I recently bought a pair of See by Chloe high-waisted flares (they fit like a dream!) that sort of inspired my this vibe — I can't wait to wear them with shrunken white tees and fitted polos. I've always loved a polo shirt, perhaps inspired by my youthful golfing days. But not just any polo — no logos, a perfect fit, delicate buttons (Toteme uses mother of pearl buttons), and only in black or white. Lastly, because the 70s isn't the 70s without throwback shades, I have been ogling Celine's summer 2018 sunglass collection. Call me crazy but I just bought this pair for my trip to LA and I plan on wearing them all summer long.
on my mind
I am very particular about sunglasses — when I find a pair I love, I wear them for years (literally), so I always find a need to add a new pair to my collection.
When looking for the perfect sunglasses, the fit, shape, versatility and designer all go into my consideration. Rather than following seasonal trends, I prefer classic styles and colors (black and tortoiseshell, always) and invest in quality. I find that when you do invest in a quality pair, you're less likely to regrettably leave them in the backseat of an Uber.
Tip: to avoid faux lighting, always try sunglasses on a sunny day and ask a sales associate if you can step outside the store with a handheld mirror. I did this one time at the Dior Beverly Hills and it ultimately changed my big decision making purchase.
Below are sunglasses I'm loving right now for summer 2017.
It's no secret that I've always loved fur, but this season I'm really feeling fun fur in shades of blue, green, and even blush tone pinks. Given that I'm slightly allergic to color, especially in the cooler months, I'm going to take this as an opportunity to not wear head-to-toe black or grey, and add some color to my Christmas list.
