Black Five


Via this post… would know that I’m not kidding when I told you a few posts back that I’m really ready to bust out of my style comfort zones. ;-)   And there is probably no better season to try out new looks and trends than Summer.

Just when I thought I had enough of the floral and stripes combo which I experimented with in my previous post……then a new collaboration with BLACK FIVE comes along where this not-so-young blogger was made to choose from a vast array of the most cutting edge (read: youth-oriented :-) ) and trendy outfits.

It was totally love at first sight when I spotted these cropped blazer and shorts (both are lined) on-site which quickly turned to everlasting love when I finally met them in person because of the great fit (I ordered in a size up) and silky feel of the fabrics (not to mention that the shorts has pockets!) ;-)

So why don’t you guys check out BLACK FIVE soon (sign up now and get 20% off your first buy plus shipping is free worldwide) and get lost in their huge collection of “fast-fashion” clothes, bags, shoes and accessories….I’m sure you will love it too!  ♥

    NICE…. You can see the quality of these pieces from a mile away. Although far too short for me, I will say you look good in them. God, you must appall all these women in your neighbourhood haha. Green with envy they look at you and think “how does she do that?” I hope they don’t get nasty to you. Jealousy is such a bitch.

    This is simply fabulous ! I love that you don’t select your clothing based on the rules of what women should wear at certain ages. I have been contemplating buying a shorter skirt for summer, and worry that I am too old to wear it! I truly think that we should wear what looks best on us and forget the rules! You look amazing!!

    Those shorts are darling! They defintiely look deep enough to hold a cell phone or something! A lip gloss? Or a dollar bill?! The possiblities are endless! Love the stripes, and how flattering the length is. They definitely look fantastic on you. Are you still running these days? I can tell, work those shorts, your legs deserve some attention! (And your heels? DANG! Those are some high shoes!)

    I am in love with your shorts and blazer. Both beautiful pieces in 2 of my most favorite prints. The turquoise little sandals are super adorable, too. Rocking the mirrored sunnies too, Rebecca!! =)

    I love a good mixed pattern look. Floral and stripes combo can never go wrong. Meanwhile, loving the colored mirror shades.

    I found your blog via Whitney’s Monday Link-up post. :)

    You look Great as always and maybe you should say “not-so-old” ’cause you are giving those young gals a run for the money. . .LOL!.

    Hi Gorgeous!
    I love floral!! I especially love the print and the colors in this jacket. Your shoes are always fab, and I liked that you paired it with the cute stripped shorts!
