Trapeze Artist


Top: French Connection via Rue La La; Tank: Ann Taylor Loft;
 Jeans: Ann Taylor Loft;
Shoes: Tori Burch; Necklace: Silpada

At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like the look of a trapeze top on me, but it turns out I do!! First of all, it's so comfortable. Second of all, it hides my flaws. And thirdly, it's so comfortable. Wait, I already said that. Well, you get the point. I paired the top with a contrasting light gray tank. I wasn't sure if the neckline would be too low, but it turns out the arm holes are a little big, so the tank worked out perfectly. And I love how the light gray compliments the almost lavendar stripe. This will be a great top come fall as well. I love a multi-functional piece!

Unlike the Kardashian gals, I wore jeans versus leggings. (Let's be honest, this top is not long enough to hide ANYTHING when wearing leggings!) And in case you're wondering, no I am not wearing the same jeans three days in a row, though I did think about it! I actually tried on some other jeans in my closet and I did indeed find another pair of my own jeans that fit! It's a miracle I'm willing to keep testing.

I decided to keep my shoe very simple. The length of the jean didn't really lend itself to an ankle strap style shoe. I could have gotten away with a wedge, but I didn't have one in black. (I know what you're thinking. Andrea didn't have a black wedge?) Instead, I opted for a basic flip flop. Plus, we were going shoe shopping that afternoon and you never want to have a fussy shoe to mess with on such an occassion!

At the last minute I added the long chain necklace. I felt like the whole look needed a little something extra and a delicate necklace just wouldn't do the trick. I long, fun pendant would have had the same effect so I guess I need to go shopping! And I know just the place. Forever 21 has great jewelry that's super affordable.

What fashion trend have you purchased that you weren't sure would work for you but did? I love when I find something that proves me wrong!

I LOVE THIS LOOK. I especially love that first photo. You look gorgeous and your hair is perfect. If you haven't figured it out yet, I tend to prefer the casual and comfy looks. :) This is something I could definitely see myself wearing.
