Warby Parker - New Collaboration

Hi Guys,

Have you heard of the fabulous brand Warby Parker?

If so, you know that this fantastic brand offers stylish, quality sunglasses and eyeglasses at extremely reasonable prices! If not, you should know that they have fresh picked styles, and play off of classic ones too. You can order multiple frames, try them on in your own home (what!? love that!), and pick your favorite to purchase! The best part of this company though, in my opinion, is that for every pair of glasses sold, the company distributes a pair to someone in need. Fantastic!

My recent crush frame, if I HAD to pick just one, is the Chamberlain, which can be seen here: 

But, more importantly...Today they launched a collaboration with Leith Clark on 5 new frames that I think you'll adore! According to Warby Parker, this collaboration is inspired by smart-looking and smart-thinking individualists, like writer and actress Zoe Kazan, photographed in the collection by noted fashion photographer Pamela Hanson. Each distinct shape features heaps of charm and whimsy. And just like Leith, the collection is ultra-ladylike and spirited.
Here are a few images to get you excited! 

Check out all their styles at:

I know you'll love them just as much as I do!

Outfits & Embellishments

It's Thursday... here's another installment of mood boards for outfit updates!
This week, I'm trying to update my "almost daily uniform" of boyfriend jeans and a t-shirt. It's amazing what a few accessories can do to change a look!

Outfits & Embellishments

Happy Almost Friday!

With the season almost changing (Fall takes its sweet time to get to us here in California), I've been itching for new clothes. However, I decided that this time around, I would try to update my wardrobe with accessories rather than purchase new apparel! I find this to be a fun way to get more life out of those staple pieces that never go out of style. Don't get me wrong, I know there are times when a new item of clothing is a "must," but why not jazz up a well loved shirt and pants, or last season's dress with fun new jewelry!? Here are some "mood boards" for inspiration!
I'm hoping to make this a weekly post, so check back next Thursday for more "Outfits & Embellishments!"

 Jewelry & Bag: My Stella & Dot Site, Clothes: Gap, Shoes: JCrew, Watch: Michael Kors

 Jewelry & Wallet: My Stella & Dot Site, Clothes: Gap & Old Navy, Boots: Old Navy

 Jewelry: My Stella & Dot Site, Dress: Anthropologie, Cardigan: Gap, Shoes: Madden Girl

New 'Do!

It's officially been a week since I chopped my hair off. I must say, it feels good.
I was a in a little bit in shock day 2 and 3, but I think I've got a hang of it now.
I love it, however it takes as long, if not longer, to style as my hair did 6 inches ago!

Something that is fun about my new 'do is that I feel lighter! It's so healthy, and the color is softer so I feel like a new gal. We'll see if I let it grow or keep it this length!

The rest of my outfit... Check out my Stella&Dot Site for the Accessories!

(Pants: Gap (old); Shirt: H&M (old); Scarf: "Union Square in Midnight Blue" My Stella&Dot Site; Bracelet: "Luna Wrap" Stella&Dot Site, Gold Ring: "Gilded Arrow" My Stella&Dot Site; Necklace: "On The Mark" My Stella&Dot Site.)

Happy Friday!

Been Gone So Long...

But I'm back! It's been months since I've blogged... time for that to change. Why? Because I actually have a bit of time back in my little hands! 

A lot has happened in the last few months- got a "promotion" at work, planned a wedding, interviewed for a new job the week before my wedding, got offered said new job 8 days before my wedding, GOT MARRIED!, honeymooned, had my last few days at old job, and then started new job. BAM. 

Yes that is a lot to cram into a small amount of time. But I did it, I'm on the other side, I'm happily 2+ months married and starting to settle in.

I will be blogging regularly again and I'm so excited to be back! 

So, what is my first, extremely important subject, to blog about?
New hair. Yep. Time to change another thing! 

I've had long hair for many years now, and although I'm not going to actually chop it all off (don't let me do that ever!) I do want to freshen it up both with style and color. Here are my inspiration pictures! Appointment is tomorrow... wish me luck!  

Color Inspiration... this is currently the length of my hair.
I love the honey brown and blonde.

Cut Inspiration- medium length bob, but layered? Is that a "Lob?"

Cut and Color Inspiration- Ah, Julia from Gal Meets Glam, so pretty.

 Another shot of Julia from Gal Meets Glam

Cut inspiration again.
I love the easy look of the style. (We all know it won't be that effortless though right?)

Color inspiration... and maybe cut inspiration if I chicken out! 

No style inspired blog would be complete without Lauren Conrad. Love her.

I'll let you know how it goes and will be blogging about all that is and has been going on for me!
