First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Belgium. This morning's news of the Brussels attack makes it hard to stay positive in an already-changing world we are all living in. My heart is in pain for the victims and their families, because not only were lives lost and forever altered but this tension; this fear that now lurks in the air, that had been building up since the Paris attacks, is certainly palpable. I know, however, that the people of Belgium will be resilient and remain standing tall with their heads held up high. We are with you. Much, much, much - so much love to you all.
Today's look is all about the wide leg spring trend. I love its masculine vibe but I also always feel like a Hepburn when wearing my favorite wide leg pants from H&M. Can I just mention the fact that they came with suspenders - which definitely makes me feel a little bit like a 1920s gangster?! Ha ha! All kidding aside, I love the shape and hold of these styled pants. They're empowering and when it comes right down to it, you'll look like you mean serious business, but in a good way! It is definitely not a man's world! To complement the strong long lines of the pants and suspenders, I paired it with a black chiffon blouse from ASOS. It gives the whole outfit a little softness - keeping it feminine.
One of my favorites when it comes to Italian leather is Bottega Veneta. Their leather feels like butter and the quality; superb. I paired my favorite chocolate brown plaited loafers with a matching bag. I love the texture of both - gives the outfit a modern but edgy look. I always got to have a little something extra when it comes to my style! This Bottega bag is from Purses for Nurses, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to make a lasting improvement on global healthcare by funding volunteer trips that send nurses to the places they are needed the most!
