Most of the weddings I have attended in recent years happened to be ones where I was a bridesmaid. This meant that my get-up was chosen for me, or in collaboration with the bride, and I did not have to worry about that decision in the least! When my cousin Caitlin’s wedding rolled around last week, however, I was excited to try something new. I found these amazing pants at Zara while Catherine and I were in New York and knew instantly that I had to do something really cool with them.
For my birthday this year (the day after Christmas), John got me a bike! Its a turquoise cruiser and it is absolutely perfect for me. One of my favorite things growing up was riding bikes at the beach during our family vacations and around the neighborhood where I grew up. This past summer when we were at the beach John and I had such fun biking to and from the beach and all around Seaside and Watercolor and I can’t remember if I actually told him it would be fun to do it at home or if he could just tell. Either way, Johnny for the win.
We are always going on and on about how we have a tendency to gravitate toward all black outfits, and that is certainly true. However, for me, I think I just have a habit of dressing mono-chromatically and that’s why I like the all black. Here, I still kept with the monochrome look, but instead used different shades of the color for the same effect. I love this Babe Town Free People Top (how sweet is the name?) and have been dying to wear it since I got it for my birthday, but alas, it is the middle of winter. Solution? Blazer. Always, blazer. Always, Theory Blazer.
