Today I’m being really realistic and featuring this $905 wool sweater! Perfect for heading into summer, no? Besides the fact that it’s wildly impractical, I’m obsessed with this Stella McCartney sweater. Right now, we’re seeing a lot of “novelty” designs – think Jeremy Scott at Moschino or Yazbukey – and I’m loving it. Fashion can be so serious, it’s nice to see some fun, almost sarcastic looks floating down the runways. Sometime next week I’m pulling my favorite novelty accessories, but I just had to share this today. It’s so cheeky and fun. When you think about it, for five huge rocks, $905 is actually a deal…

Tory Burch for Fitbit

Happy Hump Day everyone! So, I recently acquired a Fitbit Flex. I must say, it’s definitely made me more active…does walking in place in front of the TV watching Real Housewives count…or? Really though, it’s actually kind of fun tracking steps and challenging yourself to go the extra mile (lol literally). That said, Fitbits are so ugly. Yeah, it might look cute and sporty when you’re running around town in leggings, but put a “real” outfit on and the Fitbit isn’t doing you any favors (ya know, besides counting your steps). I’ve seen girls try to add it to their arm party, and it just looks so out of place. This wrap bracelet is a chic solution! I’m sure you’re familiar with Tory Burch for Fitbit, as the bangle made quite a splash, but this version is so much more attractive. It comes in several different colors/finishes and is $175. Though it might seem like an added expense after already purchasing the Fitbit itself, if it’ll motivate you to move more, it’s worth it. Then again, I’m the queen of buying gym clothes so I’ll work out…Regardless, give this a try if you’re looking for a way to class up your Fitbit!

Subtle Sparkle

Don’t get me wrong, I love a bold statement necklace as much as the next girl, but lately I’ve also been gravitating towards delicate, understated pieces that can easily layer together. I actually think a subtle glimmer on the neckline/wrist can make just as much of a statement. So go ahead, pile on the fine gauge chains and pavé sparkles, they can still pack a style punch! This type of delicate jewelry also makes a great gift – don’t forget Mother’s Day is coming up!  No matter an individual’s personal style, a piece like those pictured above can fit into any jewelry collection.

Clare Vivier & Other Stories

Who’s seen the May cover of Cosmopolitan?  No shade to Madonna but yikes.  While perusing this noted journal of Christianity (haha), I discovered a fun little collab!  We all know Clare V for her fold-over clutches, like this one everyone in the world seems to own, but have you heard of & Other Stories?  I think I live under a rock because this was the first I’d heard of it, though it’s the second collaborative effort between the two labels.  & Other Stories is owned by H&M, which explains the forward thinking designs and European edge. Anyway, back to our girl Clare, this line is lower priced than her primary collection and includes the signature fold-over style clutch.  You can also find a couple bags, pouches, luggage tags, and even a perforated leather smoking slipper, all in brightly hued leather.  Have you ever bought anything from & Other Stories? They’re also doing a little collaboration with Vans, which is just as cool!

I hope everyone is having a Sunday funday, thanks for reading!

Le Specs

Paramount Glasses

Le Specs Paramount Sunglasses – $59.95

Happy Tuesday!  With the sun finally making an appearance after a long Wisconsin winter, I can now justify setting my sights on spring/summer goodies.  This means sunglasses ya’ll!  I’ve been wearing Ray-Bans for years.  You just can’t go wrong with a classic aviator and being super sun conscious, I love that they offer such high UV protection (literally they’re like military-grade).  They’re also polarized, meaning they’re glare reducing and offer a clearer picture.  Recently, however, these Karen Walker sunglasses have been on my radar. I love the circle-lens shape, something about it is so movie star glam.  That said, $280 is a steep price to pay for a non-polarized lens.  Then I discovered Le Specs, and seriously check these out.  There are so many fun styles, but my favorite are the Paramounts pictured above.  They have that oversized Audrey Hepburn look and guess what? They’re polarized, offer maximum UV protection, and come with a 12 month manufacturer warranty. Also, at $59.95 you don’t have to feel bad if you drop them in the lake this summer.  I can’t wait to get my hands on a pair!  What are some of your fave sunglasses?
