Remember these sunglasses?  They were my absolute favorites last season, but this year, I’ve been falling in love with aviators more than ever!  Still, though, when I was searching for the perfect pair to go along with this dress, these were what I reached for in an instant.

Because, let’s face it: they’re fun without being too serious, flattering for just about any face shape, and totally easy to wear.  Best of all, they’re about $20 a pair (you can find them at your local CVS, Walmart, Walgreens or Target), so at that price, stock up in case you need extras! 

And, seriously: this outfit is all about the accessories.  Perfect sunnies, perfect chic necklace, perfect purse.  This jeweled necklace is part of the Stripes and Sequins x Bauble Bar collection, and Grace is so incredibly talented and I’m thrilled to wear her beautiful pieces!  Look for lots more in coming posts.

hints of fall

Maxi-Final-4

One of the most insane things about living in Houston is that when the rest of the world starts drooling over fall clothes — all those streamlined jackets and luxe cashmere knits — we are still sweltering in 100+ degree weather for, oh, say, another three months or so

So, take the title of this post for what it’s worth: here in Houston, it’s mid-August and there are no hints of fall in sight.  But if there were, this leather vest would be the first thing I grab — as it is, it’s mostly useful for battling frigid restaurant-and-office air conditioning systems! 

Or… for Fashion Week?  Can you believe it’s that time again?  I swear, it comes earlier every year!

Also, I have to let you guys know — when I bought this maxi dress, it was full price (boo!) but it’s now on sale for 50% off, and still available in almost every size.  Unbelievable!
