Cool Blue

“You are not one of those people now?” said my husband at dinner.  “Yes, she is.  She wore them the whole time in the grocery store.” said my son.  I love my new blue glasses for many reasons.  My love of the color blue is no secret.  They also provide a cooling shade to the sun that is different from any other pair of sunglasses I have and they manage not to be too dark inside.  So rather than switching to my clear glasses or putting them on my head (thus stretching them out) and squinting in the grocery store, I can keep them on.  Now I am that person.  I get why people keep their glasses on inside. Besides I will take the world in a cool blue hue anytime, especially in harsh lighting.

My spring uniform is in full swing.  I am mixing and matching blazers and fun tees with a variety of clutches and denim (or colored denim).  I have gotten so much wear out of these blush velvet heels from a couple of years ago (I have linked several great options below).


Blazer (similar here, here , here  and here)

Sunglasses (also love these (under $100!), these , these and these)

T-Shirt (also love this, this and this)


Denim (similar here and here)

Happy Styling!




Clutching my Heart

I have been building my collection of clutches for a while and recently added acrylic dividers (similar here) to my closet to make my collection easier to see and access.


My son was particularly helpful with this project and kept pulling the J. Crew silver one with the perforated hearts (pictured above) and telling me that I needed to do a Valentine’s post.  It got me thinking that Valentine’s themed clutches work year round.  Who doesn’t want to carry a heart around or liven up an outfit with a pop of pink or red?

I recently ordered three (!) from Parker Thatch as a Valentine gift to myself.  They have an amazing selection and you can even add a love letter to them. They arrived with a lovely note.
