Black Lace with my Boyfriend

IMG_4343

Happy Monday, Ladies!

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. Don’t be fooled by the leaves on the ground, it was 85 when these pics were taken. I want to clear up something with the title, it is my “boyfriend jean shorts” in which I was referring! I don’t think my husband would agree with anything else!! ha!

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Our was pretty laid back. Just hanging out doing things at home, and going to another favorite wine bar. We do love our wine! It was mid 80s, so we still went for our medium bodied, crisp Pinot Grigio, which was so smooth and refreshing. We met a few other people there, and since out of the two of us ( my husband and I), I am a bit more outgoing, so I have a NEED to pet any cute dog I see.

Using my Shih Tzu RADAR, I was able to detect a cute one in the vacinity! Beige with a black face, super soft fur like my Gibby, I was instantly taken in. I went over to speak to the owner, Joe, from NY, just to ask about the dog and pet him ( the puppy). Then it became a full blown-pull-your-chairs-over-here-conversation, and we found out that we both took a trip to Asheville and have the same breeder for our pups! Small world. Anyhow, we had a fun time, and enjoyed some scrumptious sushi too!

For my outfit, I decided to wear my boyfriend denim shorts. They are the epitome of comfort, and they ride low on the hips. I bought this top from Sheinside and just love the design and the sheerness. Having EDS, It took me 8 years to even get to the point where I can wear kitten heels, as I used to have to wear mainly cushioned orthotic shoes, not always the prettiest. So, it was nice when I found these .5-1 inch black ones to wear, and feel more stylish as well.

Enjoy Your Week!

Jess xo

Top: Sheinside, Loft Boyfriend jean shorts ( few years old, similar), Shoes: Poshmark, Earrings: Charming Charlies, Handbag: Kate Spade ( similar) Color: Pine from Colorstay Gel Nailpolish

    Scrolling through your looks, Jess, and I found myself gazing at this gorgeous top. I love that you paired it with the boyfriend shorts as well. Both pieces look great together and look fantastic on you. Shoes = cute & a little sexy. 🙂 Also, I adore those glasses on you! Every time you wear them it makes me smile.

    I love the combination of something so feminine and delicate like black lace with boyfriend jeans. And the weather here is also so hot, the leaves are falling because it is summer weather!

    And you have a VERY lovely emerald manicure, I need to give myself a manicure but just haven’t found the time. It is one of those details that makes an outfit look complete, so thank you for the inspiration!

    Jess, you have such great legs for boyfriend shorts! I’m always impressed with how well thought out your styling is. The earrings, bag and top really elevate the look!
    I can relate to having shoe problems. My feet are very wide and because of my Cerebral Palsy they tend to curl under. I’ve been having a really hard time lately finding evening shoes that don’t look like they’re made for somebody’s Granny LOL.
