After trying brand after brand attempting to find the perfect pair of faux leather pants, in the end I wasn't the one who found them. Jim did. He got me these for Christmas, and I've worn them three days in a row I love them so much.
Actually, I wore this exact outfit three days in a row. It's comfortable, so whatevs.

It's been forever since I've done an outfit post for you guys, so here you go!
This past weekend Jim and I attended our friends Sharon & Erik's wedding. It was held here in Williamsburg at the swank King & Grove Hotel. This was a really interesting wedding to dress for, because per the invite it said "Wear What You'd Like" and we knew it was going to be a mix of hipsters, fashion industry peeps (the Groom owns a successful street wear label) and other pretty casual folks.
Jim and I took an edgier approach. Jim got my vote for best dressed dude, pairing a really awesome graphic tee with his old wedding tux and cool sneakers.
I scored this awesome vintage 80's denim bodycon dress while thrifting the weekend before and the second I saw it knew it was perfect to wear to this wedding. My faux leather Gracia jacket Jim got me as a gift on our recent visit to Boston is almost too perfect with it, considering the banding on the jacket complimented the banding of the dress.
I knew I was going to be dancing the night away, and my Olsen Haus cage heels are some of the most comfortable heels I own, and they worked perfect! Added the edge I was looking for with this outfit, while allowing me to dance and run around Williamsburg for hours after the wedding.
This wedding was so much fun, and it was all captured best in the reception's photo booth! Me, the bride Sharon and our friend Glenna (who you may remember from my Wanderlust trip) are in the first two strips. I love the middle one where we're imitating yoga poses, very appropriate considering our recent adventure. The last one features me, Jim, Glenna and her husband Tony livin' it up!
What did you wear to the last wedding you attended?

The one thing that I didn't like about having bright red hair is that it clashed horribly with neon. Last summer I went on a huge neon kick and picked up tons of pieces in highlighter yellow. I absolutely love it! But alas, I couldn't have both the awesome red hair and the neon with it, so I've gone months without wearing one of my favorite colors.
Now that my hair is back to my natural color, that means I can wear it again. Oh neon, I've missed you!
On a totally unrelated note, this entire week I've had to wear flats and I'm so not used to it. I had broken my foot a few years ago and noticed this week after an intense Crossfit session it was starting to bother me in the same exact place. For fear I may have re-fractured it, I figured it best I stay off of it and stick to flats for the next week or so to allow it to get back to normal. I miss my heels though!
Is there a color you love that you feel forced to stay away from?

So it's warm enough nowadays for dresses but not for sandals just yet. I couldn't wait to wear this new graphic, black and white tie dye dress I recently picked up at H&M so I threw on some moto style boots and I was ready to go. I have a feeling this outfit will be a uniform for me the next coming weekends. I LOVE the entire look.
I really like wearing maxi dresses on weekends. They're super comfortable and all you have to do is throw it on over your head and you are dressed and presentable for the day with minimal effort.
Notice a trend here on Brooklyn Bliss? I don't like having to think or put a lot of effort into much of anything. Everything's got to be easy. That and comfortable. I might seem pretty put together but truth is I'm just on auto-pilot and have found systems over the years that work well for me. In all honesty I'm probably one of the laziest people on the planet. Truth.
Now that it's spring, what's been your weekend uniform?

Okay, so go ahead and lock me up. This is seriously pretty much the same outfit I wore last weekend, aside for a few adjustments to accommodate the warmer weather and activities I'd be doing that day. Jim and I decided to do a last-minute Costco run which resulted in me grabbing the first things I saw in my closet and throwing them on. Flat shoes, check. Comfy t-shirt, check. Beanie (my recent obsession), check. Sure, I look like I belong in jail but the outfit did the job.
What item in your closet do you currently have on repeat that should have you thrown in fashion jail?
