Stretchy Fancy Zipper Pants + Free Jewelry.

sponsored giveaway

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a stylin’ post.

Don’t get it twisted, I’m still looking fly.  You know, mostly.  Like with a coat on.  And boots.  Because, brrrrr.

It’s just that I find it ridiculously difficult to take good style photos.  I wind up with a bunch of pics like this…

winter style

Because my arms are only so long.  And I am not a pro-selfie taker.  And, I get sick of asking DudeDad to snap pics of me, and then hearing him sigh, and then giving him the eye until he gets up and gives me the JEEZ-let’s-get-this-over-with face, and then trying not to feel awkward because he’s looking at my like are-you-serious-right-now-put-your-deuces-away, and then snatching the camera away from him as I stomp off in a huff to cry while I take shots of my shoes because I can see those no problem.

It’s just exhausting.

Only, every now and then, I stumble across something so stylin’ that all of that ugly is worth it.  Or, it’s below the waist awesome that is easy to capture all by my lonesome.

Today is one of those times because I got my first pair of zipper leg pants since 1992 this past weekend!

I so freaking love them!

After a stroll through H&M where I came thiiiiiiiis close to leaving empty handed, I stumbled across a pair of stretchy fancy pants haphazardly wedged in between a chunky sweater and a puffy vest.  It was fate that I discovered them and, as I shimmied into them in the dressing room, I knew they were made just for me.

So comfy, so chic, so shiny with their up the back of the calf zippers.

Everyone should have a pair.


Also awesome, jewelry!

I am so bad about getting quality accessories, but when I do I like to make sure they are classic type pieces that will look good on me even when I’m wrinkly and old.

Perfect example: Blue Nile Sterling Silver Necklace

blue nile necklace

Blue Nile is a great place to pick up some good accessories to wear or gift or just gaze at through your computer screen when you find the diamond studs you’ve been looking for, because, whoa, thirteen hundred bucks is a lot of freaking cash!

Get your mind off that and back on this.  Because this free jewelry can actually be yours!

Gift giving is awesome.

    Love those leggings. I have some similar from Zara that I’ve had for a long time. They are so versatile, aren’t they? I love that little necklace and would give it to my 21 yr old daughter, who is working her way thru university while trying to save the world. :) But seriously, she’s spearheaded a campaign to abolish shark fining and belongs to the David Suzuki foundation to protect old growth forests. This twig necklace would be very symbolic of her to her. My favourite jewellery these days are bracelets. Not sure how that evolved but I love wearing bracelets every day. :)

    My fave accessories right now are probably scarves. I’ve recently discovered just how well they can complement any outfit. Also, I like bangles/bracelets. This blog is awesome, btw. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity :)

    Infinity scarves and boots are my favorite things right now! And I love bigger earrings — they go great with curly hair :)

    I’m a necklace girl. I love chunky statement necklaces in stone, and wear them year-round. I’m trying to do more scarves lately, but just find them awkward.

    I love the zipper detail on your pants, how fun!! I think my favorite accessory is a necklace. They can be small and classic or fun!
