Polka Dots and Glitter

IMG_8438 Last up in this 3 part series? How to style this dress for 80 degrees and sunny!

IMG_8459 California loves air conditioning inside, but we love to spend our time outdoors, so layers will always be critical.  I continue to be obsessed with this military jacket, and love its light feel but ability to warm you up! If you haven’t bought one yet… get on it!

IMG_8443 I also love to embrace the dichotomy of super feminine and masculine simultaneously, and feel like glitter sandals with a military jacket does just the trick!

Accessories will always have a place in my heart… some of my staples are incorporated into this look – my GiGi cross body bag and my Chanel sunglasses.

How to Fit Ray-Bans

April 2, 2014


I love aviator glasses and Ray-Bans are no exception… but I found a few days into owning a pair that they wouldn’t stay on my head!  My Social Media feeds are filled of people running, hiking and playing in them – so how can this be?! Anytime I was reading on the beach, taking a walk with friends or even something as quick as picking up take out, they would be sliding down my face. Not ideal for a $100 pair of sunglasses that are supposed to be protecting your eyes, not your nose.


Luckily my youngest sister swooped in to save the day! Here is her super easy tutorial on how to get those glasses to stay put, without making a trip for a special fitting at the Sunglass Hut.

*Sorry if you don’t own a pair, or do and don’t have this problem… 🙂

1. The gold aviators are the “Before” and the black aviators are the “After.” Notice how the black are tapered inward?

2. Begin by laying your glasses on a flat surface.


3. Hold the arms of your sunglasses with your thumbs facing each other (as in the picture below). Gently push in the earpiece inward.


4. The image below depicts the final product of Step 3. Note that you are bending it slightly in – you just want it to have some more pressure on your temples so it isn’t sliding off your face.


5. Hold the arms of your sunglasses once again, but this time with your thumbs facing downward and parallel to each other (as in image below). Gently bend the earpiece down.


6. This step allows you to bend the earpiece to wrap around your ear more as to prevent any movement.


7. Tweak the arms according to your ear placement, face structure, etc., but you should be good to go in under 5 minutes!

6. Now the “Before” and “After” match!

Black BlazerYes, it’s Tuesday… but sometimes you just want to be laid pack but with a professional twist.  My answer? A fitted blazer.

A simple tee, with skinny jeans, simple tennis shoes and a few glam accessories (ie. crocodile clutch and bedazzled headband) and I’m all set!

Comfortable and chic!
