Rain rain, don’t go away!

It’s been really rainy here in FL lately, which is actually kind of GREAT since we can wear all our cute wellies!  I love any chance I get to wear my Hunter Tour wellingtons, they’re a closet staple.  I wear them in the rain with jeans, leggings, dresses, etc.  But also to the beach with the dog so I can run around in the waves.  And I’ve even worn them as snow boots with big fuzzy socks.  They’re kind of perfect for everything.  And at the end of the day, just rinse them off with the hose and stash them back in the closet.

The Hunter Tour boot is much lighter and slimmer than the original ones.  And you can wrap the leg around the base to pack them in your suitcase, too.  They’ve made recent appearances on the blog here and here 🙂

Pray for more rain!

Back in Business (attire)

Hi everyone!  Took a little hiatus for a few months, and now I’m back in business!

Spring has sprung, so it’s time to take all the Fall/Winter pieces in our closets and find new ways to re-purpose them for the warmer weather.

First up:  J.Brand leather skinnies

I love a crisp, striped button-down, and I wear this particular J.Crew basic for work all the time. But for a day of shopping or dinner with friends, instead of pairing it with jeans or capris, I prefer something a little more unexpected. These J.Brand leather pants are such a workhorse in my wardrobe (worth every penny!), and I love them with this look. Add some Prada sunnies, and cute cap-toe ballet flats, and we’ve got casual sophistication… my favorite 🙂

Sunny Monday

Yesterday was such a crazy weather day — 81 degrees in December!  No need for a sweater or jacket, it was pure bliss.  Christmas is right around the corner, hope you are all getting your shopping done!  This comfy outfit got me through the day, with easy-to-slip-on-and-off Rag & Bone Harrow booties, and my new favorite Chanel aviators (last seen here).  And of course, some plaid, since it’s everywhere right now!

Happy Holidays!

The BEST aviators…for those afraid of aviators…

Is it just me, or do Ray-Ban aviators look good on everyone else, but I find them to look ridiculous when I try to wear them?  Surely there must be others out there who feel the same?

I don’t have that perfect, perky little nose.  Or perfectly shaped cheekbones.  So that classic, teardrop Ray-Ban shape just doesn’t look good on me.  So frustrating!

So I set out to find some aviators, and gosh darn it, I wasn’t coming home until I succeeded!

Enter CHANEL.

After trying on a gazillion pairs of glasses at my local Solstice store, the salesgal finally said, “well, I do have a new pair of Chanel frames that I haven’t tagged yet, but you could try them on…”

Ummmmm, of course they’re perfect.  They’re Chanel… obvi.

She told me they have the new “glitter lens”, which almost sent me packing.  I didn’t want some weird sparkly sunglasses that make me look like a preteen, I’m 35 years old for gosh sake!  But they simply just make the lens look more mirrored in the sunlight.  Phew!

So they’re perfect.  With everything.  Dressy, casual, edgy, glam, girlie… they work with everything!  I was so excited at my new discovery that I had to take a shameless car selfie as soon as I left the store!  🙂
