Guys, I’m loving crop flare pants! Is it just me? Sometimes I think my mind’s playing tricks on me because they’re kind of reminiscent of floods, but then I picture them 100 different ways for spring and summer and I’m sold. They’re definitely a departure from the skinny jeans that have been dominating my closet lately. I love how they show a little ankle and a little shoe. Right now I’m wearing them with sweaters. (By the way, I wish I bought a couple of these sweaters in different colors before they sold out!) But, once it gets a little warmer, I can’t wait to wear these with a t-shirt and Chuck Taylors or with a nice top for work. What are you crushing on for spring/summer?

2015 Goodwill Good Style Show Recap

The Goodwill Good Style Fashion Show was a blast from beginning to end. If you haven’t been following, every year Goodwill gives me and fellow bloggers money to purchase and style outfits from Goodwill that are worn for a runway show.

My theme this year was “Cleveland in Bloom”. With all of the new and exciting things happening in Cleveland lately, I felt like it was the right moment to celebrate the city’s renaissance with the vibrant colors and patterns of spring.The picture above is of two of my fabulous models Kali and Soul. Follow the jump to see more looks from the show!

I was so lucky to have my friends from college modeling in the show. It made hair and makeup and cocktail hour that much more fun. I was also happy to have my parents and both sisters in tow. They did so much to help including my mom hemming the striped top below as well as being in the audience to support me.

Models walked down the runway to Jungle Drum by Emiliana Torrini followed by Soft Shock by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Hair and makeup was kept natural to complement the already beautiful models. The flower pins were all hand made.

I wore a simple black dress with a handmade floral pin.

At the end of the night, we had to take a look at the view outside of Windows on the River. And just because it is just too funny not to share, here is a picture of me strutting my stuff down the runway. Hot stuff, right?
