Lookbook: Flares

You know how online shopping is and when you are buying one thing, you kinda want to find something else to add to your cart so that you can at least get a few things in that order?  I am so guilty of that.  When I ordered the Hello Sunday blazer, I just had to find something else to add to my order and thought this little tunic (which was also on sale) was perfect for the summer.

What I'm Wearing
Top: Anthropologie
Jeans: Citizens of Humanity
Shoes: Dior
I very rarely wear flare jeans, I own so many pairs of skinny jeans that when I put these on it was a bit of "Woh.  These look weird."  I do like white jeans though, especially during the summer so went with them.  It was actually quite a dreary day but sometimes you just gotta brighten up the day with your outfit!

In recent news, I got back from New York and found out that I was selected to be one of the 31 bloggers in The Society Stylist's "Little Black Dress Experiment" which is quite exciting!  I'm looking forward to getting the LBD and see how everyone styles it differently.

I also came home to many packages waiting for me.  One of which were the OTK boots from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale that I mentioned in this post.  A lot of you wanted to know how they fit so I'm here to report that if you are a shorty like me with short legs, these boots are not made for us!  I don't have a lot of luck with OTK boots but thought maybe, just maybe I could make these work.  They are super over the knee on me, more like upper thigh high boots!  And you can't even scrunch them down to make them look somewhat normal.  So, it is a no for me, they are going back.  :(  I'll keep a lookout for any other OTK boots that may fit us short legged girls and let you know what I find!

  1. What a great outfit! Looks so fun and summery! I know what you mean about online shopping---it's like you need to get the most of the shipping costs! :-)


  2. I just read rave reviews about these OTK boots for us vertically challenged girls.

  3. Ohhh no, bummer about the boots. I was wondering how they'd fit- I saw them in person and thought they were beautiful, but couldn't try them on since they didn't have my size (or anywhere near it), so boo. :(

    You look great today, though! Love the white pants, mmhm.

  4. Great outfit! I just got some Joe's Jeans Muse in white, they have a slight flare to them too. I started a new blog, zealousblonde.blogspot dot com, with some humor and outfit posts. If you have a moment, please stop by!

  5. Love all the top picks! Can't wait to see your LBD experiment!

    I am sorry to hear the boots didn't work out - they are SO cute.

  8. the LBD experiment sounds so fun!! congrats on being selected and cannot wait to see how you style it up. =)

  18. I love this on you so much!!! I haven't seen flare jeans on you and they're very cute on you! I had really good luck on a pair of flat boots by Stuart Weitzman (50/50). I wore them all winter long last year!
