BLACK & BLUE & (LOU &) GREY

3 things:

  1. You guys know about Lou & Grey, right? Well, you know how I work at Loft? Lou & Grey is the lounge line for Ann Inc, and we carry it at Loft. I could honestly live in every single piece of the collection. I wish it was all in my closet. 
  2. This half top knot is definitely my new thing. I've been wearing my hair like this a lot. 
  3. I just want to be able to wear my shorts and rompers without tights so baaaaaaaad. 

romper: Lou & Grey / Loft

cardigan: Forever21

FEELING FESTIVE

Hellllllllllo Monday. After a busy yet quiet weekend, I'm not so ready to get back into the work week. You see, this weekend I re-stocked shopHollyDolly at Crompton, did some christmas shopping and gift wrapping, cleaned the entire house with Christmas music playing, tackled 4 loads of laundry, sipped on hot chocolate, and watched Boo race in the Jingle Run. And I broke out my red frames, because they feel very appropriate and festive :)

FOUR EYES

glasses1

Meet my posse: Winston, Sinclair, Sloan, Marlowe, and Jasper. 

I’m a glasses girl. I wear them every day. No really, every day. I hate contacts, and only wear them once or twice a year for specific occasions. So I take my frames collection very seriously. I mean, come one, they’re just like all other accessories. I don’t own just one necklace, or one pair of shoes. So why should I have only one pair of glasses? I match my frames to my outfit, so I need variety. And yeah, having a Warby Parker store so close is kind of dangerous for me, but I’m completely obsessed with them. 

When they’re on my face, I sometimes forget they are there. But I get a lot of questions about them. So I thought, for those of you interested, I would talk a little about my seeing eye friends :)….

Warby Parker, Sloan - These are the newest addition to my collection (thanks to a christmas gift card from my brother!) I absolutely adore the red color. Pops of red are my favorite pops :) (see me in them here). 

Warby Parker, Winston - Winston was my very first pair of Warbys, and they have a special place in my heart. I think they are the boldest on my collection, shape wise. They’re big and square, and have a pretty thick frame (see me in them here and here and here).  

Warby Parker, Jasper - I don’t know how I ever lived without prescription sunglasses. Seriously. If you wear glasses, but don’t have prescript sunglasses, you really need to look into it. It’s a life changer (see me in them here and here). 

BonLookMarlowe - Oh Marlowe. Marlowe doesn’t get nearly as much wear as they deserve. I should remedy that. The blue is SO pretty. And they are my only pair of Bonlook frames. For no reason other than Warby is nearby and more convenient. Unfortunately, I don’t think the Marlowe frames are available anymore (see me in them here and here and here). 

Warby Parker, Sinclair - Definitely my ‘every day’ frames. My go-to frames. I’m pretty sure they go with everything (see me in them here and here).

And now, for even more frames! These are a few more that I’m coveting, above.

Warby Parker’s Durand (#3) came in a close second when I recently purchased my red Sloans. And I’ve been obsessed with the Woow Rock Me frames (#1) from Vizio Optic ever since I wore them in their fall Lookbook. Sadly, they are just way too out of my budget :(. But Rivet and Sway’s Tilda frames (#6) look pretty similar in shape, too! 

So tell me, my fellow four eyes, what are your favorite frames?

Spring Wishlist

————————————— one - two - three - four - five - six - seven - eight - nine ————————————— 

This weather is depressing me. So I’m making up for it with some delusional, pretend shopping. Here’s a look st what is in my fake shopping bag - leather shorts, lots of mint, open toes, and giraffes (obviously). And more glasses, too. I may already have 3 pairs, but I am now convinced that I need a little bit of color.  

What’s on your Spring shopping bag?

Winter and Spring

Lately,  I’ve been finding myself constantly saying - “this outfit would be sooo much better without tights”. 

True dat. 

I’m sick of tights. And I’m sick of wearing the same two beanies over and over again (and I’m sure you are sick of seeing them). I’m ready for you, spring. Do you hear me?

glasses

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with the idea of getting another pair of glasses. I wear mine every.single.day, and would love to have different options. I mean glasses are just another accessory, right? I don’t own just one necklace, or one pair of shoes, to go with every outfit. Right? Right - or at least, in my head.

 So, after my eye exam today, I’m going to order some! And then I’m hoping to ask for one or two more for christmas. Because I’m really that obsessed. And they are all oh, so pretty. How could I pick just one?

1. BonLook - Smoking Hot

2. Warby Parker - Sinclair

3. EyeFly - Krakovska

4. BonLook - Bonnie & Clyde
