ALL WORK & NO PLAY


 


Lately I’ve been spending almost every spare minute of the day and night where I’m not working, either on the couch or in bed with the blinds drawn in partial darkness. Although it sounds like it, I haven’t developed a chronic illness.

I’m just super busy working late and weekends which means that for the 10% of my week where I’m not working, my brain is also not working and I’m allowed to be a lazy, couch sitting, pizza wearing, pyjama eating slob. Wait did I say that right?

That means that unfortunately my time spent in and around the blogosphere has become a bit more erratic than it used to. Quality over quantity right? Or at least above average.

That’s what I’m telling myself anyway. Either that or you’d be getting outfit of the day posts of all the track pants I own…

And they’re not the fashion type.


FLAIR FOR FLARES


FLARES

Calvin Klein Jumper / Raquel Allegra Tank / Frame Highwaist Flares / Alexander McQueen Cage Heels / Yves Saint Laurent Mini Crossbody / Kenzo Cut Out Earrings / Tom Ford Lipstick


Whether it’s couture, high end or high street, wherever you look, the 70’s trend is well and truly alive and here to stay. Yeap, they’re Ah ha ha ha stayin’ alive.

See what I did there.

You might be scared to take your first bellbottomed step into the flared universe and rightly so. This is one area that can go horribly, horribly wrong. Finding the right proportion is difficult, especially if you’re vertically challenged like me. A more high waisted fit will help elongate you while heels will be a necessity, which makes them not the most practical of jeans, but still a silhouette that can earn it’s place in your denim rotation.

They may not be everyone’s disco ticket, but they’re a good alternative shape, maybe a bench player that only really gets play time when the favourites need a break.

Your skinny jeans have been good to you, they’ve been there for every wardrobe emergency, indecisive outfit moment and the after thought of your outfit on more than one occasion. They’re tired, so give them a break and put a little flare into your life!
