Weekend Recap: Me and My Calvin's

"Winter-Spring" is always a tricky time to get dressed. Though I am itching to pull out all the spring trends, shed the layers and romp around in lightweight dresses - it is still too rainy-cold-cloudy outside. So to cheer away the clouds, I mixed in spring brights to my winter basics.

The latest addition to my spring wardrobe is a pair of high-waisted vintage Calvin Klein stretch pants that have a great black and white checkered pattern. They were discovered on my New York thrifting adventure, and just couldn't spend another day in the closet. To keep them weather-friendly I paired them with a black velvet blazer, but kept it light with a pop of red at the waist.

"You want to know what comes between me and my Calvin's... NOTHING!"

I love the red belt in the 1st photo and the brown boots in the 2nd photo.

The last one is my favourite, really : it fits you very well (like the others, that's right), and it's kind of hippie spirit ... I love it.

All great. But the second one is by far my favorite. :)

Is that your real hair? It's gorgeous, I'm in the process of growing mine but I always get impatient and cut it all off

Yep. All my own hair. I know how the growing out process is.. so frustrating. I am still trying to grow mine longer.
