Smith Optics Summer Sunnies


Doesn’t a great pair of sunglasses make every outfit instantly just a bit cooler? (Unless you’re wearing them inside. At night. In which case, you just look slightly douchey.) I’m so in love with my new Smith Optics sunglasses.  They’re a rounded frame with a cat eye shape. Slightly oversized but not enough to make you look like a bug. With some awesome polar gray green lenses, they’re just as perfect for summer walking adventures in the hills as they are for the pool or beach.  At just over $100, they won’t break the bank either. Black isn’t available online at the moment but snag this perfect for summer, bright pink pair from Altitude Sports instead!

*sunglasses gifted, but my opinion that they’re awesome is completely true.

Splurge/Steal: The YSL Arty Ring


YSL Arty Gold Plated Ring – $290


Oasap Golden Tone Oversized Ring – $21

As a huge fan of chunky rings, I have long worshipped loved the look of the YSL Gold Plated Arty ring.  Sadly, I don’t love the almost $300 price tag. Well, Oasap now makes an alternative which is much easier on the pocketbook. Sure it’s total costume jewelry and may fall apart, chip off or break after some wear and tear. But, at $21, it’s a fun alternative while it lasts! And at that price, perhaps you should consider stacking up on a few in different colors.

Here’s a few images of the YSL ring in all its glory…

I’ve always loved the detail a pair of earrings can add to an outfit. I often find myself wearing big earrings because they add a fun, whimsical element to whatever I put together. But sometimes smaller studs and more delicate pieces are also a fantastic, understated accessory to top off a look. For some delicate earring options, check out this selection from FreshTrends. Below are some pics of my own earrings as well as some earring looks I wish were mine!
