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.

New England Charm

Faux fur vest: Rachel Zoe via Shopbop (last year) // Boyfriend shirt: Gap // Skinny jeans: Paige Denim via Nordstrom Rack // Bow flats: Ivanka Trump via Nordstrom (similar here) // Tiered necklace: Target // Round sunglasses: Target (similar here) // Watch: Invicta, borrowed from le hubs // Nail polish: Sonia Kashuk in Golden Ticket

Architecture is much like fashion, with different styles, nuances and personal flair. On this overcast day, le hubs and I snuck in a trip to Starbucks to add a little charm to the morning. While we weren’t in New England, the building that served as this photo shoot’s backdrop paid no mind.

This morning, my husband actually embarked for our home state, where I followed a while later after wrapping up some large projects at work. My style stuck out there, but I, too, paid no mind. I was true to my own style and carried on.

However, unlike this beautifully wind-worn backdrop, my style inspiration is a fluid, ever-developing entity. I love looking back through photos and seeing how my personal style has evolved — and recognizing that I have never felt more myself than I do now. And that leaves me feeling charmed.

What keeps you charmed and new? Do it today.

Shorts Chic

Faux fur vest: Rachel Zoe (last year, new version here) // Black cardigan: Express (old, new version here) // Sheer black blouse: Pleione via Nordstrom Rack (similar here) // Perfect black cami: Banana Republic // Bow belt shorts: Mimi Chica (similar here) // Espadrille wedges: Target (similar here) // Round sunglasses: Target (similar here with flair) // Gold layered necklace: H&M (last year, similar here)

Getting things done requires an outfit that can move, and being myself requires that it be chic. What better combination than a faux fur vest by one of my favorites, Rachel Zoe, and some bow-belted shorts? I have been loving an all-black combination with a little pizazz for a chic surprise; so quintessentially NY while I enjoy my CA lifestyle. Maybe someday I’ll try the big city, but for now, I’m loving my beautiful bay.
