Feeling Good

Aviator sunglasses: 1903s in black c/o Ellison Sunglass Co. // Angora sweater: Ann Taylor // Faux leather skater skirt: H&M // Faux fur vest: Rachel Zoe (last season, similar from this season here) // Black opaque tights: L’eggs via Walgreen’s (similar from ASOS here) // Black bow flats: Ivanka Trump via Nordstrom (sold out, similar here) // Bordeaux handbag: Michael Kors Astrid satchel // Gold tiered necklace: Target // Men’s watch: Invicta, borrowed from le hubs

When I discovered Ellison Sunglass Co. through The Facets Magazine, I was really moved. Not only do they have beautiful design, with every purchase of a pair of Ellison sunglasses, they cover the cost of a corrective eye surgery for someone in need. Their motto, “Look Good. Do Good.” is exactly what I love to see in fashion. Brands that find a way to give back top my list, and I couldn’t be more proud of my Ellison 1903s! Le hubs also loves them and has already borrowed them a few times. Nothing like a pair of his-and-hers sunglasses to make a relationship solid!

This #getitgirl is also feeling good about life. On a sartorial note, I have been slowly adding some spice to my wardrobe of basics, and I am loving the way my style is growing. This applies to life, too: as I grow wiser and more seasoned, that makes the sweetness that much better.

Xo, Sarah

Black on Black

Faux leather panel pencil skirt: Forever21 // Gold-trim button-up: Forever21 // Pointed pumps: Nine West // Black moto: Target // Round sunglasses: Target // Perfume necklace: H&M // Men’s watch: Invicta

I kind of love these photos, because you can’t even see the textures of the outfit with the magical backlight of the perfectly pastel Pacifica sunset. My favorite way to do a single-tone outfit is to incorporate multiple fabrics and finishes, and this faux-leather panel pencil skirt from Forever21 is one of my favorite recent finds, considering my affinity for donning black. The gold collar detail on the sheer black blouse adds a regal flash of sass to a boardroom-ready ensemble. Paired with my favorite pumps, this outfit took me through multiple meetings and a few intense deadlines with nary a flaw to be seen.

The beauty of a black on black look is that you’re virtually guaranteed to present a polished front. The fact that I’ve seen some tweets calling this a fall trend makes it even better. Parisian chic, order for an entire season. Check, please!

Xo, Sarah
