Good morning ladies and gentlemen seriously! You know it's been a busy summer with our bar challenge and all. And it's been quite some time since I have had to address a fashion trend BUT lo and behold last week, one came to me. When did high waisted shorts and bikini tops become a thing? Last week (or maybe the week before, hard to remember with all #100barsofsummer), the blonde and I were at Gino's East (I KNOW... we aren't tourists but we were going to the Comedy Bar). And a young girl walked in wearing high waisted denim shorts with a black bikini top. HUH? This is a restaurant, not a beach bar, there is NO sand or cute guys serving fruity drinks. And then later that weekend, I saw several women walking around in the same outfit. Ladies seriously! Unless you are at a pool or a beach, your bikini top is not a TOP...too much skin ladies, cover it up. And oh, BTW, high waisted denim shorts are really NOT flattering on anyone. And ladies seriously, especially if you are a curvier girl (like me)....if your denim shorts are cutting off the circulation in your legs...they are TOO tight and if they are climbing into your lady parts...really TOO tight. More fabric please.
And to the gentlemen...can we please talk about the tank tops and flip flops? Gentlemen seriously, if you don't want to look at your toes, then other people probably don't either...one word, pedicure. And no that doesn't make you soft...just helps people eat around you who are looking your toes with your flip flops. And guys, I know it is hot, but unless you have arms like Dwayne Johnson (The Rock...so dreamy), we don't need to see it. Leave the tank tops for the gym please.
So I am guess 10 days away from my departure to Africa...I am so excited. The blonde and I have 12 bars left and we have a plan to hit all of them before I leave. And while the blonde says it is the worse idea we have ever had and it feels like a job...we have had a BLAST. Such a fun summer, between all of the fun new bars we have found, my trips to Atlanta, North Carolina and New Zealand and all of the awesome people (read....cute guys) we have met. The blonde even has a boyfriend now...crazy I know.
This will be the last post until I return from Africa, watch my FB page for pics from the trip. And then the blonde and I will have a de-brief on the highs and lows of the #100barsofsummer...We will be doing this debrief on her rooftop deck while eating Rose Gummy Bars...So fun.
Keep it classy everyone.
Keep your chin, heels and standards high...
BONSOIR, CHEERS and CIAO BELLAS!
A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. That's my girl Coco Chanel. Well, being the single gal in Chicago, selling and marketing luxury travel and being a Sorority Director for Gamma Phi Beta, I have a lot to say. So this blog is my random thoughts on everything on love, life, fashion, movies, fitness and beyond and advice on how to be a lady and have some class!
- 39 (AND HOLDING) year old single gal in downtown Chicago who loves Jazzercise, Gamma Phi Beta, friends, family, fashion, fine wine and movies. I will admit I am a SNOB about the following things: wine, coffee, handbags, shoes, cars and men.
