Basking In Spring Sunshine

Basking In Spring Sunshine

It's been consistently sunny over the past couple of weekends so it was about time for me to dust off the sunglasses and take it all in. I'm sure I've already talked your ear off about these sunglasses when I got them last summer, so I'll keep it brief: they still spark so much joy.

Here's what I wore on a recent "off-duty" outing (matzo ball soup not pictured):

No socks, no coat. Just a gorgeous gold choker necklace from Miranda Frye, a blazer layered over a flowy blouse and my favorite jeans. Also, no black clothing in sight. Who am I? I don't even recognize myself. 

Necklace - Miranda Frye
Sunglasses - Illesteva
Blazer - Rachel Roy (similar)
Jeans - Current/Elliott
Top - French Connection (similar)
Shoes - Gucci

In the end, I am glad I got these shoes in red and not in the trendy black furry version I initially wanted last fall. The red offers a nice punch of colour and makes them a statement piece in most of the outfits I include them in. I couldn't imagine wearing the furry slipper version in the warmer months - whereas these red slides can work with shorts and dresses in the summer too. The new printed versions have my heart skipping a beat. 

Curious about sizing? I sized up a whole size in these because I don't like any ankle overhang and I have wider feet. They generally run half a size small, but I would suggest sizing up a whole size if you have wider feet like I do. 

How have you been dressing on the weekends?
