How I Wear Kick Flares


For a while now, I have admired women wearing kick flare jeans. I first noticed this style last fall and winter and although I thought they looked amazing on the women wearing them, I really didn't think I could pull them off. But after pontificating the issue for almost a year and then running across an extremely fashionable pair I decided to take the risk. After all, its only fashion!

I wore mine with a mustard camisole, a cream duster and cream heels.  A belt and my cream tote completed this outfit. I must say I was feeling rather fashionable! I am sure I will get the old, eeewwwww. But I love them! I am already dreaming of more ways to style them. They are fun and I believe a statement piece. Plus, this pair coming from Marshall's didn't break the bank!


I feel like I have been living under a dark cloud for a few weeks now. Oh wait, I have! There are more fires in this part of the country than I can count and they are placed all around us within the state and by the states surrounding us. Most days the smoke clouds our skies so it looks like it will rain any minute but it is just smoke. We can't really go outside for long because it burns our eyes and throats. We of course have air quality warnings. 

To some extent this is normal for Idaho this time of the year. We have so much forest in the state and it gets dry so anything can start a fire. But the last couple of years and this year especially it has been significantly worse. Add to that, our temperatures have been way above average and it is quite unpleasant. But nothing as bad as what Texas has endured so I am grateful. I pray for those who suffer due the floods and fires this summer. 

Thanks for stopping by!
