Must. Have. Sunglasses.

For my thirteenth birthday I was given one of the best presents a budding fashion addict could receive: a brand new pair of acetate Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses. For two whole months they were my most prized possession. I felt BEYOND cool wearing them. I was the chicest girl in the seventh grade. Then I lost them. I literally was physically ill the day it happened. I was devastated. For months I pined for my designer sunglasses. And for the next seven years I swore off expensive frames (or my mom refused to buy them for me). I could not go through the pain of losing another pair.

About a year ago I decided it was time to finally try again at being an owner of designer sunglasses. I bought a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs aviators for $99 and I still own them to this day! It’s a miracle! (Knock on wood) Since I’ve proven to myself I can take care of a pair of pricey frames I’ve decided it’s time to expand my collection.

Of the ones above which pair do you think I should invest in first? I’m really digging the YSL cat-eyes…

1. House of Harlow Marie Sunglasses
2. Cheezy 80’s Neon Frames
3. Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer
4. Prada “Baroque” Round Sunglasses
5. Yves Saint Laurent Cat Eye-Frame Acetate Sunglasses

Ladylike Eyelet

May I present to you my new favorite skirt. I bought this pretty little number from J. Crew back in May and it has quickly become one of my most-reached for summer pieces. It’s sophisticated enough to wear to work but casual enough that I can wear it to class in the fall. I’ve already started daydreaming about the large, boho sweaters and slub tops I am going to wear with it. In this outfit I’ve paired my pretty pink eyelet skirt with one of my absolute favorite Theory blouses. I love the color combination of pink and pewter. The harsh, masculine pewter color looks perfect against the femininity of the skirt. 

Isn’t my Grandma’s havanese puppy Picabo cute?
