Happy Friday, my loves! Since today is Passover and I attend a public university, I had no classes today. Believe me, I was not complaining. I woke up with a lot of motivation, went on a rather long walk around the neighborhood with my boyfriend…and ran around to complete some errands. Luckily, I still managed to make the time to create a blog post, featuring my outfit for the day, and to take Trix for a walk. I feel pretty accomplished!
Today’s look really mirrors more of my everyday, summer style. If you have ever read a previous post of mine, you know Flare Jeans are my current wardrobe staple. I wear them at least 3 times a week, if not more. This pair is by far my favorite pair in my closet. They are so flattering and comfortable. Comfort is key when it comes to jeans. The brand of my jeans is L’agence; they have the best denim anything, and although they are a bit pricey…believe me their clothing/denim is worth every penny.
My top is from my absolute, favorite boutique in NYC. Maybe I’m a little biased because I have worked as a model at this boutique for almost 3 years now, but in my opinion, they truly have the trendiest, most affordable clothing out there. Many times, when I wear a top from there and mix it with more higher priced pieces, I am always stopped and asked where I got my top from, and people are shocked to hear the price, considering that many of their pieces look as if they were higher priced. Every time I shoot new pieces, there are always at least 10 things I want to end up buying afterwards. The boutique is called Mystique Boutique NYC, and they have stores in both the city and throughout Long Island.
As for the rest of my outfit, since my hat, top, and accessories were neutral, I needed a pop of color somewhere, so I opted for a red crossbody bag. When running errands it’s always great to have your hands free; it’s just one less thing to worry about, so cross bodies are my go-to when I have a busy day ahead of me. Besides…one of my hands is already filled with a 3 pound chihuahua, so one hand free is better than nothing. Trix opted for a denim look, and she also needed some flare to her outfit, so the red collar was a necessity.
Tip: Pair flare jeans with an off-the-shoulder top!
To all those who celebrate it, have a Happy Passover! And to the rest of my viewers, let me know about your weekend plans and don’t forget to check me out on my Instagram blog @mercedesgonzalez !
