We need to talk. I mean seriously. I am turning 30 in a few (like less than two) short months. I am not stressed out about this. My life has been amazing and I assume it will go on being amazing regardless of what number my age starts with. The only thing I worry about is my wardrobe. Does it have to change after the big birthday? Can I still wear jean shorts in the summer? Can I still pull off a mini skirt? Can I still get by with a bikini? Most importantly do I have to forgo the 2014 crop top trend?

I haven’t figured out the answers to any of these yet. So I decided to go ahead and jump on the crop top train before the birthday, you know, just in case. This crop is actually a yoga shirt. I love a multi purpose item. I have worn super casually for yoga but I also love it just as much with a silk maxi. Now that is one heck of a two-for (read toofur).

It’s true you can’t actually see any skin in this crop, but it is still winter, and 30 is still breathing down my neck. But the only thing I like about rules is breaking them. So don’t be too surprised when I show up on here and in your real life in a true crop top with skin and all well after said birthday. Cause why the heck not.

Have a beautiful day. Break some rules!

It’s about this time of year-the weather shifts just slightly. All of a sudden 43 degrees feels like 75 and we are all reaching into the back of our closet for the things we shoved there last September. And before we even have a chance to slip into our favorite cropped boyfriend jeans and toms or in my case maxi dresses, the weather has gone back to its typically moody January self of cold and cloudy and endless.
I got this black lace maxi dress right at the end of maxi dress season and it never even got to have its day in the sun. So I have been trying to work it into my winter wardrobe. Though it is meant to be worn with a fabulous pair of sandals, a messy bun, huge sunnies and tons of bangles for right now it will have to exist with a pair of riding boots and a leather jacket. And really I think it works pretty well. You know-for those days that we feel like spring will never come.
How do you wear you summer clothes in the winter? Cause this whole jeans and sweaters and leggings and long pants and cold noses is for the birds. Spring-are you out there?
