Daily Covet: Warby Parker Sunnies

You know me, I can’t pass up a pair of fabulous sunglasses!

So when Warby Parker collaborated with luxury brand, Maiyet, on these limited-edition “Bird” sunglasses, I also couldn’t resist putting them on my Daily Covet.

These totally gorge Italian-crafted sunglasses are made from contrasting premium, earth-toned cellulose acetate and are available in three awesome color combinations.

My absolute faves are this “Bird” striped oystershell with jet black pair. They are so retro-Hollywood.


As always, Warby Parker makes a donation of a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair purchased. Maiyet also makes a donation to their Nest foundation that is dedicated to training and developing artisan entrepreneurs.

I may be very fortunate, but I’m desperately “in need” of these Warby Parker Bird sunnies!

Daily Covet: Beach Bag Bingo

On this most dreadful of days, it seems only fitting that I’d be searching for lovely weather essentials for the pool, the lake or the beach. Here’s a roundup of a Bingo’s game worth of cool beach bags I’d love to carry everything I own sunscreen, pool toys, floaties, magazines and snacks in.

How about these cute Billabong bags… how do you choose just one?!

Billabong Essential Bag, SwimOutlet.com $24.95



These Scout bags are some of my absolute favorites. The adorable pattern options and coordinating accessories are but two of the reasons. The other is the fact that the coated canvas make them ideal for seafaring (pool or lakefaring too) days!



If you’re tired of losing small items at the bottom of your beach bag, this LeSportsac Clear Haven Tote is for you. The clear fabric means you can see everything in your bag at one time!




Here’s a good Independence Day option for those of us stateside. Tory Burch’s red, white and blue canvas tote is perfect for celebrating with a poolside barbeque and some festive fireworks.




What screams summer sophistication more than Target’s oversized tote with a gold-toned handle? I’m loving this bag for more than just the beach, that’s for sure… and it’s inexpensive – a definite bonus!



Well, that’s a wrap, as they say! Too all my American readers, Happy 4th of July. Enjoy your celebrations and stay safe!

And for my foreign friends, bon weekend! (Sorry that’s the only one I know with any certainty.)


Daily Covet: H&M Striped Dress

Happy Friday bloggy friends!

I’m running late today… well, maybe this entire week.

But never fear, I’m back with my next daily covet. No surprise, it’s from one of my absolute favorite destinations for shopping – H&M!

This adorable blue and white striped frock is my newest obsession. The pleating provides some wonderful waist cinching and the cute, short shape is ideal for my short shape!

I’d love to pair this cute dress with hot pink satin bow flats or neutral sandals for my Easter dress. But who are we kidding? This could just as well be worn for date night with some peep-toe pumps or strappy sandals and a sleek clutch.

The possibilities are positively endless!



Daily Covet: Louis Vuitton Chantilly GM

I have this renewed appreciation for the cross-body bag. I used to be more of a big bag girl – mostly because I can still carry a fabulous handbag to camouflage diapers, wipes, sippy cups and snacks.

My trip to New York a couple of weeks ago had me digging out my old Coach Station Bag – which I adore. But the bag is that soft and luxurious leather that Coach is famous for – in black. And since I turned over a new leaf and packed lighter than ever before for the weekend – my black Coach bag perfectly matched (read got lost in) all my black clothing.

That’s why I’ve decided that I need a bag that is equally as convenient and equally as timeless as my Station Bag. And while it shouldn’t be equally as black as my other bag, this Louis Vuitton Chantilly GM crossbody sadly won’t be as equally well-priced either.

It does, however, fit into my two-year-old motto, “Buy less. But buy better.” And it has that cool, new-ish peek-a-boo red trim on the strap. Love.


Daily Covet: Camel Coat

Camel coats seem to be everywhere this fall, but the fact is: a fabulous camel coat has always been a fashionista’s cold-weather staple.

Sadly, this fashionista has never – not once – owned a camel coat!

So, I’m on the hunt for something lovely in one of the rare neutral browns I might look good in. This Max Mara Ragni coat is one that I absolutely love. I adore the funnel neck and the oversized fit. I’m also crazy for the not-quite-full-length sleeves and the car-coat length that won’t get in your way when you’re doing all the things we girls need to do when we’re not shopping!

It might be a bit pricey, but since I’d wear it for the rest of my life – maybe it’s worth the splurge?

Daily Covet: Chloe Drew Calf Hair Shoulder Bag

I’ve always been a fan of CHLOÉ handbags (who isn’t?) but have only had the pleasure of admiring them from afar. In this case, I’m getting up close and personal – but only virtually.

The truth is, anything in leopard-print calf hair goes straight to the top of my “If I only had this” list!

And this little CHLOÉ bag with a big price tag is there… maybe twice, I love it so much!

From cargo pants to a little black dress, this could be one of the most versatile bags around. At that price, it’d better be!
