It’s a Wrap

The thing about living in D.C. is that there is virtually *no* spring weather. It somehow goes from cold to hot and humid in no time flat. Before you know it, you’ve missed spring altogether and the spring jackets, cover-ups, and light scarves haven’t seen any daylight. I’m determined not to miss it this year even though, so far, the temperature has been very “spring-like” but still feels very cool due to the wind.

Does this styling look familiar?

I love this ad. I think it’s probably what convinced me to buy these jeans years ago. So simple and yet so put together. The sweater I used was my waist-tie slouchy sweater, but I just left it open and tied it in the back instead.

I’ve had my eye on this Tolani scarf since before Christmas. It’s 100% silk and the color is just *beautiful*. This has instantly become one of my favorites out of my entire scarf collection.

As for the jeans, I bought these babies about four or five years ago when I first started to get into high-end denim. I love the wide-leg, but if you are familiar with Frankie B. jeans, they are made extremely, extremely small, but also are extremely, extremely *LOW*, even for me.  It was more of the style back then, but it’s just down right inappropriate when I bend over. So you probably won’t see my wearing these around with a short top, but otherwise, I still love these jeans. 
A hint to wearing wide leg bottoms and flares: You want to try to keep the length as long as possible without any dragging as it helps lengthen the leg line. Too short, and you’ve chopped off your legs! Holds true for both the petite and tall. But of course, please remember, avoid wearing pants that may touch the ground if it has snowed recently and there is salt on the concrete. Any contact with salt is a sure way to ruin and fray your beloved pants. This has happened to me on too many occasions!
