Ripped Knees

I’m in love with these jeans from ASOS. After seeing them on The Native Fox I really loved the fit and color. I’m always hesitant to buy jeans online since I’m not always aware of my sizing (especially UK sizing) but I gave it my best effort and ended up with the perfect soft pair of denim that hugs you in all the right places. Kept it simple with a black tank and my green army button up. Perfect outfit for spiced iced chais, pastries, and a perfect view of the ocean.

Over-All

overallbeach1

I’m so glad overalls have come back into trend, I have had the most difficult time trying to thrift a pair that 1) fit me 2) had the correct wash and 3) wasn’t overtaken by Winnie the Pooh patches. Luckily I stumbled upon PacSuns blowout sale which had these Bullhead denim dungarees on mega sale. I love the dark wash and the baggy bottom half. I’ve really been into this outdoors/workwear look in my outfits. I’m not sure if it’s the new hair or my Timberlands (which I have an unhealthy obsession with) turning me towards this new style…but it’s probably both. Happy Monday!

Warby Parker – Palm Canyon Collection

palmcanyon-blog-1

Lush desert landscapes, color pops of lush green foliage, cascading palm trees rustling with the dry breeze; this is the picturesque scene of what I have come to love about Palm Springs, CA. While I haven’t been for years, I still manage to get that old Hollywood glamour vibe from the surrounding deserted car washes, theaters, and restaurants every time I can visit. These inspirational landmarks have inspired a new collection of eyeglasses & sunglasses by Warby Parker.

There are four frames within the collection that took over a year to design and construct with no two frames exactly the same. I have to say my favorite pair would have to be the Duckworth Painted Desert eyeglass frames. The woodworked texture is phenomenal and the round shape is something I am becoming more and more accustomed to when looking for new eyewear. The Wheeler sunnies in Revolver Black remind me of a smaller version of Celine’s with it’s overly thick black frames. I have been lusting for a pair similar to that of Celine but without the Celine price tag attached and these are the perfect compromise.

What I love most about Warby Parker is their at-home try-on functionality. You can pick 5 pairs of eyeglasses or sunglasses to try on at home 100% free for 5 days! I have always been hesitant to purchase any type of eyewear online without trying on something similar beforehand and Warby’s at-home try-on eliminates all risk. Not to mention the price of frames INCLUDES your prescription lenses. I know, I was just as shocked to find that out as well! Kudos must also go out to their online marketing approach. Their simplistic design almost makes you want to purchase something outright, by far the best website I have yet to visit for trendy eyewear at reasonable prices. For those of you who (like me) want to make your eyewear selection as large as your overflowing shoe collection this is the way to go.

View some additional shots from the Warby Parker Palm Canyon Collection below and be sure to visit their website here for more information! I will be sending off for my 5 day try-ons ASAP.

Zara Basics

Zarabasics1

Had the perfect weather on Saturday for big coats and little skirts. I have gradually been transitioning my closet into basic pieces that will stand the test of time. After going through a ton of old clothes from high school/college I have realized that just because you have space for things doesn’t always mean you should keep them. Decided to play down the shortness of the skirt with a baggy t-shirt and keep my legs looking lengthy with these heeled boots. My name is Stephanie and I have a Zara addiction.

Green Leather

So as you might have already guessed…I chopped off all my hair! I feel lucky to be one of those individuals who isn’t super attached to my hair. I’m constantly bored with my cuts so going short just seemed the right move, it’s a vicious cycle. Either way I really like it and hopefully it will reflect well in my style.

Just a quick post today, I received this jacket for Christmas after almost making the purchase a few months back but turning back on it. So glad my mom kept it in mind for me! I am obsessed with leather jackets and the green just really seems to pop for fall/winter. What you can’t see in this picture is the back of the jacket which sits higher up on your back and crosses over. Will definitely be posting more of this jacket when the time comes considering we were losing light quickly today! I also grabbed these boots from Zara with the gift card Nick got me for Christmas. Although they are a size too big they are incredibly comfortable and hits in the perfect spot to wear with mini dresses this spring!
