reversecommuter has just discovered an interesting fact…

My wardrobe is not exactly up to code in the Muslim world.

Normally that would not be of particular concern, living in boston and all…but I am traveling to Dubai later today!

Tune in next Wednesday for my next posting!

Busy first weekend of Spring.

Funny how fast those two days fly by!

Saturday morning was my last long training run before the Boston Marathon (just one little tiny month away!!!!).  It is an amazing experience training on the Marathon route with hundreds of other runners, you see some incredibly inspiring individuals, are greeted with a ton of happy smiles (despite the miles), and on occasion even get a high five!    Boston Strong INDEED!

Still chilly in Boston so reversecommuter’s shearling is still getting used.  Rumor has it there is yet ANOTHER snowstorm coming on Wednesday – so not in Vogue!

O.W.O = One Weekend Outfit.

Went into Boston’s South End yesterday for a little promenade, lattes and a red velvet cupcake for the little dude (big siblings out at various play dates).

SE3

The THAW has officially begun, which in Boston means the snow begins to melt and the salt is still inches deep on the streets – do not wear the good boots out!

Now that winter is on the way out, reversecommuter is getting all reved up about Spring Collections and a big ol’ dose of retail therapy!!  Jonathan Simkhai’s quilted pony hair bomber from Fall ’13 reminded me of his incredible Spring Collection.  There really is no simple explanation of how reversecommuter’s mind works!  :)

SE6

Bought an awesome new cookbook on my walk – have to share as it is meatless Monday, and this cookbook is vegetarian deliciousness!  Click here to get it!

Speaking of vegetarian…Don’t forget to like reversecommuter’s FaceBook page to be entered into the KALE sweatshirt giveaway – click this blue phrase for all the details  – contest over tomorrow!

Cropped Knitwear & The Polar Vortex

Cropped Knitwear and leggings?!  GOOD GRIEF reversecommuter has completely lost it!

No need to panic – I can explain.

Ever wake up in the winter and think “I really have nothing to wear, it’s cold, dark and cold!    Leggings and a black top, good enough.”

 NOOOOOOOO!  Not good enough, but a great base to build on.

Add a fun skirt on top of the leggings – go short!  Then add a sweater to the ensemble et voila!

Not only are you now in an outfit that makes you feel great but you are even rocking THE BIGGEST TREND for Spring 2014 – cropped knitwear!

Ta-Daaaaaaaa!

Here are a couple of skirts that would totally work over leggings (and then later after the THAW without leggings too!)

Tis the season to run around from 5:30am through till midnight – OY!

What to wear to take you from School Party to  Girls’ Luncheon, to Afterschool Celebration to Christmas Pageant to Drinks & Dinner with friends?   (besides coverup under the tired eyes?!)

V2

In a word – VELVET.  It’s big this year, everyone from Banana Republic to Victoria Beckham Denim is offering it!  Click the blue to go shopping!  I have a friend that even bought two pairs (one dress pant and one jeans version…wonder if she kept them both?!).

V4Throw a scarf on & interchange flats, boots & heels to help carry the outfit through the busy day & night!

Velvet pants Prada, shearling Miu Miu.

 

Lala Lanvin

Lanvin makes me silly.

Girly frilly fashion obsessed silly.  The lace, the silks, the feminine cuts, the leather.

Have to break in the riding boots before the snow arrives…

Who knew reversecommuter was so flexible when it comes to fashion? (Corny double entendre lol!)
