and because they’re in a cargo material rather than a dressy material, as well as bear a looser fit, dancing around with kids makes it that much easier ;)

Have a lovely Thursday, and stay classy, Realists!

Wide-leg Jeans


Aaaaaaaaand it’s cold again…why, Mother Nature, why??

Ok, it’s not cooooold, but it’s nowhere near as warm as it was this past weekend! Which results in me having to pull out jeans again, along with some type of sweater. In this case, 3/4 sleeves work perfect.

I bought these jeans years ago in New York, but can’t let go of them. They’re not a pair I run to often, but I do love great, wide-leg jeans. Scratch that, I love wide-leg pants in general (here I’m wearing a great linen pair I love)!! I find they have such a chic quality to them, especially when in a softer, trouser fabric. And to brighten up this outfit just a wee bit, even if they are mostly hidden under my jeans, I paired this all with some bright yellow peep-toe wedges.

Dear Realists, hope you have a lovely hump-day. The weekend is just around the corner! Stay classy!

Linen for the office


My brother recently gave me an idea for a post. He is one of the many people that have to go into an office Monday to Friday, so he suggested I post about an outfit appropriate for an office environment. So here is my take on an ensemble suitable for work featuring the linen pant!

I love a great pair of linen pants. I’ve had these pants for quite a few years now, and it’s great because they never go out of style! How do you say no to a neutral, linen pant? Perfect for the beach, shopping, dinner, movies, or as seen here, the workplace! It all depends on what you pair them with.

What are your takes on a linen pant? What about linen in general? You know I love to hear your thoughts, so please, tell me! :) And continue to stay classy, the weekend is just around the corner ;)
