Resort 2017: My Favorite New Eyewear Looks

Shot_13_Still-life_Group_019

I’ve always been a fan of Warby Parker’s cool eyewear & sunglasses & their modern aesthetic. For this Resort ’17 season, they have produced a brand new streamlined collection in rich acetates & metals that are perfect for tropical getaways or simply hitting the city streets in style.

Weather you are heading out of town to somewhere warm for a fab holiday vacation or you are city bound, it’s always fun to get a head start on the spring season by grabbing a few good resort items. And what better place to start that with something you can wear every day…..your eyewear & sunglasses!

I was especially drawn to this sunglass style: Cleo because of the striped oyster shell frames with the brown gradient lenses. This style is very cool with a vintage-modern flair. The Cleo is great for brightening up your look while blocking out those rays on a cold winter day. They also would go equally well when lounging on the beach or by the pool on a holiday getaway. I love the versatile look & feminine flair. (Cleo also comes in black)

My other favorite sunglass style from the Resort ’17 collection is Wyatt in Marbled Walnut with the Brown Gradient lenses…..These sunnies have a modern, yet classic look that is perfect for everyday wear. Take a simple jeans and t-shirt look to another level with these retro modern specs.

For eyeglasses I really like bold styles that stand out & add a little mystery to your look. Cat eye frames have always been a personal favorite and the Warby Parker’s Wren frames do not disappoint! I’m loving these frames in the Opal Tortoise color as they would go well with just about any outfit & add a super chic yet classic twist to any look.

Overall, I’m loving the new Warby Parker Resort 2017 collection as it’s both a little bit vintage and a little bit modern….but what’s also so great is that for every pair purchased, a pair is distributed to someone in need! (Find out more here)

From Wine to Rose….all the Holiday #Outfitinspo you need for the Fall/ Winter season…..The Look #32

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m getting excited for the holiday season & the chance to get a little dressed up for all the different holiday events. This season my absolute favorite colors have been Wine & Rose Pink and I just love how these colors look together and how they mix and match so effortlessly in different fabrics & textures.

 

I like to keep my pretty holiday looks a little bit casual and to mix them with some edgier accessories like a studded handbag or some sleek rock n roll style boots. It’s fun to play with different looks and to combine feminine fabrics such as lace, satin or velvet.

Wishing you a happy & healthy holiday season with lots of style, fun & happiness!

 

Here are some of my favorite looks for the fall/winter holiday season…..

Loving the colors wine & rose pink in all shades, bell sleeved cozy knits, satin & velvet, lace tops & faux fur jackets

The Look You Need Now: Transition Into Fall with Studs & Dark Floral Prints-“The Look #28”

We just got back from a quick trip to Los Angeles & since the weather is still so warm here in New York City I’m still wearing all my favorite summer dresses on repeat. But with September coming up & right around the corner, new fall items have been on my mind.

Sometimes a few new key pieces can be added in to blend with your summer wardrobe & give you a head start on the fall season.

Here are some of my favorite new items for fall/ transition in prices ranging from “the splurge to the steal” :

TRANSITION-INTO-FALL

  1. The Embellished MOTO Jacket (throw it over your summer dresses at night when it gets a little chilly now & wear for a cool daytime look for fall)
  2. STUDDED Booties (fall is always a great time for new boots, but with all the cool new styles out now, who can wait till then? Pair these with bare legs and a skirt for now & anything else for later)
  3. DENIM MINI: the perfect transition piece to wear now and later that ultimately goes with everything
  4. HANDBAG with Hardware (a “wear everywhere” bag for an extra edge that takes you from a daytime look to girls night out)
  5. The Dark Floral Print Top (looks great with denim shorts or a skirt & sandals now, then pair with skinny or distressed jeans & boots for fall)

Can you tell which ones are “the splurge” & which ones are “the steal” ?

While summer may be in full swing, behind the scenes all the stores are getting ready for the next fall season…This fall there are so many fun & beautiful options to make an easy transition into the new season. I’ve been looking for the new essential pieces that will transform your closet and finding the new season to be both romantic & edgy….& playful yet strong.

I’m loving all the studs and metallic hardware on jackets & accessories combined with the easy silhouettes of romantic floral print dresses. Go edgy with black leather & studs & ladylike with floral prints & texture. The new season is all about mixing it all up for your own style & #OOTD, feeling strong like a #GIRLBOSS and just having fun!
