Florida Outfit Recap

As you may have noticed I headed to Florida this weekend for a little family vacation. I was so excited to catch a break from the cold weekend we had in New York. Of course I came home to a snow storm on Monday which was a change of pace from the Florida humidity I was experiencing.

My first outfit included one of the top trends right now, that was covered in my previous post. Fishnets are having a moment, but this time I paired them with thigh-high boots from Essex Glam  and high-waisted jean shorts. I then paired the outfit with this gorgeous blouse from Metisu with fun bell sleeves. This was a good transitional look for me in the airport with an added cozy sweater from Knitted Belle Boutique. I loved how the cardigan was longer than my shorts too to give the look some added proportions. I topped it off with my new Furla purse and these gorgeous sunglasses from Zero UV. Last summer it was all about the yellow clear aviators, this summer it is going to be about the pink see-through aviator glasses. These shades are only around $10 too!

For my pool look, I put on my new suit from Tictail NYC. I was invited to go shop with Tictail at their store and selected this swimsuit to take home with me. Tictail NYC is such an amazing store. I was at the store this past week to promote that all sales would go to Planned Parenthood and He for She all week long. All of the brands at the store are also female-founded and it was such an amazing store to visit. I love this suit and was afraid to try out a high-waisted bikini for the longest time, but I should have figured it would have worked well with me. My long torso loves a high-waist. The print with the stripes had me and my friend Zoe drooling over this suit too.


My second day look was a little more dressed up. We were going to a family gathering and I was so excited to wear this dress from Metisu for the first time. Embroidery is especially in right now and I was dying to put this on. I added a little belt to it to accentuate my waist and the flare of the skirt. I then paired it with my poker tights from Time for Tights. These tights are amazing and you will get a lot of compliments. They don’t look quite like thigh-high socks because of the intricate design. It’s similar, but different and will catch everyone’s eyes. I paired the tights with my River Island booties and  a pair of my Zero UV sunglasses. I love big frames on sunglasses, otherwise I feel so uncomfortable when shades feel small on my face.

How to Wear High-Waisted Flare Jeans

So I finally made the purchase. I was in absolute need of a pair of high-waisted flare jeans. The reason being that these jeans will be on trend for the next two years at least. They were on my must-have list needless to say.

These pants are very flattering on all figures. Especially if you have a little more junk in the trunk. The flare helps balance out your hip width. Don’t forget to go high-waisted to accentuate your waist and camouflage your mid-section.

I paired the jeans with a boucle duster coat and a cropped white turtleneck. The coat and the sweater crop create a sophisticated look for running around town. As always a glam clutch and killer pair of boots are a necessity. It would be best to wear shoes with a heel to elongate your legs even more with the dramatically long flare.
